One would hope it wouldn't get to the door to door scenario. I would hope that if they came out with a decision that said there is no right the keep
and bear arms then the citizens would go on the offensive right away.
I wonder what that would look like? Would Montana and state like those secede from the union and they would have an influx of citizens? Or would there
be an armed insurrection? Either way I think there would be enough of the Military or CIA types that would love to kill a bunch of Americans. Look at
the private Militaries of the day... The automation of weapons would be one hell of an obstacle to a march on those in power...
We would need an overwhelming number to beat them. Not that I would think twice. I would rather die on my feet fighting. I just hope in the end we
would win so some normal people would be there to take care of my family as opposed to the FEMA camps....
My real fear is they say we have a right but say the government has the right to regulate... Then you have whack job city consuls "interpeting.
"DC is a prime example. They can have long guns but they must be dismantled and or have trigger locks. If you are allowed to own a gun there
shouldn't be any restrictions on in home storage. There also shouldn't be different regulations between hand guns and long guns but most states
already have those laws.
Keep and Bear arms are really two rights. One is ownership and the other is protection, hunting, training, ect... They already regulate the hell out
of the "bear arms" part of the amendment and I fear when this is over they will have affirmed our right while taking it away altogether...
The whole idea behind the amendment was to keep the government in check with the same weapons they possess. Back then they had basically the same
weapons regular citizens held. Today we don't stand a chance and if we do we will lose large numbers on our side if it came down to it.
It would have been better off left to ambiguity in my opinion.
