Here is what i think would happen in a federal firearms confiscation scenario.
I could see alot of people in the more populated coastal states giving up thier legally owned and registered firearms and conforming to the
"laws". While a small portion of the pro gun population move out of the large cities and form small guerilla type militias that fight the
confiscating with insurgent guerrilla type skirmishes.
In the less populated more rural inner states, I could see large militias forming and full scale battles taking place. First in country side
battles, then moving to large scale urban warfare.
They would more then likely have to call out the armed forces to fight these militias. At that point i could see a large portion of federal armed
forces joining the militias only to make them more efficient and powerful in thier resistance movement. This would cause the government such a huge
problem that I dont think the government could stay unified. There would be a splitting off of two groups, a pro government group and pro constitution
group.Basically another civil war.
At this point, the government will be forced to outsource its fighting force to businesses like blackwater and maybe even possibly to foreign
mercenary type organizations which would support the small portion of the federal armed forces that stayed loyal to the government.
It would almost certainly be a long and bloody event. In the end though, I do think that the pro constitution faction would be victorious. Once the
victory was won by the pro constitution faction, I think the states would get together and form a union much like they did during our fight for
independance from England and bring back a government that sticks strictly to the constitution.
The federal government is there to guarantee that the states dont infringe upon our constitutional rights and to protect us from hostile foreign
forces. That is all the federal government should be doing. Nothing more, and nothing less.
