Hypothetically if they banned our firearms

Remember "hypothetically" .
It is being announced all over the news, radios that we need to turn in our firearms at this location within 30 days.
I am just looking for a loophole, perhaps the major of the town tells everyone in the city limits, "if you want to keep your firearms, come to the courthouse and I will deputitize you" Would that be possible? Would States actually stand up and say no it WILL NOT happen? would there be any legal loopholes or is it too early to tell?

Very "realistically" They can have it when they pry it from my cold dead hand!

I think this would cause a massive rebellion.


I know there'll be the few sheep who will be like, "Oh, let's just do what they say......" and go turn their stuff in, but I'd like to see who in the hell the Obama administration would try to use to collect weapons from nearly 28 million people.

If they told me to turn mine in - I'd be out faster than a chubby girl in dodge ball.

This would never ever work.
When you mess with constitutional rights that even the least educated are aware of, you will get massive rebellions and lashbacks across the nation.

well, the termite effect, and the H.R45 bill.
the goverment might not ban them completly but force it where we wll have to sell our guns for food. (Texas had a gun drive where they gave you something like a $100 food card] Or make it so expensive to own the normal people that want a firearm, won't be able to afford one.
Or just tax the hell out of ammo.
We all know they keep adding limitations to our rights. And I think it will only be a matter of time before something more dramtic happens to the 2nd amendment.

They already have their hand in my pocket and take my money before I see it.
They have pretty much enslaved me as a citizen with deficit spending.
They have mortgaged my children and grandchildrens future with even more deficit spending. What more do they want? I ask you!

Now you want me to even think about giving up my firearms?

Its easy to do get around it.

Don't register any firearms, don't brag about what you got and don't show anyone what you got.

To do this you may have to get them through an other then honorable source, but you have it and its off the books.

Edit to add-

No way you will keep it legally.

This video explains whats going on in several states fairley well.

If they tried to ban all weapons they would only be banning the lawful ones.

viva la revolution

I hate to say it guys but this might actually happen...

If it ever happens in the USA, it will be another revolution.

Having said that your government should understand this and never implement such a law, unless they want a large scale revolt to happen.

I honestly think if anything of this nature was attempted, those bearing the newly 'illegal' firearms would in rather short order use them as intended and dispatch from the face of this planet those who were responsible for attempting to affect such a change.

There a mass shooting in Alabama yesterday, apparently involving an AR-15. And there was a school shooting in Germany. I fully expect new anti-gun legislation to be introduced by the end of the week, if not this very afternoon.
This legislation may or may not pass. But as the economy weakens, and people become increasingly angry and desperate, mass shootings will likely increase. And we can expect every single one of these shootings to be accompanied by increased outcry and calls for more gun control. The fact that stricter gun control only makes mass shootings easier to accomplish is meaningless.

The right to bear arms is the line in the sand. If there is a concerted effort by the federal govt. to take guns from the hands of its citizens, there WILL be a revolution in this country.

I saw a news story about two years ago that showed a seven years old girl in Arkansas, I think, firing a 20mm cannon at some old cars in an open field. She was handling like a pro.

I think it'll take more than a news announcement!!

I for one will be on the revolting side. If they start raiding houses, then i will sit and wait till my turn. I might die by a firearm, but I at least made a stand. I live in Alabama and the shooting really got my brain turning.

This story is a sad one. I feel horrible for all involed in this atrocity. This man selfishly took the lifes of nine people, and ruined the lifes of many more. Unfortunitly things like this happen in any society and not just with guns. Does anyone remember the women that drowned her kids in the bath tub? Does that mean that we should ban bath tubs and only allow showers becuase of the potential of drowning. NO!!

I know several people that attend VA tech and were on campus when the shooting accured. Several weeks after I was reading articles of people starting to fight for the right for the students with permits to carry on campus. I am not sure what came of it, but I personally think they were going about it the right way.

I do believe you were right though. This is just going to be used as another piece of evidence in the case to banning guns.

I might be wrong, but I think it was Thomas Jefferson that said, the second ammendment will not be needed till they try to take it away. Or something to that effect.

I will take all my guns and bury them in the desert first.

Then claim i sold them to a dealer years before at a gun show in the neighboring state.

Let them try to prove different.

If things go SHTF then i can dig them up.

Hypothetically, if we lose our guns... a whole mess of bad stuff is entirely possible. Please check this link here for some of the thngs that have happened to other nations when they lost their guns. Read the first page at least and let it sink in a minute.

SLAYER, stay strong, brother. You're not the only one who aint going down with out a fight. They'll get our guns when there's no breath left in our lungs. Taking our guns will probably take place after the declaration of martial law. After that happens, by presidential executive order we have no rights, and military police and or regualr street cops will be able to detain any one they wish with out warrants and with out reason.

"They" will never be able to confiscate our guns. If even a tiny percentage of gunowners is willing to fight back, the force this would represent would be one of the largest armies in the history of the world. How many of the 12+ million guns sold last year do you think will be voluntarily surrendered? Especially when one considers that most of those guns were specifically bought to counter the anti-gun threat Obama presents?

Rest easy, friends. Nobody will be knocking on your doors anytime soon.

Woe to any team of soldiers or police tasked with going door to door confiscating firearms. They might succeed at a few houses, but before long, they would be ambushed and overrun by irate citizens. And it would go from there.
