I am going to play Devils Advocate here for just one moment. But before I begin let me state for the record, I believe in the Constitution and will
fight in whatever way I can LEGALLY to defend them.
Now to everyone who says "It can't happen here" or "It will never happen here" it IS happening and it CAN happen, how? It's really easy. The
simple majority of the people in this country just don't really care if the minority can keep and bear arms, it's that simple. Once you realize
that 95% of the United States does NOT post on boards like this or even think about this issue day to day, the easier it is to realize that all it
will take is a small thing and most of the county will be behind any change to the rules. This is no longer the 40's 50's or 60's, even the 70's
or 80's, this is a new world, and a new set of rules.
Number 2.. If you have guns and a court suddenly issues a warrant for the police to enter your home and take them, your defending yourself with your
gun "to the death" and letting them "pry it form your cold dead fingers" will be irrelevant, you will be a committing a criminal act if you
refuse and disobey, rights aside, if a court signs that warrant, you must comply, end of story. I wonder how many people when faced with that would
really start shooting cops and becoming criminals themselves.
Number 3.. The government is not against using families to make citizenry comply, I'm finding that one out the hard way in something as simple as a
lawsuit against a government entity (I won't go into details, lets just leave it at it's not pretty) but i the powers that be suddenly decided to
march your family out into your yard and threatened to execute them in front of you, would you a) give up your guns or b) watch your loved ones perish
for an ideal. No offense to anyone here, I'd choose A.
Flame me if you wish but reality is so much different than sitting there making grandiose claims about what you would or wouldn't do.
