You will have to do as you're told, at the end of a better weapon than what you have and more of them.
Actually, no, the American military is no better equipped than I am. And, no, there aren't "more of them"... The American military (all branches
included) contains only about 2 million personnel — can you imagine 2 million people policing over 300 million?
It aint gonna happen.
Even if 75% of all civilians just surrender immediately, that still leaves around 80 million civilians who, not coincidentally, are the American
Gunowners. Some 80 million Americans own nearly 300 million firearms and an incalculable
cache of ammunition.
So, do you seriously think 2 million military personnel are going to strong-arm 80 million armed citizens who KNOW
somebody is coming to take
their weapons, their means of survival?
It aint happening.
Let's take a brief look at what would happen if only 1%
of all gunowners decided to physically fight the military — that's still 8
versus 2 million military personnel. How about if only one-tenth
of 1% decided to fight the government? That's
gunowners versus the military.
No. The military wouldn't (couldn't
) win. They would have to resort to heavy artillery and carpet bombing — but what American soldier is
going to agree to waging heavy warfare against his own country? Very damned few.
The military would suffer desertion like it's never seen. And every deserter would represent another opponent in the battle. As word of the
rebellion spread, the remaining gunowners would certainly take up arms, so the military would suffer a withering defeat; plus, they will have
the American people. The retribution will be swift and merciless.
Should the government decide to wage war on the American people, the best the military could do is stage a coup against the government and topple the
regime. That's the only win-win situation. Otherwise, the military would get its ass handed to them on a silver platter.
This old bullcrap about Americans just giving up
meekly and handing over their firearms without a fight is a lot of police-state propaganda. I
know and have talked about this very subject with many
gunowners from many
walks of life, and none
would go meekly, as long as
their weapons were within reach.
Same here. If I'm going down, I'm taking down my share of the Nazis with me.
