Do you really think you are free because you have guns? You are already in jail, the societies we live in are big outdoor jails, and the kind of weapons they use are note made of steel and wood, but made of ideas and indoctrination. I live in western europe and we don't have guns like you do, but i can tell you that we are as free as you, and it means not much.

The state doesn't need to know what you have.

Most states don't register and private sales are almost always just that, private.

Plus theirs always the ever reliable "boating accident" excuse.

Keep a couple of token guns to turn in and hide the rest in the walls and rafters.

Yours right we have much to lose. Not our stuff but certainly our lives. Having us get killed or locked up here and there is no good. Until some unified resistance in significant numbers can be established a certain amount of concessions will have to be made lest we all die alone or get tossed into a cage.

The taking of weapons will be the line in the sand being crossed. Alot of people i know where i live are at the point of armed revolution and it would take several SWAT teams to rival the firepower that could be unleashed and these guys are NOT the only ones.

I for one wish there were alot less of these shiny little toys, no one seems to want to have a conversation anymore, you get these ppl behind the screens communicating and everyone thinks they are some grand, deep, thinker that has some profound knowledge to spread around the world because no one will call them out on their BS.

What I understand the point of the thread to be is that the Constitution is already being violated, just so far not the 2nd Amendment, and it's only registering a small blip on the pulse of America. This thread is the perfect example of that small blip.

I don't know how successful we can be of getting the corrupt elected officials out when we're not actively discussing the current violations nationwide. Some are in denial of these facts and worse, the people who are raising awareness are being scorned. Then we have to deal with the fact that our current set of rules allow for people with the most money to buy control of our so called government. We are in crisis and too few seem to even be aware of it.

Resistance is futile. You can kill a few cops who are just doing their jobs, but more will come, and with bigger guns, so what would be the point of resisting? The people who they send are not the culprits, fighting them will get you nowhere, and by killing them you are hurting their families and friends. Don't fight fire with fire.

eta: Obama isn't going to show up at your door himself demanding you to turn over your guns.

As per your theory, why try to vote out any elected officials if we can't get them all, or if more are around the corner. Why would someone do such a thing...cause they have hope. Just cause you are surrounded by 15 guys does not mean you just drop to your knees. You continue as long as you can. You try try try again. eventually some one will give up. Don't let hope die


Hope and irrational behavior are not the same thing. I don't understand what gets accomplished through some jihad-like event in which one man kills a couple of people, most likely losing his own life in the process, to defy his government. Like I said, don't fight fire with fire. Killing the agents sent to strip you of your weapons accomplishes nothing for your cause. In theory it would only force the enemy to devote more resources to removing your guns, and removing you as well.

The only real way to fight this would be through the democratic process, though I doubt that would accomplish anything. I've put much thought into what actions could be taken to set this country back on track and restore its greatness, and I haven't been able to come up with many practical resolves. Revolution is useless, our current democratic system is proving itself useless, a military coup is useless; there really is no easy fix, so forgive me for coming up short on hope when facing our current political climate.

How do we get congress to ban lobbying?

Just give up your guns. Losing them might stop kids going to schools and killing loads of others just because they don't like Monday's.

Here in the UK most of us don't have guns and It's by far a much safer place.

Why do you feel you need to own guns to be free, it seems we have freedom without guns, so why can't you?

Guns are for killing, don't forget that. God forbid any of you ever have to use them. It's one thing owning a weapon but when the time comes to use it and you have to kill a man, are you really ready to pull the trigger with no remorse?

Okay"debbie downer" let's run some numbers:

So called "15 man fire teams" against the estimated hardcore 3% of U.S.gun owners who actually would resist.( estimated at **3 million x 15 govt shooters=45 million govt "trigger pullers")

"U.S.military" personnel (wiki) @ 2010 =(Active personnel =1,477,896: includes; officers;cooks mechanics computer techs and administrative; USAF/Army/navy Marines/Coasties.

Northcom claims to be building up to at least 3 brigade combat teams (which are stand alone units with air/ armor/support and and ground units) (Army vets can say how many "trigger pullers" are in a "brigade") hard and fast numbers are noticeably vague online.

**3%'er's: sipseystreetirregulars.blogspot.com...

So no there will not be 15 man squads assaulting every crabby,resisting gun owner in the country. They have a" problem"; One guaranteed across two centuries gift wrapped with love; by the founders .

Yes: if you shoot your b-b-q buddy and neighbor deputy Jim Bob off your porch; They WILL simply send more guys and a "heavy" vehicle or two..

Yes we have too much to lose and we are basically good people who don't want to kill ANYBODY.

So that pushes our tolerance to a higher level before reacting; I can't be sure of many things but I am sure: Should this scenario ever come to play:

"They" will fully exploit: "uncertainty;confusion and chaos. It just makes sense.

Any "martial law" decree WILL emphasize the "temporary nature"of the emergency ( i.e."just until things get under control" Whether that be 30days; 6months 6 years or 6 decades...)

People will not resist because its "only temporary".

I believe it's also a big factor in why FEMA can take control of the the cable T.v. system and broadcast radio bands with a few keystrokes and broadcast Their "message"24/7. If any "resistance" is presented;
You Will NOT hear of it on any media. Only of the states' grand victories against Oceania and Eurasia!
Chocolate rations up 3 grams this month! Double plus good ; I say "Brother"!.


You will not hear : "turn in your weapons." You will surrender them voluntarily to get into food distribution centers.
Common sense: If I came out and openly ( stupidly) announced :" you will board the cattle car in front of you where we will take you out into the desert to be executed". You would have one hell of a fight on your hands. If you are getting on board to travel to "FEMA relief centers". You and your troops will live alot longer and accomplish your task..
In conclusion:
IMHO:
The sheer numbers involved make simple "gun ownership" a factor to be reckoned with; Macho video gamer b.s. claims or not: Any tyrant doesn't "know" how much resistance there will be. and that uncertainty( there's that word again) may stay the hand on the trapdoor lever; from ever "launching" in the first place:

Mission accomplished!( peace and relative security from tyranny) and not a single shot need be fired in Anger between citizens and their "oppressor".

That's why gun ownership is not to be"trivialized"And displays the founders genius;
When "you" take away our guns you don't take away our "baby pacifiers ;egos or testosterone; you merely eliminate our ability to influence the world around us and provide that implied "threat of numbers" When it really matters..

this is all just DOOM PORN nothing i have "possessions" is valuable enough to me personally to feel the way the OP stated. i can walk away from everything, except my children and my freedom.

nothing could get me to acquiesce to "them" taking away my freedom.

people are a lot less attached to their material things than you believe. at least EVERYONE i know. perhaps you are running with a very shallow and materialistic crowed. those folks...well they typically have no integrity and, can be bought with a 29 dollar hamburger. i could care less if they get rounded up.

This thread contains some of the most idiotic and ignorant posts I have ever seen.

I don't own guns so I won't resist
REALLY?

My brain hurt after reading this over and over.

So you just laydown and let whomever walk all over you and your property?

I think these are the people who need to listen to Alex Jones foam over being a red blooded raging human being. I mean one time he made hair stand up on my neck talking like a berserk, but I liked it. You gotta get beastly some times. Quit being a bunch of yellow bellied jellyfish.

Pfffft....


Someone is ill informed. If the US Gov. started to round up guns at try to take them away, well, as the saying goes, they would have to pry them from my cold dead hands. I will die for the right to bare arms, as will many many MANY other Americans. It is this right that keeps the power ultimately in the peoples hands.

"Why you will not resist when the government comes for you or your guns"

I would. Without a second thought.

Exactly. and by having ready access to them we believe we are ,more in control of our own destiny.

If I am armed(and I don't routinely "carry"); you HAVE to deal with me through reason because I can match your violence
no matter how physically strong you are.

For the "nth" time Nobody WANTS to kill anybody; We hope it never comes to that; BUT; We common citizens have the option so you better mind your good manners...


I don't know why you Brits seem to feel the "adult/child transactional need" to comment on 2nd amendment threads. We are of two very different "mind sets".

problem solved. Go buy a spare gun and extra ammo from your friend Kaleel on the southside , bury it under a special rock beside a unique tree in a public place.

By the time they start taking people's guns away. Resisting will be all you have left. I would rather die, free and fighting. Than die in a containment camp or prison.... As the saying goes. " Give me liberty or give me death"

I think the whole idea is too simplistic.

The idea being that armed forces are going to roll down into your cul-de-sac and demand everyone's guns and ammo is so very 'Red Dawn.'

The government will never do that.

One, the soldiers are not going to move on their friends and neighbors.

Two, way too blatant.

No, the real threat is oppression by degree.

Gun taxes, special licenses, and a cultural propaganda machine to ensure guns are seen as extremely dangerous and unnecessary. A tracking system and registration of every gun bought and sold.

You know, the 90's.

I used to think, like all good liberals do, that guns should be outlawed. Then, I grew up and realized that, if that happens, only bad guys who don't care about laws will have guns.
