If a world war breaks out FEMA camps will be used to house and control everyone on American soil whose ethnic background is that of the enemy and therefore a potential threat. This is exactly what happened in the previous world war and would happen again in a decalared global war.

fema campz would never hold the population of the united states either; we are some 311 million something. (some of whom own firearms)
Washington, DC --(AmmoLand.com)- Data released by the FBI’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) for the year reported 14,033,824 NICS Checks for the year of 2009, a 10 percent increase in gun purchases from the 12,709,023 reported in 2008.
So far that is roughly 14,000,000+ guns bought last year!
The total is probably more as many NICS background checks cover the purchase of more than one gun at a time by individuals.
To put it in perspective that is more guns than the combined active armies of the top 21 countries in the world.

I think FEMA camps are built as a contingency to hold military, that decide they have had enough and no longer will fight in large groups. Make an example of a few hundred of them, and the rest will fall back into line pretty quick. What do you think?
