I have read throughout this thread, and on other threads besides, that any armed takeover of the United States would be extremely difficult if not
impossible because of the fact that a large portion of the citizenry own firearms. I am afraid that I must disagree with this assumption. I grew up in
the bush here in Australia and firearms have always been a way of life for myself and my family. It has been my experience that simply owning a
firearm means very little when it comes to your proficiency in actually using one. I have seen a lot of people declare that, when the NWO makes its
move, they will grab whatever guns they can and resist the occupation of their lands.
That's great, but unless you actually know how to use a gun, you are going to be killed or captured extremely quickly. If this hypothetical situation
were to ever actually happen, you can be assured that you would be facing off against professional soldiers. These are people who probably have many
years of training and experience in using firearms and other weapons. If it comes down to a fire-fight between you and your buddies and a group of
trained soldiers, I don't think much of your chances. Even if you managed to hold your own and stand your ground, what will you do when they send a
tank to displace you?
My point here is that a lot of people seem to be simply assuming that because there are a lot of guns lying around, everybody must know how to use
them with some degree of skill. But think to yourself - how many people do you know who would be capable of wielding a gun with a level of proficiency
approaching that of a professional soldier? Be honest with yourself. Putting a gun into the hands of somebody who has not had sufficient experience
with them is dangerous. Subsequently asking that person to use that gun to kill another human being will probably result in failure, despite patriotic
cries of "We'll defend our land to the last person!" Simply put, although you may have a lot of guns and may even be highly experienced with them
yourself, most people are unfamiliar with guns and could not be relied upon to use one to kill somebody in the event the NWO attempted to overthrow
and enslave America.
Let's face it - if it comes to the point where your only option is to fight or die, you are probably going to die. You may take a couple with you,
but you will still be dead. As I said, all the handguns and rifles and shotguns and automatic weapons in the world are not going to help you against a
tank, or against mortars, or artillery, or airstrikes.
So, rather than focusing on obtaining guns to fight back in a heroic, patriotic and ultimately very fatal last stand, it would be wiser to concentrate
on learning elements of escape, hiding and survival skills. The first thing I would do is run away. There may be more people than elites, but the
elites have the guys who know how to use the guns and have other weapons against which you are defenceless.
Simply put, if you try and fight, you will very likely die. Please do not assume that America is safe simply because there happen to be a lot of guns.
It means nothing if people are unfamiliar with them or are unwilling to use them against other people. There has never been a country which has not
been beaten in direct warfare, and this includes the United States. An armed citizenry is no real defence against a fully equipped modern army, which
I assume the NWO would be using.
