If the federal government decides to disarm the public, and when the increasingly-militarized rolls down your street after a not-so-subtle request that you kindly turn over your firearms and ammunition “for the common good,” it will be nothing less than suicide by cop to do anything other than what you are told.
You are not going to take on a platoon of Marines with state-of-the-art automatic weapons and the best body armor you cannot buy protected by armed personnel carriers and attack helicopters unless you choose to die that day — for nothing. You will either be in the country or out, and if you are in, you will stay in and you will comply.

It would be if the other side felt the same way.
If there wasnt anybody out there concerned about my weapons then I wouldnt be concerned about somebody out there trying to take my weapons.
There are far more important things. That goes for both sides.edit on 17-8-2012 by thisguyrighthere because: (no reason given)

Man I just don't get it, some of you guys are so obsessed with weapons. Its like its been forgotten that there are many more important things in life.
To be honest I think the paranoia about evil people coming to take guns away is just bunk and scaremongering.
I guess some people have too much time on their hands....
You don't buy a gun without dreaming about shooting somebody. Those who say "you'll pry my gun from my cold dead fingers" are suicidal.

What I'm really afraid of, and trying to figure out how to defeat/disappear from, is FLIR systems. In the event that it's a bug-out situation, I have a good place to go with supplies that is remote, but staying invisible to FLIR systems is what I'm trying to work out now.
And yes, as far as the OP, if they come for you and you haven't gotten the hell out of Dodge... you will not be able to resist and stay alive.
