are you being silly on purpose ?
because keeping your gun to feed your family just doesnt make sense, unless you intend to do something illegal
the use of guns has put more food on tables than any government ever has.
why would you think using a gun to provide food would be illegal?

Imagine an army parading through the streets of a city and guns being aimed from just half of the windows from the first five stories of the buildings. No army could defeat an armed population unless they did literally destroy every population center (city) with wmds. As has been stated that would render the land useless most likely and would defeat the purpose.
Now imagine where most people in the states live. There are no population centers to target. So it would become guerrilla warfare unless the oppressors are willing to destroy every acre of the country with wmds. Bottom line is, anyone who attempts to come to an Americans house and relinquish them of their weapons can expect to meet resistance. I really don't understand how the Aussies let it happen to them.
I would respectfully ask any such oppressor to vacate my property or else be removed forcibly dead or alive. Maybe I'm old fashioned in believing that the law (constitution) means something and I'm sure that alot of people (cowards) will cave, but a good many of us will fight tooth and nail win or lose. I will die fighting in any scenario, not cowering and begging for mercy because I was stupid enough to give up my only means of defending myself.
Hows that for a non military warrior gene?edit on 18-12-2012 by begoodbees because: (no reason given)
This is naive nonsense. An opposing enemy would rain down hell before the land invasion began. They would bomb them into to the stoneage. Not even your precious gun couldn't save you.

Your staged mind control shootings are not going to do it. Even if you manage to get some bogus unconstitutional law passed it won't matter the vast majority will not comply!
Mind control .. Odd there have been mass murders before electricity . were they using some kinda jedi mind tricks before to get people to have mental disorders ?
As for the nwo they have other countries with resources they can still take over ... secondly if they control governments and military .. they have rockets and lazer and space weaponry drones . your little guns are like someone trying to pick a fight with you and your gun with a twig ..edit on 15/12/12 by freedomSlave because: (no reason given)
Lot of good it ill do them Why are they having such a hard time rooting out a few thousand insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan? Americans will be impossible to defeat on their own soil!
Something I posted on another thread:
1. No modern army has ever defeated an indigenous population on thier own land. Think Vietnam, Afghanistan, Chechenya, Iraq, and Afghanistan again
2. If your premise were true only 2% of people who join the military would cut it in combat since they are taken from the overall population.
3. You assume that the two percent of the people who supposedly have the lets call it "warrior gene" all join the military.
4.History is repleat with so called peasants, farmers, rabble, or common people, rising up when circumstances force them and defeating supposedly superior armies and warriors. The American revolution perhaps being the most well known.
5. The most powerful and technologically advanced army in the world hasn't been able to route out a few thousand insurgents with AK's and RPG's in Iraq and Afghanistan (see number 1 again)
6. No country on earth has the traditions of liberty and freedom ingrained in thier mindset like America.
7. Only 3 percent actually fought the American revolution.
8. If only 1% of 100,000,000 gun owners fight (it will likely be more) that is 1 million freedom loving Americans. More then all the available combat troops we have in the entire military.
9. The most well armed well trained most resourceful guerilla army in history of the world is in America. This won't be peasants in robes with AK's. Many of them veterans with the same or better training as those whom they would be fighting. And full machine shops in thier garages to make just about anything. Guerilla tactics are hit and run never going toe to toe with a superior foe. Lots of folks successfully track stalk and hunt deer and elk every year I am sure that can easily be adapted to other things.
10. A certain percentage of the military will side with patriots and bring some of thier toys with them.
11. No army foreign or domestic could control the entire land mass of America. It is logistically impossible and they would be picked off from every rock, tree, door, and window. As the Japanese said of us when asked why they never invaded the mainland; There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
12. would be cutting off thier own supply lines (the American people) and could maybe control a few cities at best but doubtful they could sustain it for very long.
The PTB know they could never win a fight with the American people that is why they don't want one. And why should they? They are doing just fine robbing us of all our wealth via subterfuge. They want productive slaves on the plantation not a revolt!.
