Wait, a civil war between who? The anti-gun people don't usually have guns, so who are the pro-gunners going to shoot - unarmed people?? Do you mean a
war between the government and the gun nuts? Well, I hate to tell ya, but the government's military will win that one pretty quickly, as they have
stuff a lot more powerful than guns at their disposal.
I'm still trying to figure out exactly what you are trying to say here.
People with your view just don't understand how it will work.
I guess this is how you see it going down....
The government lines up on one side with their weapons and
Patriotic Americans (or armed domestic terrorists depending on your view) line up on the other with their weapons and just shoot it out like we did
with the Redcoats...
That's not how it will happen. Will the military shoot every person they come across? If not how will they know who is a civilian and who is a
civilian combatant? We will all look the same, till it's too late.
How come the mighty US military has such a problem with "terrorists" in other countries who run around in sandals, live in mud huts, and carry a 50
year old rifle?
With your logic all these wars over sea's should have been over in hours and we should have wiped the floor with them.......yet they drag on.
You try to go into a town or neighborhood occupied with locals and try to root them out isn't so easy.
Ask any Vietnam vet, Desert storm vet, Iraqi freedom vet or research the trouble the British troops had against the American Colonists.
After reading all the posts the narrow mindedness of the typical anti-firearm person really becomes apparent.
Your side believes there is only one side to any argument, that nobody has a different lifestyle, hobbies or environment they live in where owning
firearms may not only be enjoyed but mandatory.
Same way enviro-bunny huggers think everybody should drive a Hybrid Prius and if you drive a big old 4x4 truck that your compensating for something.
They don't realize that outside Berkley, CA. or Seattle that some people actually do work that don't require a computer. Some of us REQUIRE a big gas
guzzling vehicle because thats what will pull what we need to haul.....And we Require a gun because unlike inside one of your Starbucks there are
actually critters out here that will eat your pasty white behind.
