Gun control and confiscation have been hot topics for debate recently in America following the tragedy of Sandy Hook. With news headlines like this:
White House Threatens Executive Order On
one must consider the possibility that confiscation could become a reality.
The reason I am writing this thread now is to discuss a topic that I have found little information circulating. What if the US Government DOES pass
draconian gun laws and confiscating guns is part of the law? What if President Obama DOES use an executive order to confiscate some or all
citizens guns. Or alternatively, what if Diane Feinstein's new assault rifle bill does pass...and they want all legal gun owners to register their
guns via fingerprints, photos, etc and then they get to decide if you keep your guns or not...? What do you think will happen?
Obviously, there is a lot of talk about a new civil war. I'm not trying to discuss that in this thread. What if they don't decide to use the SWAT
team tactic of kicking in doors and forcibly confiscating your weapons, but instead use a "soft kill" technique? As in what if they decide you will
be charged $1000 for every day you don't turn in your gun and if you don't pay they will garnish your wages to $0. Or perhaps they will call your
employer and tell them you are a threat to the nation and that they need to fire you or else they are an accomplice to a terrorist. Or perhaps they
decide they will use the door kicking method and start sending SWAT teams to people's houses and forcibly taking firearms. They know when you go to
work, so perhaps they decide to confiscate while you are away from home to make sure it is an easy process. You say "Well then I'll just put them
in my car and take them to work with me in my trunk". They know where you work, remember? They show up and forcibly take them. What are your
options? To bury them? Not a great plan. And some of us don't have anywhere to do that.
I know that this kind of thinking is all very theoretical, but my point is that a lot of these things are not being discussed or maybe even thought
of. Personally, I am a gun owner and I own 3 firearms (rifle, shotgun, pistol). I have no intentions of relinquishing my weapon and I would rather
die than sit back and watch the Constitution be stepped on and my fellow Americans be treated as slaves (and become slaves following confiscation).
My question is, does anyone have answers to how we prepare for these possibilities? The possibility that they will try to financially ruin us and
turn us into outcasts in our own community to force us to give up our guns. I ask this in a humble manner, because I think there are others out there
who may have some ideas and answers on how to protect ourselves, our freedoms, and our communities from this type of tyranny, If I know anything, I
know that it will be reliance on each other that will get us through that kind of scenario.
PS: If you hate guns and all you have to say is that you want them to be taken, then don't bother. This thread is not discussing that.
