I seriously doubt a civil war is around the corner. I can not say it is impossible, but I do doubt the fact that it would happen so soon after an
executive order were placed.
You would have to keep in mind, there are far more civilians than there are DHS agents. Not to mention, there isn't a complete list of all the
firearms, their whereabouts and their owners in government possession. Yes, in some states their may be a small catalog of owners and firearms, but
this is an enormous undertaking that would take years to act out. Not to mention, I doubt it would be a raid first ask questions later scenario. The
government loves it's paper work, it does make them money after all.
I have to say, I sincerely doubt any jets or serious hardware are going to walk off any old military base. Definitely no warships escaping a base even
with a large group of mutineers. There will still be large numbers of military faithful to the government, that's what they are trained to be and
that's what they will be. Those that defect will likely be taken as they do so. Yes, small groups could make off with smaller equipment, but no
warship is getting out of the harbor under defector control. The government would sink it the moment they thought it was out of their hands. Keep in
mind, much of the US fleet that could be manned by a small group of mutineers is not going to stand against larger fleet vessels, or US aircraft.
Sure, I'll give you that maybe, "Maybe" a defector could take a jet, but what is he going to do with it? If he flies it, it will get shot down by
the many that are still under government control. Once he lands it, it needs fuel, ammo, maintenance. Not like you can just walk back on base after
and load up what you need for that jet. It would be located and destroyed in hours.
A resistance is not going to be armed with serious US military hardware. Given years of fighting, and the complete collapse of the government some
tanks and other armored vehicles I could understand. There is a large abundance hanging around various parts of the US. As far as Aircraft, I
seriously doubt it. Naval vessels will turn into what's left of the government office, and even if they were captured, given this is a US Civil war,
you can't exactly bring a frigate into central US. Why waste the time, man power and valuable resources after the collapse to capture something
outside of the lands you're fighting for.
IF, (I say this cautiously,) a civil war broke out in the US you will see small groups of resistance fighters using guerrilla tactics against a
superior fighting force, exactly as we see in the middle east. Attempting to over throw the military in an effort to secure the nation on their terms
is absolutely foolish. They are vastly superior in equipment and training when compared to the average resistance fighter.
Food, would ultimately become an issue, and I can't say the government would give two #s what they destroy in rooting out the resistance. Ultimately
the blame will be laid on the Terrorists(resistance). We saw this in the most recent of Gaza attacks. The government will put out warnings, do not
associate with terrorist, be around terrorists, blah blah blah.
Resistance fighter in a hospital, they will strike it, school they will strike it, extremely valuable wheat field they will strike it. They really
don't care, they have stocks for those they deem important. Having the general public and the resistance suffer, puts pressure on the resistance as
long as the government can keep the focus on them. Not to mention, if the government labels the destruction of a crop as an attempt by the resistance
to damage the masses, the people trying to stay out of it will look poorly towards said resistance. It's incredibly hard to win a civil war with out
the support of the nation.
The issue hasn't come into play. Radical answers seem to be, being demanded and the msm is trying to push the fear along, but you still have a vote.
If you disagree with the issues of gun control, make your voice heard. If peaceful means can not be had, then start to worry about things like this.
Jumping to Gun control = civil war, is exactly the reason they are doing this sort of thing. It's like putting matches on the table, then telling a
kid not to touch them. He's gonna want to touch them, he will think about. Some kids might touch em, some might not. Others still will burn the damn
