But after watching the video, I changed my mind.
I think what he's trying to say is not that every gun owner is crazy....but rather there are quite a few crazies who own guns.
Whether you agree with a mild form of gun control(and yes, everything proposed so far is rather mild, even if I'm opposed to it) or not, he's probably right about what he said.edit on 18-1-2013 by Ghost375 because: (no reason given)
"The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the "high powers" delegated directly to the citizen, and `is excepted out of the general powers of government.' A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power." [Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394, at 401-402 (1859)]
And you think a good chunk of the places that manufacture and or sell ammo, would be on the government's side in a civil war scenario? I highly doubt it.
Most of all, get ready for the fact that most Americans won't care.

I've been asking this question: How many Americans is Obama willing to murder in an attempt to disarm the population? I think as soon as we know that answer, we'll know how far they're willing to take this.
I think the answer is – as many as it takes.
The question I’ve been asking is “How many Americans is Obama going to have to kill before the rest of the country realizes what WE already know?”
How much more freedom will be stripped before everyone gets a clue? And will it be too late to do anything?
The federal government does not have the man power to even control 50 states worth of private industry.
It all hinges on compliance. If they tried to seize anything in Texas for example, how many troops would they need to send to realistically do so? Then add to that 2 or 3 more states that choose not to comply?
You mean to tell me they have enough troops to fill 50 states AND enforce anything internationally?
Now who is being delusional Mr.Fed fanboy.

So basically, you need your guns to stop people from taking your guns?

The federal government would monitor all roads for suspicious activity and shut off water and electricity to any suspected "terrorist" hide out areas. Anyone caught collaborating or helping the "terrorists" would be charged with treason and executed. This would fear most people into submission.

Meh. A drone and a tank will take care of that idiocy.
