I'm bored of arguing this. Go and rebel, get martial law declared, freedom stripped further and Americans slaughtered. Anyone that would do this is just stepping into their mouse trap...but again, logic escapes most of the right wing fringe.*shrugs*
hmmmm, didn't they try that once before ??

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.
They wouldn't have a choice even if they didn't want to be. The federal government can take over any private industry in the name of national security.

I see some people here do not understand the US military will not be coming for the guns. It goes against the oath each and every one of them took and there are laws in place that state that the US military will not be used against its own populace. If they could be deployed in such a fashion they would have had them on the US Mexico border a long time ago. Soldiers are not like unmanned drones they are thinking beings that are not going to be dropping bombs on their own families. The National Guard can be deployed by order of the state and they are 90% civilian and are less likely to be fighting Grandpa. Those who think the military are going to be fighting their neighbors are being idiotic. Most of those in the military are gun owners themselves so the idea that they would personally side with the Feds on gun control is just plain stupid.
The only groups the Feds have under their disposal are DHS, ATF, and the FBI and even they have families. So get your heads out of your arse'es and take a look around because you sure don’t see things clearly at the moment. It wasn’t that long ago that I was in the military and yes we talked about these exact scenarios to where we decided that once we were issued such orders we would let them arm us then kindly turn on those that issued such orders.

UN troops will be used. If Obama takes this as far as I believe he will then you can expect some blue helmets within your borders.

I live in Australia and i must say we dont have mass shootings in schools like America does. I remember when gun control came in and my dad having to hand his over. He was very annoyed at the time. We can still own a gun but you have to be registered. I think taking guns away for the majority would help allot with mass shootings. Guns can do so much damage in such a short amount of time. i agree not all are crazy but maybe making guns just that little harder to buy may help. I cant remember the last time i heard of a mass shooting in our country??

so, the government is going to trap a bunch of families and children in a building, kill several officers/agents who know too much about other corrupt cases and then set the place on fire burning everyone alive?
