His ability to defend himself alone is irrelevant.
If --and I really mean IF-- our government legislates away our right to self defense to the point that they begin confiscation, it will be the stand
that he makes against tyranny, along with those few additional "individuals" that follow suit, that will be the catalyst for an organized revolt
against said tyranny. If (again if) it comes to that, the tyrants will realize their mistake; the very same one the British made when they attempted
to harshly enforce their will upon their "subjects." That is, a free people, when truly forced to decide between liberty and tyranny, at risk of
life and limb, they will take that risk, because what's at stake at that point is far more grave than just death. The future of this country and its
inhabitants are worth the risk.
Yes, times are different than they were during the American revolution. They've got drones and FLIR and GPS and all sorts of nifty technology. And
also, if they've come to the point of confiscation then they've already succeeded with registration. Therefore, for the most part, they will know
who has the guns, how many, and where they live. But who is going to come for all of them? The FBI? I scoff at the notion that hundreds of armed
agents can exert their will against thousands upon thousands of defiant gun owners, even if done incrementally.
Who else then, the National Guard? Those are men and women with families and children who VOLUNTEER on occasion to help in times of domestic crisis.
They will not disarm their friends and neighbors.
The local police? Nope. Say what you will about the police, but they, for the most part, serve and protect. They won't stand for forced disarmament
in their communities by a government that has shown its hand in its desire to rob the people of their ability to fight back.
Truly the only way the tyrants could disarm us is if they call upon the full might of the US military to do their bidding, and that is PRECISELY where
the grandest of all the stupid mistakes will be made. Our armed forces would never act against their countrymen. They would join the revolution and
end it far swifter than it started, way, way back in 1994, further back than most people care to remember.
They want to legislate us back to bolt-action rifles, because you can't fight a revolution today with "muskets." Let's stop talking confiscation
and revolution and start reading our local and state government's websites. Learn about the bills they try to pass nearly every day to infringe upon
ALL of our rights, not just those protected under the Second Amendment, and work to put a stop to them. Write our councilmen/congressmen/senators and
make it clear that we will retaliate with our votes if they betray your liberty, and then ACTUALLY DO IT. Vote against them, and get others to do so
This revolution will be fought in court, not in the streets. Count on it. And they can enslave us without disarming us. Count on THAT. They've
thought this through and they know they can't take our guns. They'll take all of your money, and then your gun doesn't mean squat. Confiscation of
wealth is the path to our ruin. When the majority of the population, penned up in the farmless asphault ruin we call our cities have no way to feed
themselves or their children, they'll smile and take what they're given by their masters, and say thank-you for it.
I'd go into my argument about term-limiting in all segments of government, but I've taken up enough space for now.
