    This is true enough, but there are those who can and do; good thing is, that these people are typically very patriotic.

    gun confiscation...esp in the red(er) states will be a costly enterprise in terms of lives and resources. taking guns from city dwellers will not be as hard as taking them from the "hay seed hicks".

    I agree, but it is very different when going after drug dealers, or other people for crimes when there is a warrant in hand and laws have clearly been broken vs. simply going door to door to get folks guns. That is where I think line would or should be drawn by those who would be called to to this.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I think we are saying the same thing, just in different ways. I dont know anyone in LE that would do it, and I cant imagine anyone I served with in the military doing it. I think if they wanted to snuff out gun ownership, there are smarter and easier ways to do it than going door to door.

    Unfortunately, I do. I only know a few like this, and I'm pretty sure they're a minority, but they do exist.

    As for "who", specifically, I'd put money down it would come down on the shoulders of cops with National Guard help. Nobody else has legitimate authority, and I don't think even orders to do so would get the Air Force, Army, Marines, or Navy to do it (if anything, it might promote desertion). It would fall to sworn law enforcement officers.

    It's easy to say "i'd be remembered a patriot... " but would you? The way the media does their perverse dance you'd wind up just being another 11:00 special about a crazy man killed by police after an X-hour standoff...

    Food for thought...
    We are only as vulnerable as we are naive.

    good point. History (books) is written by the media now. and we know where they stand in the scheme of things...if anything your "patriotism" is a ratings grabber for them.

    No, I don't think I would. I would take the consequences if need be but chances are I'd be long gone with my possessions before they came a - knockin. I read somewhere that those ppl who gave up their guns in Katrina never got them back.

    If they did manage to get all the way out to my neck of the woods, I sure wouldn't want any of the local law enforcement folks to wrench their backs trying to carry a couple of Browning 1919A4s or M2HBs, so I'd have to decline, out of concern for their health.

    yeah I'd definitely have to say that they must have floated away with the flood waters. Maybe show where they "used" to be kept if that will appease them.
