    As to the OP: I would give up my firearms in accordance with the law. How they would know who had what though would make any such law about as useless as the paper it was written on.
    Then they need to ask those guys what happened to the guns I gave Jimmy, lol.

    Now I would have to think twice if I was one of the ones coming to gets the guns that were not turned in..I think my odds would be better with 4 of 6 loaded in a revolver and playing Russian roulette..

    I think there would be a sudden surge in boating accidents. of course here in MN there is alot of ice fishing and what happened was: I was trying to make a hole in the ice, the 9mm wouldn't do it, the .22 wouldn't do it, but the hunting rifle did and darn it all, they all fell down the hole. I couldn't tell you what lake, they all look the same this time of year

    If you look at the Deer hunting season alone, there are almost 700,000 hunters in my state alone...The UN would have to help, the zombie apocalypse would begin. They would be talking about the 2nd revolution in 200 years.

    If it were to ever get to that point, I'd like to believe I'd do EVERYTHING possible to defend my family from the living hell that was coming along with it. That would not include quietly surrendering however.

    Moot point. Like many here, I swore to defend the Constitution of the United States...which includes the RKBA. If someone who claims to be MY "Government" either Fed or State tried to take my guns away, I would not recognize tgheir authority.

    Agreed, this is likely the bigger problem.

    Goawayfarm is right too. I think the majority of people would turn in their firearms to comply with the law. Once they are illegal, you couldn't carry, defend, or practice with any illegally kept firearm. As soon as you use it, you go to jail. It would indeed be a tragic day in the US if 2A was lost.
    There's something happening here
    What it is ain't exactly clear
    There's a man with a gun over there
    Telling me I got to beware

    I think this would be just about impossible to implement. I know many of us on this forum, including myself, have taken an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. If foreign units were brought in it would turn into open warfare quickly these country boys know the land. We may not have the heavy weapons but we can take it from them after they are dead. This is something that I have thought of and I have prepared for such.

    I'd let them know I still have them, and they all work just fine.

    The interesting piece would be the folks in uniform that would have to enforce this act against our citizens. Again, I would not want that job.

    That is the weak link in the whole scenario. I do not know one cop (and I happen to know a lot very well) who would do this, and I can't imagine any of the military guys I served with back then, or the ones I know now doing it either.
