"...while looters and rapists and thugs ran rampant and honest citizens were left to their own devices to protect themselves, their families and their neighbors."
Someone please explain to me how this is different from any normal day.

I hate to sound extreme but I'm afraid that's the way it's going to read but,...

At that point all the badges and uniforms in the world would mean nothing more to me than the red or blue 'Colors' worn by bangers on the street. They are following an unlawful order and denying me EXACTILY what the 2nd admendment was written for.

Nobody Can Answer Fully Until It HAPPENS
I think I'd have to be convinced it was MAD MAX or the ROAD WARRIOR time before I'd go that route. Look at New Orleans. Yes it was a terrible situation, but ORDER did return and the infrastructure was restored. National action came about as a result of the gun grabs. Also action at the state level where it's far more important.

Because you might do okay in the short run, but your family would have to do without you for the rest of their lives afterward.
PLUS you'd be an example for the antigun crowd to hold up for even tougher laws! You'd be the Brady's Poster Boy of the Millennium! Those durn NRA nuts have finally gone off the deep end...yada yada yada....

Vitter Amendment means nothing
As far as I'm concerned, the amendment is a farce. The Vitter Amendment does not make it unlawful for them to seize firearms or restrict possession - it only make it unlawful for them to use federal funds to do it. Well, they can get the federal funds to do other stuff & free up the state & local funds to do as they please, and still not technically break the law.

And what can be de-funded can also be re-funded at a later date.
There's an old saying: Keep your enemies close, and your "friends" closer.
Requiring a license makes it illegal to do something that was lawful before the license was required.
