As a law abiding citizen, I will abide by the law.

I'll give you a hint, it's no longer 'us'.
I don't think the people of this country would let it happen; thus, it probably won't. Still, it is a scary prospect that if the guns were gone, only the BGs and authorities would have them...
That's like who knows who's putting all the votes on the TV screen. Just like the republican run off going on now. Who for sure knowns that Romney is getting all the votes they say he's getting over the others republicans running also. Its just numbers put on the screen for us to see. I think it's decided higher up ladder then us. About like everything else we have no control over.
The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

Guns? No, I'm sorry, I used to have some guns, but they were lost in a Tragic Boating Accident.
Not my circus, not my monkeys.
Thank GOD for the Oathkeeper Organization.
I would love to know the numbers of their membership.
While I agree we must be vigilant to protect our rights, these "Chicken Little, The Sky Is Falling" threads seem a little over the top. Torture to take my guns away? In the last six years, gun rights in my state (Ohio) have increased twofold, if not more.
About six years ago, Ohio passed our CCW law, which has in fact been loosened lately, not tightened up. Doesn't seem like they are clamoring to take anything away. Keep a watchful eye, certainly. Paranoia and hysteria? No.

That's a scary video...
