But sir, I gave up guns the same time I gave up meat, sex and alcohol.
Nearly half of Americans households receive some sort of aid from the government. Would they give that up by rebelling from those giving it to them? Or, would they trade in their guns for the comfort of that aid?

Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
You are right, Australia did not have protection of arms built into their constitution, but their example shows how politicians will not let any crisis go to waste in exploiting death and suffering to promote a political agenda. Their federal government had no power at all to regulate firearms until 1996 after a mass shooting that initiated a new push for gun control.
Firearms represent and bestow power. Those who want more power will continue to try to take yours away. Bottom line. They will not let any document keep them from this goal. It would be best if we just didn't elect these people, but sadly a large number of voters are uninformed or ignorant. Therefore, it is not unreasonable to discuss the possibility of the government moving towards a ban of firearms. Besides, most of us are on here because we think about the "what if" sittuations. This is a very big "if" but justified by the potential impact it would bring.

"Guns, officers? Why, I divested myself of such hateful tools years ago! No, I do not recall to whom they were sold, but I assure you I used the funds to support anti-gun legislation!"
Never give up, never surrender, never back down. Like my grandfather always said: fight for what you think is right or you have already lost.

Think of it this way...do you really think officers would go door to door? Especially to there loved ones houses to claim guns? Do you think the National Guard would forsake its state and go door to door demanding your guns? Not saying it will ever happen but I highly doubt it will happen, I assure you 99% of them military you do nothing and 99% of leo would do nothing. Then you get the 1% who are tools to the gov... Lol like they would succeed.
