Too many toys to list...wife might see it. 😁
I'd prefer it never comes to this. It's all ugly.

Yeah, what "UN" country is going to try to take our arms? The Brits? They're the only ones with any sort of real army and they tried twice before wising up.

You have to be kidding yourself if you think that the armed forces or LEO won't violate our constitutional rights. They do it everyday.
When it comes down to feeding their families ie. their security, they won't be thinking much about your rights on paper.
I don't carry a gun to look for or start a fight. I carry one to finish a fight I never wanted to be in.

That is a very good read.
My question - this all happens after the Gov declairs us all Felons if we do not surrender our Arms. Well at that point, what would you have to lose?
This has also been posted on my NY firearm forum.
Here are my two replies.
"Interesting. What about the confiscations that took place after Katrina? He does not address that. "

and my final reply.
"That's the point kinda. I didn't see armed national guards men and women standing up to the Federal and local authorities that were confiscating weapons from people's homes. Did you? Oh wait according to someone interviewed the coast guard and the national guard were the ones assisting them.....
Yes none of us were there. So WE will never know. But the people that were interviewed were present I believe. So yes it comes down to who do you believe. And here WE are......
Im not so sure if the military forces still stationed in the United States would stand up for citizens or not, I really don't know. I support our troops 100%. And thank all who have served and are currently serving. But if the National Guard stood by, even joined in. I'm quite concerned........ "

Don't ever think that our servicemen and women or LEOs wouldn't carry out orders to confiscate guns and to take action, up to firing on citizens, that don't comply. Look what happened in Nazi Germany. Do you think the Holocaust was carried out by a group of "evil men?" Well, by definition I guess they were, but these were sons, fathers, husbands, brothers, neighbors, friends, and fellow countrymen of the people they murdered. There is overwhelming evidence of human's nature to comply with and obey authority. Our servicemen and women are trained to follow orders.
I say this meaning no disrespect to our military personnel. I hope I am completely wrong on this, and I know that there would be a large number that would refuse such action. But history has taught us over and over that humans are capable of horrendous things when they believe they have no other choice. Suffice to say that if things came to that it would be very ugly.
I made that very point when I attended The Holocaust Museum in DC and was discussing why the police and military carried out the orders of Hitler.
