    An oft asked question on the gun boards...

    "Do you think American LEO will participate in a firearms confiscation"?

    Well did you see the photos of Der Schwarzer Führer at the Minnesota "speech" with all his Sturmtruppen lined up behind him???

    I somehow found it rather appropriate that so many were wearing their brown shirts.

    They will find some to help with confiscations, should they ever take place. But I think the vast majority not only would not participate, but would oppose such action.

    I don't believe there will be a gun confiscation. There may very well be a gun ban with mandatory turn-ins, but after that, they will be apprehending domestic terrorists and criminals. When they come knocking, they won't be knocking, and resistance will be a very bad idea.

    I'm curious, how is a "gun ban with mandatory turn-ins" different than confiscation? They are the exact same thing.

    to me, confiscation is going to homes and taking the weapons. OMO

    A turn-in is when you drive to the WalMart parking lot as instructed and hand over your firearms. A confiscation is when they come to the house because you didn't show up at the Walmart Parking lot.

    Isn't that what happens after you refuse to turn in your guns? It's just the next step. IF they require you to turn them in, that's no different than them coming to your home and saying, give us all your illegal guns. They ask you to do it of your own will, or they order you to do it with the threats of prosecution or force. It's all the same thing. I believe each person that owns a gun/guns will have to decide whether they will comply with the mandatory turn-ins/involuntary confiscation or not, and at which threat level. I sincerely hope I'm wrong.

    Some will. Particularly in large, liberal cities. Most won't.

    They won't be coming for your guns, it'll be because you are gun owner and are coming for you.
    If you're going to carry one weapon, might as well carry two, because as the saying goes, "Two is one, and one is none."

    We aren't in disagreement here, merely expressing ourselves differently. I hope we are wrong, too.

    I dont think it will ever happen but. If national registration and then confiscation were attempted I dont think they will have time to worry about going door to door. New Yorks population is at almost every meeting with officals at town halls and seminars on the new laws there flat out telling officials to their face that they will not comply.
    It would be the end of things as we know them right now but confiscation will and I hope to never see it not be met with individuals waiting at home to be branded like sheep.
    There will be trust me, a few gifted leaders as there was in our first revolution that will organize and band patriots together into gorilla warfare units throughout the country.
    I dont want it, hope it never happens. But if it should, either the federal government will have to be willing to kill thousands of citizens or more on our own soil. I dont believe our military would allow that to go on for very long based on constitutionally illegal law before turning on the handful in power and putting an end to it.
    Resistance would be a bad idea yes. But not as bad an idea as being a member a heavily outnumbered force trying to enforce confiscation. America isnt Russia, or Germany. No President is looked on as the great Father of the country. And enough of our people still believe in the American dream to not simply lay down and be ruled by a dictator. JMO
