    What if ? "They" show up at your door for search and seizure

    If this whole gun ban goes bad for gun owners, what will you do if you are given no option but to turn over your guns.

    Hand them over peacefully?
    Hide everything?
    Go down fighting?

    That would probably mean that I was the first one the visit was paid to or they're chopping internet and phone cords on their way out.

    I feel we have 2 options. As the Maine Prepper sez we turn over as many guns as we are willing to part with FOREVER. And they WON'T BE HANDING OUT CONCERT TICKETS OR $$ or nuttin in return for us turning them over. His main theme for going that route is we fight them on ground we can win. Either we have the high ground or use surprise and speed.

    The guns we don't want them to have are somewhere else along with grub/extra clothes and gear/ammo/med kits...basically the tools of the trade of the irregular soldier. WE will be the New American Indians and *THOSE PEOPLE* will be the US Cavalry and there job is to Kill Us All.

    If they are AT YOUR DOOR RIGHT NOW you've lost your ability to hide them somewhere else.

    The other option is go out like SGT YORK...in effect throw ourselves on that grenade to save your buddy if you're not alone and take out as many as you can before you meet your Maker.

    When that time comes each one of us be you man or woman has to make that toughest decision of your life. No one else is authorized to make that call but each of us.

    In my town, more than a third of the adult population have CWP's and it's estimated that more than two-thirds have guns.
    On my road, most of my neighbors are far better armed than we are and all of the ones we know are firm 2A believers.

    I would be surprised if "they" would ever get to our place... unless they started in the middle :)

    I guess I'd have to show them where, in Mobile Bay, my boat sank with all my guns on it. Oh darn! My dog just ate the page with the GPS coordinates on it!

    That might be really tough as I think they will either shutdown the web or cell phones by shutting off cell towers. You best have a radio net in place prior with either CB or HAM or Shortwave radios or combinations of all three.

    They didn't have those things when they fought the first revolution...it might actually work to our advantage in keeping messages secure.

    I would say frankly that this scenario will NOT occur, not this year or the next. I would be inclined to say that this will never happen, but never say never, right. First, any assault rifle that is already owned would most likely be "grandfathered in." Second, look how much resistance is being encountered now: Do you really think anyone is going to be able to pass a law that enables police to go from house to house confiscating weapons? I just don't see that ever happening. Never ever. Not even in a Democratic Congress with a Democratic president. The assault weapons ban in 1994 was the most comprehensive gun "reform" we've ever had in the US, and not only did it last only 10 years, but it never asked any form of authority figure to search from home to home confiscating weapons.

    I'm from Ga.; my family learned the hard way you can't fight the Federal Government. If you fight them they will take your guns by force and truely will "pry them from your dead fingers".
    Give them what they ask for so they don't search and find the ones they don't know about ...I don't have any but some might have 1 or 2 that were bought before they instituted "universal background "registration", I mean checks.

    Hide everything. Lie about everything. After they leave, break out the hard wear and bunker up; Things will get ugly.

    My (distant) cousin Alvin never threw himself on a grenade! Sgt. York's "option" was to take out 32 German machine guns, kill 28 enemy soldiers and capture 132 more. I was a young boy when he "went out" from a brain hemorrhage 46 years later, at the age of 76.

    I have sold all my guns in anticipation of a ban, and wanted to get what their worth before they become contraban.
