Some will uphold their oath, but others will not. Relying on that oath to protect us is a bit naive....People will be people no matter what...What currently keeps the government in check is the military truly believing in their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. Without the support of the military the government can not seize the citizen's firearms.
If the military decides to support the government in taking our firearms, than we loose. If you think the few that would acutally actively resist could stand up against the might of the US military you are fooling yourself.Some will uphold their oath, but others will not.

First, you have totally missed the point of my post. Second, if they really wanted our guns and had the means to do so, I think they would have done it already, you fail to realize the number of gun owners in this country. There is a reason that they are trying to nickel and dime us...If the military decides to support the government in taking our firearms, than we loose.

Women's Rights in the United States in the 1700s - WriteWorkIf you've purchased a weapon from an FFL, then the NSA already knows what you've got. If you've purchased ammo over the internet, they know what you've got.
And there are silly people on Defensive Carry who think that we have more freedoms today than during the 1770's.
There are also silly people on Defensive Carry who believe that there is nothing wrong with NSA or government intrusion into our lives.
I'll say it straight up: They are fakes and phonies when it comes to upholding freedom and liberty.
Religion in Colonial America: Trends, Regulations, and Beliefs | Give Bigotry No Sanction - Exploring Religious Freedom - Facing History and OurselvesIn the mid to late 1700's, the women of the United States of America had practically no rights. When they were married, the men represented the family, and the woman could not do anything without consulting the men.
Completing the American RevolutionMost attempted to enforce strict religious observance. Laws mandated that everyone attend a house of worship and pay taxes that funded the salaries of ministers. Eight of the thirteen British colonies had official, or “established,” churches, and in those colonies dissenters who sought to practice or proselytize a different version of Christianity or a non-Christian faith were sometimes persecuted.
In the various colonies the wealthy merchant class introduced property qualifications for voting in order to disenfranchise the poor and protect their own privileges:
This is how it will come to be within the next 30 years or sooner if our form of government and "America" even lasts that long. Sure they will never get all of your guns but if you use them is self defense you will be locked up for 30 years. At some point guns may only be good for a "Revolution" it has happened before.Confiscation is nothing new. One only has to look as far as England or Australia to see how it is done.
One of the things that they do is make it illegal to defend ones self with deadly force. They'll spend more time and money prosecuting someone that defended themselves than they would on the person that caused it. Its out of balance and out of control.
Tyrants don't care about your ability to defend yourselves or you loved ones, they just care about you not shooting their sorry asses for getting stupid.
