Our government is not going to just take your guns away, they do it SLOWLY with little laws congrass and the senate make. No one will freak out too much, back in the 90's the ASSAULT WEAPONS ban laws restricted what you could buy.
After this nut case in the theater in Aurora, you can rest asure the anti gun dem nazi's will have plenty of ammo to rile up the general public to go along with them, and new gun ban are comming.
millions of criminals and gangs carry guns in Chicago, but do you see people riled up because they are not allowed to carry a weapon to defend themselves and carry a handgun in the state of IL?
the military WILL do what they are told, the troops will not question their superiors, or they will be punished. the police will do what the fed government TELLS them or the FED Government will threaten to cut off all funds to that state or town, and then the Governer and mayors will do what they are told, and tell the cheif of police to FIRE any cop who does not follow orders.
I'm not one to live in panic and be nervous all the time. I just know it can happen, and chose not to stick my head in the sand and say "it can't happen"
I don't have an AR (looking at getting one now after the shooting that will cause us to lose some rights
I have SKS and many bolt rifles shotguns.)
Also the goverment will do this one house at a time, not yell out a loudspeaker "give up your guns"
You will look out your window one day and see down the street where a guy did not give his guns up, and you will see police, Swat, military and AFV using advanced weapons.. You will not run down to help him, most others will not either, the military has SAWS and all kinda of high tech weapons, Bullet proof vest that can stop 300 win mags etc, stuff you can not get.
You will be next in a few days time.
the biggest threat to them is not you and your guns, but the ballot box. The media has most of that covered though with all the anti gun people brain washing people.
our Goverment has made it so most people care less about guns or hunting. And that is less voters to go agaist them.
35 years ago everyone hunted, now hardly any youth hunts, the governments passed laws to make it hard to hunt, people born after 1986 have to take a 10 hour hunter safty course to get a hunting license, pay for it, take time to go to it etc.
We learned from our elders how what to do and not to do on hunting safety. It is a good thing to learn, but kids just say "forget it" mostly.
That is less voters for the leftists to worry about
it may be 5 10 or 25 years till guns are outlawed, but it will happen.
