    All of you have valid concerns and different plans to deal with the potential event of confiscation of your weapons by an act of socialism. Just like the saying goes "guns don't kill people, people kill people", it is the same truism for “government doesn't confiscate guns, people confiscate guns". In other words it is the current culture, the current society, your next door neighbors that will take our guns away. It is not the attitude of a single politician but the ammunition in the form of votes by his constituents that will garnish our weapons. The war against extreme gun control is fought in our minds by reasoning, strategizing and execution of counter-measures. Lobbying is not enough. We have to win the hearts and minds of the anti-gunners, not all of them but enough to give us peace of mind. These people, believe it or not, are our fellow citizens, our fellow Americans. These are the very people you and I would protect with deadly force if necessary. So, how do we do at least get them to understand our side of the story? First we should not alienate them but invite them into our world of safe and responsible gun ownership. Listen to their concerns without getting defensive and then rebuttal in a friendly way and shake hands afterwards. They will see that we are good, hardworking law-abiding citizens with a logical reason to support the Second Amendment. Slowly over time we may win-over allies from the opposition. I believe it is a societal conflict that should be settled with friendship and wisdom not “civil war”.

    Yep, good idea. The media uses fear to convince the people that guns are bad. Big city mayors can't solve the crime problem so they attack the tools criminals use. Then the state government jumps on the bandwagon. When it's all said and done, you have more restrictions and outright bans. Illinois is a prime example. Chicago is a plague on this State. The Mayor has invited us to leave the State if we don't like it. Would be nice if everyone on this forum and others like it would join the Illinois State Rifle Association and help in the fight.

    Here is an interesting, if not insightful, article about the anti-gun mentality and how to deal with it more effectively. I found it today while searching for answers to our perplexing anti-gun mentality problem. Please go to the following web site.

    Re: What! Take My Guns?

    I just listened to a conservative christian radio station today that said and I quote that their trying to pass laws that will emply disciplinary action for language used on the internet . The kind of language in this thread would possibly qualify if "they" get there way . What a sad day in America that would be ! The liberals want to silence YOUR voice that in itself is just as bad as taking your guns away think about it . They want to inforce hate speach laws. I believe everyone has the right to voice their opinion with that being said the public school system can teach (force) our children about homosexuals but we dare not rise up and tell them what the bible says let alone have prayer in our schools and we wonder why our economy is going down hill . We have pushed God almighty OUT! If we would stand for whats right and have some morals once again then God will bless our country like he did while our four fathers were standing for what's right !!

    "God bless America"

    I say God has blessed America . I'm afraid were about to see his judgment.
