    WHAT IF major manufactures like Federal and such that supplies our goverment with fire power decided to quit suppling ammo and such items? Im guessing the people who own these companies belive in the Constitution and our rights. I think they should should put all goverment orders on back order and fill the orders that fill us civilians 1ST!! Thoughts?

    I have way too much respect for every branch of our military as well as all levels of law enforcement to even consider such a rediculously and stupid suggestion as the above.

    Our military and LE have nothing to do with stupid decisions made by politicians and put their lives on the line every day.

    We as John Q Public elected the clowns making these stupid decisions and we as John Q Public deserve everything we get shoved up our backside. We did it - we need to take the consequences.

    Next time maybe we'll think when we vote but for now put the blame where it belongs - we deserve everything coming and we need to not try to punish military or LE for our dumb actions. AMEN

    If it would help stop the all out assault upon the Constitution they have sworn to defend I think active military would be supportive of it.

    What if the American ammo manufactures pissed off their biggest customer, the one customer they don't have to work for?

    I got into this early on and I've been very point blank in your face on many forums and with my friends and hunting buddies. Chest beating has no part in this.

    I agree with all 3. Hopefully that comes through.

    "The "Molon Labe" (come get them) quote is making the rounds, sounds cool, but who do you think is going to come. It will be our friends and families."

    Well at that point, I wouldn't be calling them friends or family.

    I live everyday by...."God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can.....and the wisdom to know the difference".....

    That applies to this and everything else discussed or will be discussed in the future.

    *I cannot change whats has already been done to disparage us and what we like to do. I cannot change legislation in place. I cannot change the attitudes of anti firearms advocates....

    *However I have the courage to attempt to change the opinions of those who are against us, I can attempt to change legislation already in place through peaceful means and support of organizations who have those means at their disposal.

    I look at people who changed attitudes like Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King through persistent but peaceful means. Ghandi was never violent either. Today is Martin Luther King day in his memory btw.

    Voilent actions will be met with violence always plus violence plays right into the hands of those who wish to malign the Constitution, which is the driving force behind all this anyway.

    As firearm owners we have become pawns in a chess game thats bigger than all of us. Persist, but do it peacefully.

    All I know is what I've read, and who I know personally. To that point the sherrif in Oregon is not alone in his sentiments, we saw the same thing happen in the mid 90's when a Sheriff from Ravalli Co. Mt. told congress to take their laws and stick as he had neither the desire or manpower to enforce a law that was wrong. I know the undersheriff here on a personal level, I seriously doubt he would be part of enforcing those laws, he's a helluva good man, with a good sense of right and wrong, I don't know the Sheriff on the same level so I can't comment on his stance, I do know some other Deputies fairly well though, enough that I feel they would not be on board with enforcing Obamma's wishes. So My opinion is that here locally it would not be those that know that would be coming to my door. We do however have the largest Border patrol office in the state in town, would it be them? I can't say I know some of them as well, I do not know them well though, some by facial recognition some by first name. My daughter being part of the Boarder patrol Explores program knows most of them better, she doesn't seem to feel that they would want any part of that action.

    My point is I really doubt it would be your friends or family coming, I really do believe that foreign troops would have to be called in, as those from here realize what it could quickly turn into, and nobody wants that. Politicians excluded.

    I don't think they'd find the climate to their liking here.
