Okay so the usual suspects have posted with excellent and entertaining posts (see my "likes") and we have the usual advice about how OPEN this forum is to regular eyes.
So. Do we drop it at that? Nah, I think we must educate the OP and we must also educate some of our newer members as this position has batted about more times than Madonna at a Heidi Fleis hosted get together. :roll eyes:
Being the "beverage manager" on the FTF cruise and schlepping WAY too many Pelican Cases and Haliburton Primo cases when the bell hop was too drunk to perform.... :roll eyes: That cruise was the single largest loss of ordinance in the history of charter vessels.
So let's suspend disbelief here for 10 or so minutes while JD runs down the usual list of characters.
Okay, the UN has leveraged the US Senate and Congress to overlook about 39,999,900 GAZILLION dollars in foreign debt that the US has given to EVERY country on the planet and convinced them to ignore 2A and confiscate EVERY weapon inside the border of the United States of America.
The puppet of the moment sitting as POTUS is happy as hell to sign off on this decree and immediately pens it in the blood of his own children because the lack of guns means harmony everywhere. Just like they have in every other country that disallows their citizens to own weapons. :roll eyes:
This is hailed the second coming! We can take that elusive bite of the apple out of Eve's mouth and make the paradise that God himself actually wished for us.
So everyone is on board and now it's just a matter of taking the action to the "GO" state.
National Guard! Local LEO! You guys are up. Even though you aren't exactly Feds, you have been appointed to handle this confiscation. You will know go to every single home in the county/city you are serving/protecting and confiscate every weapon, in every home, until you have them all! *rubs hands greedily*
Wait! What do you mean you aren't going to do it?! What do you mean some of those people are friends and family and you trust them?! What do you mean some of those people are complete strangers and you want "no part" of trying to walk onto private property and take things from them?! This is for the greater good!!!!
That's it, fire the National Guard, fire every badge holding LEO!! They are worthless! Suspend "Posse Comitatus" and get me the military! I want real boots on the ground!!
What?!?!? What the hell do you mean that the military is refusing to confiscate the weapons?!!? What?! What do you mean that military members are saying they won't confiscate weapons HERE
because someone else in uniform is confiscating from their family THERE
?!?! That makes no sense to me!
You see OP, this is the crux of how this would have to happen. Even if 50% of the troops are willing to confiscate weapons, they have to deal with the 50% that will not. I mean, who wants another badge going into THEIR families' land/property/house and roughing them up trying just to "follow orders"?
You factor in private, person to person sales, heirloom hand me downs, military "recoveries" from wartime and you are talking about more weapons than were EVER licensed to a registered individual.
Assume you get 100% buy in? Patrols of storm troopers are just going to roll down the street, grabbing weapons from every house on the block, and putting them in the back of a dump truck that is rolling down the center of main street?
Certainly there wouldn't be a small group of people (like the French Resistance) who are looking for JUST such an opportunity to "acquire" arms to equip their other freedom fighters. :roll eyes:
Logistically speaking, what you are asking is a nightmare FAR beyond the average team of "well meaning, politically motived ladder climbers" even in Brentwood.
What is going to happen in Kentucky? Or Tennessee? Or West Virginia? Or, f*ck me, Texas?!??!
