Default What would you do if

The government (or local law enforcement) comes to your home and ask for all your firearms?
Think about this one for awhile before you answer, Don't say anything you may not carry out.

How I'd react would depend on the situation. Some clown without a warrant will get a "What firearms, officer? You want to come in to look around? May I see a warrant? Well, you go get a warrant and come on back." sort of response. If they force their way in, they keep what they can find.

Immediately after (or during, if possible) such an encounter, I would be on the phone to friends and family warning them what's going on.

If possible, DO NOT keep all of your firearms and ammo in your home. Stash something away for a rainy day.

The follow-up question I have is this: What would you do after this particular bravo sierra went down?

I'm gonna have to go with bkt on this one. If they don't have a warrant they aren't coming in, but if they do then they will take whatever they can find ( )and I won't stop them.

I'm with you on this. If they find 'em, they can have 'em. If.

Isn't it reasonable logic to think they would have a warrant?

During the largest illegal firearms confiscation in the history of the United States in the aftermath of Katrina in New Orleans they didn't have warrants and they didn't write out receipts to gun owners.
