Yeah, right there is a perfect example of people who make millions of dollars cranking out fantasy movies about the "good guy" killing people by the dozens, then get on TV advocating the disarmament of us "low-life commoners", who may some day fire one shot to keep from being murdered by a criminal.
Another example of how what's good for the "royalty" being unacceptable for us "riff-raff".

Many times on FTF and other forums I've seen the founding fathers quote...

"Those who would sacrifice liberty for the promise of temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety"

I would like to remind everyone that these words were spoken in the contex of revolitionary leaders struggling against there oppresssors and doing so with only 13% of the colonial population participating and supporting the cause.

These words were not a battle cry to our colonial heroes...they were a warning, a less than subtle warning to the colonists who were openly supporting the crown.

Gun owners who consider participating in any "forced" buy back should be reminded of this fact.

Should push come to shove, no amount of "kneeling" will keep any of us safe. 2A was penned for a reason and as another founder pointed out...

"The beauty of the Second Ammendment is that it will not be needed...until it is used."

Tack

Very good post TBerry1. I think from what I have read over the years the Patriots numbered around 7%. We will never know the correct numbers. We do know thousands of people escaped to Canada from America. There were some 20,000 who returned to Europe to escape the Revolution.
Nothing has really changed when the fight comes. There are around 100 million gun owners in America. There are only 4 million members in the NRA.

Umm, that would be 4 million and 1 as of about an hour ago. There is a link on another thread to the nra. Buy a 1 year membership for 25 bucks and get a 25 dollar gift card from bass pro. How cool is that !

They've been gaining members like crazy these last couple of weeks.

7% fought...only another 6% supported with indirect efforts...hence the 13%

I believe there are 80 million gun owners....if only 10% resist were talking about confederate gurilla force of 8 million.

US standing military is approx 1.5 million

Throw LEO's and guard members on top of that, then deduct 50% for those who would choose there oath over there paycheck...and I'm not to worried about the outcome...

But they have a lot of things we couldn't even dream of owning and using.

This country is huge, vast. Where I live it's wide open spaces with plenty of places to hide out and a lot of area to move around in. They can't be everywhere at once, there just aren't enough of them to control a country this big even with all their technology. Just think about how many men it would take to attempt to control even one of the huge cities we have in America, let alone 50 of them. And the cities are where most of the population of the country is, they'd have to focus there first.
