ANd those helicopters, they need to be fueled.
And the men who fuel them have familes which are soft targets.
how many maintainers would show up for work, knowing they and their families are at risk if they participate in organized murder of the american people?
Well bluez, probably every single one of them because now you're threatening their families. If they don't do their jobs and use their weapons to defend their families against people who threaten to kill them because they're easier targets than going after military and law enforcement personnel, I'd consider that pretty good motivation for taking out all comers- whether they agree with the current administration's anti-gun agenda or not.
You know, the more I opinions I hear about what people would do if, when, or even before their government does something they don't like, the more I have come to the realization that the people making such statements are exactly like the people in the government they're so afraid of.
What exactly about the nature of how our government interacts with its people will change if someone like you takes over? If you are willing to do the same reprehensible things to our government personnel that you claim they will do or are trying to do to you, how are you any different than them (apart from the fact that you don't have all the hardware that they have)?
Perhaps I am mistaken, but I thought most of us here were grown men. Use all that piss and vinegar to come to the resolve to write your representatives (all of them and, repeatedly if necessary) to express your opinion on the government taking guns from civilians in an intelligent and civil way (this might be more difficult than I thought). With all the guns and ammunition sold in this country, there has to be more gun owners than people who don't own guns. You'd think they'd use their time to coordinate meetings to share ideas, pool funding, and recruit political resources to ensure that no one man, even the president, could ever determine whether or not the citizenry are permitted to be armed.
