I'm pretty much at a lose as to why anyone would give up a legally owned firearm to anyone

The government can bring overwhelming force to bear on individual targets, but I think the topic is more directed towards what if they tried to enforce a widespread confiscation. That would require spreading their manpower quite thin.

That would not work out well for the police. After the first couple houses they do this too, phone calls will be made, and people will gather. I wouldn't give it long before the police found themselves completely outgunned, out numbered, and surrounded.

Actually had that happen when i was still in texas. Had a officer in an unmarked car try to pull me over at night. I drove 10 miles at the speed limit to the next well lit service station with a lot of people before talking to him. I was carrying with texas chl at the time.

I got out of the car asked him who he was. And asked for his id. Handed him my ccw and dl he asked me to surrender my gun so we could talk. I politely said no as i was not convinced he was a real cop. I explained middle of the night unmarked car he could be some yahoo out to kidnap and murder me. And i will wait for the highway patrol.

The highway patrol eventually showed up. The reason he pulled me over was taillight out. Ended up no ticket.

But during a normal traffic stop i dont have much issue with handing over a firearm temporarily. Im speaking of natural disaster type thing when any goblin/looter can claim to be fema.

I dont need nor want the "help" of the federal government if it means i have to be unarmed.

Okay folks, here is my take on this thread.

Are we certain that those idiots that took the weapons were actually LEOs or FEMA?

Why did the person have a weapon without ammo?
Why did the person even mention that she had a firearm?
If she did not volunteer the information, how did the idiots know that she had any weapons?

As for me, I will only give up my weapons when Jesus makes his return. Other than that, those trying to take my weapons will have a better chance of making a snowball in Guam.

I believe this is one of the reasons why communication must be hampered.
Internet, Phone might just have to be shut down. if it isn't already disabled.

I am glad to to know that the written law still favors the individual.

This whole issue can be settled with one statement:
