    I know you have all heard the news in Boston. It is very sad that a Leo lost his life and innocents. I have been thinking about the police activity.

    What would YOU do in a situation where they went door to door taking guns? Just curious. I'm not trying to collect a list of names (lol) but I am really pondering this. I mean we spend so much money in protecting ourselves and family for them to just take it all away. I don't care how many police are in my town during martial law, I still want to have a firearm to access. I'm sure they aren't going to position cops in each house. Again guys not trying to start a debate. Just want your wise input on how to handle a situation. I guess I personally would remain quiet. "Sorry officer, we voted for Obama and took biden's advice and got our shotgun taken away for firing two blasts in the air."

    Edit- For those of you that are making comments that this post says that gun were taken, the second half was a SCENARIO S C E N A R I O Guns were not taken, martial law not declared but houses were searched lightly.

    They ain't coming in my house without a warrant, period. To me, martial law does not equate to coming in my house, taking my guns and setting up shop.. That scenario is exactly what the 2nd amendment is for.

    I agree dead. This is a great plan and a sensible one. I just ponder in the Katrina martial law case.

    Not exactly sure what you mean..?
    That was kind of a unique situation where ppl were displaced(I won't even go there), and idiots were looting etc.. In that environment, if I'm not displaced I'm certainly locking down lol

    I'm saying it was dramatic. It was a unique situation as you stated above. On the contrary, they were confiscating from high and dry gated communities. And what if your funs were taken and the looters took your house. Some people said they only took the unattended guns. I think they took then all.

    I would take serious issue with that!!!!
    I find it hard to believe gun owners would leave guns unattended, BUT with that said, we have found guns, nice guns left behind in foreclosed homes and in unpaid storage units.. Confusing to say the least.
    In a situation like that I could see ppl that planned and left in plenty if time taking their guns/collections but people who waited till the last minute having to leave some behind. In the other hand gun collectors usually strike me as the type to plan ahead and leave in advance of a disaster they could see coming..
    Ohhh I'm confused now :( lol

    :) yeah that makes sense. It is not responsible to leave guns anywhere without a lock on them.

    There was no martial law declared in N.O...........The cops decided to confiscate guns for thier protection. The only problem was, they were taking guns from honest citizens, and raiding the gun shops and stores that sold guns, then the weapons some how all disapeared.....Most made there way to Texas................:mad::mad::mad:

    The police never entered homes in Boston. They went by and ask if everyone was OK? I do question this "Quasi" undeclared martial law. This was nothing more than a political stunt. Problem is not everyone knows you are only joking. :confused:

    No beans about it..............

    All i saw was a cluster &&&& from the way the local and main Gov. went about the whole deal. were it not for the locals they would still be scratching there balls. And the media only helped this time by posting photos. Lets not for get the DC sniper. With all the man power and money of the Gov.........It's all ways the same..... The honest citizen is the one who turns the tables on the bad guy.................:)

    That's the way it is 90 percent of the time. And that's the way it should be. Law enforcement personnel depend on law abiding citizens to be their "eyes and ears."

    The situation in Boston was a perfect example of that.

    Shutup. If you took time to read the post, I did not say they declared martial law. I didn't say guns were taken. You are a piece of work. Being an a#$ hole all the time is not a good way to make friends. Before you make fake comments on posts, read the articles.

    They did in fact. They did light searches on many homes just to make sure everyone was ok. No harm in that. No guns were taken etc.. And yeah, I am not joking, i didn't realize people were so blind to a scenario and an intro into the news. The second half of the post is what if... The first part is what happened.

    What I meant is guns were taken. When I reference martial law, I am referencing the taking of firearms. All the other police action stuff is fine by me, just don't stand on my constitution rights.

    If they come for my guns in force like we saw in Boston, I will offer them coffee and help tote 'em to the truck. I will be waving as they drive off, "you boys have a nice day, now".

    So would 99% of the people on this forum.
