This may be old news. I knew they confiscated guns in New Orleans. I didn't know the orders that were given. This is scary ****.

Really? And why the hell not? This was the military in conjunction with local LE.
If the government can't even get nationwide registration how are they going to have nationwide confiscation?

That seems more likely to happen then the whole country at one time.

oh yes, but of course they are going to send you a letter knowing when it will happen if it were to happen!

it would happen just the way they have chipped away at the 2nd admendment, one little piece at atime, never all at once.

And I said no for what there are so many police and ARMED SOLDIERS WITH NO AMMO ! That I am safe ! Hell I had my AR, Glock 40, 357, and a 12 gauge F that noise you want me driving around the slums unarmed you better go smoke more crack morons !

Something happens and you say it can never happen again...Yeah, that's what will happen...no way. No way to do it nation wide? A few more shootings and maybe we get martial law to because obviously we can't be trusted to be left to our own devices. May terror attacks home grown or otherwise.

I can't say it will happen but it can. I know it can because it's already happened. Just not at a national level........in this country anyway.
...No way...It can never happen :rolleyes:

A group of pieces of crap, brought this country to its knees (briefly), with some box cutters and fingernail files.

We should have banned Home Depot immediately!

Right?

How many people will fight back honestly...after watching that it put it in better perspective. I have a baby on the way and honestly dont know what id do. I want to say fight back and it feels like the right thing to do but what if no one else does. Thats the part that scares me. What is the better choice fight for my freedom or live so my child has a father...

If I see them doing it to my neighbors, I don't wait for them to get to my door. I open fire.

It's kind of that one vote don't make a difference thing. Count all those one votes and all of a sudden you get a bunch of people. too bad they are not more motivated, maybe things would be a little different these days.

You have to do what you believe is right. Then hope you made the right decision. For me the idea of going against the powers that be scares the hell out of me. But what is better? Live as a slave or or die free? This too has happened before. So it just might happen again. Hope it never gets to that point though. Old broke down guys make crappy soldiers :eek:

You have three different kinds of gun owners:

1. People who owns guns for target practice/sport shooting
2. People who own guns for home defense/personal protection
3. People who owns guns to protect themselves against bad government

People in groups 1 and 2 will give up their guns when the law comes to get them. People in group 3 are going to die defending the constitution. I wish there were more people in group 3 than in groups 1 and 2, but sadly, I don't think there is.

then why has there been an increased membership in the NRA and other gun rights groups? why the huge sales of (hate this term!) "assault rifles"? why are there increased numberss of peoplesigning up for CC classes?

Most of those people are not worried about the 2nd Amendment as much as having to give up their guns. Group 2 people and Group 3 people are a lot more concerned about the 2nd Amendment than Group 1 people are.

Those people are assuming the future laws won't affect the weapons that they currently own.

I think the vast majority of gun owners simply think that the second amendment says we have the right to keep and bear arms. And they believe that is the actual wording. They have no idea what the real purpose of the 2A is. That would be to protect ourselves from a tyranical government!
