This is a very slickly produced 16 minute short film, showing what Civil War Two might look like, on the first day of the 2nd American Revolution.
It's very sobering, and very well worth watching.

Home view bump.
The problem that I have here is this. We are all Americans and I find it difficult to believe that American citizens would visit such violence upon their brothers. Should something like this come to pass, I believe that the military would step in. As a person who spent 20+ years of his life in the military, I find it difficult to believe that I could have been induced to gun down my fellow citizens. Those of the Homeland Security ilk might be another matter in that they are a purely political creation.
So do I, and that's the plot of my third novel.
Make sure you watch both parts.
Many people thought that in 1860.
“As a person who spent 20+ years of his life in the military, I find it difficult to believe that I could have been induced to gun down my fellow citizens.”
I believe most will be on our side.
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”

Whiskey Rebellion. Shay's Rebellion. The Bonus Army march. Kent State. Waco. Ruby Ridge. Elian Gonzales.
And of course the War Between the States.
The military will kill anyone the President tells them to. Anyone who doesn't believe that is whistling past the graveyard of history.
Ping for home view
I think it is probably safe to say that we are all on some list somewhere. Sooner or later, the wolf (be it DHSF as shown in the short film, or some form of International Peacekeeping and Firearms Confiscation Team) will be at the door, ready to take you apart.
The question is "Will you be inside, or outside looking through a sight system at your unwelcome guest?" While being on the outside may appear to be the best answer at first glance, you would win the battle and lose the war, as we see in the movie.
I once had a disgruntled (former) BATFE agent tell me this: "Be nice to them, cooperate fully with them and give them every firearm you have that is documented in your name, or present the 'bill of sale' where you sold it to a person (now deceased)." (Emphasis mine.) "Offer them a cup of coffee, a cookie, and talk to them, getting as much personal information on them as you can - full names, hobbies, etc. If they ask you to fly the NWO flag, ask them on which side of the front door you should mount the flag pole. Then wait a couple of months until they have several closed investigations between the current date and their little visit to your place. During that time, find out everything you can about them and see if you can nail down their daily routine. Then, using the firearms not on paper, express your disatisfaction regarding the usurping of the Constitution."
It is very helpful to know the location of convenient hog lots, if you are in a rural area... If you live in the city, make sure you have a man-hole cover lifting bar.
Of course, all of this is just hypothetical. ;-) Just sayin'...
Will need to view this at a later time...so pinging myself
Looks a little like an *Army of One* signup vid.
The guy in the wheelchair looks like a young Jim Robinson. (weird)
The whole thing is a pretty bleak look into our future. Hope more than a handful hear the call to arms.
You know, my buddy and I were sitting and talking guns we had bought recently and invariably the conversation moved to government ordered confiscation. I told my friend, who is of like mind, that I would throw my badge at the first SOB who ordered me to go and confiscate citizens guns.
It’s a crying shame that an outfit like Oathkeepers has already been labeled an anti-government militia group by the SPLC, simply becaue they won’t follow illegal orders.
Truth be known, I don’t know of too many people who would follow any orders of confiscation. If the Feds ordered the local police to do it, the locals will laugh and tell them to get bent. I work with a lot of Fed LEO’s and most of them have more than just a professional interest in firearms, many are gun enthusiasts.
I can’t say about the military but again no military officer is going to order me or my colleagues to confiscate firearms.
Will have to check it out tomorrow. Home computer is too jacked up.
I am sure that I and the rest of you are on at least one, "The Right Wing Extremists of Free Republic" list. LOL
You know, those "lists" would be a good starting point for identifying the true "Patriots" of this country.
Those creating those lists, not so much.....
Remember Hurricane Katrina?
Thanks for the ping.
TY for the ping. Very good video that everyone needs to see.
Ok, so you have ONE example. ONE.
This was order issued by an incompetent chief, a chief admittedly who had never faced a disaster scenario like this before. A chief who was under extreme duress because five hundred members of his police department had either walked away from the job (most of which thought the city was a lost cause), were unaccounted for, or a small portion were participating in the looting. The only police chief that might have faced something similiar was the LA chief during the Rodney King riots.
A chief who worked at the behest of a democratic mayor and council. A mayor who is member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, a dubious group, that truth be known, could probably live with just dropping the word Illegal from their title.
A chief of police of a city that even before Katrina, scored consistently in the top five most violent cities in the US.
It’s wrong to make the rallying cry “Remember Katrina!” as an opportunity to paint all police officers with a broad brush and inflame passions about gun confiscations.
