Skip to comments.Gun confiscation: How will it start?
Posted on 01/02/2013 4:03:29 PM PST by rustyboots
With all the recent talk about gun control, the high level of ammo/firearm purchasing and the just demonstrated lack of GOP gonads on fiscal matters, I started to wonder just how fast they would roll over for DiFi? But I guess the real question would be; If Difi got her wish on her new bill, how would they start if millions resisted? Would the government realize that there wasn't going to be a cheerful obedience to the new law and just let millions get away with this resistance? If there decided to go after gun owners who refused to register, how would they do it? Do they do massive overnight raids on FFL dealers/gun stores? Do they do the midnight raids on the common man? And then where do they start? What would happen if they raided 50 different locations in Texas versus raiding 50 different places in Kansas? Will we see resistance then? Of if successful, will the rest of America just bend over and grab their ankles? Just curious what many of you think? After 57 years, I am beginning to fear my government.... and many of the citizens of this great country.
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
they’ll send notices to every permitholder to turn inthei guns by a specific date. then they would sent swat teams to those who do not comply. those who still refuse will be arrested. divide and conquor. those who offer resistance will be amde examples of, and shot onthe scene.
you might see ruby ridge ocurring all over...
just this question alone tells me no one has faith in the Republican Party anymore.
I think that confiscation would almost immediately cause an event where LEOs are fired upon and probably killed. Then the state/fed gov. will overstep their bounds and guerrilla type tactics will be employed by citizens. Then we’ll see who’s talking and who’s walking. May God Bless America.
What guns ? I don’t have any guns anymore. I sold them to a freind of a friend. No, I don’t remember his name, they said they were “Going Gault” and I haven’t seen either of them in six months. I knew that they were lovers and moving to Idaho to have themselves a Brokeback Mountain fling.
Sorry to disappoint you.
If every gun owner resisted, the tyrants couldn’t do it.
99% will submit to the slaughter like sheep.
The other 1% will suffer horribly.
I sent a copy of this to my elected Wash DC officials Coats and Young from IN:
Hope it helps...

As an amateur historian of this sad century whose time is almost up, I would like to reflect upon six lessons I have learned in my studies. Folks who wish to live free and prosperous in the next century would do well to understand the failures of the past.
LESSON NO. 1: If a bureaucrat, or a soldier sent by a bureaucrat, comes to knock down your door and take you someplace you do not want to go because of who you are or what you think -- kill him. If you can, kill the politician who sent him. You will likely die anyway, and you will be saving someone else the same fate. For it is a universal truth that the intended victims always far outnumber the tyrant's executioners. Any nation which practices this lesson will quickly run out of executioners and tyrants.
LESSON NO. 2: If a bureaucrat, or a soldier sent by a bureaucrat, comes to knock down your door and confiscate your firearms -- kill him. The disarmament of law-abiding citizens is the required precursor to genocide.
LESSON NO. 3: If a bureaucrat tells you that he must know if you have a firearm so he can put your name on a list for the common good, or wants to issue you an identity card so that you be more easily identified -- tell him to go to hell. Registration of people and firearms is the required precursor to the tyranny which permits genocide. Bureaucrats cannot send soldiers to doors that are not on their list.
And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family?
Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?
The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalins thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!
If...if...We didnt love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

That’s how they do it!
Just went to get some lowers. GONE OLA.
Two month backorder and prices sky high.
FK it. I’m just gonna get that Kimber I’ve been looking at.
Stoopit Stoopit. STOOPIT¡¡¡¡¡¡
There is no Republican Party but just a bunch of chicken shi! nitwits that are as bad as the now Democratic communists party. America is ready to become a dictatorship that is controlled by a few hundred communists leaders. America is finished. The roll downhill will now speed up and before King Obama's term he will declare permanent ownership of America. THINK NOT?
Hmmm.....they are outnumbered.
Come get em....
“divide and conquer. those who offer resistance will be made examples of, and shot on the scene. You might see ruby ridge occurring all over...”
Ruby Ridge didn’t go so well for the Feds... It would go worse today with instant communications and all.
I’ll get to test my Luepold Mark IV and see if a heated round really will travel 1,000 yards accurately.
The government has fits over about a 100 LEOs killed in a year and a couple hundred solders killed in a year.
Let alone thousands of gun grabbers shot.
Remember a lot of the military and LEOs will not go along with it and will be part of the resistance.
Didn’t turn in your guns by the due date?
Lien on your house.
Bank accounts frozen.
Credit cards declined.
Drivers lisence suspended.
Any work lisence such as contractors, doctors, etc. suspended.
And so on.
No need for force
Draconian mandatory sentences, and easy convictions, would force compliance from most people.
