The police are nearer to doing that than the US military. What do you think the answers to that question would be if asked of the police? After all, they do it already in many parts of the US. My guess is 90% or more of the police would fire on civilians who would not give up their guns.
A few might take early retirement. Fewer still might refuse their orders and get fired. But most would do what the police in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, much of California and other places do right now. Fire on gunowners.
I agree jim. With the current moves to federalize city/state/county police in local matters they'll have the needed command structure as well.
