Americans did not buy firearms and ammunition in record numbers just to have them confiscated by a bunch of elitists.

There will be a lot of dead bodies if they try that.

The above statement, if not clarified, is NOT true. If the government makes an example out of 2-3 individuals/families (i.e. Waco, Ruby Ridge), the general public will fold. However, if the general public begins NOW to organize and set up a check system to catch infiltrators and lets the government know that tyranny will NOT be tolerated, then the government will fold, because the government is made up of the sons and daughters of the people and when told enough is enough will not be willing to kill a lot of people and still not get the desire result of submission.

If you do not begin to organize NOW, then the government will make you fold your hand.

I agree.

BTW I have heard a lot about the book “Unintend. Cons.” for a long time but had never read, or even been able to find. All I thought I knew was that supposedly it went to the armed insurrection scenario and was thus sort of ... oh, I don’t know, suspect a bit maybe.

I finally tracked down a copy and have just started reading.

What I did NOT know about were the details in the historical foundation that it lays out. It is astounding, the way things went in the past to head us toward where we are now.

The idea - in 1934 - of a $200 tax that one was required to pay, to keep old guns worth $5 to $10, which one had owned for years, and when folks were barely getting by - when the federal firearms law was enacted - was then and is now clearly ridiculous.

And that the law was upheld by the Supreme Court (when found unconstitutional in district court) - because the defendants had moved and couldn’t be found, and thus the defense lawyers didn’t show, AND the federal attorney misrepresented the case and the situation?

Your point is well taken. Folks need to let the legislators know that they cannot go where they are talking about going. We cannot let things slide.

What a mess.
