That is truly amazing! I wonder if it’s possible for the citizenry to amass this kind of firepower, without something horrible breaking out. I sure hope the government doesn’t make any stupid mistakes, like, not keeping their appropriate place.

There's a bit at the bottom that I didn't copy/paste:

They didn’t know when they’d be getting anything back in stock, from magazines to rifles to pistols. Manufacturers were running full-bore, but couldn’t come close to keeping up with market demand. It wasn’t just the AR-15s, the AK-pattern rifles, the M1As, and the FALs that were sold out. It really hit me when I realized that the World War-era M1 Garands, M1 carbines, and Enfield .303s were gone, along with every last shell. Ubiquitous Mosin-Nagants—of which every gun store always seems to have 10-20—were gone. So was their ammo. Only a dust free space marked their passing. I’ve never seen anything like it.

Every weapon of military utility designed within the past 100+ years was gone. This isn’t a society stocking up on certain guns because they fear they may be banned. This is a society preparing for war.

There was already somewhere north of 400 million firearms in private hands so another 65 million doesn’t change the equation a whole lot. The number of citizens who own one or more firearms is somewhere north of 100 million as well. Anyone who thinks the gooberment is going to go door to door and confiscate them should crunch some numbers and look at how much personnel would be needed, how much money would have to be allocated and how many years it would take.
