It’s ironic, but in 1775 our forefathers started a revolution against their government over far less tyranny and oppression than what we suffer under today. Far less.

Our forefathers would have been shooting by now.

However, I suspect that if and when the government comes for the guns things will get hot.

I don’t think so, but soon. Our forefathers started shooting when they were shot at when the British were trying to disarm them.

They would have been shooting decades ago. The difference today obviously is the weaponry. In 1775 it was pretty much the same across the board. Today with SWAT teams and everything else the military has at it’s disposal, when it comes to the point of standing or surrendering, you pretty much know you will die. You can defend yourself and family against looters if properly armed, but not an all out on-slaught from the government. We’ll die with dignity and a patriotic heart, or die with shame knowing we surrendered as a coward.
