What will happen if Obama Orders the U.S. Military to Confiscate Guns in America?
The World News Magazine ^ | March 4, 2013 | Zach Jones

Posted on 03/05/2013 2:07:52 AM PST by ZachJones

(Are you sure? A military comprised primarily of sons, daughters, brothers and sisters of gun owning families.)

It is time for Americans to start thinking seriously about the possibility that their sons and daughters may be put in the untenable position going house-to-house, confiscating firearms and ammunition from their friends and family? What will they do?

Throughout the military - the kids, grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and friends of veterans and gun enthusiasts are likely weighing the possibilities of such an order and just how far they personally would be willing to go in carrying out something that would rip the very fabric of this nation apart and go against everything they’ve sworn to protect. In thinking the unthinkable, certainly they must be questioning the end game and who are the real good guys. Especially, when they see...

...If you are on the ‘progressive’ left, what do you think? Are you sure? Really?

Let’s look at a few demographics that might cause you on the left to reassess your certainty.

In 2001, a survey was completed by Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) in North Carolina of the 50 states, DC and Territories asking people nationwide if there are any guns in their homes. The percentage of people having guns in their homes ranged from 59.7% in Wyoming to...

I spent some time looking at surveys regarding how people have guns in households and statistical military data regarding where our enlistees come from and in what percentages.

I’m willing to bet the US Military will NOT be used to confiscate the guns because they are Constitution friendly. I bet it will be DHS. Maybe the reason for all those APCs and ammo they’ve bought lately.

The military would step in and seize the government. Free elections would follow, minus the Democratic party.

Highly doubtful any US Military guys, who are probably gun owners themselves, are going to try and take guns away from fellow Americans.

Obama planned to starve the military out first, defund it so its not of any threat to him.

Or his Muslim Brotherhood agenda.

Do not underestimate the psychological power play in effect here. Waco massacre over a barrel that was one inch longer than legal. Women and children died there while their attackers heard them scream. It is foolish to believe it will not occur again. One inch. Nazi death camps full of innocents. It is simple, depersonalize “the enemy” and there will be enough force and manpower willing to do the job.

Over half of the military would go AWOL and become part of the resistance.
That half would probably destroy the Fabian Fascists running our country, today, because they know where, when, and how to hit them, and win!

Excerpting yourself?

Sounds painful.

I spent some time looking at surveys regarding how bloggers try to excerpt their material on FreeRepublic for hits and statistical data regarding how many readers skip over those excerpted articles.

My research on this does not qualify as “news.”

You are right that DHS would be involved. I don’t think they could do it alone. I hope this article is shared with veterans and military just to get them thinking about the possibilities. Take care.

I also believe the diehard socialist supporters, gays and lesbians plus the Muslims will then have to stay behind guarded gates and tight security, because if they ever left the base to go shopping, to a bar, to the movies they will come under attack.

There will be a massive social network just waiting to track them and to identify them.

If left to his projected course Obama will form his own army with the assistance of NATO. Almost certainly according to Matt Brackens novels, in a way predictable that can be used strategically against him.

But one must ALWAYS assume the enemy has equal if not more intel as you would have.

It will not be the military but the jack booted wanna bees that did not make the cut for the military.

The Nappy trained DHS and Obama Brown Shirt Brigades and others in the National Guard who will not step down. Like during Katrina, Waco and Ruby Ridge and countless other home invasions, these are the type who we will encounter doing the knock knocks and driving the newly purchased vehicles. These are the types who will be flying the drones overhead.

Time to start doing the research is now.

Damn Democrats - remember, the orders were given by Democrats, and the US troops were National Guardsmen under orders from their governor, not the Federal command structure.

Still doesn’t change the fact that apparently US troops will demonstrably accept the order and carry it out.

The military would do what they’re told by those who pay them; there is no reason to think otherwise. The war in Iraq showed how analytical our military is.

The DHS is led by a real tyrant. However, I would bet that there are many in DHS ranks that don’t agree with want is going on. We need to be having conversations with veterans, military, carefully feeling out DHS people, local police, sheriffs etc.

I don’t think he’s going to ask the military. I think he’s going to lock the military down, and use DHS and Federal LEOs to do the dirty work, backed up by 2500 MRAPs.

Discussion: As important as range time is do we all want to expend what ammo we have, even range dedicated ammo for target shooting at a time we cannot replace the ammo due availability?

As a veteran I monitor a lot of service related blogs and social media in relation to opinions and current activity of active duty guys. If the unthinkable were to happen I’m completely convinced the hard core “boots on the ground” types will do what’s right. And I’m talking about the 11B’s, Marines and Special Forces types, not the POG’s sitting behind desks and filing out paperwork. The hardcore guys that are literally on the line know a lawful order from an unlawful order and they are VERY vocal about this issue. They DO keep up with current events. In one recent posting I’ve seen they were discussing the easiest way to take out those military grade vehicles that DHS just purchased. I’m not worried about our brothers in arms. they would be one of our best assets along with us veterans.

They will start in the ghettos, disarming the “violent”. After the troops are desensitized, they will move on to softer objectives...

"step in...seize government"

That's a far more likely scenario than the military going door to door to seize guns. Most military people are right-wingers. How in the world is Obama going to get these patriots to confiscate guns from other patriotic Americans? I think we'd see a coup first, and Obama knows it. We'll never see an order like that.

And the NOLA confiscations came to an abrupt halt when, behind the scenes, other agencies made clear things would get ugly if continued.

A common theme in NOLA: the “confiscations” were voluntary handovers. Save perhaps the one incident of the old lady, agents asked and arms were turned over; those unwilling to comply were left alone.

Bingo: Finally the correct answer.

The military is trained from the git-go to obey orders. That is what they will do.

A few may balk, but they will quickly be dealt with.

Or they will arm the ghettos to the extent that they need any more arms and set them off to create the anarchy and societal collapse they need to totally remake the country. With enough chaos, they can start using area weapons and just eliminate whole sectors whenever they want.

In 1917, the Russian Czar ordered his troops to fire on their own people. Instead, the military joined the insurrection.

The mere fact that we don’t KNOW what the military will do speaks volumes. And the DHS, SSA, NOAA, etc. doing the job, are there enough people available to search every home, every apartment, every business in the country? Not in any reasonable time frame to prevent “shuffling” weapons around.

I know that Elmer Fudd and his regime have no regard for our freedoms and they will create another crisis, if need be, to strip us of all our freedoms. There is only safety in groups. Pitched battles can’t be kept secret; individual firefights can.

It will be bangitybang bang bang using all that “homeland secure” ammo they have been buying lately. As in enough to fight the war in Afganistan for THIRTY YEARS.

That’s what I’m thinking. hussein said in 2008 he wanted a domestic army. Looks like he is turning DHS into it. I think as soon as they think DHS has enough of the bullets, drones, and APCs they have on order, they’ll pull a few stunts to cause massive civil unrest. Then hussein will be reluctantly “forced” to take drastic actions like Marshall law, firearms confiscation, suspension of other rights. Who knows, maybe as much as restricting interstate travel, stopping elections, making it illegal to gather in public, shutting down the internet (gotta control the flow of information like every other dictator), etc etc. I used to think these things couldn’t happen here. Now I think there is a very real, non-zero chance they not only could, but will because those in power want them to happen.

Obama cannot understand the principles that are the United States of America. He was not raised here. He sees governments and governing from the perspective of someone who grew up in a Third World country. He looks on this country as just something for him to control and rule. Obama is no different than any Third World Despot; he wants no checks and balances, he just wants to rule by decree.
He sees gun control as a threat to his continued reign. Arms in the hands of citizens will be the only barrier to his imposition of totalitarianism and the genocide of all who oppose him.

“Save perhaps the one incident of the old lady, agents asked and arms were turned over; those unwilling to comply were left alone.” CD2

False - there may have been a few voluntary turn-overs - many were not.

Many confiscations gave no receipt for the firearms.

The NRA won a court case over the city of New Orleans on this very subject. It is in the public record.

Your assertion that these confiscations were all voluntary (save the one episode seen by many on tape) is laughable.

Do you really expect posters on FR to believe that tripe?

Discussion: As important as range time is do we all want to expend what ammo we have, even range dedicated ammo for target shooting at a time we cannot replace the ammo due availability?

I have thought about that and implemented my solution.
I verified the sighting of the scopes, cleaned and oiled them well and put them up.

As a competitive IPSC handgunner I long ago learned the benefits of dry firing, and visualization (read The Miracle Of Sports Psychology by Bennett Pravitz, if you can find a copy (is out of print)).

The point is, stop burning up the ammo and use your mind for practice, from the scenario to the sight picture to the squeeze and let off.
