    Worry not about that. I will not- as I have stated- kick in any doors i am not being shot at from. Easy to say since I am not a grunt anyways.

    I think what makes all this so bothersome is not just the gun control. Even the dumbest Marine can see the country is getting ready for... something. And it would make anyone pretty nervous to have a restriction placed on their personal protection (from private and government agencies) in these times.

    In the military maybe you see everything as a war about to begin. Only with this issue and these times it isn't Korea, Iran, Syria, or anywhere foreign country, but US. It's personal this time. With the economy, social issues, and now the refusal of many to see the difference between free men and slaves (armed and unarmed) you can see where a young guy trained to go to war could get antsy.

    Hell, my oldest (14) has said she will die before they take a gun out of our house! Even she through school has caught on to it. she honestly believes the world did end as predicted the moment that monster entered that school. Nothing will be the same "because now they have an excuse, daddy." Maybe I am worrying about that too. My Marines, my kids, love 'em both to death and don't want them making rash decisions based on what may be true, but ill voiced at times.

    I must admit I add some fuel with my adamant and outspoken support of the 2A. It is the Amendment that protects the rest in my view. Seeing it take a hit is like seeing my country wasted and I say so often and loudly. It may be rubbing off a bit too much.

    As an infantry officer instructing North Korean weapons and tactics in Korea in '81, I subverted an order by the Division G-2, which I considered both illegal, wildly irresponsible and which could have injured or killed several service members, as well as damaging valuable government property.

    Same boat for me. I am an NCO in the Army as well as a LEO. If I got the order to go door to door and take someone's 2A away, I get to tell them to pound sand twice. I think that little clause in the Oath of enlistment is the only reason why they haven't tried it yet.

    Do you really think they would start out with a door to door confiscation?

    They are smarter and more experienced than that. It will be incremental. A handful of 'trouble makers', or whatever fancy label they come up with, will probably be the ice breakers. You're just backing up a few patrol officers because the SWAT team is not available/able to handle this workload at this time. That's all.

    First thing they will do is to infiltrate as many militias as possible because people are seeking out ways to coordinate themselves for the Second American Revolution. Knock down the militia, paint them as crazed religious zealots out to get revenge against paying their taxes.

    And also will be the plan to target rabblerousers and openly aggressive posters on forums like this. Especially the ones that actually have cojones, brains and tactical training, so they will search for veterans and start rounding them up for mental evaluations.
