    It is July 2005. Komrad Kerry is President. They have just passed AWB II. All military style semi autos (ARs, AK, Garands, FALs, ect...) have been banned. You refused to turn yours in at the deadline. They are now going through DOJ records and siezing illegal weapons nationwide.

    Seriously, what do you do? Do you make a stand? Or, do you turn yours in?

    No bravado. What will you do?

    They can have 'em

    I'll send the bullets out first.

    Not bravado, just the plain facts. I'd rather perish a 'free' man, and take some of the *$&#@^@ with me, than live on as a subject/serf/slave, which is what we will truely be if they come for the guns.

    What are the choices?

    a) Turn 'em in and live peacefully and "lawfully" for a few more years with your spouse and child(ren), albeit with less freedom?

    b) Turn 'em in and live peacefully and "unlawfully" by purchasing banned weapons on the black market?

    c) Lie through your teeth that you no longer own said firearms and hope they do not obtain a search warrant and if they do, hope you have your banned firearms hidden well enough that they do not find them? And when they find them you go to jail for 40 years?

    d) Same as c) except you turn in a couple in hopes that it appeases them and that they do not search for the others?

    e) Have an armed stand-off at home until they accuse you of being a child molester and burn down your house (leaving your family no where to live, assuming they are not burned alive with you)?

    f) Flee to some remote location with your banned firearms and you are never heard from again?

    g) Flee to some remote location with your banned firearms and they track you down and when you surrender with your hands up they shoot you anyways?

    h)

    what other options are there?

    Who is siezing illegal weapons? Last time I looked, the military was busy elsewhere dealing with the mess Shrub and his Dr. Strangelove clones created. LEO's sure aren't going to do this.

    Given what I've observed from many of the chest thumping touch typists that frequent this and other RKBA forums, it's obvious most people would obey the law and turn them in. It'd be the right thing to do.

    Drawing on the Canadian gun registration fiasco - Alberta is estimated to have non-compliance as high as 60% (from one source I found).

    Since Americans tend to buck authority at times, my guess is the majority of us will be putting our shovels to work.

    It'd be April 19, 1775 all over again.

    Probably nothing. If the JBTs do their research, they'll storm the fortress while I sleep, which wont be very good for me since I keep my HD gun withing easy reach (ie, suspect was killed in a clean shoot), or they'll quietly get them at night while I work, and have a car pick me up there.

    Imagine Kerry et al actually did get their dream bill through. So what? There are thousands of federal laws on the books that are virtually never enforced. This would be one of them. The feds have no desire to get shot enforcing some stupid law. So instead of storming everyone's house, they'd simply use the law as one more tool in their bag. If they don't like you our suspect you're a criminal, they can get a warrant if some informant says he saw a verbottengun on your property.

    Think of it this way. Where I live plenty of people are growing pot and smoking it (not that *I* ever inhale). Illegal, yes. But nobody gets arrested. Instead, the feds use it as a pretext to get access to persons and property they want access to.

    So no armies of federales. Just a slow steady drumbeat of doom.

    Wishful thinking--they already do in places in the U.S. where firearms/certain kinds of firearms are illegal.

    I honestly don't know. I'd like to think I'd go down in some heroic blaze of glory, but you never really know until the time comes. I know I wish my home was defensible.

    What good is it going to do, though, if they just pick us all (or as many as they want of us) off, one by one -- if we "all hang separately" in effect?

    The big question is how resistance on a mass, organized, intelligently coordinated and led scale could be stirred up.

    There's an old saying about that.

    If its time to bury them, then its time to dig them up.

    I'm 58 now. My children are grown. I don't want to go to a nursing home. I will probably have some lead time in the above captioned scenario. Other than that, I won't speculate.

    There are more of us than they. If they lose a member everytime around, they lose. :fire:

    Tom Brokaw: The death toll of government agents killed while enforcing the recent gun ban has reached 8,612. This just one month into a national operation which calls for citizens to surrender their firearms.

    Hmmm. One month? 90 million gun owners? Say nothing of militias forming and lone gunman hunting politicians...this is a modest estimate. :evil:
