Once again, the premise for the thread was that newly elected Kerry had just passed AWBII, and was in the process of confiscating military SA rifles. Not silly at all, such an action would be declared constitutional, by simply resurrecting Clinton's theory that the Second Amendment only referred to the National Guard. Remember that one? Get the 9th circuit or SCOTUS to issue a ruling that backs up this narrow legal thesis, and theroetically any and every gun could be legally confiscated from normal civilians. Perfectly legal and consistent; no 2nd amendment problem whatsoever. One presumes that the "regular people" (hahaha) would be first in line to hand in their guns, then back at the keyboard to tell everyone how they complied with the rule of law. Exhorting folks to get busy making political signs, continue to critiicise other who would actively resist the new law (i.e., "armchair commandos" lol) For those who have condemned any active civil disobedience, please tell us how effective the "regular people" in Australia or the UK have been, with their polite political activism.
