Or better yet a Revolution, because most of our trained military would side with the Americans supporting the second ammendment so if the president and congress wanted to fight they would need to hire help from the outside.

Foreign military on American soil? Mercs? Either one would bring a seriously big fight from the vets and civilians along with LEOs and soldiers that take their oath to heart!

Lord i hope that day never comes. As a LEO and staunch 2nd amendment supporter i'd hate to be in a position where i have to take someones weapons who is a law abiding citizen.

Heck even the Swiss who are neutral have ridles in their homes! Anyone who served in Swiss Army continues to remain armed.

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I don't believe our military that's suppose to protect us would ever bring the battle to our homes. The government would def need firepower because I could only imagine the first home they try to take would be a shoot out.

Would they have a massive search warrant to search people's homes ? Or just ban guns and if your caught with it youd be arrested. first I'd tell em I don't have any and if they came in I'd open fire on their asses.

It would not work. There would not be enough LE personal to enforce it since the vast majority of LE's are conservative, freedom loving patriots.

Wrong Answer! The Oath you took(Or at least should have) was to Uphold and Protect the Constitution of your State and or the US Constitution. In MY State as well as My Country that would be a Violation of both Constitutions! As a Law Enforcement Officer or when I was a Marine I would Never Violate the Constitution or Follow Unconstitutional Orders!

The Connecticut Constitution (Article First, § 15) gives every citizen the right to bear arms in defense of himself and the state.

Either that or the LE academy's would have a rush of new recruits just to keep their firearms!

When Guns are Outlawed, Only Outlaws will have Guns.
My Grandfather owned a hardware store and sold long guns and hand guns, the bumper sticker that was on the bottom of the display glass read the above statement.
I feel that they will never outlaw the guns and if they do you can rest assured there ain't enough room in the jails for all of us.
I feel if anything they would start by cutting off supplies in order to make the guns useless, like primer shortages, powder shortages, etc, etc, etc.

Hmmm rising ammo costs, shortages, limited quality available? I used to think it couldn't happen, but niw I feel there is definately the possibility of something is coming down the pipe.

Somebody famous said, paraphrased, all that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. I'm not going to "do nothing.". The only way this could ever happen would be a total destruction of our Constitutional democracy. Yeah, people in some states, CA, NY, IL, have ALLOWED freedoms to be taken from them. Ok, if it's that important to you, move. We don't allow that in MO, nor did we in KY.

Not building a silo here. Write your Congressman, and vote.

Oh wow Bammustafa....you opened the floodgates now! Asking a gun forum a question like that is like asking an alcoholic what he would do if they brought back prohibition. ;)

But since you asked....

I agree with all of the replies thus far. To sum up my stand, I would say I'd die with my boots on.

But before that day I would do what I've already done. GET INVOLVED locally and federally to preserve our 2nd Amend rights! Write ur congressmen and senators, and yes, even the president! Volunteer locally with shoots, hunters ed programs, etc... Join the NRA, and all the other organizations fighting for our freedoms.

A lot we can do to preserve what we have before the standoff in the doorway of our homes.

The Government can't abolish amendments. Article V of the U.S. Constitution requires Congress/Senate to propose an amendment to repeal an existing amendment, the proposed amendment must pass by 2/3 majority. The proposed amendment, if it passes, must be ratified by 3/4 of the states to become law & repeal an existing amendment.

In the last four years over 2/3 of passed legislation on the Federal level has been the naming of Post Offices, & Government facilities. That's about all they can agree on. So, even though we're pretty secure with the 2nd amendment staying intact & healthy. It is rather vexing that all congress seems to be able to do to earn their six figure incomes is the naming of things.

The question is, would you? Or would you live up to the oath you took?

Wrong Answer! The Oath you took(Or at least should have) was to Uphold and Protect the Constitution of your State and or the US Constitution.

Exactly! I've taken that oath more than once, starting with the Navy, and there's no way.

Even if it ever made it past the 2/3 requirement, I don't think there's much that we could actually get 3/4 of the states to agree on. It's like all the promises made by the presidential candidates about Amendments regarding balanced budgets, marriage definition, etc. It'll never happen, no matter how much promising they do. :rolleyes:

Similarly, the UN Arms Treaty that keeps getting bandied about as a reason to take our guns, will never get ratified by the Senate. There are enough pro-gun Dems to keep that from happening.

Ironically, if the attempt was made to abolish the Second Amendment, we would see the sudden appearance of a huge, well-armed civilian militia whose duty it would be to protect our freedoms under the Constitution. Count me in.
