would you give up your guns?

just a hypothetical question to see how many would really say, "over my dead body." if the government came today to confiscate all your guns as part of the new "anti-guns laws" would you...

A) hand them over without a fight thus preventing any prosecution/jailtime/etc

B) meet them at the door with your gun cocked and ready to go down firing.

had this discussion with my grandpa the other day, he swears they'll have to kill him if they want his guns. he refuses to give in to his second amendment rights.

Agreed. I wouldn't have them cocked or loaded like you said. They are the messengers, they could be like us and not want to give theirs up either but have to. I'm not saying there would be incidents with people if said situation happened but more less people would comply when push comes to shove. Then legally battle it out.

I'm not worried...cuz something like that will never happen. In fact, that'd be the worst thing they could possibly do. The black market would explode and they've had more problems on their hands than the entire drug wars they're trying to fight.

I'm not that attached to my guns. But - they'd better compensate me for taking my hard earned money that I used to buy my stuff. Ain't nothing for free unless I want to give it for free.

Do you have anything you would like to give me for free? I'll make a trip down to Lancaster from Wilkes-Barre.

I live in Vermont, which has more guns per capita than even Texas. (Also more per capita serving in the military but that's another thread.)

But the question is bogus, the sort of thing the Dan Rather School of Sensationalism would ask customers in a Bed Bath and Beyond store. Why all this posturing over something that will never happen? Politicians are, afterall, self-serving cowards for the most part, and such a stand would be political suicide.

Have you heard of Oath Keepers. It is an org. made up of currently serving police and military. This is copied from their home page:

Oath Keepers is a non-partisan association of currently serving military, reserves, National Guard, veterans, Peace Officers, and Fire Fighters who will fulfill the Oath we swore, with the support of like minded citizens who take an Oath to stand with us, to support and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, so help us God. Our Oath is to the Constitution
Our motto is "Not on our watch!"

So if our "leaders" do someday try to pull such a foolish stunt, I believe that many Oath Keepers will object and then who would they get to perform such a foul, anti-American task?

I think their methods would first be MORE brainwashing (BS global warming-like) and then require people to peacefully turn in their guns. Sadly many sheeple would comply.

Today the average citizen, no matter how well armed, doesn't have a chance againt the police or military if they really want to come and take anything from us. The 2nd ammendment is not about hunting or even self protection from criminals. It is, and always was meant to be, about protecting the citizens from a government overstepping its bounds...What else would men who just rebelled, and won, against a tyrannical government want to ensure for future generations. Surely not that they would always have guns for hunting !!

We must educate ourselves about the real past of America, not what gov controlled schools and media feed us. Learn your rights, teach them to your children, call upon God for his divine assistance and stand up for the rights we still currently have. Many have fought and died for the rights we still enjoy. All Americans who still believe in those rights and freedoms must be willing to sacrifice to perserve them for future generations.

Soapbox mode off.....

I agree that this would not happen... Not through a knock on the door. It is much more likely that new guns sales could be legislated away and then registration of existing guns, then only handguns required to be turned in to authorities. Then "assault weapons", including all semi autos over time. They would never take our single shot, break action shotguns, everyone knows those are only for hunting.

I won't hand over any of mine. I don't think I will have to go down shooting, just hide them better and make some bills of sale.

This is the crux of the matter. Read it well, understand and take action. The longer the current cesspool of politicians is in office, the uglier it will get when they do come for the rest of our rights. Republicans and Democrats alike are corrupted by the offices they hold and must be replaced regularly.

Big 'ol Louisiana Ditto's on that brother. Anyone who wouldn't go down to protect the constitution that the current leadership in this country is bastardizing should go to europe. Many great men and women have laid down their lives to protect that precious document and what it stands for. We now have elected someone who is tryin and so far suceeding in tearing it apart. Come get me I will be waiting in full body armor. I am a citizen not a subject and I am keeping my guns.

As someone not from the us

As i am Canadian maybe i have no right to speak here. but as an outsider it is easy to see why Americans are getting such a bad reputation around the world.
all you hear about your country is complaints this gun issue is so red neck and gun play and concealed carry is making this whole country a shit hole third world .
I was at a party last nite with some very high ranking people in my community (lots of cash) why i was there i do not know.
anyways someone started talking about travel to the US this summer with their small children. people are too afraid to even go to Disneyland.
I was amazed at all the people who got involved in this conversation and believe me most of the things that were said about the US was like they where talking about some war torn 3rd level country not the great USA that i grew up to love and respect.

The country is broke there are race wars all over the streets. people packing and selling drugs and guns everywhere. The cities are getting dirty and i could not find one person at that party last nite that said they would vacation in the USA in the next 5 years.

I think you have far bigger problem than just guns.
You have had the right to carry guns for many many years, are your streets safer now or your homes no of course not now the streets and crime is all over and everyone wants to pack a gun . kill kill kill everything that moves thats good old redneck thinking.

It is really sad to see the one time best country in the world has fallen so far so fast.

Maybe it is time to throw out all the guns in the us and join the world instead of always trying to be the world police and old western tough guys packing a gun.

In Canada we may not have guns but we have jobs and people living in there homes. The streets are clean in most part and we can still walk on our safe streets.

But all i see here is i need a gun for protection i need to carry a gun in my truck i need a gun to go camping or brother what a sad time you all live in.

the hate in your fellow country men will kill your country.

GOD BLESS America but also please bless the rest of us to

I would absolutly give up my guns! They are Horrible, loud, oilly things. All they do is hurt people, and propperty. The only reason I have so many is to keep them off the streets. Being as they kill people, I keep their actions heavilly monitored at all times. Some, i keep very close by, being as they are the most dangerous, and must be watched 24/7. I keep some of them loaded, but thats just because I dont have any place to put the ammo, and I dont want to just throw it away...I mean....What if another gun happend to be walking by, saw the ammo, and took it? I dont want that on my shoulders........
