We need groups like the NRA to fight the good fight now. We don't want to wait until they are knocking on our doors to confiscate our guns. Long before then they will take the guns and ammos off the store shelves and close down the gun ranges or just make it too expensive to shoot and hunt with more and more taxes and restrictions on shooters until our ranks are so small we don't matter anymore. The left doesn't take our freedom away in one swoop. They take it away incrementally. That is how the left takes all our freedoms away.
I can only speek for myself on your question. In my case, I would either be dead, in jail or would have won the fight to keep my guns.
What would our gun rights be if every gun owner said NO and physically faught to keep them?
I agree 100% with Mark..
eventually they would run out of cops or whoever would be trying to take them away from us, I am almost sure most of the law enforcement would not want to risk their life everytime they knocked on a door to take your firearms.
Mark you will not be alone that is one real thing many quite ones will show up by the millions stand side by side and we will keep for ever the 2nd and the right to bear arms so gun owners stand up for the rights that was fought for and keep America what we are we are the home of the free and the brave,
I was talking to one of my township cops, we have 3 of them a few months ago about this confiscation issue if it ever arises. His response was he would quit before he would attempt to go door to door. You don't know whats behind door #1 #2 or #3
Talk all of the smack you want, boys. Bottom line is this...we need to be heard. Write your elected representatives. Join the NRA. They are our collective national voice. Have your shooting friends join. Buy somebody a membership as a gift. Take some kid shooting, and maybe invite his or her non-shooting dad along. We need to represent ourselves as responsible, everyday Americans. The testosterone fueled rants about armed response are nice to bolster our egos, but politicians won't pay any attention to it. They WILL pay attention if they hear from enough of us. Reagan had a democrat majority in Congress for both of his terms. When he wanted something done, he went to us, the American people, and urged us to get involved. Let's make ourselves heard.
If we fail at that level, then I'll join you for the revolt. I'm getting older, but I still have some testosterone running around in here :>)
Folks,we are a small bunch anymore.Look at the kids today most could give a rats ass less about hunting.Our school system here removed all hunting publications from the library.Kids of today sure don't go rabbit hunting after school like they use to.They are too #am lazy.I live in a rural area,farm country.So when we are gone who is going to stand up for our rights?
Take a kid hunting,get the kids interested in guns.This is our only hope.
That's where I was headed as well 687. You don't need to be foolish and tip your hand to be a true american. Kind of like the people that peacock their ccw ... they give up the main tactical advantage of the ccw by doing so. Think with the big head.
But lets just think about the numbers, some 48% percent of the exit poll voters lived in a house that had firearms. So were talking at least 50 million homes with guns. If a door to door gun grab came along and just 1% of the armed households took the hard line, we are looking at at least a million casualties. It just ain't going to happen that way. So why make yourself and your family a target in the mean time. Play your cards close and you probably won't have to show what you are holding, tip your hand early and you won't have anything left to show.
