1. You are not actually going to do it. You are not going to rebel. You are not going to shoot your wife's best friends police husband. Not a single officer was shot during the Katrina gun confiscation, a confiscation that fit the very premise of the gun rights advocates idea of an oppressive gun confiscation. They went door to door, and people gladly handed them over. No one even rebelled when their firearms were being physically
held in damagingly humid storage facilities.
revolution is a legal use if you are an American.
2. Any talk of revolution, oppression, some sort of oppressive government take over is far fetched and makes us all look bad. I certainly do not own AR-15's for fighting tanks, I own them for legitimate, legal uses.
tell that to the Afghans, or the Vietcong
3. Any talk of such a revolution being successful is far fetched. The worst case scenario is the entire government turning on its people, your little sporting rifle would be up against vastly superior firepower. Some rag tag groups of military joining you are unlikely.
yeah because they know who we are and see us coming? because we walk in uniform and in formation? I think you assume to much, and generalize to much. I am not confident all the military would "follow orders" and kill their own friends and family. Gen. Lee isn't the only Westpoint life long career soldier who would refuse to fight his own people, even when asked by senior command to lead the entire army.
The US eventually neutered the rebellions in Iraq and Afghanistan, all the while maintaining minimal causalities. To the hundreds of thousands of citizens and supposed terrorists killed, the US lost what? 10,000? Those are not good odds. Very good possibility that you, your family, and rebelling friends would be killed before inflicting substantial damage to the enemy. Why not rebel now? At this moment? I think I know the reason, because there is no benefit in doing so.
sorry we value the 1st as much as the 2nd in these parts.
So in conclusion, just stop. You make us all look bad for nothing more than a Red Dawn fantasy.
I don't mean to flame, its just that those arguments irk me beyond words.
I'd suggest you not come to this forum if you are so upset by other people's free speech.
