    When you consider the fact that the police officers would be acting in violation of the Constitution and the sacred oath they swore to uphold and defend it, they would nolonger be enforcers of law, but armed perpetraters in the commission of a crime__ie; criminals.

    Now there's a deliciously "slightly liberal" response. Thank you, molten_dragon.

    I imagine a straight "liberal" person would do the same as you, but go one step further and try to talk conservatives into giving up as well. I suspect the "very liberal" group would also try and talk conservatives out of opposition, or just resort to violence to help preserve government control.

    I just dont think there will ever be a scenario where the 2nd amendment is repealed. I think the great majority of thinking rational intelligent human beings...even those who hate guns...realize that once the Bill of Rights is altered, the very next one to go might be one they actually give a **** about. I doubt they would support it and without the amendment process engaged it isnt going to happen. Unless of course the country reaches some point of mass crisis where they outright suspend the entire constitution.

    But if politicians should ever decide to demonstrate an effective means of banning firearms by finding a way to actually go after criminals and firearms, well...they should have at it.

    Most liberals are more concerned about the matrimonial rights of homosexuals than the constitutional rights of all.

    The left has a serious lack of judgement concerning priorities__With voters like this it's no wonder we're in such a mess.

    Sadly, this is probably the most honest post in the entire thread.

    There is no need to repeal the second amendment, when it can just be whittled down, watered down, and deformed just a little bit at a time, until it is, in essence, meaningless. It's te same way most societal strengths are degraded over time.

    And the 11 oclock news will report; "a crazed right-wing radical extremist was killed today by police officers whose lives he was threatening for attempting to perform their lawful duties while bystanders cowered in fear for their safety"

    Considering the fact police are an arm of the government they are a legitimate target just as much as those running the country are should the government become tyrannical.Because those who make and write the laws are going to be using law enforcement and military to help enforce it's tyranny,therefore that makes them legitimate targets should those in law enforcement and military decided to stay and enforce the government's tyranny.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    There was an example in another thread about a sheriff that said in a press conference he wanted all guns banned and retroactively collected. The beat officers all pretty much said something along the lines of "let him go get his own ass shot off if he wants them that bad, we won't do it".
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Well if they decide to ban bullets instead of guns or ban semi automatics and leave us with muzzle loaders it's basically the same act as banning guns so my answer is the same violent revolution.

    Though the government could definately justify themselves more if they went with the above route and say we haven't banned arms at all. Hopefully this will never happen but politicians are vile sleezebags.
