    I think many of you would be surprised what people will do when pushed.

    The 1 time I was pushed to that point, Illinois has a misdemeanor assault to plea down to from felony aggravated assault.

    People will fight and shoot to defend those rights. I was fortunate in that all I lost was my favorite AK. If pressed like that again, I would do the same.

    No internet bravado here. I imagine I am not the only one.

    Good point. There is a breaking point in either direction for all of us, some people will break towards the fighting side and some will just break down. That's evident enough when you see the bullied person fight the big dog, or when you see the tough guy in a corner crying because he's just had enough. The honest answer is most of us don't have any factors to go on other than SHTF in this hypothetical but there are other things to consider like "is it rebellion or suicide based on the options", "who are the targets and what are their protections", "how good are communications", etc.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I would keep my guns until the gestapo showed up to take them away.

    If that happened ... the way things are going ... I wouldn't be surprised ...

    Why wouldn't something that does not deserve attention be given it?

    For example, I couldn't believe it when people spent their time trying to ban certain words from the dictionary, when there are people dying of starvation and of exposure ... what a way to set priorities aye?

    Somewhere on the forum there should be a list of those who call for killing police officers who enforce laws those members don't like. It'd give a clue of what mentality and ethics of the person you are debating on other topics has.

    It seems that you have a story you want to tell. What is it?

    Not really, hehehe. It was just one of those situations where you have to take matters into your own hands to get justice. In the end I got lucky.

    We are not talking about any old "law" here, we are talking about what many consider a basic inalienable right. The thread is about armed revolution, jeeees.

    As Blackdog put it a outright ban on a basic constitutional inalienable right is not any old law or just simply a law we disagree with. The fact you would see a ban on the second amendment as just any old law and not worthy of a revolt only further proves you are no 2nd amendment proponent or advocate.
    "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"

    Notice he keeps repeating "......because of laws you don't like" as if rights are a popularity contest. I've noticed that this is a phrase that seems to be a go to for multiple posters. I don't play populace games and don't care for emotional arguments, I have noticed though that this phrase seems to be the emotional counter every time the argument is lost by small percentage of posters here.
