    For some reason I think if the government banned a basic constitutional inalienable right that he is a proponent or adovcate of he wouldn't be using the "......because of laws you don't like" line.

    I tend to think so myself. Even if I didn't agree with the BOR in one fashion or another I would still be an advocate for keeping those I didn't like intact for I know that if any one falls the rest are up for grabs. As well I follow the mentality that the founding fathers were incredibly intelligent men and very much ahead of their time and in some ways ahead of ours as well.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Demand full payment at pre-ban retail value for all firearms prior to turning them in. It's a fun hobby, but not worth any sort of legal trouble (I only use them for target practice and as historical relics [WWII guns, main rifle for each participant]). I'm not in a situation where I can imagine needing one for self-defense. I wouldn't, however, take a full loss on the value of the guns, as I'd be taking a significant $ beatdown...

    Did the Britons pay people for their firearms when they enacted a ban?

    I'd say that a good majority of us are still "gun-lovers".
    I prefer women....and then mankind.
    Guns should stay in our past.

    If they do this, I hope there is a revolution. Taking our gun rights away would show just how out of touch our politicians have gotten.

    Clearly our founding fathers felt strongly enough to make it unmistakeable: "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

    Only if we have guaranteed protection against the uprisal of monarchies, dictatorships, or any other oppressive type government that so desperately wants to be in power. Can you head this effort up and make it happen?

    How could we go violent revolution if they take away our guns?!

    JK, I know people would still have guns, but I don't think this would be worth violent revolution. This may hurt my libertarian credentials, but here goes... I think some amendments rank higher in terms of the "violent revolution" scale. Second amendment is obviously important, but I'd be more likely to go violent if they repealed the first, fourth or fifth. Not that all of them aren't important of course! Love my constitution!

    If they repeal the 2nd, what would stop them from repealing the 1st, 4th or 5th?

    Under the DCMA, freedom of speech is severely curtailed due to the threat of educators, programmers, and other groups being threatened with cease and desist letters. (source) So far no outrage from people regarding the loss of the First Amendment. The Fourth and Fifth Amendment has been eviscerated under Patriot Act, Patriot Act II, the new military appropriations bill, and other laws that override the Fourth and Fifth Amendments. Not surprisingly there's no outcry from the American people. I doubt that anything will happen if the Second Amendment gets the axe and people are rounded up as 'terrorists' into concentration camps. Such is what history has shown.
