Join a violent revolution
Start a National Petition to repeal the act
Move out the Country
Go on with my life and comply with the new law

Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
It would have to take something pretty serious to make me want to join a revolution. Without due process, by just banning guns at a whim, I think it'd be safe to assume the worst and combat the tyranny.
I'd like to see how the OP would suggest "America" could simply "ban" the 2nd Amendment.
Does he mean by Presidential Executive Order? Some sort of extra-Constitutional power-grab by the Senate?
this poll is more appropriate for a parallel-universe kinda scenario, and it really does nothing more but enable the paranoid fantasies of right-wing extremists, fearful of a fascist dictatorship in the USA doing all sorts of things that are pretty much impossible, in our current universe.

Not at all imagine a president and congress that would seek to pass another ammendment or act to ban arms in the name of security it's that easy. They did it with the 4th Amendment with the Patriot Act they could do it with the 2nd Amendment. Also the Supreme Court with enough justices who believe the same way could easily define it a different way and say only police should have arms.
"Rome is the mob. Conjure magic for them and they’ll be distracted. Take away their freedom and still they’ll roar. The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the senate, it’s the sand of the coliseum. He’ll bring them death – and they will love him for it.” - Senator Gracchus (Gladiator)
And if they pass gun-rules the people do not support, they can put new folks into office to undo their actions.
There is no rational, logical, nor reasonable reason to immediately resort to violence to redress such a thing..unless one is simply looking to start **** and kill people.
But again, this thread simply enables the paranoid fantasies of right-wing extremists.
