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
Other - state opinion below
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
The number of people stating they would start/join a violent revolution is the primary reason justifying limiting the killing power and destructive force citizens should be allowed to have. In other polls an alarming number of people stated they would murder any politician they believed were passing a law that violated what they see as their constitutional rights.
There are so many irrational and violently dangerous and reactionary people in this country that the ability of anyone to have weapons to kill mass numbers of people or to engage in war or civil war against the government must be severely limited.
People who claim they will kill government officials that see as violating some right they have are exorbitantly irrational and dangerous. Fortunately most are just blow hards. Unfortunately a few are not.
As to the specific question, I would turn in what firearms I have that the government knows about. I would hide a few of those they did not. I would shift to having for personal use the most effective non-lethal weapons allowed under law.
The language I've seen states that this is a last resort scenario, which is perfectly in line with the founding of this country. Whether some have the stomach for that or not is immaterial, tyrants do tend to get murdered, ask Ghaddafi.In other polls an alarming number of people stated they would murder any politician they believed were passing a law that violated what they see as their constitutional rights.
This is all speculative based on emotion. I could state that it is equally irrational to do nothing and allow your rights to be stripped, it's also irrational to allow those who desire power to expand it at the country's expense. However situations are what they are regardless of reasoning and emotion. You either defend your rights with the appropriate means or you let them slip, there is no third outcome.There are so many irrational and violently dangerous and reactionary people in this country that the ability of anyone to have weapons to kill mass numbers of people or to engage in war or civil war against the government must be severely limited.
You are basically repeating the emotional argument. Some people may in fact want the worst of the worst dead, the goal is to stop threats to freedom and liberty, and the greatest percentage want to do it through civil means. Of course that only matters as long as civil recourse still exists.People who claim they will kill government officials that see as violating some right they have are exorbitantly irrational and dangerous. Fortunately most are just blow hards. Unfortunately a few are not.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
Things would probably, unfortunately, get messy.
Wake up, take a ****, brush my teeth, take a shower, let the dog out, grab some breakfast, go to work, do some work, go to lunch, eat my lunch, maybe take another **** after lunch if I had too much dairy, go back to work, finish work, leave work, go pick up my son at daycare, come hoe, let the dog out, feed my son, change his diaper, make dinner, eat dinner, put my son to bed, watch some TV, maybe take one final **** and go to bed.

"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"
