    Personally if this happened I wouldn't consider it America anymore, so I'd probably go with violent revolution.

    Same as what I did today. Go to work. I would LOVE to see the Federal government try to enforce the repealing of the 2nd Amendment. Probably cause a coup.

    .... I'd tell America that we should sit down and talk about this like sensible adults. America can't do whatever she wants. You know, because America is not even 250 years old yet. She can't do as she please. First she bans guns, then what? She'll start smoking weed, hanging out with North Korea and as we all know, it's all down hill from there. No, America can't do whatever she wants so we'll just all have an intervention if she ever decides to just up and ban the 2nd amendment.

    Sounds like some "tough love" is in order.

    Everyone always speaks big on this issue but they have been restricting it when they have no authority to do so for decades and which one of them did anything about it? A big fat none. I can't just say I will revolt because no one will ****ing join me! It will be a party of one getting shot in the street.

    I'd lol, because I think Americans are already revolting.

    Right now? Who? The OWS? They are just helpful idiots that don't understand capitalism, economics, money, or the problems that exist in the country. I don't need that kind of help.

    I think spud thinking that Americans are revolting has less to do with the OWS and more to do with the quality of women he cruises for at the Walmarts.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I would sit back with some hot-wings and watch them try to enforce it.

    In all seriousness, though, if the US successfully banned personal firearms, and there was no real hope of getting them back, I would become a citizen of Israel and renounce my US citizenship.

    Re: If America banned the Second Ammendment tomorrow what would you do?

    I voted that i would go on with my life.

    If we banned the Second Amendment - which I DO NOT favor doing - it would be done via another Constitutional Amendment. To pass one would require support of an overwhelming number in both houses in Congress - 2/3 - plus the legislatures of 3/4 of the states. That could not be done without large and significant support from the citizenry. This would be impossible now. However, if the winds changed and it was possible, I would then have a choice to live in America with all its great things or leave. And I would simply accept the will of the people and make due the best I could.

    By nature, I am not a violent person and to participate in a violent revolution would require a whole lot more than that for me to join in.
