    They do it every day. All bans do is expand the black market.

    The point is, nothing matters if it does. We won't beat the government. And our military can handle anything that comes. You'd be more relevant if you dealt with more likely problems.

    And a defeatist attitude to go with it. Ah yes, humans are just screwed, if you are not part of the ruling elite, and the ruling elite determine you need to be wiped off the earth, just deal with it, your time is up. So silly.

    You realize our military is comprised of citizens, with families that are citizens?

    In my time in the military I never met one person that would follow an unlawful order to go after the citizens of this country. Not one.

    If you were a politician and you were thinking about banning guns and supporting a law that would require the jailing of any person who refused to turn in a gun and you just heard that the 10 sponsors of the bill had just had their heads evaporated what would you do?

    Evaporating people's heads is murder. They go to jail. The law wouldn't stand, and the murders will go to jail.

    that would beat the government if those who wanted the law became too afraid to support it

    that is what the second amendment is about

    Hell, you can do that by voting hem out, and you jump to killing them? And you don't see the trouble with your thinking? And you think killing people over a law you can overturn is a just act?

    you didn't read very well-I was talking about a law that would jail people for merely owning a gun that might have been in the family for decades. gun confiscation would justify rebellion
