    No ones asking you to do anything. But I would think that you should be smart enough to figure out how to hide something where you wont go to prison over it. And shooting a cop/soldier wouldnt do anything but get you killed not to mention the moral ground on that issue.

    That's funny, I did my 12 years and 8 of those were in the RA.

    Resistance will be in the form of legal maneuvering, not violence, but if push came to shove, were there a gun ban, you wouldn't pull the trigger. You know it, I know it. You won't do it.
    You're right. I have no desire to spend the rest of my life in prison. I'd like to be all tough and say that I'd keep them, screw the law, but knowing me, I'd probably just comply. I'd look at them meanly though.

    Big difference between banning the new sales of certain guns and taking them away from people who already own them. Even a new ban on new sales wouldn't cause much of an problem. But when you start talking about taking existing ones away, that is a whole different ball of wax. One of the few guns that I am looking at buying (need the money first) was banned in '87. I can still buy it because it still exists and the ban was on new sales.

    Would we all lose in a civil war? Sure, but if the government starts going Ex Post Facto on us, we have all lost already.

    All I did was answer your question.

    Re: Would You Give Up Your Guns?

    It would really depend for me on what the penalties for not complying were. If they were relatively minor, I'd turn most in, and take my chances hiding a couple of long guns somewhere. After all, the police aren't going to have the time or manpower to do detailed searches of every gun owner in America's homes.

    If it were something draconian like life in prison or the death penalty, I'd turn them in and move out of the country to somewhere that still allows gun ownership.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Respectfully, no. I have the right to bear arms. The right to defend myself, my family, and my property whether from craven criminal or oppressive government.

    I'd say that there is a one in a hundred thousand chance that any sane man would "give up" his gun ownership.
    And this is the last thing that "non-gun lovers" want....
    All we want is decent control and no more assault weapons for the man on the street....period.....
    We, like the conservatives , do have our fringers, our extremists....they merit being ignored.

    No I would not. Such a law would turn me from an active participant to an active underminer of my own society.

    I'm tossing the bull**** flag on everyone who says they wouldn't comply. No shots were fired in 1987, they were registered, people complied, and so will you. I've seen how civilians react when there's a couple gun trucks with .50cal machine guns parked outside their house. When offered the hand-out or the bullet, civilians take the hand-out every time. You're all full of ****. America has already lost because America has accepted the government hand-out. So have the States. Internet tough-guys you will cave to the almighty hand-out in the end.
