    Re: Would You Resist Federal Confiscation?

    I might be bias as I don't have a gun... but my life is worth much more than a gun. I don't think confiscation would be fair, nor do I think it would ever happen... but I would not resist.

    Now if they want to take more of my hard earned money or hamper my other rights then I'd resist. As I said, I don't own a gun so they aren't a big deal to me. When I buy one my opinion will likely change.

    Hmmmm at the right time? So it is subjective, I see.
    A supreme court with judges full of those who interpret the constitutional literally will rule anti-2nd amendment laws to be unconstitutional.

    Not true at all. Some would say it goes right to the ownership of property. Since I own my body and I am not infringing on someone else's rights by smoking crack, it is unconstitutional.
    Since I am not infringing on anyone's else's rights then I can own anything I want?

    See this is the mistake zealots make. Our rights have been restricted since day one.
    We know rights have been restricted it still does not make those restrictions constitutional.

    As society changes and it's needs change, so do the laws, and in some cases rights.
    The need to defend against a tyrannical government is just as important today as it was over 200 years ago when the 2nd amendment was written. It doesn't matter if the military back then used cannons,black powder muskets,primitive rockets and grenades,bombs and while today we have machine guns,more complex rockets and better grenades and bombs or if one day someone invents hand held solar powered laser pistol.



    I mean lets look at the real picture here.

    Without the threat of force to back up and protect perceived rights, do we really have them?
    Seems all the more reason why the government has no business restricting 2nd amendment rights so that the people have the force to protect rights.
    "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"

    If the government came in and took firearms, how would you resist them taking away your other rights?

    What would be the point of that? If the Constitution were so amended, it would prove that constitutions are useless instruments for guiding government action.

    I don't personally own any firearms.

    But if I did, I would resist.

    Not sure exactly how.

    Perhaps hide the weapons and report them stolen?

    I'll have to think about this...

    Do you really think the government only respects your rights because you own a gun?

    The ballot box or the cartridge box,.... the government knows that we know the history and the score.

    Me personally? No. But millions of armed citizens......you betcha.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
