Leftist Fantasizes About Gun Confiscation…
Over at WRSA, a recent post indicates one particular leftist believes door to door gun confiscation would be ‘relatively uneventful’ if started.
One commenter (from the UK) posited that he/she agreed (don’t know if the commenter is male or female) because, well, ‘Americans are all talk as evidenced by what he sees on blogs’ (implication of the commenter). This commenter figures only 1 in 10,000 might resist such a move.
Gee…this guy couldn’t possibly be someone trying to instigate someone to do something could he? Troll? Paid Troll? Paid troll by parties unknown who’d love to see a blood bath in the US?
Let’s look at some numbers, shall we?
Gun Owners in the US: Let’s say only 10 percent of Americans own guns. That’d be well over 30,000,000. Let’s say that 10% of that number are very, very serious about their natural right of self-defense against any threat. That’s 3,000,000. Let’s divide that in half, for the sake of conservative scientific wild ass guessing.
1,500,000 gun owners with untold amounts of ammunition and several weapons each.
Let’s be really conservative and divide that number equally among the 50 states.
30,000 gun owners per state that refuse to have their weapons confiscated. Let that number sink in. That’s the equivalent man power wise of 3 military divisions.
Trained? No (for the most part).
Can these people be counted on to do something besides sit cowering in their homes waiting for a confiscation crew to show up? Definitely. There’d be so much bloodshed on all sides that the situation could descend into a civil war very quickly, and nobody sane wants that. We still manage our differences without that literal hell.
There’s something that would have to happen before gun confiscation attempts occurred, though. Martial Law. Martial law requires a compliant population to work, because the ruling authority can’t go from zero to ‘deadly force’ immediately without an immediate and unintended consequence from the populace: Guerilla war. Why? Standard fight logic: If there’s no way out of a terrible ass whipping, people figure they might as well get in a couple of hits themselves before they go down. Now add into the mix that the people enforcing martial law live against their neighbors in the same community that’s having martial law enforced upon it. How do you think that will play out? Go to work to confiscate guns and possibly shoot people who don’t comply while leaving your family home in ‘Indian Country.’ That makes sense. Everything will be fine. Here’s some reality: There’s not enough active duty military, national guard, reserves, federal, state, and local law enforcement to protect the families of the confiscation crews across the country and protect the borders, fight the wars, and administer martial law simultaneously.
These leftist (read ‘communist’) fantasies get old. Didn’t the left recently figure out what might happen, albeit on a very small scale, when they fielded the ‘antifa’ (now silent and nearly defunct) ‘militias’ and protest groups that ended up having their asses handed to them? Apparently not. The left would dearly LOVE to see something like the above happen to move the US into a dejure communist run country. Happily, there are too many citizens out there who will not allow that to happen when it comes right down to it.
And as for chicken shit non-US citizens commenting on the level of courage among our citizenry for defending the natural rights codified in the Constitution, DILIGAF?
The children of the left need to keep their fantasies to themselves and let the adults make the decisions. It’s better for everyone involved.
