#3 Hear hear.
Couldn't say it better, I will NOT gve up my guns, I'm NOT a murderer, and don't want to be murdered by a savage.
.There ARE evil cretins out there, and I'm not one, also I'm NOT going to be Murdered by one, simply because I own something they want.
The last time I had to call a cop, it was 18 Minuites responding, that's about 17 Minutes too long.

#6 I suspect what passes for a gov't today is well aware of what might happen should they attempt any sudden moves on the 2nd Amendment. Death by a thousand cuts appears much more likely.

#7 When DiFi was Mayor of San Francisco, she went on one of her regular anti gun tirades. I called her office and spoke to one of her aides. I pointed out that her assertions were not factual and what she was proposing was against the 2nd Amendment.
The aide stated bluntly that DiFi didn't care about facts or the 2nd Amendment, she wanted our guns. Bitch! We're going to have to open the last box.

#8 I recently drove from AZ to Florida via US10. As I went through Texas Last weekend it was clear to me that all Feinstein's rantings is a wast of time. Two out of the three vehicles that passed me, I was in a rental truck stuck at 60MPH, were full of guns and coolers for hunting. To try and take even a measurable ammount of these weapons will start a war.

#9 Ditty-Move Pan? If so, good luck with your new assignment.

#10 Pan, good observation. And those guys are true hunters. In central Texas, on business in rural areas once, on more than one occasion noticed individuals who lived in the area only a few yards away, well armed, curious as to the nature of my business.
Never heard them coming until I happened to noticed them. I was impressed. They seemed to treat strangers as bad guys, until proven innocent.

#11 Never let anybody tell you that Feinstein is "moderate" compared to Boxer. They are both full on bat shit crazy.

#13 Besoeker, Yup, I'm trying to wear my back out early... I did get pulled over for an ag inspection entering Florida. The cops first question was,"Are you armed?" I handed him my CCP and said yes. He let it go at that and ended his inspection.

#15 Suddenly she was sitting straight up in bed. She had been asleep. The dark was gone. Moonlight streamed through the window hole and streaks of moonlight come through every crack in that wall. Pa stood black in the moonlight at the window. He had his gun.
Right in Laura's ear a wolf howled.

I don't think they get this in California. Must be living in a liberal bubble. As is said: "Molon labe".

#17 I'm truly beginning to believe the left WANTS a civil war. Either they believe they can win it, or they're so eaten up with hatred they just want an excuse to kill.

#18 Until the Anbar Awakening got the locals motivated to join the Surge(tm) and as amply displayed in Afghanistan where the locals are not motivated, just how do these nit wits think they're going to collect over 3 million weapons in private ownership across this country? One of the problems in Iraq and Afghanistan is that the local police have to go home at night among the population. Either they're co-opted or dead. Can't use the National Guard cause they're made up of folks who are generally gun owners themselves. The regular forces are both too few and unreliable once they start doing that crap. Just as likely to shoot/frag some big brass who's just a pol in uniform bellowing orders. The'd quickly lose control outside of the urban areas which is where the power, fuel, food, and water come from. There's not enough manpower to protect all those vulnerable lines of communication to sustain their political bases in the cities. I'm sure they'll have a couple successes, but the first Concord Bridge with their SWAT teams having to fight their way back to safer refuge will be the beginning of the end. They can't imagine Syria happening here. They're that stupid.

#19 I think it's 300 million...

#20 Confirmed, it IS 300Million
That they KNOW OF.

#21 P2K makes good points, but one there are precedents ... the mullah's Palestians have not hesitated to shoot unarmed civilian protesters in Teheran and other Iranian cities, for instance. Susan Rice is all in favor of stationing UN troops in Gaza and the West Bank to force policy matters against Israel - is it possible she and like minded people would take the opportunity to do so here as well?

#22 300 million until nearly 300 million are reported lost at the bottom of a lake, accidentally thrown out in a home remodeling project or stolen.
