Expect Civil Disobedience if Politicians Try to Undermine the Second Amendment

The noise in congress about banning 'assault rifles' and magazines is just that - noise. The Feinstein crowd knows that such a ban will never even get passed in the senate. But, the threat to attempt such a ban could cause enough reps and senators to compromise and accept universal registration of all firearms, which would ultimately lead to the death of the 2nd amendment. Once Obama replaces 1 conservative on the Supreme Court, he will do his executive order thing (likely after declaring a 'national emergency'), and banish all firearms. Law enforcement will not come knocking on our doors.

no Executive Order can involuntarily take away my guns,nor yours.
they are simply policy directions for Federal agencies,they are NOT "law".
Besides,FEDGOV does not know who has guns. not even the States know of every gun owner.
First they would have to visit every FFL and take their Form 4473 's to find out who bought guns.
Hopefully,before many FFLs gave them up,the rest would learn of it and have accidental "fires" that destroy all their 4473's.

Anyone not turning in their firearms will be fined a substantial amount (say $10,000 annually per weapon), and those 16,000 brand new IRS agents will have something to do – attach checking and savings accounts, seize real estate, and so on. It will be very difficult to protect bank accounts with our AR-15s. So the civil disobedience will have to come at the very start – do not register.

thats right. Obama is scary and everybody knows it. He does screw up and now they are really watching him close. He is one good mess up from losing his office.

I periodically share public opinion data, either because I’m encouraged by the results or because I think that the research helps show how to frame issues.

Examples include polling data on personal retirement accounts, the dangers of big government, support for spending caps, and viability of class warfare tax policy.

But I’ve been very narrowly focused. Just about all the polls I’ve shared have been about some...
