It’ll be ugly, it’ll be messy and it sure as heck will be bloody. Let’s hope they don’t lose their minds to the point of attempting confiscation...
Powerful electromagnets and lots of 000 buckshot in the air?We might get blindsided by some newfangled strategy, like “swarm-bots”. How we would fight those little monsters, I don’t know.
All patriots would take it as their duty to resist and fire on any occupying force, including Blue Helmets stationed here "for our own good". It would be an interesting time. It would be interesting to see how the UN would finance such military action without US monetary support.US Agency's won't be the ones to do the work.... By that time Blue Helmets would be in country.
Now imagine how many *would* fire back on an obvious occupying force...
I'd like to see the stats on violent crime AND victimisation by RACE. I suspect that if certain minority groups are taken from the over-all statistics, the violent crime rate would drop substantially. Seems like a study touching on some of this was done recently, but I don't have it on my fingertips...Not sure it is the same chart but the data should be the same. Anyway, this covers the 1900 - 1999 and shows a low around 1958-60ish: Homicide and Suicide in America, 1900-1998 | Hacienda Publishing
And this covers 1960-2017 (but has some Anti crap embedded, be forewarned): The U.S. Murder Rate Is Up But Still Far Below Its 1980 Peak It shows that we are at historically low murder rates -- equal to the low in 1960.
EDIT: subtracting Chicago, Baltimore, and other crime-ridden localities, I wonder what the murder rate would look like for the rest of the country.
EDIT2: Clearly this link is trying to put an Anti spin on the data, but by their own calculation, excluding Chicago, Detroit, Washington D.C. and New Orleans, would drop the murder rate in 2015 from 4.9 to 4.6/100k. Adding Baltimore, Oakland, and St. Louis to the exclusion list drops the rate to 4.4/100k. What Is The Murder Rate If We Exclude Cities Like Chicago? - The Meme Policeman
Thank You, that is what I was looking for.Not the US because we haven't tried that experiment (yet), but the UK has:
In 1920 the English Right to Firearms was essentially ended and then in the ensuing decades, gun laws became increasingly draconian. In 1920, the assault rate was 2.39/100k. In 1999 the assault rate had risen to 419.28/100k. That's a 17,543% increase.
Article about the study: Carlisle Moody: Handguns Stop Murders
The study itself which outlines how the introduction of the wheellock and then the flintlock lead to successive decreases in crime. Author postulates this is due to the increased potential costs in assaulting people (even a little old lady could win against against a young strong bully if she had a gun) and examines but discounts the civilizing process and the introduction of police. It is worth the time to read the study if you ever intend to discuss the issue with people: http://economics.wm.edu/wp/cwm_wp158.pdf
I had forgotten. The Elites always keep guns for themselves as evidenced by the Shotgun of Nikita Kruschev:Everyone, I pretty much put it in the title. Just like before the planned WW2 invasion of Japan, has there ever
been a comprehensive, non-partisan, study of how many would be killed & wounded in an attempted, complete
gun confiscation in the U.S. ?
Rest assured that many would resist and refuse to go along meekly like those that marched into gas chambers.
With Presidential candidates making it an issue it would be an interesting debate point. Especially because a
former candidate suggested nuking American cities that refused to: "give up their guns."
What would be an acceptable level of killed & wounded for a candidate? 30 million, 40 million, 60 million?
Its almost like discussing the casualty rates in a nuclear exchange.
Please don't reply with "Out of my cold dead hands!" I was looking for factual numbers.
If this is offensive please ignore it.
That's ok, I got no problem with "War Prizes" and most of them don't even know how to load or use said guns!I had forgotten. The Elites always keep guns for themselves as evidenced by the Shotgun of Nikita Kruschev:
Damn good read right there. Thanks.I'm sure I've linked to this blog post by Larry Correia before on this topic. It's long but definitely worth the read.
The 2nd Amendment is Obsolete, Says Congressman Who Wants to Nuke Omaha.
He wrote it last year in response to Rep. Swalwell's threat to confiscate guns and nuke the population it they resisted.
