I don't see it happening in a tactical sense. In the last few years gun enthusiast have seen SCOTUS rule in our favor, local laws being changed in our favor and actually one of the record sales of firearms and accessories (thanks to the current administration).My intent was to stimulate thought more from the philisophical direction than the tactical, although I wholeheartedly agree with most of the above sentiments.
If you don't like it, don't read it and shut your trap. For the love of god, noone cares about your long-winded diatribe"Guest Editorial?" What, now there are TWO people behind this blog? Listen, just because some eccentric uses a freeware program to write his own blog does not mean that it is not the deluded ravings of an unsound mind. There is no professional peer-review, no vetting of authors or their history, no fact-checking, no board of editors, no EVIDENCE except quotations from OTHER blogs with the same lack of evidence or any credibility. Just because somebody writes stuff in a blog does not mean that it is TRUE. I think I need to repeat this: JUST BECAUSE SOMEBODY WRITES STUFF IN A BLOG DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT IS TRUE.
There are two big reasons to write a scary blog, besides spreading one's nutcase theories: First, note that all of these blogs have banner ads and links to commercial sites and enterprises, at the very least selling a book. Get it? The blog makes MONEY. The more sensational it is the more likely to grow and get more "hits" to the ads, and make more money. Second, blogs usually promote some membership organization based upon fear. The more frightened they can make readers, the more likely they are to PAY MEMBERSHIPS to the cause, and make MONEY for the blog.
I think that you are getting my drift. There are lots of sensational blogs out there, usually written by just one person, making all kinds of anxiety-fueling claims to get you to spread their rumors and chain emails and join their "organizations". In almost every case they are making MONEY, and have no EVIDENCE for what they claim, no truth behind their assertions---and then they insist that critics have to prove them wrong or else that is evidence that it must be true! OH, PLEASE!.......................elsullo

I am a self-appointed crusader for truth, justice, and the American Way. I am retired now, and have a lot of free time to comment when posters offer material for comment, and if I have a strong opinion on what others claim. That's the purpose of a messageboard, right? My nickname is at the top of my posts; if you dont care then don't read it. My work is done here......................elsullo
You liken blogs to non-sensical, single-point, non-evidential opinions that we shouldn't take too seriously. LOOK AT OUR "MAINSTREAM" MEDIA!! Those guys are so full of it, they just pull random stuff out of their hats, fabricate truths (GM vehicles EXPLODE when hit near the gas tank) and idiots believe it because someone famous said it. If some no-name clown from BFE said half the garbage that came from our mainstream media, he would be another one of your victims. You'd Shift the blame, Ignore the facts and Name call (sorry, I like that and had to work it in) Thank god you're retired and hopefully have pulled your collective head out of the rest of the world so you're not REALLY influencing anyone.
JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE WRITES SOMETHING FOR A TALKING HEAD TO ESPOUSE ON NATIONAL TV DOESN'T MEAN IT'S TRUE!
Got any peer-reviewed, non-scary blog, fact-checked evidence there, chief? Did you forget about Dick Cheney and Karl Rove?... Fox News is highly untrustworthy! Much of what Newt Gingrich and Michelle Bachman have said has been proven to be untrue fabrications!
There will be quite a few less if they tried to take our weapons as well. Some of us might uncork pandora's box on irregular warefare on them to protect our way of life.I served and I know we have nothing to worry about. The United States military makes up less than 1% of the people in the US. There is not enough LE to go house to house. I don't think LE has the intelligence to pull this off so most people are better qualified at using firearms anyways.
So don't worry the military would not do it and LE is not qualified to do it and if they tried they would be idiots.
They would have to go to court as well to execute this and it would be shot down and we outgun LE by 10 to one. I bet most large city LE only have their crappy butt Glocks because they don't know how to use other guns.
