I know you see those helicopters coming! The funny part is , this would be the best-armed populence against the best-armed military in the world. Who do you think would win? Funnier than that is the fact that those who would oppose the oppose those government forces are the very ones who praise those military forces to the high heavens. Funny, ain't it?
I think you are dated with the black helicopters. Now they just use drones over the US, and I am sure at some point those would become armed drones.
Yes I do have high regard for our Military and those that serve in it. That is why I agree with Flip that it may not be the US Military that does the dirty work. They will probably have UN on their uniforms someplace. I am not sure which way the US Military will go if this comes to a head. They also swear to uphold the US Constitution. They may just be part of the rebellion.
If you don't see that in multiple conflicts poorly trained people with light weapons can tie up the best trained most technologically advanced Military in the world you are not studying the history of the last 60 years - and longer for that matter. Only a fool would take on a tank with an AR15. That is the stuff of movies you claim you don't watch. What you CAN do with an AR15, or your favorite buddy who likes taking shots over 1 KM is harder for them to stop. There will be far more armed insurgents in the US then there were in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam COMBINED.
They know this - and it is ONLY common sense that anyone with large capacity magazines, assault rifles, etc register them now. I mean.... it is to protect our KIDS after all. Never mind it wouldn't have prevented ANY of the shootings.
Nope Sammy - no one trying to take away guns. We are all just paranoid as we watch our government grow larger, and we watch our Constitution violated.
