Alas, it's full of bogus quotes from the FF... If you're gonna take all that time to write a post, at least fact-check what you're posting. Otherwise, yes, a good article!

Any such prohibition will meet with more disregard than the Volstead Act.

That was largely ended by jury nullification. Pretty sure they have that base covered.

Quoting the article, 'If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.'

In fact it's more a responsibility than a right, viewed in the context of being a good citizen. I'll submit that anyone who wants a place at the table has to be willing to do the dishes once in a while.

For what it's worth, the title of the article got it right so I'm suggesting this wording is really an oversight.

Resisting a nationwide gun confiscation would not just be self defense. It would be defense of our country and Constitution from internal threat.

I don't think it would best be done by a homeowner with wife and children surrounded by a swat team. I think it would be better if a local militia were able to surround and overwhelm the confiscation team at random residences where the home owner had little or no knowledge of the identity of the militia members.

Very good proposal.......about 100 guy armed with high powered rifles and hand guns, with about 15 snipers, preferably shooting 338 lapua mags.

Happy happy times.

Thomas Jefferson considered gun ownership to be more than a right, a duty to be used as a deterent to tyrrany in government.

Truthfully it'd only take two, a shooter and his spotter. To take care of a larger, entrenched 'roll up' situation, I'm seeing maximum three teams. Two to engage and one in reserve. More than that is counterproductive.

I doubt that it ever comes to mass confiscation. More likely is to require registration knowing most owners won't comply. Then, we all need our registration number to buy ammunition or reloading supplies. Most gun owners stash them away and no longer go to the range. From that point on, anyone who gets out of line might find his home searched and then he goes to prison. The gun owner, knowing he is a "criminal" will try to keep a low profile and for the most part won't be rocking the boat. A generation later, the guns are mostly gone.
