How Would Gun Confiscation Play Out?

I try to imagine just how it would play out in the event that they actually do ban guns and start trying to take them away from us. Would they go door to door and if so then what? Does everyone plan to just shoot them at the door? Hide the guns somehow? Create an army? They have all the big toys compared to the general public. Should we even post thoughts on this at all?

I came across this guy on youtube. I think he probably has it right.



If they try

They will fail

“If your enemy is secure at all points, be prepared for him.

If he is in superior strength, evade him. If your opponent is temperamental, seek to irritate him. Pretend to be weak, that he may grow arrogant. If he is taking his ease, give him no rest. If his forces are united, separate them. If sovereign and subject are in accord, put division between them. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.”

― Sun Tzu

As I've stated elsewhere

They will divide and ostracize. The current laws that keep felons from possessing firearms will be expanded to misdemeanors and then quickly to anyone accused of any type of infraction of the law. The word "accused" is operative here. A mere traffic violation will be used to show an individual has no respect for the law and should not be allowed to own or possess a fire arm. For a few years I operated a hot dog cart at the County courthouse here. It was amazing to see the amount of fire arms brought in by the County Sheriff right before hunting season. A Protection From Abuse order ensures that all that is required for your weapons to be forfeit is an accusation by someone that you threatened or harmed them. The area I reside in is rich in tradition for hunting and manipulative women would initiate a dispute in order to punish their mate. No trial, no appeal, once the judge issues the order you have lost your Second Amendment rights. Same thing if there is any type of conviction, no matter how trivial, where probation has been ordered. All fire arms must be removed from your domicile. This is how they will do it, by making us all criminals.

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.

Well since i dont have a.....

Phobia of interacting with cops. I was speaking to one while i was working the other night. The Sargent I was taking to was retired military and a police officer for over 15 years. We were shooting the bull and talking about why he was where I work. A person was acting crazy on drugs and running around the streets (naked) and made a bad choice to try to enter a stranger home. The person on the other side of the door had a gun and shot him in the chest. Good ol 2A. I threw out to get a reaction, "Its going to suck when you guys have to start regulating firearms and high capacity mags like in California. He made me aware that his squad and multiple squads alike have had recent private meetings to talk about this. His passion for being an American cam through in his eyes and the way he kept saying, "I work for the people..." and "I have personal firearms too..." type statements. I am fully aware that sheep will always fallow the Shepard but in reality this Sargent, is a Shepard of over 30 cops (his sheep). This was great for me to hear and see. I hope it is for you to. Keep the intellectual battle going it is the hears and minds we need to win, god bless.

I don't think door to door confiscation will work for long

It will work at the beginning but they can't get too many before the word is out. At that point I think the holdouts will find a means to organize and take the "authorities" into custody and strip them of their powers.

We will know when they start because there are some in the law enforcer and military ranks that will sound the alarm. But the early targets will get their guns taken.

Best to plan now for how to resist with many scenarios of how the confiscation will proceed.

just remember that the entire

just remember that the entire east coast was PARALYZED years ago by the east coast sniper.


After he (they actually- including the son) took out the first 5-10 people...there was MASSIVE panic. Millions of people were scared to go outside.

Imagine when you have millions of snipers.

Absolutely right. Snipers are the PTBs worst nighmare.

That is why I advised vets with sniper training to get off the grid as soon as the NDAA was passed in 2011.

Again, I advise anyone who has not seen "Enemy at the Gates" to watch it, as it shows how a small cadre of Soviet snipers stopped the German Army in its tracks at Stalingrad.

Good question,

Skippy (imo).

Does anyone else get tired of comments purporting that "The People" will lose the 'definitely-gonna-happen' upcoming confiscation and/or resultant civil war?? To me those comments are nothing more than futile attempts to lower morale, and I, for one, will NOT fall for it!

As far as I am concerned, any possible scenario the government has thought about, has also been thought about by true Patriots! I don't think these Patriots are idiots, and I have the utmost faith that plans are in place to counter any possible move. (if the definitely-gonna-happen actually happens)

A big thumbs up to my Patriotic brothers and sisters...

Good question

I've heard it said; when they come for your guns, give em the bullets.


...but that's just a wild guess.


Fancy Shmancy Fine Print:

They'll collapse the economy,

They'll collapse the economy, shut off the water and power and throuh price fixing and inflation insure that no food shows up to the grocery stores.

Most people will trade in their firearms for a glass of water at that point.

Next, they'll promise to bring back Big Macs and Monday Night football to the sheep if they'll just help round up those evil libertarian terrorists who are at the cause of it all.

Really is better to take over your local government so we can stop this in its tracks county by county, state by state. We can win in politics if we move fast. We are not likley to win if it comes to violence. No one is likley to win save for the few elite at the very top who can take cover in their bunkers.

They could collapse the internet

so people wouldn't know what's going on around the country.

It they collapse the economy, the people will kill them.

No ifs, ands or buts.

That's silly

Who are "they"? How will "the people" find "them"?

The people who have that power spend half their time in their private jets, flying around the world.

Learn From History Past

To see "How this would play-out," See how they did it from History Past.

Do everything in your power NOW to not let it come to this. Stop it before it starts.

If you've ever learned how they did it in other countries, you won't like it at all.

I've known this was coming and have studied this for YEARS! I'm giving you all some good advice on what you all need to do NOW!

History of Gun Bans

I know what happened in Russia and Germany as the result of gun confiscation. It's terrifying. Thanks for the links. At least our sheriff is an oathkeeper. That's a start


I really don't see it

I really don't see it happening like the past...just because we know the history and more patriots are assembled in america than any place in the world...but with the growing number of zombies ...who knows.

Feinstein Bill Fail

I don't suspect Feinstein's bill will have any success. It will go down in the House, if not the Senate.

If it does succeed in some form and gain passage, it won't have everything Feinstein currently has on it. It will just be yet another little piece of incrementalism.

If it does succeed in its current proposed form, it will be enforced through legal tactics, NOT armed officers showing up on your doorstep.

For example, consider this: the Feinstein Bill allows grandfathered weapons to be kept, IF registered. You can choose NOT to register your weapon, but should you be found with it in the future in some circumstance, you will have no proof that it is a legal grandfathered weapon because you didn't register it like the government asked, and therefore you will have no standing in court to keep your weapon.

So you can choose to go out in a personal blaze of glory that won't receive media coverage and no one will care about it, or you can comply and register your weapon if the law passes. I prefer neither option. The first battle we should concentrate on is the one in Congress, and the one in public opinion.

God Bless.

Don't think for a second that the media won't give every "blaze

of glory" patriot his 15 minutes.

They love that sort of stuff.

It Would Be Incremental

Before they can confiscate they have to know who has them. The best way to go about it is to require a federal license to own and use any firearm. It would be easy to get but would require everyone to list all the firearms in their possession. Stiff penalties would exist for violators. Once compliance has been established with the law abiding they can begin banning firearms incrementally according to type (using every tragedy as further justification). Owners will have a time limit to turn in the firearms or be criminally prosecuted for failing to comply. This way they don't need to confiscate the guns - americans will turn them in "voluntarily". In the end only the gov't and 'criminals' will possess them.

I think that the police...

I think that the police will need a caravan of ambulances to follow them as they attempt this process. In the end they will give up.


In an Ideal World

ALL GUNS will be illegal.

Door-to-door confiscation will be limited to a Multi-National Special Task Force consisting of:

Diane Feinstein
Chuck Shumer
Eric Holder
Piers Morgan
Michael Bloomberg
Frank Lautenberg

Confiscations to begin in West Virginia immediately.


Some people apparently don't get sarcastic humor, which this was a gorgeous piece of.

In an ideal world, everyone is armed.

I hope that task force comes to my door personally. This could all be over faster than it started. :)

If they use Dianne Feinstein's bill

It calls for grandfathering in existing ownership BUT requires you to register the guns. And then of course no new purchases.
IF they pass this bill with the current wording, they won't be confiscating guns UNLESS they have record of your prior purchase. I wonder if this is their attempt at working towards a ban. They want to make it so cumbersome to own a gun the average Joe won't bother.

Very badly.

Thousands if not hundreds of thousands of small Patriot Cells will pop up over time.

You will have initial fights break out though.

That's my prediction, anyway.

Eat chicken wings?

Many cops ride bike, invite a few along with the sheriff to bike/wing night and pick up the tab.

I see it playing out like you do. Hopefully they will group together and make a presence, maybe that will weed out the bad ones for re-election. Sheriffs are elected. In my area it's all democrats so I guess I'm lone wolf. One to the head and I'm in my final resting plot. Daisy's are pretty in my area. Not the red-head, the ones I'll be pushing up.
