If you sit around waiting for the thugs to knock on your door, turning a blind eye, or even worse actively supporting he thugs when they make up stories that someone else somehow deserve to have their guns confiscated, you are right. The Feds will be able to do as you say.
The other option, to draw a line in the sand, and once that line is crossed, you go on the offensive proactively, will work, as long as enough people are clued in.
Say, if ten million gun owners, upon hearing that someone, somewhere, for some trumped up reason have their guns confiscated, immediately go about shooting and killing all those who support the confiscation. That woul work. I can't commend it, as doin so may well be illegal. But there is no doubt it would work. Just like a similar reaction did work in the revolutionary war.
