I feel we are headed to civil war or revolution, but I thought it would develop more slowly over the next decade or two as economic conditions become intolerable for enough citizens to justify them awakening from their slumber and fighting back.
I hadn't read of the predictions of assassinations of those who might vote to confiscate guns or those who might try to enforce such a law, and was actually surprised to see someone openly recognize that as a high probability. Also I was encouraged to hear someone say that some of the military might not follow orders and might shoot officers giving such orders. I though fragging crappy officers went out of style when VietNam ended.
We are a very divided society and I suppose the trigger for a revolution might as easily be gun control as the intolerable economic plunder and control system. It is an interesting thought that as a government nears its terminal stage it takes draconian measures to remain in power, and history shows that these actions only hasten the end. I think that is a rule of nature worth understanding, which explains much of the oppressive legislation in recent years and the arming of federal agencies like Homeland Security and even the Social Security Administration.
Liberty isn't given to us; it is taken by us, and if not, we will not have it.
