There are places where LE are afraid to go in times of peace. That's not going to improve in a time of war. There are folks whose property I would not set foot on uninvited even though I know and have a good relationship with them. They won't become more welcoming in a crisis. There are folks who will absolutely throw down on the spot if goons show up to their house.

Personally, I believe the wise man chooses the time, place, and circumstance of his battles. On your front door step with the family home is not a good situation. So.... don't keep all your eggs in one basket.

Agreed.

& it would be tragically hysterical.

I would “imagine” most folk would have zero remorse over taking out any blue hats. Easily seen as a foreign invading force.

Our own uniformed boys (&ladies) on the other hand, even if following unjust orders, is another layer of morality.

Political command & control, in said hypothetical, oh my oh my would surely be “interesting” for those folk in there entirety. Morons seem to forget that a lot of really good folks know how to do bad stuff & to do it very well.

If that ever happens most will bow before the un. It's not exactly like they will walk around in open top trucks.

When the Bradley fires into your mobile home or that pesky drone watches you 24/7 burying guns....

It's going be a brutal fight

So , are you assuming that all of the US military will side with an unconstitutional/ illegal gvmt? Do really believe that there are NO patriots in the military and they wouldn't take a Humvee or Bradly or whatever they have now a days with them when they left?

Actual door to door confiscation will not be what they do. Anyone who has a gun registered to them and has not turned it in will be flagged for non-compliance. They then flag your tax returns so no refunds if you are due one, they pass laws that authorize them to seize your bank accounts until you comply, etc, etc. There is no end to the ways they can make your life miserable until you turn them in. They just have to wait and snicker to themselves...

Sure there will be some who are completely off-grid, using cash, etc. But if they are getting a retirement, or social security, etc they will go after that.

In my opinion, they chose their side. I would have no compassion for them.

I think it is the height of foolishness to think "the military will be on our side!". Some will, no doubt, but some won't. When it comes down to it, our benevolent government will determine who will, and who won't, and then act accordingly. Probably booting out those who will not comply with orders. A disgruntled former soldier is far less dangerous than a disgruntled soldier with access to heavy weaponry and military technology.

Remember the survey a few years ago where over 25% of surveyed Marines said they would fire upon U.S. citizens who refused to comply with a gun ban? Remember Hurricane Katrina?

That said, I don't think there will be large scale gun confiscation right away (small scale, it's already happening). Other things will happen first, as others have stated. But it IS coming.

They would have zero for you as well. Good luck and maybe try winning them over before killing them. Because I can guarantee you that they will play with the gloves off first chance they get.
