All I can say to @Sasquatch ’s post is
This is a discussion on Oh, we just want to compromise on Gun Control within the HandGuns, Pistols and Revolvers, Long Rifles, Shotguns, SKS, AK, AR forums, part of the Weapons, Protection, Self Defense, Hand to Hand Combat category; I'll try to be as clear as I can on this.

I'll try to be as clear as I can on this.
Full fledged gun confiscation in America is a PIPE DREAM.
They know it. We should know it too.
The same "shock and awe" tactics will be employed the first time this is tried. The intention will be to convince the public that resistance is futile, which is pure lunacy.
The tactics will make them appear as if they are a numerous army, capable of instituting martial law at will for any duration they wish, and going into any neighborhood they wish for any reason they wish.
This is all for show.
Yes, it can be employed successfully on a single house or even a single suburban street. But then what?
Ask any tactician what the logistical implications of a full military force would be to confiscate all guns in the US, and they will just laugh at you.
It is an unsustainable show of force.
Their will be blanket raids scattered across a city to give the impression that they can reach anyone anywhere.
They might be able to conduct these raids for two or three days solid.
Then... physical and mental exhaustion will claim the teams. They will have to rest.
By this time, the people have already been altered to the activity, and must now make a choice. Surrender or resist.
Many will likely surrender. Many will not. The situation will devolve rapidly from there. You will start to see shootouts all over the neighborhood, you will start to see riots, arson, explosions, bodies lying in the street. Hell will break loose.
Without a real military occupying force to support these efforts and quell the uprising, it will be an unwinnable scenario from the gun grabber's POV.
Their identities will be exposed. Their family's lives will be in mortal danger. Their homes will be destroyed.
They are members of the community they will be doing this against. They will not be able to hide behind a mask for long.
Unless you're one of the first houses hit in those first few days (not statistically likely), you will still be capable of mounting a defense to this tyrannical activity.
It is all theater. It is all a show. It is all designed to make you surrender before ever putting up a fight.
Don't allow it.
In the end, it will be up to every man to decide for himself.
I leave you with the words of Sir Winston Churchill:“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly;
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.
There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
"Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats." - H. L. Mencken

With regards to the smoker’s dilemma, I couldn’t help but notice the trend. I’m not a smoker and I feel bad for them. With guns I’d like it if I didn’t have to be a hard-liner. Example, “We can all agree that guns should not be in the hands of people with mental illness.” Me, define the parameters of mental illness. It’s cold out and I leave the house “without my hat”, I go back inside asking “anybody see where I put my hat?”, laughter ensues; some kind soul replies! “It’s on your head.” Real world occurrence. Am I a mental defective? I can’t trust these 2nd Amendment detractors. So no! Give no ground.
How do you eat an Elephant? One bite at a time!
That is the lib/socialist plan for gun control.
Sadly, the Right cannot see it!!
I urge everyone to do as I have done.
I have discussed this with my good friends and some like minded people that are nearby;
If circumstances are dire and gun grabbers come for your guns, alert me and everyone else who is like minded if you can. I will do my best to help make a stand to repel the enemy. I pray that I have the courage to do so. The older I get, the more I KNOW I will stand firm to protect and save the 2nd Amendment to The United States Constitution.

I am with @Slippy , no one takes my guns. @Kauboy is exactly right. There are an estimated 300 million guns in this country. That is the low end, I think it's much higher. There are trillions of rounds in America. If gun owners were the problem, they would know it. No way they can grab them all at once. I will say it. Yippee Kie-Yay Mother-Fuckers...Yippee Kie-Yay
