When (sh*t hits the fan) SHTF....and guns/weapons are banned and taken away from the american citizens, how will we protect ourselves from rioters, criminals etc? I don't know if anyone else is worried about this out there but it's going to happen...
Someone brought up a good point. Right now they are trying to require all guns are when it comes time to ban them, they know who you are, where you are and what you have.....doesn't anyone else see what's happening?

Sincerely....the law abiding citizen whose rights are being taken away because of what a handful of criminals have done!

  • First of all, there's no reason to assume that registration=trying to take away your guns. Second, in a real anarchic situation, if you bring out a gun, you will probably get shot by the rioters.

    Things need to change.  No reason for anyone to own an assualt weapon.

  • No where does it say that stable law abiding citizens can not have guns.
    I'm seriously getting sick of the paranoia going around.

  • You won't be able to protect yourself and there will be too many crimes reported for you to get help from law enforcement. You will either be without a weapon (intentionally or not) or you will have an illegal weapon. Reading through the EO's that were signed yesterday, there is very little in substance. Vague descriptions and a lot of nuance, but hardly enforceable and since this did not go through congress. You will see an increase in reporting of gun violence by MSM to propagate anti-second amendment agenda and unfortunately there will be a lot of people that see the gun, not the criminal offender as the problem. Keep in contact with your elected representatives and let them know your thoughts on the matter.
