Millions of conservative Americans are at the near breaking point when it comes to losing their constitutional rights. It seems ever week or so, either local or state governments or the federal government passes another ordinance, rule, regulation or law that chips away at one or more of their constitutional rights.
Of these rights, few bring the blood to boiling more than the Second Amendment right to bear arms. To many staunch conservatives, the right to own guns is as fundamental as the right to breath air and drink water. They cannot and will not envision life here in America without their guns. It’s just about hunting, target or sport shooting and it’s not just about being able to defend one’s self, family or home, but it’s about the foundational principles America was founded upon, and many Americans are willing to give up their lives to fight for these foundational rights and principles.
Some Democrats are pushing to ban all guns, just like they did in Great Britain and Australia, but what they fail to understand is that the right to bear arms was not a foundational right in those nations like it is America and trying to ban guns here will likely result in a very bloody civil war.

Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America. It may be their most beautiful dream. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns?
Let me suggest a less happy, but probably more accurate version of how an attempt at gun confiscation would likely go. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment followed by Washington making gun ownership illegal. So far, so good, right? Then the vast majority of police departments across the country refuse to do more than accept weapons that are turned in and, of course, very few citizens actually hand over their weapons. At this point, D.C. would have no choice other than to accept that gun confiscation is impossible, which would be the most likely outcome.
Or, alternately, D.C. could hire goon squads in local communities to go house to house to confiscate weapons. Yes, people would be killed in conflicts with the police and goon squads that come to take their guns. Liberals would cheer. They would not be cheering when police chiefs, officers, and goon squad members who carry out these orders are assassinated at their homes by armed people from their own communities…
What would you do if federal officials came for your guns? Would you give them up willingly or, like Heston said about prying them from your cold dead hands? Many of my conservative friends, and even some family, would rather fight for their Second Amendment rights instead of rolling over and becoming a slave to a socialist and tyrannical government. One thing is for sue and that is if a gun ban is passed, many brave, loyal and patriotic Americans will die and so will many stupid socialist Democrats.
