What you’ll see in the rebellion

This piece is from a gentleman named Bob Owens and he pretty much echoes my beliefs regarding what will happen to America if the Obama regime tries to confiscate guns from the hands of law abiding citizens.

What you’ll see in the rebellion

Let me explain, gun grabbers, how your confiscatory fantasy plays out. Let us imagine for a moment that a sweeping gun control bill similar to the one currently suggested is passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by a contemptuous President.

Perhaps 50-100 million firearms currently owned by law-abiding citizens will become contraband with the stroke of a pen. Citizens will either register their firearms, or turn them in to agents of the federal government, or risk becoming criminals themselves. Faced with this choice, millions will indeed register their arms. Perhaps as many will claim they’ve sold their arms, or had them stolen. Suppose that as many as 200-250 million weapons of other types will go unregistered.

Tens of millions of Americans will refuse to comply with an order that is clearly a violation of the explicit intent of the Second Amendment. Among the most ardent opposing these measures will be military veterans, active duty servicemen, and local law enforcement officers. Many of these individuals will refuse to carry out what they view as Constitutionally illegal orders. Perhaps 40-50 million citizens will view such a law as treason. Perhaps ten percent of those, 4-5 million, would support a rebellion in some way, and maybe 40,000-100,000 Americans will form small independently-functioning active resistance cells, or become lone-wolves.

They will be leaderless, stateless, difficult to track, and considering the number of military veterans that would likely be among their number, extremely skilled at sabotage, assassination, and ambush.

After a number of carefully-planned, highly-publicized, and successful raids by the government, one or more will invariably end “badly.” Whether innocents are gunned down, a city block is burned to ash, or especially fierce resistance leads to a disastrously failed raid doesn’t particularly matter. What matters is that when illusion of the government’s invincibility and infallibility is broken, the hunters will become the hunted.

Unnamed citizens and federal agents will be the first to die, and they will die by the dozens and maybe hundreds, but famous politicians will soon join them in a spate of revenge killings, many of which will go unsolved.

Ironically, while the gun grab was intended to keep citizens from preserving their liberties with medium-powered weapons, it completely ignored the longer-ranged rifles perfect for shooting at ranges far beyond what a security detail can protect, and suppressed .22LR weapons proven deadly in urban sniping in Europe and Asia.

While the Secret Service will be able to protect the President in the White House, he will not dare leave his gilded cage except in carefully controlled circumstances. Even then he will be forced to move like a criminal. He will never be seen outdoors in public again. Not in this country.

The 535 members of the House and Senate in both parties that allowed such a law to pass would largely be on their own; the Secret Service is too small to protect all of them and their families, the Capitol Police too unskilled, and competent private security not particularly interested in working against their own best interests at any price. The elites will be steadily whittled down, and if they can not be reached directly, the targets will become their staffers, spouses, children, and grandchildren. Grandstanding media figures loyal to the regime would die in droves, executed as enemies of the Republic.

You can expect congressional staffs to disintegrate with just a few shootings, and expect elected officials themselves to resign well before a quarter of their number are eliminated, leaving us with a boxed-in executive, his cabinet loyalists trapped in the same win, die, or flee the country circumstance, military regime loyalists, and whatever State Governors who desire to risk their necks as well.

Here, the President will doubtlessly order the activation of National Guard units and the regular military to impose martial law, setting the largest and most powerful military in the world against its own people. Unfortunately, the tighter the President clinches his tyrannical fist, the more rebels he makes.

Military commands and federal agencies will be whittled down as servicemen and agents will desert or defect. Some may leave as individuals, others may join the Rebellion in squad and larger-sized units with all their weapons, tactics, skills, and insider intelligence. The regime will be unable to trust its own people, and because they cannot trust them, they will lose more in a vicious cycle of collapse.

Some of these defectors will be true “operators,” with the skills and background to turn ragtag militia cells into the kind of forces that decimate loyalist troops, allowing them no rest and no respite, striking them when they are away from their most potent weapons. Military vehicles are formidable, but they are thirsty beasts, in terms of fuel, ammo, time, and maintenance. Tanks and bombers are formidable only when they have gas, guns, and can be maintained. In a war without a front, logistics are incredibly easy to destroy, and mechanics and supply clerks are not particularly adept at defending themselves.

Eventually, the government will turn upon itself. The President will be captured or perhaps killed by his own protectors. A dictatorship will form in the vacuum.

If we’re lucky, the United States of America, or whatever amalgam results, will again try to rebuild. If we’re very lucky, the victors will reinstate the Constitution as the law of the land. Just as likely though, we’ll face fractious civil wars fought over issues we’ve not begun to fathom, and a much diminished state or states will result, perhaps guided by foreign interests.

It will not be pretty. There will be no “winners,” and perhaps hundreds of thousands to millions of dead.

Yet, this is the future we face if the power-mad among us are not soundly defeated at the ballot box before they affect more “change” than we, the People, are willing to surrender to would-be tyrants.

Something the gun grabbers seriously need to realize is this; we aren’t Syria, our Police and Military will stand with the American people and we will WIN if this comes down to a fight in the streets.

I pray it doesn’t, but if it does; Deo vindice!

    One thing Bob left out that may save the day. AGs from at least half the states in the union will file suits in federal court against the law.

    But just in case…

    Keep your powder dry

  2. Hgpsurf says:

    I also pray it does not come down to this and I so hope you are right about our Police & Military siding with our section of the American people. There are a lot of anti-gunners out there on the left.
    Obama will probably start out by demonizing gun owners the same way he demonized Romney. Since this tactic worked once he will try it again.

  3. cmblake6 says:

    That’s up at mine as well. God, I hope they understand what is coming, and back off so we don’t have to do what we’re going to have to do if they don’t. *SIGH*

  4. For some reason Paladin Press is running low on several book titles. All of which are illegal in Canada etc.

    I just have to wonder why..?

    Molan Labe Vindice!

  5. This is precisely what, as a street supervisor, I have steadily been promoting Oathkeepers.org to my troops. I emphasize that they have sworn an oath, every one of them, to preserve and defend the Constitution of the United States.

    I hope it does not come down to this.

    But I agree with Texasperated: many state AGs will intercede — but not from the Left Coast, and not Kamala Harris, the traitoress bitch from SF who refused to seek the death penalty for a cop killer.

    One thing to ponder on this is who gets control of the Nuclear Weapons.

  7. Cary says:

    Don’t forget, Katie – Teh Won may have the football, but his receivers will probably be on our side. And can you imagine how he would have to spin firing a nuke on his own country? Even Ahmadinnerjacket hasn’t stooped THAT low …

    I have been reading many articles about this proposed gun ban and what it may or may not contain. I can’t help but feel that we will hear the threat of gun bans and confiscation, whereas the govt we pretend to conceded and settle simply for gun registration, which is what they really wanted the whole time. Kinda liking telling someone you are going to kill them and then you only end up slapping them around a little…it will feel like a win.

    However, as we all know, gun registration leads to ONE THING AND ONE THING ONLY.

    So, let’s say they enact gun registration and I don’t do it. Next thing I know, there are several very well armed officers at my door with a warrant to search for and take any weapons I have as well as an arrest warrant if they find any for my violating of the new gun law.

    What next?

    Or, what if I do register my guns, and not too long thereafter, word gets out that the police are going house to house with a gun registration list, and disarming everyone on the list. It would be real easy since this list will contain my name, address, number of guns, type of guns, and serial #’s…all provided for by me. Hell, I might as well have helped them write the damn arrest warrant if I register my guns.

    Again, what do I do next?

    Let’s say I refuse to be disarmed and treat these officers like I would any other person who tries to overpower and disarm me, I respond with lethal force. One of two things will happen, I will die, or, maybe, I successfully stop the threat of being disarmed.

    Am I the lawbreaker, in violation of the new gun statute? Or, are the men who came to take my guns and arrest me, in violation of the 2nd amendment? After all, it was they who broke the law and started it…right?

    So, this goes to my next question, again, if I am able to stop a three or four man team that had come to my house to arrest me and take my guns, what do I do next? Where do I go? If I turn myself in, I am sure there will be retribution from my captors beyond what the law has set up for me, of this I would have no doubt. Do I go on the run? If so, where. Is there a militia I could seek out? Is there a safe house on the idea of Harriet Tubman had for escaped slaves, as they too were felons on the run facing death if caught.

    So, do I fight back or do I simply give in? And if I fight back, then what?

    These questions must have been quite similar to those our Founding Fathers faced. George Washington could have very easily been hanged as a traitor and a murderer. But, because he won, he became the president of the U.S. and one of the greatest men who ever lived.

    When I really think about it…and I mean PONDER it as if this situation were reality, (as for the first time, this scenario is actually could be reality), the men who signed the Declaration of Independence and first stood up to the crown of Britain, had huge ginormous titanium core, tungsten coated, and for overall effect, dipped in brass, BALLS the size of basketballs. Seriously. These men must have felt at least slightly queasy in what they had just done. I myself, though I hate to admit it, would probably throw up, after the sheer reality hit of what I had just done.

    I can’t be the only one who is pondering this…am I?
