It's real simple. If it comes to a ban on whatever class of weapons, they will do exactly as they have always done: make possession a felony, then arrest anyone caught with one. Huge fine, maybe some jail time, and a felony record for life. How will they catch them? same old "public safety" road blocks, traffic stops, called to a residence for whatever reason, search for "officer safety" and they see something illegal, etc.

They made Street Sweeper revolving shotguns NFA items several years ago. Where was the uprising then? Most people don't seem to have even noticed.
NFA passed in 1934, and America was much closer to what it is supposed to be then than it is now. Uprising?
US v. Miller, 1939. Uprising?
GCA, 1968. Uprising?
Hughes Amendment, 1986. Uprising?
AWB, 1994. Uprising?
Waco. Ruby Ridge. Need I go on?
The first time a cop shoots an American over an unconstitutional law, nothing is going to happen. I know that because it has already happened, thousands of times over. The cops haven't refused to enforce unconstitutional laws, and the citizenry hasn't risen up when those laws were passed, nor when they were enforced. I predict that a ban on one class of weapons, or all classes of weapons will cause neither an uprising nor a refusal to continue paying the oppressors in the form of fees and taxes.
It will be just like in England. And then a few years later, just like in England, there will be a call to ban pocket knives. And people will take that lying down too, while continuing to dutifully pay their fees and taxes and vote for the next set of "lesser of two evils" candidates.
This Im afraid, is the sad truth.

Welcome too the forum rifle, good points, interesting and well made.
AWB 1994- Their was just as many banned weapons and mags for sale, as before the ban.. Price just went up and people made a fortune on the pre-ban weapons.. I bought mags at the fun shows for $10 each all day long.
Kits $59 delivered too your home. Ammo 1000 round case $79 delivered too your home.. Uprising, why? The ban did nothing but stop Chinese weapons.
Waco- The media fooled the people into believing the ATF was attacking a nut case.. Sheriff in town begged them to stop the attack.
"For God's sake, what the hell are you guys doing. I am on the phone with him. Why the hell did you just not knock?
Maybe he was a nut case, but they learned a valuable lesson, push people to far, they shoot back.
1968- Govt gave 19 year old kids machine guns and unlimited implements of destruction. Sent them off too a foreign land, Millions died.. Minds at the time were elsewhere. Last thing the average American gave a damn about, was full autos..
Waco, Ruby Ridge- Remember the friggen idiot Timothy McVeigh?
Murrah Federal Building, Oklahoma city, 1995? Reprisal for Waco and Ruby Ridge.
168 dead, 680 injured, 324 buildings destroyed within a 16 block area..
May he rot in hell for his sins..
1930s Laws- I cannot answer. People were literally starving and jumping out of windows. War was looming, illegal alcohol laws were ignored and booze was flowing. Mr. Capone had not trouble getting full autos.
Orlando Florida- A few weekends ago..Gun show.. 8,000 people in line to get in. They had to give 4,000 tickets too people, to get in the next day.
Vendors sold out in hours, had to restock and come back the next day.
Fiscal Cliff- Our country is on the verge of bankruptcy.. Gun ban. Bet your house they want guns gone.. Anyone think those people are buying guns for collection? When the food riots start, they are going to need them..
Wally World- Yesterday.. I cruised by the sporting goods section just to watch the show.. Two guys were on the verge of a fist fight over the last box of ammo they wanted.. A Police Officer was called and broke it up, before things got ugly..
Gun ban laws- They learned their lessons well from the last ban. Now they are going for broke.. People turning their weapons in, confiscation?
Read the letter the Marine sent Feinwit.
"You work for me, I protect you.. You want my guns, come git em."
Sorry about the book here.. I really really pray your post is correct.
But I really really fear this is going to get ugly, this time..
I am going too my roof to watch this show.. Good luck out there.
it is all a power grab by the government as an excuse to make bigger government.
this nation i am afraid is turning into a third world socialist police state.
Any EO will be a regulation directive.
Look for taxes on ammo.
And no mail order ammo & no imports of surplus ammo & no .50 BMG ammo,etc.

you get discriminated against by the government authoritys. even though you pay the governments bills.
obamma is like a spoiled brat with his daddys credit card , blowing money on the wind yet defying his daddys call to shore up and be a man for once.
and what exactly can BO do with an executive order other then cut off imports like shrub the first did ?
Amen 427!!!!!!!!!!! Middle aged, straight, white, and employed full time is unfortunately a dying breed thanks to the government and the media. I am tired of being the minority nowadays. I worked something like 600 hours of OVERTIME last year. The government taxed me almost the entire amount that I earned off of that overtime. Now Obamacare is costing me $75.00 more a week for my insurance, the gov is taxing me to death, not to mention the fact that you have to then take what little is left of your income after tax, and pay for goods/services that are further taxed. Now he/they want our guns. Sorry, it aint gonna happen. That's my line in the sand.

I bet what's left of Mexican nationals would love it. Then we could get free rifles from the ATF, be warm, climb pyramids & have all kinds of fun.:nanabang::nanabang:
The drug gangs could just move up here where the business is.
