What should Americans do if the government tries to take our guns?

Report as
wickedpissah

1. The American government has never tried to "take yer guns."
2. The American government never will try to "take yer guns".
3. This entire meme you're pushing is nothing more than a fear-based marketing program by the armament industry to increase it's sales and its profits.
4. Stop being a tool for the corporations, please.

As the majority of us have said: It is not going to happen. Therefore there is no reason to even think about worrying. We are a democracy not a dictatorship.
Report as
Explain to me why it "should" worry every American?
Report as
Because we need the same weapons our government has in case they become tyrannical.We must always remind the government they work for us not the other way around

2. The military will not join you. They will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign AND DOMESTIC, and they will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over them, in accordance with regulation and the Uniform Code of Military Justice.

You would be endangering your family, and your neighbors will not help you.talk is cheap, everyone's a warrior until the bullets start flying.Red dawn was a fun movie, but the reality of war is not.I have a gun to protect me from would be home invaders, our military protects me from invaders.

If the government tries to take away our guns they are violating the constitution. The only way they can take away our guns would be to add another amendment to the constitution. What people aren't getting about this issue though is the USA has two choices. The Japanese Choice or The Swiss Choice. In Japan only the police are allowed to have guns. In Switzerland all men have guns, are trained to use them, and carry them at all times. In America of course it would be all men AND women though. I personally prefer the Swiss choice though. I like my right to bare arms and am going to get a gun as soon as I am old enough. All of my sources are a debate I participated in during my 8th grade social studies class. I hope I have answered your question!

Ok, you do know that there are constitutional protections against the seizure of personal property? I would just sue them. Let the Supreme Court tell the administration to pound sand.

Some of you seriously need to stop watching tv.
Nobody is taking our guns
Nobody in government is limiting ammunition. The reason you can't find it and stores are limiting purchases is because the NRA is pushing the propaganda you obviously have fallen for and "amerikuns" are cleaning the shelves out.
