    Okay Guys it's time to play hard ball. Iam going to ask a very tough question. First off I'll give you the skinny on Me. Iam a Vietnam Veteran,fought there is 67&68 during the Tet offensive. I have hunted, and target shot all my life I am also a N.R.A. member. It seems to me that our Government is becoming more and more socialistic.A lot of the freedoms that us veterans have fought for over the generations are now being attacked by left wing politicians,and I know that the problem will probably get worse with the present Administration,and liberal Congress. Here is my question if our U.S. government finds a way to take our Second Amendment rights from us and the authorities come to confiscate our firearms like they did in Great Britain, and Australia.Would you buckle under the pressure and hand over your guns,or would you have the courage and guts to stand your ground and fight to the death for what you believe in "Our second amendments rights to keep and bare Arms". Just wondering how many of my brethren have a pair to stand their ground for what they believe in. As for me and my firearms ( till death do us part).Please if you are not a N.R.A. member become one, they need all the help they can get. Sincerely, Al

    Hey Allan,
    First off all thank you for your service.
    I am not an N.R.A member yet. But I am consedering it. I see more and more law taking place over the few years I have been alive I am in my mid 30's so please overlook my stupidity. I hope we can stop these libs and Antiestes before they make any more laws on guns. But, I'm afraid that, with the currant Pres and Congress thats almost a losing battle "I hope I'm wrong." But if they come knocking my door down, I will protect my family. I would die for my family's rights. But would I watch as my family is killed because I wouldn't hand over my regesterd arms. That would be hard to do. I guess that would make me a coward in some ways. But you know there not gonna get every gun out there. I wish people would stick together and fight for the right. Seems aleast where I'm at people seem to be heavy libs, Childesh and selfcentered to the point they don't care as long as they have there little toys. And they vote on feelings insted of principal. I'm glad you asked the question. I hope there are people out there with some fight in them enough to band together and stop them from taking away our kids and grandkids futures.

      I am a VET as well and im with you on fighting for our rights! I dont think they will take the second amendment away any time soon, instead i think they will keep doing what they are doing now by just making it harder to own a gun and jacking the taxes way up on ammunition and so forth. You ask would i fight for my guns... Andy had a very good response to that when it came to his family but honestly im a little more hard headed and would fight for my guns! That was a good question Allan!

        I too would like to thank you/am a vet.
        I will NEVER guve up my weapons to ANY government agency PERIOD !
        A couple of quotes for everyone, and somthing to look into.
        "Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion... in private self-defence" Joh Adams
        "The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost ever other nation...where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." James Madison
        "If you control the government, you control the mind.
        If you control the guns you control the body." Ben Rains/William Johnstone.
        As for taking 2A away soon look into HB45.(NOT GOOD !).

          Allan, Thank you for your service. I truly believe that you're question is as pertinent now as at any time in our history. I WILL NEVER FREELY GIVE UP MY GUNS TO ANY ONE FROM THE GOVERNMENT. I WILL DIE IN A POOL OF BLOOD FIRST! I was reading a posting the other day that implied that we are either foolish or alarmist if we feel that our new administration is something new; something unusual. Well, he's wrong. This is fully a socialist president and in socialism there is no place for individuals and no place for guns. This is not FEAR MONGERING; it's fact. We have to stay strong,fearless and united for our common goals of individual freedoms and limited government. God bless you Allan, and every one who has ever worn the colors of this great land we live in.

              If there is a pro-gun rights march or demonstration in Washington it will be by Americans of every color and creed, in every uniform, all united by one thing - the American flag on their arms and hearts. So, how will the current administration distinguish themselves ... by the seal Obama used during his campaign?

                Thank you for your service to the country. Thanks for the question too, its cool to see people reactions to things like this. i dont realy agree with most of you guys though. i agree that we should all have the right to arm ourselves war or not. heres the problem with those of you saying you'll fight till the death. who are you going to fight it out with? i know for a fact none of us will even get close to facing the lawmakers. are we all going to storm the embacies and the capital? who exactly is at these government buildings? Soldiers whether they be Marines, Army, or National guard. do you realize you would be taking shots not at goverment but you brothers and sisters, neihbors and friends? are you willing to kill someone who risked their life by joining the military to protect our rights and our lives? here you are thanking Allen yet you are all saying you would kill the brave men and women like him just so save your guns. im crazy about guns all my money goes towards buying them but i will be the first one to give them up if it would save a life of a soldier or a police officer. Do what you want just think it through

                  It would be easier for them to take the salt out of the sea than the guns out of Idaho......

                    As for asking any local law enforcement officers to confiscate weapons, I believe the feds would get a response similar to the one Sheriff Kimbel gave in Young Guns II, when asked to go after Billy the Kid.... "I'd rather drink turpentine and piss on a brushfire. I ain't touchin this one."

                      true i think its more trouble than its worth sure there are shooting accidents but were realy not that bad. whats bad is the wanna-bs running through the cities killing inocent people because they dont have the guts to face someone armed who can fight back

                        Thanks for your service Alan. I am the son of a Vietnam Vet, and believe as you do. There is no honor in giving up over 200 years of intense and expensive sacrifice. I do not want to have to make the choice to die for what I believe in, but neither did any other American that died for our freedom. When it comes right down to it, we don't really have the luxury of choice. Besides, I would rather die protecting the freedom of my children that live knowing I chose not to.

                          I read your posting and your concern is real .Who will we,who believe in the constitution, draw down on when push comes to the door? This is a decision all strong willed men and women may someday have to make. The decision comes down to this; what do you believe in? what are you willing to do to protect what you believe in? Everyone of us has to have a standard or we become sheep, willing to be lead in any direction some nut wants to lead us. I firmly believe in the Constitution and the freedom that it gives us to defend ourselves; even if the factor we are defending ourselves from is a out of control government.

                            I for one was born a free man; a citizen of the USA and I intend to die as one. When the BO appoints his
                            gun czar then we will surely know which way the wind
                            will blow. We as Americans are unique in this world.
                            We are CITIZENS not subjects. When our Founders rose off their haunches and looked King George straight in the eye and said you are no better than any man here,
                            the world shook. My rights are inalienable and given to me by divine provinence. No man or government may
                            strip me of them. Trust brothers that tyranny has pro-
                            bably never been so close again to us as now. When our own soldiers come for our arms then we shall fight. All patriotic gun owners should be members of the NRA. A mere $35 a year goes a long way with them
                            to carry the battle forward. God Bless America

                              i still dont understand though you guys are willing to go in battle and kill soldiers who are giving up their lives to help you? not by taking away your guns that would only be an order. all the soldiers i know own guns and most belong to the NRA. for most soldiers and i say this as if i were in their position if this ever happens would be fighting for the man/women next to them not to take away your rights. think of it and many of you are/were soldiers would you let your partner/squad die so you can keep your guns. fight all you want im all for it not against violence but im not for it either. and wouldnt this be a bad time to take away citizens guns were in the middle of a huge war. at the moment we are spread so thin a former soldier i was talking to last night said it would take 90 days to get an army to any other country and by doing this we would have to take them out of the middle east apparently theres very little on stand by. can any one confirm or deny this?
