Say, hypothetically, the liberals got the 2nd Amendment repealed from the constitution. And made owning a firearm of any kind, as a civilian, a felony...Do you think there would be a second Civil War?

Disclaimer: I am, in no way, suggesting a mutiny of any sort. Nor am I implying that I would be, in any way, affiliated with a treason against the United States. This is merely a trivial, hypothetical situation created for amusement.

I'm halfway between the last two. The Sheeple are so conditioned anymore that any sort of uprising would not only be quickly quelled (nice alliteration, huh?), but condemned by the liberal press. I don't think it would be a nationwide rebellion. There's just not that type of organization, nor support.

I would hope yes, but I'm afraid the correct answer is most likely no. Not enough people give enough of a s**t to risk it.

I'm currently teaching my daughter about the American Revolution. Those guys were amazing in their commitment, and even my 6 year old has noticed the similarity between colonial era England and our current Federal government. We so suck.

Wow, I really thought I'd see alot more votes for Yes.

BTW Daddyo, lots of respect for teaching your daughter about our country's history. Maybe if some of the liberals would take what our founding fathers said about gun rights, they would see the big picture. Just goes to show, some people are blind to the truth, and there is six year olds that are smarter than alot of politians!
Although, I do disagree that most people don't give a s**t. I think if confronted with the actual situation, many people would give a s**t. Even some who are on the fence, and are not quite sure what to believe, would realise that it is wrong to take away guns. The right to bear arms is engraved so deeply in our history, our culture, and our people. I believe many would feel that is a freedom worth dying for.
Live long and defend yourself.

You will be surprised at the lack of concern by the majority of the sheeple out there. Those who would resist would be condemned as right wing whackos ala Waco or Ruby Ridge. We have seen this before and the government has learned much in the time since those events they have better control of things now thanks to the Patriot act etc. All they are lacking is the right person to occupy the white house and they will have that by this November. Am I saying the end is near no but you would be a fool not to recognize the signs. Look at the rest of the world no other major first world power lets its citizens own firearms anymore too dangerous, for the goevernment. We knuckle draggers here in the states we few die hard gun nuts are all that are left of the free thnkiers who founded this country and everyday we are fewer and fewer. Currently the ATF is closing as many mom and pop gunstores as they can via loop holes or clerical errors. There are something like 50 percent fewer gun shops in the US as there were in 1980. So the progression is clear chip away everyday and slowly attrit the rights remaining in the way of complete control.

Not a pretty picture but that is how I see it. Do your own research you may be surprised at what you learn.

I pray that will never happen and that is why we are here, to help answer that prayer. Where would we go, what would we do. No other country would do so we would need to take this one back. I often comment to some of my co-workers on my trucking job about our country leaning toward socialism and one often reminds me "we are not socialistic as my old country" he lived in Russia until the 1980's and LEGALLY :huh: (wow what an idea, to legally enter a country) came here.
I know we are slipin' to the left, but we can fight it back. Being a democracy there will always be conflict, compromise, bending, bargaining but never breaking.
Because God help the politicians that would let that happen while we are on watch. I will defend my country and it's constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC.

I would like to know who among US has the brass to confront our government. Would USACarry.com supporters have the brass to stand up to a government who would betray their own people?

We know why the 2A is in the constitution. It's to give us the rights and means to stop these things from happening. I don't want to live in a communist country. Do you?

I voted yes, and was really surprised that more people did not vote yes. I thought the gap would much wider between percentages.

No kidding. My oldest is a Founding Fathers/Revolutionary War junkie. Amazing how we're taught how free this country is, but we've come a long way from the freedom that our founders envisioned and established. The next generation need to learn more about the revolutionary era than the skim over they get at school--parents and grandparents take note :) . A great book is "How to Raise an American--1776 fun and easy tools, tips, and activities to help your child love this country" by Myrna Blyth and Chryss Winston.

Here's my boy at Halloween--most kids in his class were dead/gross things and he wanted to be George Washington (real drop front breeches, 18th century shirt, cravate, and sized down regimental coat made by his crazy mom).

It really all depends. Just on the basis of repealing the 2nd Amendment, there wouldn't be a civil war - there's not enough widespread support for it. Many people, although they may own one or two guns that they never use, would go along with it.

If people saw it as a "today the 2nd Amendment, tomorrow the ___ Amendment" situation, then more people might take a definite position on it.

I don't think any thing would happen. Myself would get in touch with the bad inflewence freinds and get a couple of non-registered guns and stash them.

I think that with the right leadership, a Civil War would be a very good possibility. The situation can be spun several ways that would encourage folks to take action.

I'd have a feeling the number of stolen firearm reports would skyrocket at every local police department. Smirk. I think this would go down one way in some states and another in others. The heartland gun culture would have issues with giving up their guns. Big issues. Just look at the number of competition shoots, SASS, and ccw alone. In the large cities it probably would go down easier, well it already is. Like the food or money for guns patrol. ARG!!! Don't know honestly what would happen, hope we never see that. Best that can be done is to spread gun safety and gun education and keep doing what we are doing.

Definitely. If it were spun right, I could even see liberals unexpectedly getting on board. If the 2nd A gets repealed, then what else might go? Search and seizure? Attorney rights? There's a lot of bongs out there waiting to be seized. It's all connected, and I for one would be fine with negotiations that legalize marijuana, if we get to repeal the NFA.

In a manner of speaking yes...

It would bring us back to the Prohibition Era; violence, chaos. We didn't being able to drink as part of our Bill of Rights, but it certainly was treated as such back then.

We'd have gun runners instead of bootleggers. Higher incidence of vigilantism. What would happen after a few years is the Amendment repealing the 2nd would be repealed like Prohibition if the country survives that long. A modern day prohibition could feasibly be the end of days for our country. Law enforcement and military would be overtaxed handling domestic issues. Crime would flourish.

Also keep in mind the amount of civilian firearm owners in the US greatly out numbers our military and commissioned LEOs. Come to think of it, the number of active NRA members probably outnumbers our military and commissioned LEOs in the US.
