Want to See What Real Civil Unrest Looks Like? Try Confiscating Americans’ Guns

gun buyback confiscation

Active attempting gun confiscation in this country will make the past month’s violence look like a Sunday picnic.

Gun confiscation is a thoroughly unworkable policy, and probably the idea most likely to spur a violent resistance to American law enforcement. (Not that we haven’t seen plenty of violent resistance to American law enforcement already this year.) The more Americans own guns, the less likely it is that a proposal like confiscation ever gets any serious traction.

    I wonder if it will dawn on any of the new gun owners that they’ve been voting for the wrong side.

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      Yes, many are voting for the wrong party:

      “I like taking guns away early,” Trump said. “Take the guns first, go through due process second.”
      Trump also said some of his fellow Republicans were “petrified” of the NRA, called on lawmakers to produce a “comprehensive” gun bill, and squelched prospects for a GOP-backed concealed carry proposal as part of a broader gun package.”

      “I like taking the guns early, like in this crazy man’s case that just took place in Florida … to go to court would have taken a long time,” Trump said at a meeting with lawmakers on school safety and gun violence.
      “Take the guns first, go through due process second,” Trump said.”

        Minor69er at it again. Did it actually happen? Nope. Will it happen if your beloved democrats get in office again? Yep.

        When you learn how to put a stock on an ar come back and say something.

        1. avatar Miner49er says:

          Why would I want to put a stock on an AR?

          SIG braces are so much more functional.
          Mine has a handy top sling attachment that gives a great over the shoulder carry from there to the rear leg of the front sight.

          Now, putting a buffer tube on an AR is a bit more interesting, but I do have the appropriate strap wrench.

        2. avatar California Richard says:

          Pistol braces typically attach to carbine style buffer tubes, which don’t reqire a wrench. You do need a proprietary castle nut wrench for the nut that jams the buffer tube and retention plate in place. … unless of course you’re using a pistol brace on a full stock buffer tube for some reason? …. I dunno, you say the weirdest s#it sometimes Miner.

        3. avatar Miner49er says:

          Interesting.

          Well I can tell you, if you wish to put a rear sling attachment on an AR pistol, you must remove the buffer tube with a strap wrench.

          Although as I pointed out, I think the top sling attachment on the brace gives one a much better geometry for over the shoulder carry.

        I hope to see a change in the Democrat’s idiotic and emotion-based policies on guns as more of their traditional voters become gun owners and realize they like being able to be their own first responders.

        If the Dems stopped alienating half the country with their gun confiscation horse shit, they might stop losing elections.

        Then they might be able to drag ‘this country, kicking and screaming, in to providing healthcare for it’s citizens, reigning in some of the destructive anarcho-capitalist policies that have all but destroyed the middle class, and other changes that would address the actual root causes of “gun violence” instead of pandering to hysterical Karens with AWBs, et al.

        1. avatar Mark Kelly's Diapered Drooling Ventriloquist's Dummy says:

          You will NEVER witness the Dems change their stance on firearms, they are wedded to the idea of stripping everyone but themselves, their bodyguards, their close pals, and the government of guns, it’s how they plan on instituting their nation destroying policies, armed citizens can resist, the disarmed have no option but acquiesce and comply.

          Like abortion, reparations, amnesty, and a host of other policies the DemoMarxists champion “gun control” (prohibition on civilian firearm ownership) is here to stay, it is and always be a cornerstone of their platform. Why? Because those that they rely on for campaign contributions (Soros/BloomBOIG and others of their ilk) demand it.

      Some percentage of new gun owners will become 2A devotees. Its certainly not a 1 for 1, but it’s definitely an addition to our side.

      1. avatar jwm says:

        This. We would be nuts to expect each and every new owner to join us. But some will and every one that does is a win.

        1. avatar Dude says:

          And some of the new owners will still be okay with doing away with those scary black rifles. They got their handgun or shotgun, so they think that’s all people need.

        2. avatar strych9 says:

          “And some of the new owners will still be okay with doing away with those scary black rifles…”

          So what? They already thought that way so it’s not like any of this is a losing proposition for POTG.

          Exactly where are you getting your information? Some people really need to get up out of their basements, take a shower, put on some clothes and get outside. How in the world do you think the AR platform became America’s most popular rifle? You’re attaching 1980 “wisdom” to 2020 reality. Seriously.

          If you or anyone thinks there is a “war on Cops” now, you ain’t seen nothing yet when the government orders the confiscation of guns. It will be “open season” on anyone wearing any government uniform.

        7. avatar Miner49er says:

          “avowed Communists like “Miner49er”.”

          Not me, true communism is inconsistent with human nature. Communism didn’t work for the pilgrims at Plymouth rock end it is often corrupted into authoritarianism.

          Representative democratcies, also known as republics, are more of my preferred governance.

      2. avatar Doug Crouse says:

        Ask the government how many people turned in or destroyed their bumpfire stocks and I think you’ll get a pretty close approximation of how many would turn in their guns.

          so, “about a dozen” then.

    2. avatar GunnyGene says:

      People tend to change their minds very quickly when it concerns something they value is threatened – like freedom for example.

    3. avatar Victoria Illinois says:

      They will turn in their guns if the government threatens to take away everything they own. They will threaten to give the kids to “child services dept”. Their house, car, small bank acct. That’s what they do when they suspect you of dealing drugs. You have to prove you’re innocent. It’s called Asset Forieiture. Ask the hot dog/taco stand owner who doesn’t take credit cards. They notice he does big cash deposits at the bank. The feds come in and accuse him of drug dealing. How do you prove a negative, when you can’t afford a lawyer? It’s happened in California. Probably everywhere else, too.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        That’s a double edged sword and a damned dangerous game.

        Tell people you’re going to take their children and some will cave. Others will retaliate.

        1/10th of gun owners retaliate and they’ve wiped out all the LE and CPS people multiple times over, like 9x or more.

        I really wish people would step back from the ledge we are break dancing on but that’s probably too much to ask.

      No, the problem is the sheepish people who do turn in their legally owned guns protected by the Constitution of the United States, giving up their right to own a gun because communists liberals tell them they have too.

  5. avatar tdiinva says:

    I doubt it. Irish Democracy maybe but the feeble response of America’s gun owners to an attack on the civil order does not make me optimistic about active resistance. Too many gun owners seem more concerned about gun handling skills than supporting some one who took a stand .

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/read-the-declaration-of-independence
    Things like this may happen in big city Liberal bastions. Not so likely in small town America. I’ve had the conversation about firearms confiscation with a number of law enforcement personnel in my area. Number one they are against it but, more importantly they understand. That living in a town of 25,000 and a county of 39,000 everybody knows their families and where they live. They are smart enough to know that any attempt to enforce a wholesale confiscation of firearms would result in severe consequences not only to them but, also their loved ones. Those are the tactics that will be necessary if such as act is attempted regardless of the local. Not only against law enforcement but, politicians as well. There will be no quarter expected and no quarter given. If anything was learned from Charlie in SEA it was. Everyone not on your side is the enemy and must be eliminated with Extreme Prejudice.

    Because Jim Crow Gun Control is a deranged agenda rooted in racism and genocide it must be stopped.
    The days when some murderous nut misuses a firearm and every gun owning law abiding citizen pays for it by being forced to forfeit gun rights needs to be stopped cold.
    Gun owners living in fear of what some punk with a gun may do across town or in another state must end. Knee jerk politicians need to pull their heads out of their behinds and hold the line for Gun Rights no matter what.
    First and foremost Jim Crow Gun Control is an agenda rooted in racism and genocide. It is past time for some politician to stand on the floor of Congress and unmask Gun Control.

    1. avatar Mark says:

      I bet you never heard of the Union League gang gun violence that predated Jim Crow. During “Reconstruction,” and military occupation, the Union League armed Freedmen who went around terrorizing southern civilians who were not “allowed” to have arms. They also terrorized Freedmen to did not vote for the Radical Republicans. This resulted in the proliferation of the KKK.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        I would certainly be interested in hearing about how the union league terrorized civilians in the south.

        I can tell you, the union league is a Republican organization that I support.

        “In the early organization of Alabama’s Republican party, the league also functioned as an informal caucus of the “Radicals,” and its leaders were prominent in drafting the Reconstruction constitution of November 1867. However, in 1868, the terrorist Ku Klux Klan group and its offshoots effectively shut down the organization, assaulting or killing several prominent activists, including Daniel H. Bingham of Athens. In Sumter County alone, state representative George Houston and several other black league leaders were shot, and others, including representative Richard Burke, were killed. In all, at least 15 league activists met violent deaths between 1868 and 1871.
        In this climate, the league’s Republican sponsors concluded that the secret organization had served its purpose, and it was formally abolished in Alabama in 1869. Vestiges of the organization survived locally, and it continued as a paper organization at the national level for decades. Though transient, the Union League recruited vast numbers of freedmen into the Republican party, and it also fomented lasting changes in the plantation system in Alabama and elsewhere. ”

        1. avatar Garrison Hall says:

          It was called “Reconstruction” for a purpose, Miner. Some of us know our history. When you know history it is kinda fun to see just how propaganda is based on lies. Of course American colleges and universities haven’t been teaching much history for a couple of decades now.

      Yawn. You’ve said it 1,000 times here. Is that the extent of your knowledge on gun control? Someone shared a facebook meme and now you know Jim Crowe wanted to keep the guns away from black folks? It’s either this, or some random trump shit. C’mon debbie… find another talking point.

  17. avatar Ross says:

    Personally I think the American gun owner would fall into three categories if confiscation ever went through.

    A, those that meekly surrender their firearms and lose them for life.

    B, Those that hide their Firearms and spend the rest of their life looking over their shoulder.

    C, those that fight.

    Like the Frog boiling in the kettle, much like all all the other incremental Firearm Infringements enacted since 1934, any Firearm Confiscation will probably not happen all at once. Much like Gun Control in the various Blue States with bans, special licensing, features-tests for Firearms, and “May-Issue” carry mandates, these things were pushed through without any meaningful resistance,,,,,no the “law-abiding” Gun Owners will just tighten their belts and weather onward until the next inevitable infringement with nothing more violent than a bitter attitude. The recent riots and civil disturbances were mainly enacted by Youth who probably had marginal employment, limited material possessions, and little responsibility to offspring or parents,,, thus they have nothing to loose anyway. Not so the employed individual with a career, established home and parental responsibilities. If the Government enacts Civilian Firearm Disarmament these established folks (if nothing else for the sake of their future and that of their children) will probably be the first to comply. https://www.alloutdoor.com/2016/08/31/democrats-will-never-confiscate-guns-instead-youll-hand/?fbclid=IwAR0uBxwYiCartKpsk7xVrYkG0CyB4OPV2KoSUFwBgIIU6pGc9_wXYr-BVZU

  23. avatar James Campbell says:

    The intelligent gun grabbing politicians understand the MAJOR problem faced when attempting a “buyback” and/or “confiscation”.
    Most firearm owners will refuse the “buyback” entirely. Leaving the vast majority of firearms still in the hands of their BoRs protected owners.
    This would then leads to the inevitable “confiscation” attempt.
    How many LEO/Military Personnel are REALLY willing to die while enforcing Constitution/BoR violating policy/laws put forth by tyrants? No way of knowing for sure, but FAR more patriotic gun owners will be willing to die in the name of protecting their God given rights as defined by the Founding Fathers and the associated documents.
    As for the elected leaders, lawmakers, LEO, Military, or WHOEVER supports and/or attempts the confiscation?
    They will be viewed as traitors and enemies of the state, to be delt with accordingly.
    The Constitution, Bill of Rights, and Federalist Papers are the Supreme Documents of the U.S. of A.
    Those looking to subvert this reality will just water the “Liberty Tree”.
    Happy 4th of July Patriots, may you have an ample supply of quality ammo (in all owned calibers), AND a sufficient quantity of high capacity magazines to hold most of it. Just as it should be in America.

      I believe your estimation is mostly correct, regarding southern Democrats.

  25. avatar JSperry says:

    No one is going to confiscate any guns. Who would do that? The Police? They’ve be disrespected and abandoned by EVERY politician with a microphone in front of them.
    No, cops aren’t gonna do that bidding EVER. Now, leftist and antifa? That’s all they got. And that ain’t much. How about the UN? Blue helmets make easy targets.

    They got nothing and they know it.

    1. avatar Jimmy Beam says:

      They are going to create a national police force. The members of this force in your community WILL NOT be from your community.

      1. avatar tdiinva says:

        You are not thinking out of the box. The Democrats have no need of a national police force. The will do what Chavez and Maduro do. They will enlist gangs to keep the population in line like they already do in the ghetto. By outsourcing enforcement to gangs they can deflect blame away from themselves.

      2. avatar Garrison Hall says:

        If you talk to people who are serious about “transforming” America in the ways the progressive-fasicst left dreams of, they freely acknowledge that to do something even close to what is proposed will require the institution of a police state. The hard left knows perfectly well that once started at least 50 percent of the American population will openly oppose their new environmental/social/financial agendas. There is simply no way to accomplish those multiple political agendas without creating the kind of top-to-bottom intrusion and coercion that is only attainable with a police state.

  26. avatar Ghost Who Walks says:

    All gun owners: You will make a Plan Ahead Plan, so at a moment’s notice you will know which government actors and officials you may “interact with” if any gun confiscation actions occur. Local MSM folks will also be listed on your plan, as well as other influencers, as your knowledge and wisdom suggest — for example, Superintendents of schools and board members.

    The plan might include contact names, email, and work and home locations, so if your email doesn’t make it to a target, you may knock on their door and give them a piece of your mind or walk back and forth in front of their home or office with a sandwich sign.

    This strategy and Planning Ahead For Success is guaranteed to increase the success of any post-Act lobbying and networking you might want to engage in with local communists, globalists, statists, and gun grabbers.

    This is a wonderful way to keep things all civil, respectful, safe, and friendly, while avoiding unpleasantness, violence, and unrest.

    MAGA!

  27. avatar Jimmy Beam says:

    The only reason they want to defund the police is then they can introduce a national police force. Whatever members of that force that will be in your community will not be FROM your community. That way there will be no ties to family or friends that can complicate decisions made by law enforcement officers. This is how Canada’s national police force, the RCMP, works.

    They will come after the guns after they stack the supreme court. Count on it. Then we’ll see how much of the testosterone flowing in the comments section is real or not.

    1. avatar ColoradoKid says:

      I would hope that when we POTG see this coming we will have the foresight to build from 80%, hide, and hoard arms and ammo. They can’t confiscate what they don’t know about. A lot of us have already started.

      1. avatar Jump says:

        Negative if you gotta hide them then you need to already use them…

    2. avatar James Campbell says:

      “…..Then we’ll see how much of the testosterone flowing in the comments section is real or not.”

      Testosterone?
      Sexist much?
      To what do you attribute a female soldier questioning an order that violates citizens Constitutional rights? Her regular testosterone injections?
      Patriotism has NOTHING to do with a hormone.
      Also, the leftist gun grabbers are WELL aware the III%ers are NOT their biggest hurdle to clear during a confiscation, not by a long shot.

  29. avatar Geoff "Guns. LOTS of guns..." PR says:

    They aren’t stupid enough to announce they are taking them. First, they will pass laws ‘registering’ them.

    And if you are in possession of an un-registered gun…

    Announcing registration immediately drives them underground. You won’t be able to go to a public range without the risk its registration won’t be checked. If pulled over by the cops, you run the risk they will check it.

    How many folks do you know that have an un-registered machine gun? That’s the future that awaits us…

    1. avatar Ranger Rick says:

      There are tens of thousands of “unregistered” full autos out there that have now passed through multiple generations. They are never going to be voluntarily turned over.

      1. avatar MGD says:

        You are correct, Rick. I know of some.

    2. avatar MGD says:

      My thoughts exactly. I could see the police staking out the range too and finding a minor traffic violation as an excuse to pull you over. The Supreme Court, specifically that POS Roberts, will have ruled that the police have PC to search your vehicle because you left a range. I’d do what a friend of mine did who moved to NYC: he took his huge collection of firearms with him. He, after jumping through a ton of hoops, registered his shotgun, but not the rest of his guns. He kept the rest in a very safe place in case he ever had a DGU because he knew the police would search his flat.

    3. avatar Tired of the bs says:

      Will Not Comply.

  30. avatar grumpster says:

    Heck even a vast majority New Zealand gun owners did not turn in their evil black rifles when told it was mandatory and big fines not too. Even Australia has had a number of “last chance” gun buybacks. States that have banned EBRs have had a abysmal turn in/registration rate. Why would anyone expect Americans to be much more complaint, especially when trust of government and police to protect you is near an all time low?

  31. avatar MGD says:

    I laughed when they banned bump stocks. I’m keeping all 10 of mine. F them. BTW, ATF I’m talking about my fingers.

    All the Internet Rambos here will meekly bow your heads in submission at the mere sight of a government costume, quietly gather up all your guns, hand them over, shut the door, sit down in your easy chair, start sobbing and explosively shit your pants.

    1. avatar Chris T in KY says:

      Your wishful statement does not hold up to well to the reality of the nation now. The government doesn’t support its own police forces. In Democrat controlled cities. The “blue flu” is spreading. There is no one coming to help you on the other end of that 911 call you just made. Or the one you will make in the future.

    1. avatar GS650G says:

      And 1 percent will be a million people that won’t. Think about that problem.

    2. avatar MLee says:

      Seriously? 99%? I think your guesstimate is 100% exaggerated. When they say “hand them in” there’s going to be a nation-wide collective FUCK YOU. Don’t underestimate that.
      It’s never going to happen and I’d never comply EVER.

  43. avatar binder says:

    Everyone here just does not get it, they are not going to come door to door for firearms. They will pass another AWB and you just will not be able to buy anything new. We will see $200 pre ban magazines and no new AR forged lowers. Hell, if they are smart, they will ban the selling of uppers and barrels. If they ban transfers most will not sell as for most it will not be worth the risk. If you actually go out and shoot IDPA of USPA, you will need to modify your mags or get new ones as no one wants to risk having the events banned as well.
