If the government decides to take your guns, they will take your guns - "cold dead fingers" comes to mind. However, in the case of 99.9999% of the people saying things like this, as soon as half a dozen armed police show up, they'd be taking them to the guns and helping to load them in the truck. Directly resisting when they show up at your house can only end with you dead or in prison. "Live to fight another day" is a more realistic philosophy when there is no way to win.
The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing … more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature [with] no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men …. John Stuart Mill
