What is going to happen ...

What is going to happen if Obama orders the military to fire on civilians because they don't like the way he is trying to change the second amendment?

I have no doubt that the generals will obey orders. Their upbringing and mindset won't allow them to do anything else.

As Lt. Col. Dave Grossman said "Sociopaths make great generals" ... or something along those lines.

Fire on citizens because of a difference in opinion? I don't see it happening.

Some will do that and I don't expect many of them would do that.

Obviously the OP is talking about a disobedience of a final order to 'the people' by police or military to lay weapons down.

What would happen? People would die.

However, it didn't happen in England, Canada, Australia, etc. because 'the people' choose to follow the law and laid down their weapons (turned them in - whatever).

Here in the United States it may not go so easy on the government and 'the people' may not just go along with the orders from their masters...
