    Let's hypothetically say the government bans any and all firearms. Police and military members are given the orders to go door-to-door and seize weapons.

    Would the majority of them obey orders or ultimately defend the constitution?


    This isn't some conspiracy thread and I don't want anyone to start arguing over whether or not this could or ever will happen. I'm just curious what you guys (especially active or former LEO/military) think.

    Most cops and other civilian law enforcement would obey orders. Some cops and other civilian law enforcement wouldn't. Military would have far more reservations.

    Can we talk about a hypothetical doomsday meteor strike now?

    Sure. Do you think if the meteor hits a predominantly minority neighborhood, it would be Bush's fault?

    urban cops in the northeast, midwest and left coast will do their best.....most others wont even entertain the thought.

    the military? depends if they send out the ones whove gotten morality waivers to join or not.

    People who join and stay in the military tend to be those who follow orders even when they question the orders given to them by authority. This is reinforced by training.

    EDIT TO ADD: This is an essential trait for members of a combat unit. It, like almost any good thing, can be used for immoral ends.

    If we are going to have a hypothetical fantasy conversation couldn't it be the one where I bought a bunch of Microsoft stock on day one and now reside on a medium sized island in the south pacific named Bruce at where some very scantily clad girl is serving me my third tropical drink with a little umbrella of the morning on the lounge chair on the sandy beach?

    How about the hotties in the Israeli Defense Force come here and go door to door and offer "military action" in exchange for all firearms.

    We'd be disarmed in about a day! And we'd like it.

    Sure did. All the retarded couch-commandos came out of the woodwork, talking about how they'd shout "WOLVERINES", while attempting to take on a highly trained Infantry platoon.....:upeyes:

    I swear, I think a lot of these guys jerk off to the thought of being able to take on the .MIL.......

    Camel jockeys who wipe their ass with their hands have killed plenty. You think Americans couldn't?

    Who is the US military made up of again?

    If such a strange situation happens, there have to be alot of hiring.

    The "turn over" rate would be vey high...... :whistling:

    No. What I'm saying is all of you are idiots for even thinking its a remote possibility. The "us vs. Them" mentality is strong here..... :banghead:

    Tell that to the civilians at Kent State.
    And at Waco.
    And at the Pullman Railroad Company.
    And in New Orleans post-Katrina.

    Those are 4 off the top of my head. If I Google'fu it I could come up with more.

    Someone posted the numbers is a similar thread and by their estimates, it would take something like seventeen years for every firearm in the US to be confiscated. And that was based on every cop,agent,soldier, etc. going door-to-door 24 hours a day with no sleep, bathroom, doughnuts, etc. HH
