    If it came to that, I’d do like the Democrats do and hire armed security.

    I like my guns, but I love my family.

    I don’t plan on watching my little girl grow up from a jail cell.

    I would however, start training in knife fighting and start buying crossbows.

    I didn't survive Fallujah just to end up getting killed over gun confiscation.
    I'll fight up until we lose all legislation. After that, I care more about seeing my kids grow up than having my guns.

    I am looking at the end of my life. What kind of man do I plan to be and be remembered for.

    We all die. The question, however, is how do we live.

    I might be paranoid but I think the wrong answer could contribute to being red flagged.

    One of the biggest surprises of my life is that I lived to retire.
    My Wife and I knew that flying was most certainly going to kill me at an early time. It came close many times.

    So, if I freely put my life on the line for a job, I damned sure would put it on the line for something as important as our right to defend ourselves.

    As is always the case, a relatively small number of people will carry the load for those that will not stand.

    Everyone has to make their own decisions in life, then live with those decisions.

    If it comes down to: 'From my cold dead hands,' We've lost anyway.

    That's one thing I always held against 'Charlton' Heston, at that NRA convention. It should have been an AR or AK he was holding up.

    My brother gave me one of those cold dead hands baseball caps for my birthday once. I promptly hung it on a nail in the barn and let the mud dobbers fill it full of nest.

    One day my brother came to visit and said, 'Didn't you ever wear that hat?'

    I replied, 'No that's a looser's attitude!' The time to fight is now, before we loose our rights.

    NO MORE COMPROMISE. We've already compromised way too much. The Founding Fathers must be rolling over in their graves.

    You're right; it was a revolutionary war.
    Lemme know if an actual war breaks out here at home.

    There wasn't a "I'm not stupid enough to broadcast my intentions on a public site that is regularly data-mined by the Feds" option, so I didn't vote. :eric:

    Lots of big brass balls until you're looking at a gun or five, muzzle end, and face imprisonment. It'll happen very slowly over many years and I most certainly won't live long enough to see it happen. A civil war over gun rights (or anything else) isn't going to happen in this country, either. No matter how many of us might gather up to fight whatever we fight, any decent sized police force, not to mention the U.S. military, would knock us out of action in days, if not hours. Reality.

    ETA: Gun rights have expanded dramatically over my lifetime, all 71 years of it.

    The older I get, the less craps I give about following rules that I believe are morally wrong.

    I would fight to the best of my ability.
