If the government is notified every time a gun changes ownership, then they would easily have the abilities to create a registry of gun owners. Even if they claim they would never actually build such a database. Does anyone actually believe them when they say that?
I grant that's true. Now my question...does it actually matter? Are your personal firearms actually going to make ANY DIFFERENCE if the government goes full-retard-totalitarian? The idea that they would be effective against the military now is ludicrous.
There was a time when they would. I don't believe they could now.
So the answer is to just let them take away all the guns?
Boy, you jumped to full-retard quick. Where did I say anything of the sort, Night Strike? Would you like to discuss the issue rationally, or would you like to continue with your terror-induced coma for a while first?

No it doesn't. Please explain how my response demonstrates any such thing, Night Strike.

See, here's what you don't get. I know that. I was in the military, and there's no question in my mind that a portion of the military would go against such orders. That being said, it STILL DOESN'T MATTER. That military equipment is what would be necessary. As I said before, the idea that your personal firearms are going to be effective against the military using military equipment is ludicrous.
