Your intentions don’t matter; what matters is the consequences of your actions

Note:

This is mostly addressed to the people conducting a coordinated “shaming” campaign against the Congressional Representatives who voted against the latest Federal Gun Control legislation (but the rest of you gun grabbers can learn a thing or two here so pay attention). You people should be ashamed of yourselves, and you’d do well to pay attention to the truths behind this rant. If you push this nation into a bloody revolution, you will be held to account for your actions.

As the man once said, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

In light of everything that has gone on since the Sandy Hook shooting it’s patently obvious that the people who are pushing gun bans and restrictions in the US have no idea what they are fucking with.

For the last four years guns shops have been doing brisk business, selling tens of thousands of firearms a month (to law abiding citizens), with frequent ammo shortages in all of the major calibers. For the past 12 months one of the maybe 10-12 guns shops in my city of ~600,000 people has had a stack of 4473’s (this is the paperwork for buying a firearm from a dealer) that is 10-12″ thick sitting behind their counter (this is only 10 days worth of purchases where I live).

For the past three months that stack of 4473’s has been two 14-18″ stacks. Magazines holding more than 10 rounds are pretty much gone as soon as the boxes are opened. Magazine rebuild kits are gone as soon as the box is opened. Ammo is gone for pretty much all calibers. There are maybe 10-15 rifles of any kind or caliber in stock at any given time (18 months ago this was more like 150-250).

That’s one gun shop, in one city, in one State. I’ve talked to a lot of people in different places in this country, and from what I can tell this is the rule rather than the exception in nearly all of the US right now.

This is not a country stocking up on things that may get banned. This is a country preparing for war.

If these fuckers keep pushing it, the unintended consequences will be thousands (if not hundreds of thousands or millions) of dead Americans, and a completely different US than the one that we all know today.

It will be a sad day when Americans are shooting Americans, and I’ll shed tears for it. But I won’t shed any tears for the fuckheads who started this bullshit.

Let’s see if any of those aforementioned fuckheads have gamed this scenario out at all. Let’s say that one of the literally dozens (if not hundreds) of proposed pieces of firearm restriction legislation pisses off enough people to the point where we see the shooting start. It’ll take a while to get started, and once started (which I fear is a very real possibility for the first time in my life), it will not stop until the people who started this shit (the gun grabbers pushing their agenda) are held accountable for it, or gun owners are exterminated.

By my best estimates there are about 800,000 law enforcement officers in this country. At best (every reserve active) we have maybe 2 million soldiers in our armed forces. Let’s call that 3 million (which isn’t accurate, because there is literally no possible way to get all of them in the US at the same time without just pulling out all the stops and leaving the rest of the world to fend for themselves).

There are 600,000 people with hunting licenses in Wisconsin alone. Every one of those 600,000 have experience stalking and ambushing live targets. I’m not saying they’d all be on the same side (no more than all LEO’s and soldiers would) in a second civil war, which is what we’re actually talking about here.

Aside from the large number of LEO’s and soldiers who will never fire a shot at a US civilian over this shit (which should be pretty plain in light of the dozens of Sheriffs and Sheriff’s associations who have sent in letters to our “legislators” flat out telling them that they will not be enforcing any new gun bans), and many of who will defect taking their “military grade” weapons with them, plain old US citizens can field a force estimated to be between 3 and 6 million at any given time.

That’s only three to six percent of the estimated 100 million gun owners in the US. Let’s go low and call it 3 percent. 3 million insurgents without uniforms or identifiers.

Looking at those raw numbers, it seems like it would be pretty even, but it wouldn’t be. The vast majority of soldiers and LEO’s would not side with the government. Even if they didn’t side with the rebels, that’s still gonna be a huge blow to the gun grabbers. Let’s be pessimistic and say that only 25% of soldiers and LEO’s would refuse to side with the governement. That leaves about 2.3 million government forces.

That three percent number I used for the rebels wasn’t just pulled from thin air; three percent is the number most often quoted when discussing the number of colonial combatants fielded during the American revolution. But that was 3 percent of the total population. If we use that number we’re talking 9+ million rebels against at most 3 million government troops.

If an armed rebellion were to happen here, it’d be months (best case scenario) before things start to normal out.

In the interim, what do you suppose daily life is going to look like in this country? Hell ONE ex cop kills three people in LA (only two were cops), and LAPD starts shooting up any vehicle that vaguely matches the description without even bothering to identify that there were two elderly women in one of them.

Two guys set off a couple of bombs and shot one cop in Boston, and the police lock down the entire town (4 towns actually), shred the 4th Amendment, and start doing door to door raids to find the remaining bomber. Think about that for just a second, two guys completely shut down a major US city for days with a couple of IEDs and one gun.

Can you imagine what it will be like if hundreds or even thousands of people started putting down the politicians, media talking heads, and LEO’s pushing this shit?

You know cops aren’t going to be responding to jack shit after the first couple of emergency calls that turn into ambushes.

In just my tiny little city of ~600,000 people, law enforcement estimates that there are approximately 35,000 active gang members. Expand that to the entire county of just about a million people and they estimate there are 70,000 active gang members. We have (and I’m being really generous here) maybe 5,000 Law Enforcement Officers in the area. That’s 15:1 odds against the police.

You think those gang members are just gonna sit around when they see that cops aren’t responding to calls? What do you suppose will happen once some of them start to figure out that “Warlord” has a nicer ring to it than Gang Leader? Now add to that the proliferation of Mexican Drug Cartels operating in the US right now. A sincere heartfelt thanks to the ATF and Eric Holder for handing them 2000+ rifles (the semiautomatic “weapon of war” variety rifles that the gun grabbers are trying so hard to ban).

So suddenly we’re living in a Mad Max movie.

By the time we get that mess cleaned up, our economy is going to be in a shambles (not that it’s real healthy just now anyway). So the US is going to look quite a bit different than it does today. You think North Korea (or any of a dozen other despot run shitholes) won’t take the opportunity to start some shit while we’re busy in our own backyard? You think some jihadists won’t figure out that it would be a good time to play their little games?

If you don’t see how easily that could happen, you don’t know enough about the situation. Look at what happened in New Orleans after Katrina, and that was just one city with the undivided attention of the entire government.

Is this what you want? Is this what you had in mind when you set out to “save the children” by banning firearms Ms. Feinstein?

I’m not prescient, so I can’t predict how it will happen in detail, but I know (with the limited intel that I have access to) that all of those things are likely. Not just possible, probable.

Not something I want to see in my lifetime. So how about this; let’s just stop trying to punish law abiding citizens for the actions of criminals? Seems much simpler to me.

    I stumbled across this site (trying to find info on people fending off dog attacks so I can teach my kid) and found some rather interesting content. I actually started running number like you did to figure out how many people could be assembled in certain similar situations, but I didn’t get as far as you due to time constraints. Thanks for this write-up.
