FROM QUORA, by a troll, obviously looking for clicks
*** begin quote ***
Why can’t we create an agency to specifically collect guns from gun owners in America? It will consist of 1000 members and will make an announcement for every house. It will ask the owners to come out with their hands up if there’s any hesitation.
*** end quote ***
Just out of curiosity, where do the families of these 1000 Gun Confiscation agents live? Do you think they will survive. Read that novel “Unintended Consequences” by John Ross (if you can find and afford a copy). A cadre can start taking out family members and see how long any agency lasts.
I think the reason that the powers that be want this book scarce is that it gives a “how to manual” for how to defeat the US big Gooferment. Killing by random unconnected patriots in a decentralized fashion would make Viet Nam or Afghanistan look like a cake walk. Never mind all the gun owners; how about all the other patriots. Talk about real ugly real fast. Once people have nothing to live for, it can get real dangerous for the ruling class real fast.
“There are no dangerous weapons; there are only dangerous men.” — character Sergeant Charles Zim in Starship Troopers, a book Robert A. Heinlein, author
“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .” — Alexander Solzhenitsyn
