    Secession ? really? nothing sparks a civil war like trying to secede from the United States...there isnt ONE state including Texas that would last 5 minutes in trying to secede...You cant secede without an Army or even a leader, none of which any state has...trying to secede gives the Feds exactly what you dont want them to have, the impetus to fire upon the American public

    I think it is funny when people assume that the whole military will side with the government if there was an insurgency. Being all volunteers from the same general public I would think that there would exist the same divide there also. Another thought is that as the government wages war against the citizens it will need outside help as it will be waging war against its biggest supporters. Dose our government have any friends that it doesn't buy with our money? We would be the laughing stock of the world.

    And homeland security is surely watching this thread with some of the order that key words have been placed.. welcome to rtf!

    Yes it did. But, then a state has an inherent right to protect itself against insurrection. My point is, if it is a rebellion of arms against a modern state, it is unlikely to succeed.

    lol... Yes I have a file,I am a junior to my father who had some clearances, and I have worked in some federal buildings. They have photos, finger prints, many references, and who knows what else.

    Funny story, I was working in the US Marshals offices and on the wall was a most wanted photo of a man who had a eerie resemblance to me. I walked up to the desk and pointed out the picture and asked why they wanted me? Gun was drawn and tool box dropped, we all had a laugh at that.

    Secession is very peaceful actually. The shots fired upon fort sumter were in self defense because the North kept stocking up supplies and ammunition in it for what looked like an offensive through the charleston harbor. The last straw was when a large ship that was posing a a civilian ship was found out to be carrying munitions and troops was headed to sumter. Lincoln wanted a reason to attack the south (not unlike FDR and the japanese) becasue most folks in the north did not care about secession.

    I doubt if a state seceeded today, that there would be another civil war. A message needs to be sent to washington that we need to get back before 1861 in our mindset with powerful states and limited government. I think the only way the Feds will understand this is if they stop getting money from us.

    We might own shadow guns from the past. But recent purchases have been recorded. If as many fear, a round up happens...these most recent records will be the ones accessed.
    If the ATF, the FBI, your local LE or NG shows up and demands your recorded firearms, will you fire on them?
    Will your AR match the fire power of an Apache helicopter? Or even your Sheriffs Dept?

    Maybe it's time to start electing people who do the will of the people..JD

    All guns are shadow guns unless you live in a State that Registers all firearms.

    Example; I buy a Rifle from Academy this morning. At lunch time a friend likes it so much he offers me the price of the gun plus $200. I sell it to him. I no longer have the gun so who cares what paper work says I do.

    Basically as long as Private Firearms Transactions continue to be legal, saying "I sold it to John down the street" will continue to be a valid excuse of why you no longer have that firearm.

    Now if they are attempting to do away with this by passing the 'Private backgrounds check'. BUT! it still won't matter b/c they have no way to know who owns what and when. Plus there's no law against giving a gun away.

    Either way these are things I would consider completely unconstitutional and would feel no moral obligation to abide by. Sadly as a long LAW ABDING Citizen, it seems as if the time is approaching where we will be forced to become slaves to the law are have to step outside the box in order to protect ourselves.

    The Private Background Check sounds like a good idea, but it's just another step towards identifying who has what. Another strike at privacy under the guise of safety.




    Tell me again how that T.J. thought that the 2nd Amendment was for Hunting and Personal Defense.
