"Civil War? Just how much chance do these racist malcontents think they are going to have against the military might of the United States?"

Leaving aside the ignorant ad hominem attack of calling us "racists," your analysis and historical sense is fundamentally flawed Who is it, do you think, that makes up the bulk of the military tip-of-the-spear units? Why it is our sons (and in lesser numbers daughters). When issued an illegal and unconstitutional order which way will their guns face? Toward their families or the regime that orders them to attack their families?

The way this will play out, if in the unlikely event that Obama & Co. get their fervent wishes of a true ban on semi-autos and standard capacity magazines (and private sales as well) is that our side will disobey, resist and flaunt the law. As the author says, this will make the regime so nuts that they will come to attack such resisters a la Waco and Ruby Ridge. The only thing is, they had their free Waco in the 90s, without consequences to the raid planners and politicians. It will not be free this time.

Kindly study the topic of 4th Generation Warfare, which targets the enemy decision making elites, not the military forces or the populace, in order to destroy their will to fight. Bill Clinton, in his frustration at the Serbs in 1999, changed the rules of engagement to include the political, media and intellectual leadership of his enemy, sending precision guided weapons into their homes as well as Serbian Radio and Television.

Now, imagine an American civil war fought along the same rules.

To sum up, be careful what you wish for, you may get it. On the other hand, we're not telling you what to do nor are we trying to take any of your liberty or property at the threat of your lives as you are doing, in your ignorance of the Law of Unintended Consequences, to us.

All we require is for your overweening collectivist "nanny state" to back up out of our faces and leave us the hell alone.
