By the time the poor souls that have to actually go door to door make it to me all mine will have been lost in a boating accident.
Can you imagine the turnover rate for that job? How many would be “retired” early? If not already happening that would be the spark for CW 2. Our rank and file military won’t support (at least all the ones I know) and most of not 3/4 of police will not. That leaves boot licking feds.
It's always a case of losing one's firearms in a "boating accident" isn't it? Yes, yes, I know it's a FR inside joke but it wore thin and old some 10-12 years ago.
Can't you and others think of some other way that the "firearms" were lost? Lack of imagination, I suppose.
If a Hitler-like government takes over, do you think your little azz will be saved by telling the storm troopers some cockaminny tale like that?
Let's be blunt. If it comes to that it will be time to be using them.
"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?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward."
