    Extremist POV?

    Just curious. Would it be extremist to point out that all the victories of the pro gun movement could be un done and canned at the stoke of the president's pen when putting the various executive orders into effect that would turn the country into a FEMA run totalitarian government over night?

    Should that happen under cover of a nationally declared emergency what do we do then?

    Extreme? Yes.

    Possible? Yes

    Likely?

    If you have to ask "What then?", you have not been properly briefed.

    Ahh, the "if you have to ask" response... Somewhat funny, kind of quippy, possibly improperly used in this case, but at any rate pretty much useless.

    If he was properly briefed, why indeed would he be here asking?

    If Obama would overreach so far, I think a paraphrase of Andrew Jackson would be in order, "President Obama has his Executive Order, now let's see him enforce it."

    I hope and pray that it would never come to that.

    Thumbs down

    If we can't discuss it then the response should it ever come to the situation I relate will be un organized and resistance will fail. I think that is my only point.

    Paradox: Your neighbor is a cop. Your neighbor is ordered to take his neighbor's guns.
    "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it." - Thomas Jefferson.

    "Better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent suffer" - English jurist William Blackstone.
    It is AFAIK original to me. Compromise is failure on the installment plan, particularly when dealing with so intractable an opponent as ignorance. - Nightmare
