Here's something to ponder during your morning coffee.
As of 2013, there are roughly 317 Million people living in the US. This includes infants and and seniors over the age of 70. 317 Million. At the same time, there are over 357 Million "civilian" firearms in the US. There are more guns than people in the US. In the last three years the sale of firearms grew 400% from 2013 to 2016, due in part to the greatest firearm salesman in the history of the US. President Obama.
Even assuming that the police do join in the confiscation, gun owners outnumber ALL law enforcement by at least 265:1. This is accounting for ALL FBI, CIA, Secret Service, ALL federal law enforcement and local state/city/county POST certified. This also accounts for the civilian US Population from ages 15-70.
To balance the odds, the US will have to recall EVERY US combat soldier from EVERY branch of military, from EVERY continent, to converge on the US. We would still have the advantage of at least 70:1 ratio.
With the power of the internet, forum boards, and other social media outlets, it's very easy to coordinate a citizen defensive group. It can be done in a lot shorter time than it will take the military to recall every active duty US combat veteran in the world.
The numbers just don't support a national firearm confiscation. Now, there are those (spineless east/west coast citizens) that will "give up" their rights of ownership for certain "look type" guns. They call them assault rifles. I call it the "Modern Musket".
The casualties will be rough on both sides, and the outcome will not be pretty, no matter which side wins we all lose.
