If they are not obeying the law, or they are attempting to enforce an unconstitutional law, I will stand up for my rights. If police ever show up at my door to take my guns, I will warn them to leave if they value their life. They are still Americans; our brothers and sisters, our neighbors and friends, so I don't want to hurt them - I want them to simply leave. If they fail to heed the warning, then I will safeguard my family and my rights by whatever means necessary.

It is not incongruous to stand up for what's right while supporting the people who regularly do just that. It simply takes wisdom and a level headed assessment of the developments of a changing situation.

Think again. Is your chief of police or sheriff a constitutional chief or sheriff ?? Have you asked them? Have you asked them if they support confiscation?

I asked the Fayette County sheriff and he refused to answer. He is a Democrat.

Police Chief in Houston is from Cuba and he marched with BLM in Austin, so you guess.

He was 4 when his family immigrated. He is a product of California, not Cuba.

And if it is some flunky from an alphabet agency, does that make him any less of an American? Does that make him any less of a human being? Regardless of who knocks on the door, they are not the ones making decisions and pulling strings - they are trying to make a living for their family same as me, they just chose an employer slightly more corrupt than mine. As long as I have the reasonable expectation of immediate safety that would allow me to make such a concession, I will give them the opportunity to walk away. It keeps my hands clean of unnecessary bloodshed and allows a potentially undecided person to return to their family and rethink their job and their life. If they forced the issue or showed up with guns drawn (or jumped through a window, or blew the door, or.......) then I would make the decision to protect my rights with violence. Until that point, I'm not going to pull a trigger with delusions of heroism and starting the next revolution. Some junior agent making 12 bucks an hour is not the one responsible for gun confiscation, and I doubt he'd be willing to die for it. Let cooler heads prevail, if such heads exist. Just my 2 cents. :tiphat:

Tyrants never do their dirty work. They send someone else. Those that do come to confiscate have made the decision to join in the tyranny. Actions have consequences.

Don't forget they'll then go after anyone who disagrees for racism, sexism, theism, and whatever other isms there possibly are.

As an aside, that looks like an airsoft gun...

(Trying again. Apparently somebody took offense at the picture version of this meme.)
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
