Threat Assessment*

If you've missed Confederate Yankee recently, he's no longer Confederate Yankee, just plain ol' Bob, & he's working on a Turner Diaries kind of a revenge fantasy thing ...
Let me explain, gun grabbers, how your confiscatory fantasy plays out. Let us imagine for a moment that a sweeping gun control bill similar to the one currently suggested is passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by a contemptuous President.
Contemptuous? So sensitive, these gunmen. Anyway, Confederate Bob goes on for ten paragraphs detailing his adolescent/juvenile fantasy of a bloodbath ("It will not be pretty. There will be no 'winners,' and perhaps hundreds of thousands to millions of dead.") inspired by an imagined threat of gun confiscation. Here let us pause & note that in no way at all whatever is Bob suggesting that you should join a "resistance cell" or become a lone wolf &, you know, kill every single person you don't like, starting w/ residents of blue states & larger cities.
The elites will be steadily whittled down, and if they can not be reached directly, the targets will become their staffers, spouses, children, and grandchildren. Grandstanding media figures loyal to the regime would die in droves, executed as enemies of the Republic.
Sure they will Bob. Every last grandchild, every Congressional staffer who ever hung up on you, every media figure who laughed at you from the tee vee set, dead like doorknobs. Feels good thinking about it, doesn't it? You'll show them. They'll be sorry!

And, how the Wolverines will beat the Army, Navy, Marines & Air Force, & what's going to happen after that.
Some of these defectors will be true “operators,” with the skills and background to turn ragtag militia cells into the kind of forces that decimate loyalist troops, allowing them no rest and no respite, striking them when they are away from their most potent weapons. Military vehicles are formidable, but they are thirsty beasts, in terms of fuel, ammo, time, and maintenance. Tanks and bombers are formidable only when they have gas, guns, and can be maintained. In a war without a front, logistics are incredibly easy to destroy, and mechanics and supply clerks are not particularly adept at defending themselves.

Eventually, the government will turn upon itself. The President will be captured or perhaps killed by his own protectors. A dictatorship will form in the vacuum.
That President will learn not to hold Bob Owens in contempt.
If we’re lucky, the United States of America, or whatever amalgam results, will again try to rebuild. If we’re very lucky, the victors will reinstate the Constitution as the law of the land. Just as likely though, we’ll face fractious civil wars fought over issues we’ve not begun to fathom, and a much diminished state or states will result, perhaps guided by foreign interests.
Now who hates America & wants to see it destroyed? By "foreign interests," yet. If rebelling & destroying the country doesn't play directly into the hands of mysterious foreign interests what does?

Further drooling documented.
*Our assessment is that the Secret Service, FBI & ATFE should take all of Bob's toys away from before he hurts himself.

Where has anything actually been proposed?

Active fantasy life, that one. Maybe he should talk to the OWS protesters about how the militarized police treat perceived dissidents.

He also apparently has no understanding of the difference between actual military weapons and common handguns. Let alone vehicles like the Bradley. Perhaps he imagines that the police and military will be kind enough to fight in nice straight lines, like the British did. While using the same weapons that he owns, in lieu of 'crowd control' weapons.

He's such a moron.

Yeah, Confederate Wankee, you should touch base with Koresh to see how that whole 'armed resistance' to the Gubmint thing went down.

Try and do it without using kids as human shields though, willya?

Bobo could probably hurt himself with a slinky.

I'm betting there was a lot of lead paint in his childhood home.

When has anything like this ever even happened? And over GUNS? Not food, not torture, not hopelessness and a bleak future for the next generation. Just a law regulating guns.

And "hundreds of thousands or millions dead"? Srsly? In a year of shelling, bombing, snipers, airstrikes and extra-judicial executions the body count in Syria is 60,000.

This guy can't even IMAGINE up a good revolution. There would be betrayers, arrests and detentions, lots of sneaking around and trying to organize under strict martial law. It might be fun - but it's not all spray and pray. In fact that's the rare part...

And in the case of ANY of it coming to pass, he will be leading the charge from his Cheetos stained couch, fondling his gun and changing his urine-stained shorts every time his phone rings.

And he's accusing gun control advocates of fantasizing?
