#1 Local cops really want to go home at night (and don't want to sprint and duck between the car and the door). They have families among the population. There is a reason other countries have barracks and compounds for their police. One Concord bridge incident and those guys are out.

The National Guard is composed of the people you are trying to take the guns from.

The 'regulars' are rather committed to actions around the world and on the borders, meanwhile most of their families are housed and live among the communities, largely composed of former and retired members who actually believe the text of the Constitution. You may convince the 'careerists' at the top of the chain to do your bidding, but you'll quickly find out the middle and lower grades probably disagree.

While you are hunting for AK-47s and AR-15s, a lot of 'hunting rifles' will be busy on open season for pols.

There are not enough thugs available to protect you except those already involved in various job and occupational employment on that line. You'll find out quickly they're smart enough to figure out that maybe they should be in charge and not you when it comes to giving orders.

#3 Yes, a lot of Nigerian and Congolese guys in blue helmets won't stand out much. And won't inflame the locals either. Do I need to say /sarc?

#4 When they simply ignore it and continue to talk over you, there is no benefit in trying to make them see reason. It is like talking to a brick wall.

That's debating liberals & leftists in a nutshell.

#6 (1) Shoot at the guys trying to grab the guns. (2) Bury the guns and report them stolen (3) Hand the guns over.

I don't know the percentages that will fall into each category but option (2) is rarely spoken of and I suspect it'll be rather large.

#8 If you want to imagine a large number of people saying "I didn't sign up for this... I don't get paid enough for this..."

#9 There will of course be "elite units" of steroid abusers rabid killers hiding behind badges. But not enough to matter.

#10 All you need to know, children, is, once the fun starts, it's win or die. Ever was it thus...

#11 Pro tip. If your squad leader mentions Kevin William son or Jonah Goldberg you should promote him to the Heaven Brigade and press on.

#13 I don't care what they do In urban areas other than they are localized and easy to warch, cordon off, etc.

#15 Really hungry people don't fight so well. Send them plenty of drugs and warm beer and watch their proclivities overtake them.

#17 Swat trumps individuals.
Can't plan collective defense without "conspiring to commit criminal acts"

Whats the plan that works?

#18 Criminals don't actually make good soldiers.

However, socialists don't care about good, just useful. It's an old tradition.

#19 Ya, but you had to back each up with MVD (NKVD armed forces) battalion with orders to shoot anyone who runs. So they weren't very effective personnel utilization wise.

#22 FBI, deputized gangs(think Hedley Lamarr in "Blazing Saddles") AntiFa, any cop who stood by as Trump supporters are beaten, any cop providing security to tranny grooming parties, any cop who only cares about his pension, any military who is politicized, or only cares about benefits, or is just following orders, etc. etc.

Don't kid yourselves, folks, there're plenty of volunteers for the job.

And:

#17 Swat trumps individuals.

Gets it.

#24 Law Enforcement Oath of Honor

"On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution, my community, and the agency I serve."

Anyone who wears a law enforcement uniform and attempts to violate the second amendment is a criminal and is open to criminal prosecution. This is something the NRA needs to make clear to ALL local, state and federal agencies.
