If They Come For Your Guns, Do You Have A Responsibility To Fight?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)


I know when I talk to people about giving up their guns I get the same response almost every time: “From my cold dead fingers….” but once I start asking REAL questions, the person’s whole demeanor usually changes. I think most people envision Obama and Holder showing up at their front door in all black with jackets that say “BIG GOVERNMENT – GIVE US YOUR GUNS,” and I’m sorry, but they’ll be MUCH more slick than that. They won’t come alone, and they will catch you OFF GUARD!


Sorry, but it won’t be like that. The town I was raised in up in New Jersey has about 8,000 people total. Our police station had about 6-7 officers and a Police Chief. In my youth, I knew all of the officers, and they all knew me. I was no saint! I went to school with the Chief’s daughter, lived around the corner from another officer… one or two of the other officers AND the Chief went to my church… my point is… I KNEW them… ALL OF THEM… and well! 

Unless you live in a big city, THAT is who is coming for your guns… and you can be sure they’ll be trained for your hesitation. You planning on shooting someone that’s a schoolmate’s parent? Planning on a firefight with someone who sits in your church pew? You think they won’t PLAN to come when your kids are home? THAT is the reality for the VAST majority of Americans… and all of a sudden, “From my cold dead fingers doesn’t seem so catchy…” 



How about this one? What if your 5 year old son or daughter is sitting on the couch in the next room? You planning on mowing down whatever law enforcement shows up that might be a parent of one of your kid’s best friends right in front of your kid? THAT your big plan? How about a little less bravado, little more brains ok?




For a FANTASTIC planning tool I suggest, HOW WILL YOU RESPOND WHEN THEY COME FOR YOUR GUNS? Another absolutely AWESOME guide is A DETAILED GUIDE TO SURVIVING MARTIAL LAW! Whoever wrote it was no scholar. The writing was beyond awful. I tried to clean it up as best I could. KNOW THIS: What that person lacked in literary skills, they MORE than know about SURVIVAL!

I would also start gathering information in addition to reading this article. Here are some links to consider in addition to this article:

Some other good friends to have – but it takes a while to hear back once you contact them so email them ASAP! 

Oath Keepers.jpg

Gun control is the issue before the people of America today and I’ve written many articles on the topic. While some have said this is a distraction from things like Benghazi and Fast and Furious, I have not lost sight of those things. With that in mind, the following is an excellent writing by Dean Garrison at D.C. Clothesline and wanted to share it with you. 

I feel a tremendous responsibility to write this article though I am a little apprehensive. Thinking about the possibility of rising up against our own government is a frightening thing for many of us. I am not Johnny Rambo and I will be the first to admit that I do not want to die. The reason I feel compelled to write this, however, is simply because I don’t think the average American is equipped with the facts. I feel that a lot of American citizens feel like they have no choice but to surrender their guns if the government comes for them. I blame traditional media sources for this mass brainwash and I carry the responsibility of all small independent bloggers to tell the truth. So my focus today is to lay out your constitutional rights as an American, and let you decide what to do with those rights.

About a month ago I let the “democracy” word slip in a discussion with a fellow blogger. I know better. Americans have been conditioned to use this term. It’s not an accurate term and it never has been a correct term to describe our form of government. The truth is that the United States of America is a constitutional republic. This is similar to a democracy because our representatives are selected by democratic elections, but ultimately our representatives are required to work within the framework of our constitution. In other words, even if 90% of Americans want something that goes against our founding principles, they have no right to call for a violation of constitutional rights.

If you are religious you might choose to think of it this way… Say that members of your congregation decide that mass fornication is a good thing. Do they have the right to change the teachings of your God? The truth is the truth. It doesn’t matter how many people try to stray from it. Did I just compare our founders to God? In a way I did, but please note that I am not trying to insult anyone. For the purpose of the American Government our constitution and founders who wrote it are much like God is to believers. It is the law. It is indisputable.

Our founders did not want a “democracy” for they feared a true democracy was just as dangerous as a monarchy. The founders were highly educated people who were experienced in defending themselves against tyranny. They understood that the constitution could protect the people by limiting the power of anyone to work outside of it much better than a pure system of popularity. A system of checks and balances was set up to help limit corruption of government and also the potential for an “immoral majority” developing within the American People. We have forgotten in this country that we are ultimately ruled by a constitution.

Why is a democracy potentially just as dangerous as a monarchy? This quote answers that question more fully and succinctly than I can.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.

Even 230+ years ago our founders were perceptive enough to realize that democracy was a dangerous form of government. How so? Because the citizens of a country can become just as corrupt as any government. We have seen evidence of this throughout history. Ask Native Americans and African-Americans if this population can become corrupt.

I think in 2012 we are seeing evidence of what Franklin was trying to tell us. Just because a majority of people may support certain ideas it does not mean that those ideas are just. In simple terms, just because most Americans love our president and voted for him, it does not mean that he has the power to go against our constitutional rights.

Next I’d like to review the text of the second amendment. It is very clear. This is the law of this land. So when Senator Feinstein or President Obama talk about taking your guns, you need to think about something. Are they honoring their sworn oath to uphold the constitution?

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”



This is a pretty clear statement. The fact is that it took 232 years for the Supreme Court to even rule on this amendment because it has never been successfully challenged. In 2008 a case of Columbia v. Heller the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in Washington D.C. was unconstitutional. One also has to take this into consideration. The Supreme Court supports your right to own guns. If you want to research this decision further you can start here.

For those who try to debate the spirit of the 2nd amendment, they are truly no different from people who will try to take Biblical quotes out of context to try to support their immoral decisions. The founders were very clear on the intent of the 2nd amendment. Let me share a few quick quotes here:

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil

interference they deserve a place of honor with all that is good.” -George Washington

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.” -Alexander Hamilton

The Constitution shall never be construed….to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms. -Samuel Adams


I could find hundreds of quotes like these. This country was built on the right to bear arms. It was built on the rights of an individual to bear arms, regardless of what his government or neighbor happened to think. This is crystal clear. Ironically the people who voice their opinions against this right have their free speech protected by your guns. Without guns in this country, all other amendments become null and void, simply because “We the People” will lose our power of enforcement.

We need to keep this in mind as our “representatives” try to push gun bans. I don’t care if 99% of people are in support of gun bans (which is far from the case), it is a violation of our constitutional rights, plain and simple.

A constitutional republic protects the rights of the individual even when their ideas are very much in the minority. If I were the only person in America who believed in the 2nd amendment, I would still be within my rights to call upon it. You would all think I was insane and possibly celebrate if I was gunned down, but in the end I would be the only true American among us.

Our framers were very clear on this. If my government comes to take my guns, they are violating one of my constitutional rights that is covered by the 2nd amendment.

It is not my right, at that point, but my responsibility to respond in the name of liberty. What I am telling you is something that many are trying to soft sell, and many others have tried to avoid putting into print, but I am going to say it. The time for speaking in code is over.

If they come for our guns then it is our constitutional right to put them six feet under. You have the right to kill any representative of this government who tries to tread on your liberty. I am thinking about self-defense and not talking about inciting a revolution. Re-read Jefferson’s quote. He talks about a “last resort.” I am not trying to start a Revolt, I am talking about self-defense. If the day for Revolution comes, when no peaceful options exist, we may have to talk about that as well. None of us wants to think about that, but please understand that a majority can not take away your rights as an American citizen. Only you can choose to give up your rights.

Congress could pass gun ban legislation by a 90%+ margin and it just would not matter. I think some people are very unclear on this. This is the reason we have a Supreme Court, and though I do not doubt that the Supreme Court can also become corrupt, in 2008 they got it right. They supported the constitution. It does not matter what the majority supports because America is not a democracy. A constitutional republic protects the rights of every single citizen, no matter what their “elected servants” say. A majority in America only matters when the constitution is not in play.

I just wrote what every believer in the constitution wants to say, and what every constitutional blogger needs to write. The truth of the matter is that this type of speech is viewed as dangerous and radical or subversive, and it could gain me a world of trouble that I do not want. It is also the truth. To make myself clear I will tell you again. If they come for your guns it is your right to use those guns against them and to kill them. You are protected by our constitution.

Most of the articles I am reading on the subject are trying to give you clues without just coming out and saying it. I understand that because certain things in this country will get you on a list that you don’t want to be on. I may well be on that list. This blog is small and growing so I may not be there yet, but I have dreams. I also have my own list of subversives and anyone who attempts to deny my constitutional rights is on that list.

I am not the “subversive” here, it is the political representatives who are threatening to take away my inalienable rights. If they come to take my guns and I leave a few of them wounded or dead, and I somehow survive, I have zero doubt that I will spend a long time in prison and may face an execution. But I would much rather be a political prisoner than a slave.

If I go down fighting then I was not fighting to harm these human beings. I was simply defending my liberty and yours. It is self-defense and it is what our country was built on. We won our freedom in self-defense. We would not be ruled by a tyrannical government in the 1770′s and we will not be ruled in 2012 by a tyrannical government. There is no difference.

This is a case of right and wrong. As of now the 2nd amendment stands. It has never been repealed. If Feinstein or Barack have a problem with the constitution then they should be removed from office. They are not defending the constitution which they have sworn an oath to protect. It is treasonous to say the least. They would likely say the same about me, but I have the constitution, the founders, and the supreme court on my side. They only have their inflated egos.

I am not writing this to incite people. I am writing this in hopes that somehow I can make a tiny difference. I have no idea how many of my neighbors have the will to defend their constitutional rights. 2%? 20%? I am afraid that 20% is a high number, unfortunately. When push comes to shove many people may give up and submit to being ruled. I believe that our government is banking on this.

What I do know is that this country was founded by people who had balls the size of Texas and Patriotic Americans take shit off of no one, especially our own government. For evidence of that, you might research the Revolutionary War. My question is how many Patriots are left

I would hope that our officials come to realize that, regardless of our numbers, we still exist because they are calling Patriotic Americans to action. They are making us decide if we want to die free or submit to their rule. I can not tell you where you should stand on that. I do know that it may make the difference between living a life of freedom or slavery.

You must start thinking about this because I believe that the day is coming soon and I personally believe it has already been planned. Not all conspiracy theories are hogwash. They may throw down the gauntlet soon and my suggestion is that you prepare yourself to react.

I mean no disrespect to our elected officials but they need to understand that “We the People” will not be disarmed. If they proceed then it is they that are provoking us and we will act accordingly. We are within our rights to do so.

For those who are in support of taking the guns, you need to ask yourself a very important question, and I am not just talking about the politicians, because if you support them, you have chosen your side.

Read the article on Freedom Outpost here:


I have learned a thing or two about a thing or two since then. I wrote that article when I was just starting to wake up to what was going on around me. And to be quite blunt, if you think you are going to have time to reach for your gun during a full-scale confiscation, you may be sadly mistaken. Chances are you won’t even get to your guns before a red beam is dancing between your eyebrows.We have to know what to expect. This is not about ego. This is about survival and living to fight another day. So sure, I can bow out my chest and talk about how I’m going to die a glorious death with hot smoldering brass up to my knees. I can talk about how they will pry my gun from my cold dead hands. The truth is that neither is likely to happen.To understand the likely scenario we need to look at a situation in which full-scale gun confiscation was implemented and develop our strategy from there. Let’s talk about Hurricane Katrina.Let’s get all thoughts of fantasy out of our head. We can’t assume that we will see them coming. We can’t expect a phone call from Bob who lives three blocks away. We can’t expect anything in this situation except to be surprised. Please listen to this account of someone who was there for the Katrina gun confiscation. This stuff happens with the precision of our military. This is not going to be Andy and Barney knocking on your door.

After listening to that interview are you still sure that you can get the drop on these guys? Do you still think you can take 2 or 3 out before they mow you down?

I don’t think that. I have crying babies at my house. Godzilla could be running rampant through my home town and I wouldn’t know, until he squashed me like a bug.

Maybe you feel differently but my thought is this. I have to assume that they will find anything and everything in my house, car, garage or storage shed. And I would include rented storage sheds in that. Don’t you think they will be tearing those apart as well?

I have to assume that every gun I have in my possession and every round of ammo will be gone. I can try to hide a gun in the deep freeze embedded in a mess of homemade vegetable soup and maybe I have a chance of it not getting noticed, but I can not assume anything. Technology will find guns hidden in walls and under floorboards. Gun sniffing dogs will find guns buried in your yard.

I have come to the conclusion that everyone needs to seriously consider hiding a gun off site. I’m not talking about having your uncle hold a shotgun for you. Your uncle is probably going to get raided too. I am talking about you getting creative and finding a way to stash an emergency firearm that no one is likely to find. Because if SHTF (stuff hits the fan) it could be the difference between life and death for you and your family.

I found an outstanding article by Claire Wolfe about hiding your gun off site. I am going to quote part of the article below and then, if you need more insight you can follow the link to the full text.


My friend Jack favors the very simplest method of preparing a firearm for hiding. He leaves the gun fully assembled, wraps it in vapor-phase inhibitor paper (also known as volatile corrosion inhibitor or VCI paper), adds desiccants (see sidebar) to keep down humidity, then places gun and ammo into a tightly-sealed container. His SKS spent nearly 10 years underground in this condition and was perfectly fine — and ready to shoot — once he finally he unearthed it.

Still, such a casual approach horrifies a lot of people — and it definitely lacks failsafes. My own preference: disassemble the firearm, coat every bit with a film of high quality gun oil like Break-Free, wrap each part separately, and then seal everything in a waterproof container with desiccants. Some people I’ve known take the extra step of pulling oxygen out of the container using a vacuum or piece of dry ice. You can also get VCI corrosion-resistant gun bags (including more pricey VCI vacuum bags) from places like or Brownells.

Some old-timers I know disassemble their guns for hiding, but instead of coating parts with Break-Free, they use Cosmoline. Cosmoline is the now nearly-generic term for a brown, gooey, Vaseline-like preservative that’s been used for decades to rustproof firearms. You may have encountered it if you ever bought a surplus military rifle. Commonly, such rifles have been literally dipped in a vat of Cosmoline at some point and will have the goop in every cranny even after being superficially cleaned. You might want to go the Cosmoline route if you expect your firearm to be hidden for a really long time — for instance, if you intend it for your yet-unborn grandchild. You can buy Cosmoline or similar pricey, corrosion-proofing preservatives online. But if you go that way, whoever resurrects the gun will need to have mineral spirits, a soaking tub, and brushes on hand.

Any time you store a gun disassembled, you need to store any tools required to clean and reassemble it. Maybe instructions, too. I know I might forget how to reassemble a gun that I hadn’t touched in years.



An appropriate storage container depends on your climate and where you plan to hide your gun.

One of the most popular and secure methods of gun hiding is burying. And the most popular container for burying a gun is ordinary Schedule-40 PVC pipe from any hardware store or plumbing supply store. You’ll need a piece of pipe with sufficient diameter and length to hold your firearm, ammunition, and tools (unless you plan to store the ammo and tools separately). You’ll also need end caps and sealant. Preferably you’ll buy all this where you’re not known, and you’ll use cash, not a check or credit card. One of the caps should be permanently sealed on. The second cap may be a threaded one with a rubber gasket — but only if you are very sure of an excellent seal. My friend Jack cemented both ends when he buried his SKS. Then he also buried a saw nearby, wrapped in VCI paper, to open the storage tube.

In addition to being buried, a tightly sealed PVC tube can also be submerged in murky water or in a slurry. Painted with appropriate camouflage, it can be hoisted into a tree or into the rafters of a barn or otherwise used to hide its contents in plain sight.

If you’re lucky enough to find one at a gun show or surplus store, guns and other objects can also be hidden in old plastic mortar cases, which already have threaded lids with very tight rubber-gasket seals.

A pistol can be hidden in a tightly sealed metal ammo box — again, well oiled and with desiccants added. This is how Jack hid the pistol we were searching for. Because it was going into damp ground, he placed the ammo can inside a larger ammo can, a plastic knockoff this time. He added desiccants to that, as well. Both ammo cans had their lids sealed with caulk. Then he wrapped the entire assembly in a plastic bag and duct-taped the heck out of it. As a final precaution, when he set everything into the ground, he upended a white plastic tub over the rest. This would turn out to be the one truly useless step.

Bonus: If your climate is very, very dry and you’re stashing a gun above ground in a spot you’re certain will never get wet, you may not need any container at all. Just place your well-oiled, VCI-wrapped firearm “naked” in its hiding place (e.g. inside a wall, under floorboards). Always include desiccants. Even in dry climates, hidey-holes can still get humid.



The first thing to know is where not to hide a gun. Do not hide it in or around your home unless you’ve figured out a way to make it undetectable — not only to opportunistic burglars, but also to metal detectors, ground-penetrating radar, and even gun-sniffing dogs (yes, there are dogs specially trained for this job; they’re actually taught to alert to gun oils, powders, or firing residue).

Of course it’s fine — and routine — to place everyday firearms in securelocations around the house. But remember, that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about the gun or guns that you’ll go get when the other guns are gone or when government agents are on a confiscation campaign. So unless you have extensive, difficult-to-search property, or some insanely clever and difficult hiding method, it’s best to hide firearms away from home.

Three common places are: underground, above eye level, or right in plain sight, but so disguised nobody sees what you’ve hidden.

Undergound: Because this is one of the most popular, durable, and most secure methods — but also one of the trickiest — we’ll spend the most time on it. You’ve prepared your firearm using one of the three methods above. You’ve sealed it inside a PVC pipe, complete with desiccants, ammo, and tools. Now what?

Find a spot where you can be unobserved.

A spot where you can be confident everything is likely to stay undisturbed for years.

A spot where nobody but you is ever likely to spend time.

A spot with landmarks you can recognize — now and 10 years from now.

A spot with lots of old metal objects strewn about is a plus.

I don’t think this can wait my friends. Yesterday we talked about how the federal government is spending $80 million to get more security for possible riots.

Alex Jones had a caller to his show recently that flat out stated that the National Guard is being placed under DHS control. Is that true? I don’t know.

I do know that if I were a President who was going to impose martial law I would do it in the late fall and early winter. Why? Because that eliminates a lot of the cover for those of us who live in cold weather spots. The trees will be bare and there will be less places to hide. It also makes things like power grid shutdowns more effective. People that are fighting to stay warm are less likely to worry about going on offense. They will be concerned with survival.

Most people who know me know that I barely have time to write at present.

The fact that I threw this article together, no matter how poorly written or thought out, should be a huge clue to you that I think the situation is dire. If you have been following the fate of our top brass military leaders you will realize that something is not right.

Many months ago we ran the story of Jim Garrow exposing the litmus tests that our military is now being exposed to. Will they fire on American citizens?

If you watched that video interview above, you might realize that even though many of our military will stand with the people, they will have no problem finding enough that will not.

Back in March a national hero ended a 41 year military career. General James “Mad Dog” Mattis has been called the “most revered Marine in a generation” by the Marine Corps Times.

Shortly after Dr. Jim Garrow’s bombshell I was talking to a source that has a close connection to Mattis. I want you to understand that I was told that Mattis walked away because he refused to give the order to fire on American citizens. If that is truly the case then it was more of a resignation than a retirement.

Is it true? I have no way of knowing. I did not talk to Mattis. I got my information second hand through my own source. I have reason to believe it is true but I can not guarantee it and I can’t tell you how the information was gathered because I don’t want to put anyone’s life in jeopardy. So who knows about Mattis? But…

What I will say is that nothing would surprise me at this point. And with Winter on the way I think we all need to prepare just in case this is the time we have all feared.

Economic collapse seems possible among other things, which would be a perfect excuse for a national state of emergency which results in a declaration of martial law.

If nothing happens then at least you have prepared yourself for months or years later when it does. Because we all know it’s coming…

We just don’t know when.

Update 10-25 @ 10:45 PM… I decided to add a second video. Why? Because some people simply don’t believe anything they see on Infowars. This is an ABC News report that pretty well verifies everything that was said in the interview.

  • All good points. And I have considered all of them. But I will still fight. I have already decided. Having guns is my God given right. It is not granted by the 2nd. It is protected by it. I do not know the police where I live. In fact I have no dealings with them at all and that is how I like it. But nobody is taking my guns, nobody. I am not some Rambo wannabe, and I have no illusions of grandeur. If I fight, which I will, I will die, I know that. But if they do come they are breaking the highest law in this land. And they are violating their oath. This makes them criminals to me, and I will kill as many as I can. I care not who they may be….

    • Hey, art, did you “register” your gun with some government agency?
      I bet you did, you “believing” order following christo-CREEP!!!
      :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
      What MORONS most of your really are!!
      Fear is titillating, isn’t it?

      All of you that have been STUPID enough to “register” a gun with ANY kind of government agency will be targeted to have your guns turned in.
      The “Turn In YOUR gun” Program will be “voluntary”.
      During the turn it in time period, you will all comply…..willingly.
      Because, if you do NOT comply, your house, your car your investment property and anything else of “Your Property” will be confiscated!
      You will be evicted from your home, and your home sold at auction to the highest bidder with the proceeds going back to the gov. entity that just MUGGED you!!!

      So, since most of you VERY STUPID “complying” people will do as you are told.
      OR, you will lose all of your stuff!!

      Pretty simple, eh??

  • If your on a red list or? You will likely be taken away and killed anyway.

    I really don’t know how they can pull off millions of three am raids without the people waking up and which point the hunters will become the hunted and they clearly could care less about the oath of office and hence are traitors and killer corporate thugs.

    You have a constitutional duty to respond.

    Just like at bundy ranch once the word got out people banded together to fight off the un american blm goon squad.

    Guns are being purchased by the thousands each day which means they would have to shut gun & ammo sales down meaning they are ready to make their move.

    I still think once the people openly start fighting back most of the pack animals will go yoyo.

  • You may be correct. The American government may take our guns. Many Americans have believed the media that guns are the root of evil. In China they do not have the private guns we have, so they use knives. It takes more effort to kill a person with a knife so you see them killing children. Be careful what you wish for. People killed people before guns were invented.

    Countries that do not like free Americans would like to get us to disarm ourselves. It would make killing us a lot cleaner. They don’t really want to destroy our property.

    A better solution is for the American government to give permission to kill any foreign military that invades our country. Many Americans are afraid to disobey the law. However, having worked as an correctional officer, I know many felons have guns that the government doesn’t know where they are located. They have never cared about the law and will defend themselves. USA private guns outnumber the China military guns. When north Americans are pushed against the wall they will fight back. I hope it will not be to late.

  • Let them come, ask not nor give Quarter!! HOOYA!!

  • The anti-Christ realizes that America’s people can not be conquered entirely because of all the guns owned. They will never come for your guns, that would be crazy! They will conquer America in other ways! Economic collapse and war! 2015 will see this. Economic collapse in the next 6 months, followed by war!
