I have a friend in law enforcement. He and I served in the Army together. He called me last night and related a story about gun confiscation. Several LEOs were sitting around in the break room discussing whether or not they would participate in gun confiscation. The several said that, yeah, if they wanted to keep their jobs, they would.
My friend laid out scenarios… “Are you really going to knock on that door in Podunk, Iowa and tell Joe Sixpack you are there to take his guns?”
“Well, it wouldn’t be just me. I’d have back up.”
“Are you really going to do wit with, what?, two or three guys?”
“I’d have SWAT backup and maybe a .50 cal on a National Guard Humvee.”
“Are you really going to go door-to-door in Podunk like that?”
“I’d guess I’d have to.”
“To what end? Are you really going to kill Iowans who resist? Are you really going to cut loose with a .50 cal machine gun in an Iowa farm town?”
“Well, what am I supposed to do if they are shooting at me?”
That conversation made my blood run cold.
