There Are No Answers, Only Deflection
Try as I might, I cannot get anyone to answer this question. I've been told its ridiculous, that it will never happen, that it would be impossible, that it would only be possible if the Republicans got a super-majority, etc., etc.
But an answer to the question? No. I've tried in twitter, I've tried on blogs about gun control posted by ex-military. Now I'm trying here.
I want to know. If the order came down - regardless of the likelihood, regardless of the origin, regardless of the political repercussions, regardless of what sort of government would give such an order, regardless even which fucking country the event happened in - would a military unit come and get your guns if they were LEGALLY entitled to do so? Or would they balk?
