What To Do When Gun Control Gets Really Bad

Gun Control is a favorite tactic for many politicians on the left. It allows them to shift the blame from the person, whose worldviews and political party often aligns with theirs, to a simple tool they can ban. With an all Republican everything, you’d think we wouldn’t have to worry, but that’s far from true. These people seemingly always find a way to infiltrate politics and attempt to strip us of our God-given rights. So what do we do? How do we fight back if gun control legislation is proposed or passed?

#1. Learn How To Make Your Own

California is the beacon of cruddy gun control laws in the United States. They’ve gone above and beyond to reclassify your standard semi-automatic rifle into what they call an assault rifle. What we’ve seen is people and companies outsmarting the legislature at every turn. One of the most famous means was building your own gun. Specifically AR 15s. AR 15s are always on the chopping block, but even California couldn’t stop the signal.

With the advent of 80% lowers Californians were able to again build their own rifles within the law. The AR 15 is hardly the only weapon you can build. In fact, an enterprising patriot build can manufacture their own semi-auto Sten gun, Glocks, MAC 10/11s, AK rifles and more. The main issue is going to be acquiring the skills and tools needed to make these weapons. It takes a little mechanical skill and a lot of different tools.

It would be wise to start learning the insides and outsides of guns now. Learn to build them, acquire the tools, and fire up the Youtube machine. Here you’ll find as hard as they try they can’t stop the signal. You can build your own with a little practice, and it’s perfectly legal to do so. You aren’t just building guns, you are learning valuable skills regarding the construction and design of firearms that could be invaluable if things got really bad.

#2. Recognize the Gun Ban Matrix

One fact we’ve seen over and over again with anti-gunners is that they know absolutely nothing about guns. If the power these people had wasn’t so terrifying it would be hilarious. Every time they open their mouths about guns they say something incredibly stupid. They simply target guns that look scary and that’s it. That’s why the gun ban matrix exists. The gun ban matrix is a list of features and guns unlikely to be banned because anti-gunners are idiots and don’t understand firearms.

These are the guns you should consider investing in should sweeping legislation occur. In case the situations getting drastic and confiscation begins things may move too fast for people to react. In that event a neutered gun is better than no gun.

The first guns to go are going to be the traditional targets for anti-gunners, the AK 47s, the AR 15s, the Tavors, and the usual suspects. They may be banned by name, or by the features they share. A good alternative to these semi-auto rifles is the Ruger Mini 14 and Mini 30 series. They can be purchased in not so scary configurations.

Past the Mini 14 and Mini 30, there is the fixed magazine SKS rifle. It’s often left off ban lists, and it’s affordable and common. It’s limited to ten rounds, but with stripper clips, you can reload quite fast with practice.

Past this level we get into manually operated firearms, this includes pump-action shotguns, and lever and bolt action rifles. A good lever action rifle is a rapid firing gun and in the right caliber can hold up to 14 rounds. These guns are highly unlikely to be banned without a full constitutional amendment.

#3. Don’t Give A Single Inch

With the recent Las Vegas shooting there has been an increased interest in banning a firearm accessory known as a bump fire stock. These accessories are rather dumb and useless, and in no way did it make the shooter more lethal. Regardless of how dumb and useless they are there is no reason the firearms community should let them be banned without a fight. With the NRA even saying the ATF should reevaluate bump fire stocks.

This is how gun control starts, with tiny little cuts. We let them take one dumb accessory and next time they’ll push for something else, and they’ll keep pushing. Give them nothing, not a single inch. As gun rights advocates we have to defend what we have and go on the offensive. Fight back and take our God Given rights back.

#4. Push Back and Push Back Hard

If legislation gets passed regarding gun control, and I mean any legislation at all, we have to push back. The vast majority of gun owners are law abiding, tax paying, job having citizens who want nothing more than to live in peace. We all know actual gun control will do absolutely nothing to strip criminals of firearms, just good people who already obey the law.

If gun control happens as law abiding gun owners we have to flood the legislator’s offices with our demands. We have to protest, we have to write letters, we need to march on the capitals. In 2012 the gun community did an amazing job of coming together to resist any form of gun control. We need that same response to every law that passes, heck we need that reaction every gun control law that is even proposed.

We need to push at the local, state and federal level. Work every angle possible. We have to keep supporting companies that agree with our God-given rights, we have to join gun rights organizations of every kind. We literally have to put our money where our mouth is.

#5. Focus on the Small Politics as Much as the Large

It’s easy to forget the importance of local politics when it comes to federal gun control. Local and state politics can make all the difference. We saw Sheriff’s in states across the union step forward and say they would refuse to enforce federal gun control laws in their counties. We saw states and municipalities adopt laws that would act to nullify federal gun control laws.

If we can’t toss the anti-freedom and anti-gun bastards out of federal offices we can at least elect the right people at the local and state level to ensure the laws are useless.

Resist

As American citizens, we owe it to future generations to resist. Resist with every fiber we have. Resist gun control measures with everything we can. We need to prepare for the worst and always ready to resist.

    The ONLY thing that has kept America a free nation since our very beginning is the fact citizens are armed.
    We have watched as other counties forced their people to hand over their guns and watched as they were destroyed later on with no way to fight back. This may well be the only reason Americans may finally band together and fight back if a gun grab law is ever passed. Nothing else has ever done it on a national level.

    #5 is super important. The libs started years ago to win elections at the lowest level. They knew that that JPO might end up as a federal judge, and do their dirty work. Know who you are electing and what they stand for.

      Sadly that requires a little homework to find out who & what somebody running for office is. And even then a bad apple may slip thru….. but what is on the people, is when they don’t vote them out ! I’ve seen county & state judges make outrageous calls that enrage everyone, but come election day they are voted to be retained ( mainly due to party).
      THIS IS NOT A GUN ISSUE…. it’s a representation issue. We need common sense represented in our government, our laws, & overall AMERICAN lifestyle.
      It’s time to say NO to stupidity… start by saying No More in the voting booth.

    Although Republicans do control both houses, they don’t have complete control. There are RINOs who’s votes cannot be counted on, and it is a 50/50 split in the Senate, which is not complete control by either party.

        Ill-informed is an apt term. Their information is making the USA ill.

        I also like your suggestion for “miss-informed.” It implies people who are receiving their information from their mistresses, or perhaps that the targeted information missed their minds.

      I don’t believe the libs are “misinformed” or “illinformed”. They know exactly what they are doing and that is trying to disarm the citizens so they can shove their socialist/com munist/progressive (whatever you want to all it) agenda down our American throats! They know (as well as our forefathers) that it starts by disarming the citizens. They’re stupid or idiots to think we’re just going to let them disarm us. Sounds like AC is a PC supporter. Time to call a spade a spade (not a racist remark if that’s what you’re thinking)! Libs don’t mind calling us names. If the proverbial shoe fits…

    From My cold gray hands in a pile of brass. they don’t have the authority to take our guns. They don’t have a clue as to what gun the patsy was firing in Las Vegas if he even fired one at all. I am tired of being ignored and pushed around by the government and will work hard to see that people who vote against guns will have to start looking for a new job.

    Police are never there when a shooter opens fire on people. They’re ALWAYS after the fact! People need to be armed to immediately stop a shooter from mass murders. Gun controls ONLY allows Police to walk all over American Citizens. Have you ever noticed that during EVERY peaceful demonstration that they ONLY people armd are the Police?

    Awesome extremist zealot message. As a rational supporter of the second amendment, I believe in the right of individuals to own guns, I own quite a few as a prepper. But every right has its limitations. The first amendment guarantees freedom of speech, but not all speech is free such as yelling fire in a crowded movie theater. Firearms without any restrictions is not only dangerous, it is stupid! Do not give an inch, really? This country was built on compromise, the Constitution was a product of incredible levels of compromise from a very diverse group of individuals/states. Greatest document on the planet! The founders wanted to protect your right to defend yourself and your family, not to own the best killing machines on earth.

          “Spot on” Surly! They must be living in that Utopia the libs keep thinking we live in where it’s possible to wipe out hate, end all crime and heal all sickness. Give them an inch and they think they’re a ruler. If the govt has better weapons than us (which they do) then why can’t we have ours. Doesn’t matter how the Las Vegas shooter killed people, he could have done it better with explosives, airplane, bus… take your pick.

            I take it Leahcim, you never heard “keep your friends close and your enemies closer”. Just as Reagan never made Russia our enemy but defeated them by collapsing their economy. Luck has nothing to do with it. It’s called strategy. Something a good commander-in-chief has that obviously Trump’s predececessors never obtained. And who gives a damn about what Putin agrees with?

      How can you be a rational supporter of the second amendment and reject what it says?

      I have rejected your message because I think you use too many words. Using too many words is not only dangerous, it is stupid and you should be fined and go to jail for it, especially if you don’t get government permission before you speak that way.

    Just as a note, the SKS can take a 20, 30 or 40 round mag. It is a 5 minute change over and you can get the mags at Cabelas or other sporting goods. Completely changes the sks add on a scope mount and you have a very decent little gun. It’s still a little sloppy, but can do 6″ circle at 150 yds

    Those demanding the abolition of the second amendment will not be stopped by anything short of their own death. Anyone filing suit to weaken or abolish the right to defend one’s self should have to post a one million bond which becomes forfeit when they lose.

    unfortunately, the cardinal of the chicago archdiocese just banned guns in the churches. i was telling my husband that if our mass had been attacked last sunday, the shooter would have been met with gunfire from a retired police officer i know, who was at this mass, and carries a concealed gun. i’ve seen it.

    just another reason i wish we could leave illinois.

      It’s a possible good thought, but with the total caos happening all around, how many more victims would be tallied with a few errant shots from someone with a hand gun, officer or not. I do agree that if possible, cw carrier has at least a chance , but tough call.

    They, they, they….who are “they”. Maybe they are your fellow citizens who (mostly) are ok with people owning guns but find the extreme positions held by the NRA and people who speak like some on this discussion site to be frightening. And, by the way, how well has the idea of citizen shooters been working out-50+ dead in Las Vegas, another 26 in Texas. What’s next? I would rather rely on TRAINED law enforcement for protection and better controls on who can have a gun than having somebody decide he wants to be a hero and start shooting back in a crowd. Keep your guns, keep them in a safe place and away from me unless you have permission to hunt on my land.

      When you’re being held up or shot at, you wait for your “TRAINED” law enforcement. Also, the people at the concert in Vegas were not allowed to have firearms as I’m sure the ones in Texas were not as well. And don’t think for a minute that all law enforcement are that well “TRAINED”.

      Both areas were GUN FREE ZONES. The zones set up by the libs are designed to allow the maximum amount of carnage before the police arrive. That way they can scream for common sense gun laws. The more people they get killed the better it is for their communist cause.

    There’s a but load of laws and provisions on the books to control and maintain responsible ownership. Unfortunately someone forgot to tell the bad guys. It comes down to that favorite saying “only the bad guys will have guns, the good guys follow the law.” Comes down to if someone wants to hurt someone they’ll make it happen. Here’s what people are missing: that psycho killed those people not the gun. My heart goes out to those who’ve lost and those lost.

      Sorry, but if good guys don’t have guns even if they are not allowed to because of over reaching unconstitutional laws, then they are slaves. I think of New Orleans after Katrina hit. Why did the citizens allow the police to take their guns? They physically removed guns from their hands while holding guns in their faces. Beat up an 80 year old woman who did not want to relinquish her only means of self defense. Went house to house and stole any gun on the property without consent from the owners who were forced to evacuate. For over two years it was against the law to have a gun in New Orleans city limits. Who had the authority to do this? Where did officials even derive the authority to do this? Local police not only allowed it to happen but were a part of it. Many gun owners still have not received their guns back. People in boats were rescuing others, the rescuers had guns for personal protection. Police in boats came up to them asked if they had weapons and were forced to hand them over AT GUN POINT. Disgraceful!!!!,

    This is a simple issue of firepower available to the average citizen. Available firepower has increased 100x in the last 60 years and the ability of the average citizen to manage that responsibility has not. Making high cap mags Class 3 solves the problem. No Class 3 holder has ever been a mass murderer. If one honestly thinks they’re going to be in a real fire fight, they can go Class 3 and get all the firepower they think they need. Keep in mind however, that the government will always have you out-manned and out-gunned and you’re paying to make sure it stays that way. That is of course unless you have access to satellite recon and call in a drone strike.

  17. Hammer November 8, 14:59

    Yes firepower has increased since way back but remember US citizens throughout our history have had the hi tech firepower for their time. Again, there are plenty of laws on the books they just need to be enforced. Fear a government that fears your guns. And i’m not going to disarm myself because some liberal thinks I need to because of their fears.

    Everywhere I go people are little bit safer.

    I live in redneck country. Almost everyone here has a gun, lots of folks have lots of guns. On the other hand, this area voted 76% for Bernie Sanders, who may even label himself a liberal, and is from a gun-toting state, Vermont.

    Lots of liberals are gun owners, gun users, concealed carriers, hunters, and will go to the ramparts to protect those rights. Here in redneck country, I don’t even know anyone who wants to take away our guns.

    To use the label “liberal” to mean “taking away our 2nd Amendment rights” is misleading in these parts.

    The problem with labeling people is that the label tries to cover too much at once, and can confuse the issues we need to discuss. Just because someone has guns does not mean he is in favor of gunning down schoolchildren or churchgoers. Or even a herd of deer, or all the ducks on the lake. And people who are afraid of guns are confusing the gun with the deed, or with the doer of the deed.

    What say we try to talk about the issues one at a time? It takes longer, but we might find out more in the meantime, maybe even solve some problems.

    Bottom line; anyone comes for my guns and ammo will get the business end. That goes for my constitutional rights as well. No more letting the supreme court dictate plain English to me much less liberal sociolists and communist versions or translations of our straight forward and unambiguous constitution. It’s written in plain English and does not need to be interpreted.
