People sure did give their guns away when their lives were threatened by the US army. During the Katrina catastrophe innocent citizens got their guns illegally taken away by US army. Their power demonstration showed what (((they))) will do when they truly want to disarm the US citizens. You rather die than give your guns away truly? That was what the innocent Katrina citizens faced.

Want proof?

Katrina sure did expose the National Guard's willingness to obey unconstitutional orders against Americans. It definitely destroyed the whole "the military won't act against citizens" nonsense.


There's a flip side to this. The people that had their guns taken were lone holdouts in a city that was largely abandoned. So, sure, a group of 10 National Guardsmen kicking in the door of someone holed up by themselves after the storm was effective. However, a SHTF scenario is a horse of an entirely different color. Katrina was a hurricane not a civil war. When evacuation isn't an option and your only choice is to stand and fight, I promise there won't be many firearms confiscated. They'll try, let there be no doubt, but there won't be many takers.
