Okay...here goes Gents....Last night I saw/heard that due to N.O. Looters running rampant with AK's that the mean greens were called in to disarm the AK weilding privateers...and I can fully understand and appreciate the need to disarm AK weilding looters but...here's the catch...

Looters are Looters but...Orders To Disarm Joe Civilian are just that...now here's the theoretical scene...imagine...

You've just been subjected to a natural disaster...there's looters and mayhem everywhere...and now you're standing guard on the porch or rooftop of your own home, family and supplies with your top end SHTF rifle/carbine/arm...then along comes a truckload of M4 Tot'in National Guardsmen and acting on orders to "Disarm The People"....demanding that you now surrender your favorite SHTF arm to them...knowing that they are not there to offer any help or assistance except to collect your last means of defense and protection then drive away with it....leaving you effectively disarmed.

So here's my question...

Whatchagonnado?......hand it over?....beg to keep it?....or?...

Just salute'em then casually step inside and flip the safety to the fire position?

And I only ask cause I was left wondering just what the he11 I would do in such a situation after seeing and hearing the directives handed out last night in N.O.

T.I.A. for your thoughts and opinions and....L8R, Bill.

Give them one. Then go get another.

Why did you let them SEE the gun?


Why did you let them see YOU?

If it were my last rifle, this is where the phrase "out of my cold dead hands" applies. I would rather die as a free man than die unarmed at the hands of the looters.

No doubt.

Don't let the looters, or anyone else see you until the looting begins. Then pop out from around cover and cap one looter. The rest see their buddy fall, not sure where the shot came from, and run like hell.

Only one round expended.

"You guys gonna shoot me for this legally owned rifle while I'm sitting on my own property?" Then step inside and dare them to come inside for it. Thats my default Texan response.

Jedi mind trick. "These aren't the rifles you're looking for".

You openly display a rifle to make a point to the looters. If The Man confiscates your rifle it likely means that some sort of order is being restored. Go get another rifle from the safe and be more discrete about displaying it. Repeat as necessary.

It's why God invented Romanian .22 trainers. Why should LEOs be the only ones to have drop guns

I'd give them my .22 and keep the .38

Okay..it's apparent that I obviously didn't inject enough "imagination" into this could become very real situation so...lemme kick it up a notch by downgrading the situation....

Flood waters are moving in rapidly...ya grab a makeshift float/tub for your supplies...to escort your family out of there...and your wife and small children AREN'T the brilliant tactically trained sniper/tactician that you are...and somehow?...while making sure little Joey didn't step in a hole and drown...or seeing it to that the water didn't sweep little Annie away...and all while walking through gators festing on dead bodies?.....you accidently exposed your CAR slung over your shoulder....then police or guardsmen hollar out..."GIVE IT UP!!!"

btw...I like the "These ain't the guns you're looking for." answer.

But unfortunantly...I don't think that would fly for some reason.

Also...I'm just playing devils advocate here gents so please don't get all knotted up....but in mulling just such thoughts over last night I figured....damn...what goods a SHTF arm if they're gonna disarm ya "when you need it most" anyways?....Kind of a disappointing thought but.....with all the @$$wipe AK zombies popping off at anything and everything?...I figure the proper answer is..let'em all stay armed....then not only give permission but...request that the good guys help blow hell outta of the twisted looting zombie bad guys...and "Police Your Own"...cause we got better things to do....like...save the desperate and dying.

What say you?

Dont display your weapons. Jealous neighbors will report you and those confiscating weapons will try to take it even if your simply defending your home. Use what you dont want confiscated. Thats why I keep two of everything just in case.

If it really comes down to it say "Fvck no!" and take up a defensive position. Hopefully they'll leave you alone if you're only defending your home cause they have bigger fish to fry (looters, etc..)

I don't have any guns. I lost them all in a tragic boating accident.

A good soldier never gives up is weapon. That weapon in this situation is just as important as your water supply, you will be in a bad way without either.

We made the mistake of disarming honest folk in the former Yugoslavia, thanks to a certain now retired General / former Democratic presidential nominee and his clueless cronies.

We had a different administration in Iraq and Afghanistan, and have not made the same mistake.

Do you honestly believe that we would allow Iraqis to keep AK's but would confiscate legally owned weapons from honest folks here at home? Any such order would come from the governor, not the Federal govt - I can't imagine the LA governor is THAT stupid. Keep taking your Prozac until the black helicopters turn into butterflies.

Don't act like a threat to Joe Public and you will not be perceived as one. From some of the stuff I have read here on this board, though - there are many threats to Joe Public that need to be eliminated - some of them post here. That is where the discretion of the individual Joe on patrol comes in.

Here in PA, the only folk who are allowed to display arms in public once a disaster has been declared are CCW permit holders. And they have to have the permit displayed, much like a hunting license. This doesn't mean that some ignorant cop or NG troop might not try to disarm you anyways. In theory, if you stay on your property, you're okay. But again, cops and NG troops aren't known for knowing the laws they supposed to be enforcing in such a situation. They get told "disarm anyone you see", etc, I imagine.

If I'm on my own property, I'll say "I'm not threatening anyone who isn't trying to steal from me", and "I'll go inside now. Don't try to enter my house uninvited". If they enter, they get every loaded mag I've got, bullets first. If they go on their merry way, no problem.

My neighbors would shit themselves if they knew what kind of hardware I have here. Most of them aren't even "hunters", so they probably don't have much. But seeing scary black guns ought to give any of them who are thinking of running wild serious pause.

AND I guarentee you and your family will be alot safer if there's a guard outside waiting for you to surrender. I'd rather be arrested after it's over and my family is safe than comply and leave them defenseless.

Century Arms has Turkish 8x57 Mausers in shootable (not great) condition for 5/$175. $15 shipping; $38 a piece for C&R or 01 holders.

Ammo is cheap, too.

Not an AR, no. But better than a sharp stick.

News flash...

The National Guard will not be crusing residential neighborhoods looking for guns.
They have way more important business than that...

This hurricane is a REAL emergency- not a fantasy scenereo conjured up to impose gun control on the nation.

And "shoot the National Guardsman" posts ARE the same as "shoot the cops" posts and will get you banned.

That's where I draw the line. If they insist on disarming me in the midst of a disaster, I will use whatever force necessary to keep my means of defending myself. I am sure they are all good guys doing a tough job, but that isn't my concern, it's theirs.
