Would you give them to the Govt? How about USGI .45s? What if they needed all USGI M-4s manufactured on the front lines and asked you if you would donate your QUALITY AR for Boot and target range work.

How about if the manufacturing Facilities were hit? How about if they asked for any OPTICs to be donated?

Truth is, there are not the manufacturing facilities there once was.

If we're that bad off, some personal guns won't make much difference.

They'd run out of people to carry the guns before they'd run out of guns.

Foolish question. I would be more worried about being drafted then give my guns to the DoD.

No problem... the only catch is that I come with the gun too.

Exactly!

They wouldn't want GUNS, they'd want trained people if they were truly desperate.

If there was a need, they could have my ARs and Garands and 1911s, but I'd be coming with them.

If it comes to that. I'm keeping my guns for defense.

Because we're probably getting invaded.

Package deal. Me and my guns.
The .gov provides ammo and targets. ( I might be inclined to bring my own ammo, but it will cost them more)
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:17:23 PM EDT
I would not give them shit. But if they want to pay me for protection.......
Link Posted: 3/14/2006 4:19:08 PM EDT
You forget, the Govt HAS asked for them before.

Was many many years ago, but it did happen. Also lend lease happened and they asked for certain types also. Don't think the Brit Govt ever returned them. or even bothered to.

That's about right, if the factories were hit we would already be under direct attack here in the states.

Nope.

I could spare a couple and still have plenty for me. I'd just give them my "heavy's".

I'd tell 'em to piss off.

No they'd be in use and not for sale or trade.

Forget nothing.
First thing I thought of when I saw the thread title.
Completely different situation.

Who was it that said 'I don't know what WWIII will be fought with, but WWWIV will be fought with sticks and stones.'?

Cute, but impractical scenario. You have no idea of the storage or manufacturing capabilities of our Nation.

Now if I were asked to donate a weapon to Israel to be used against the muslim hordes, I could probably scare up an SKS, or two.

I remember a line from one of the “Horseclans” novels where Duke Bili demanded that some noblemen give up their armor and horses to help supply the army.

One of the noblemen said something to the effect of, “Where my armor and horse go, I go also.”

If things get bad enough that the Military needs my rifle they can have it, but I’m the one going to be carrying it.

Gee, I'd love to help out, but, Hillary confiscated all my guns back in 2008.

They collected a lot of guns here in the US for the Brits to use in early WWII as they were poolry prepared(fancy that). They were supposed to be returned.

The Brits destroyed them.

Didn't this happen on a volunteer basis in WWII?

...

I'd help however I could... But I doubt it would include entire firearms. (not because I don't want them to have them, because I would be likely loaning them to family that didn't have any)

If it gets that bad, the govt. will have no need for small arms. I would give them any extra nukes I had laying around though.

I would, yes. I would even put my life at risk and if necessary give up my life to protect my family and this nation of ours from its enemies - foreign or domestic.

I would not give up all my guns.
