Even though our right to bear arms is protected in the constitution. Legislators try to continually place restrictions on this freedom. If laws were passed that disallowed these rights, I am wondering what would be an appropriate response from a civil disobedience perspective. Would anyone consider blatantly disobeying such laws? Or would you comply in an attempt to continue being a law abiding citizen? What do you feel is your responsibility and what would you be willing to risk in order to resist gun banning legislation?

All I can say is"Welcome to my world". Living in Illinois, my rights are infringed upon each and every day. The more North you go in the state, the more stricter the gun laws are. All you can do is keep fighting for your rights, and hope you get someone in Office that feels the way you do, and changes it. As far as blatantly disobeying any law is something I refuse to discuss on a public forum. ;)

Personally, I consider it unwise to state in a public forum any attempt to disobey a law unless your intention is to get press for civil disobedience.

Actually, I think this is a great place for the discussion. The liberal anti-gun group are a bunch of chicken sh!ts and just like the high school bully, they aren't going to attempt anything unless they are sure that they can win.

This country was founded by men stating and standing by their beliefs. I think we need to let it be known that we are not going to stand for it.

I don't believe that anything I might say on this forum could hardly be held against me.... let's not forget the First Amendment.

For me, "From my cold dead hands" means exactly what it says. If that's civil disobedience, then count me in.

SK.... my 2 cents...

I've got too many lawyers in my family and social circle which included a prosecutor, to be quite so cavalier about advocating breaking the law on a public forum. "From my cold dead hands" is sufficiently removed as to not concern me.

The specific scenario I would be concerned about is saying I will carry concealed wherever I don't have to pass through security. If you are subsequently caught either by accident or as a result of an SD incident, you no longer have the excuse that "I just forgot" even if it is true.

There are those of us that have taken a VERY SOLEUM OATH to "Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America against ALL ENEMIES, foreign and DOMESTIC"!!! If I was willing to "put my butt on the line" (to de-facto execute that oath) when I was in my 20's (with most of my life in front of me) imagine what I might be willing to do now that I'm in my 60's.
