Go read this piece from The Lizard Farmer. Go now and read it in it's entirety.
Here is the money quote,
"That brings me to another point that you have sorely overlooked. You
see Jim some people spend the majority of their adult life in the
military. Some get out after a few years. Some spend their entire
careers training and honing the skills to fight and have actual
experience that has honed those skills. That population includes not
only regular troops but special operations veterans as well. A
conservative estimate would be there’s thousands that still take their
oaths seriously – and among them is a large percentage of experts
capable of training an insurgency unlike anything ever seen on the
planet. Bring all of the technology you want – helos, armor, drones, it
doesn’t matter. Guys like me are all over the population and have the
skills and experience to interdict those systems. Are we the threat?
Nope – the people we’re going to train would be. You can scream “That’s
illegal!” and yeah it is. But you would have already made us all
criminals by implementing an unconstitutional law. Some men (and women)
so strongly believe in freedom and liberty that they will
resist. And given that the atrocities you would have to execute to
reach the goal of complete disarmament would make those numbers
consistently grow. It’s all Insurgency 101."
The matter is stated clearly and in a concise manner. Anyone on the other side, suggesting the wrong course of action, would do well to read this first.
