as government tries to take away guns, there will be confrontations and stand-offs.  I think a lot of folks would become criminals by refusing to relinquish their guns- 'pry it from my cold, dead hand' comes to mind. This is more than just a possession or means of protection, it's a culture verging on a religion.  No, if guns were outlawed, they would not be given up peacefully.  The gun advocates have enough trouble accepting that it should be harder for criminals to get guns.

One wonders if they prefer the criminals having guns to justify their owning guns.  I'm sure the gun lobby/industry loves that criminals have easy access to guns, as the more guns out there that we need to protect against, the more guns they'll sell to the rest of us.
