Theatre's a con trick. Do you know what that means?
That every SWAT-trained officer in the country is pressed into service. Unlikely That no local police departments would opt out of serving unconstitutional Federal gun warrants.
Unlikely That all raids would be successful. Unlikely That each successful raid would net an average of three contraband semi-auto rifles. Possible That every Door Kicker would get an equal share in the work. Very unlikely That every Door Kicker would be alive and well through the entire campaign of terror—with no incapacitating injuries or deaths of SWAT officers, no refusals, no resignations, and no early retirements.
Very unlikely A lot of those are not safe assumptions.
Here are the division equations: Every officer would have to survive gun-grabbing raids. Those of course are fanciful numbers. There will be a lot of false tips, and there will be many owners who keep their guns very well-hidden. Each of those raids would have nearly the same high level of risk but yet many of them would net zero guns.
And it is likely that many police departments will wisely decline involvement. The real number would be much higher.
For some historical context: Here is some sobering ground truth: Resistance Strategy and Tactics Rather than meeting the police one-at-a-time on their doorsteps, I predict that resisting gun owners will employ guerilla warfare strategy and tactics to foil the plans of the gun grabbers: They will successfully hide the majority of their banned guns.

It has now been 73 years since the end of WWII. So the gun registration noncompliance in Europe is now multi-generational. This is commonly called leaderless resistance.
Such cells are very difficult to detect or penetrate. These resistance cells will carefully choose the time and location of their attacks, to their advantage. They will individually target the legislators who voted for unconstitutional gun ban legislation. They will individually target any outspokenly anti-gun police chiefs.
They will pillage or burn down the facilities where confiscated guns are being stored and destroyed. They will anonymously phone in false police reports about gun control advocates.Introductory Proviso: The following essay on possible gun confiscation is a purely conjectural gedankenexperiment about the future that extrapolates from recent history and current grupobittia.comg herein is seditious (per 18 U.S.

I just posted a long essay (pdf available here) on my website, exploring how psychology can help explain the difference between the feeling of security and the reality of security.. We make security trade-offs, large and small, every day.
