I am 0% concerned.
Confiscation would immediately trigger civil war. What many libs don't realize is that if that was to happen the military and police would NOT be on their side. The police already hate libs for obvious reasons and military personnel tend to be centrist or right leaning. Both sides are also pro second amendment.
The fantasy perpetuated by many on here about the military stepping in to take control defies conventional wisdom. Think about this:

What if silent running, n54yankee, jockey, adc, hooligan and any other veterans on here were called to take over because civilians lacked guns when they were serving? Would they?

No

I have great faith this (a military takeover) would never happen. Only if the troops were misinformed or ignorant (like the Chinese troops involved in tiananemen square).
ever read Seven Days In May? the book, not the movie.

I don't read many movies, especially in braille.

I'll look at reading it, after I'm done with my latest, rise and fall of the third reich.
