Anytime a gun advocate comes up against a good argument,  he backs into something along this line… Well, Hitler had all the guns registered and you saw what happened there, didn’t you?

First, what happened in Germany in 1932, could happen here….. lol. or more likely, it could not..   Using an argument that has no relevancy does little to help us move forward and take away every NRA sanctioned gun…   I kid again.  For underlying that sentiment, the reason the NRA and gun nuts are so uptight, is that they think their guns will get taken away….  Although that sounds absolute perposterous to a normal American, … based on our history, they do have a point…..  We once took alcohol away… Made it completely illegal… And,  I just discovered this today,  the Fed’s poisoned alcohol and put it out for public consumption, thinking that dying would cause people to shun the stuff….  10,000 died  and  it caused more people to drink than ever…..

So let us not put it past the Rick Santorums, you know those sanctimonous types who think their morals are so extreme that all America needs to become like them?   Just like birth control, he will try to take your guns…

If the Republicans do try and confiscate weaponry,  how would they go about it?  They would use the ATF.  That is the old name; it is now known as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives or in short form:  ATF (it never changed)….

The ATF agents are the specials of the class special agents.  They are the only agents authorized to enforce every aspect of  the U. S. Code…  The ATF employees roughly 5000, out of which 2400 are special agents.

There are estimates as high as 330 million firearms are scattered in homes across the country.  The current estimate is that the number ranges between 42 and 55 million households that have at least one weapon.   as you can see, the average household has 6 weapons per home…..

So, let us test the rationality behind the fear of “coming to take your guns away, shall we?

Let’s ask the question, … if we have 2400 ATF agents trying to confiscate 330 million guns in 55 million households….. how many years would it take?

Now we have to figure out a time frame,  can they do 10 in one day?  I think that would be too high of a number.  They would have to scout the house first and take a read to determine if it will be a simple operation, or a Waco Texas Gun Battle….  So, I would “guestimate” that  each agent should average one household a day…  He’d work on scouting the house from 8-3pm then go up, knock on the door, and for the next hour, try to get the gun.

At first, assuming we aren’t yet going to Puerto Rico,  let’s divide those ATF’s up into a certain number per state…..   Nice round number… 48 agents get their papers to go to each state…  They check into a hotel, they check out the internet connection, they go down to the bar…

So, the plan is to do each state and after a state gets completely rounded up, those agents head to California to assist the 48 who have the largest population to cover….

So, 55 million households divided by 2400 agents investigating a household every single day….   hmmm… yep… let’s see…

Rounded up, that would take 22,917 days….   not bad…   so in years divided by 365.25 to include leap year….. hmmmm.. yep… let’s see….

62.72 years…  actually… ( using the original total not rounding up by a third of a day).. Using the rounded total above, it would rise to… 62.74 years…

Oh wait…  We are talking Federal Employees here… They need time off.   Oops!  We just figured they’d work with no time off for 63 years…  so, .. since there are 52 weeks in a year, that means for each year we will have to subtract a day off for Saturday, and one off for Sunday… or 104 days a years.. While we are at it, lets give them vacations too!  So add 10 days to each years total!   So if we put that into the formula… and add it for every year, 114 days across the 62 and 3/4ths years… …  hmmm… yep… let’s see…  we will have to add on 7151.7 more days….   Therefore our total total would be…. 30069.7 days… or in years….  82.3 years….

So… if we start in 2017 when “Sanctimonious Santorum” gets sworn in and begin confiscating all the firearms in US households….. the task will be completed by the beginning of the new century… We’d be starting a new Century with no guns….

Oh yes, During this time frame, forget about ATF involvement in illicit drug investigations. . Forget about ATF involvement in explosions.  Forget about  checking for smuggling.  Forget about ATF involvement in checking the level of tar and nicotine inside of cigarettes… Forget about everything they do.   Every agent for the next 82+ years, is rounding up guns at the rate of one household a day….

News Flash!!!!!!   It’s not going to happen.  Even if we violated the Constitution and brought all our troops back home and told them to confiscate guns (they’d refuse to obey of course)….  I’m just being theoretical….  having a force of 1.5 million scattered across the country, all in hotel rooms on the taxpayer’s tab, with Internet capacity and a bar downstairs…  at one household a day, it would still take over a month… ..  roughly 40 days…

It would be an awesome time to attack the US.  There would be no soldiers stationed anywhere internationally (Ron Paul would jump for joy) to defend us…  But local hotels would love it..  At $100 per diem, the industry would be raking in $150,000,000…. every single day…

So gun enthusiasts, put this argument behind you.  It is impossible. No one is coming for your guns…  We are simply going to ban military weaponry,  eliminate some huge ammo clips, and register every single gun owner, and make them go through a psychological evaluation….  No big deal . It’s just getting a license to drive your car… And… no one is going to confiscate cars either, even though they do kill  more people per year than guns….

I must say. I’m slightly perplexed. You can argue this with the NRA that no one is coming for their guns until you are blue in the face! So why has no one ever done the math before?   Obviously the math makes the NRA’s argument completely inane…  Simple math proves it is impossible to come and take everyone’s gun away… Period…  You’d almost think Grover Norquist was working for the NRA….. oops…

Now, lets all work together and stop these suicidal shooters from taking more innocent lives…
