Gun-Grabbers Vs Math: Even the Wildest Anti-2A Fantasies Are Doomed To Fail

Written by Captain Dave Funk on March 28, 2018

It’s been widely reported that on March 7th, a Democratic Candidate for Sheriff in West Ashville, North Carolina by the name of R. Daryl Fisher was asked what he would do if the gun laws he is advocating for were passed and people refused to surrender their firearms. To this question: “…pry my gun from my cold dead hands…?”, his reply was: “OK”.

A few days ago, reported this:

New York Congressman Tom Suozzi (D) is taking heat for suggesting that a room full of voters may need to take up arms against the Trump administration if he doesn’t follow the law.

Besides the obvious tacit acknowledgement that the Second Amendment is about preventing our government from having a monopoly on power, I would ask the obvious: whom are you going to call, Mr. Fisher or Rep. Suozzi? A bunch of leftist, gun hating, Tide-Pod eating kids? We all know that the Democrats/leftists will lose any second American civil war, just like they lost the first one.

But those kids are now calling for the outlawing and confiscation of all firearms in the United States. Let’s ask them about the logistics of finding and seizing the over 500 million firearms in America.

There are 199,672,842 acres of land in just the lower 48 states. Let’s do the math:
199,672,842 acres Divided by maximum of 250,000 trained searchers (it will take time to screen, hire and train them).

That would be 798.691 acres per searcher (45,560 square feet per acre), if they worked alone at least a three days per acre = 19,168.59 hours based on eight hours per day of work (union contracts after all!)

At normal full time employment rates of 2000 work hours per year, it would take 9.58 years to search just the lower 48 States for guns, assuming the entire search force would actually survive the process, unlike back in 1776 when American’s just shot the British troops who showed up to take their arms and ammunition.

From 41,000 feet in the air, it’s pretty clear that what an old Captain once told me is true; “The Clueless Always Are”. These clown don’t have a clue.
