We are at the point in this country where threatening to not vote for politicians again is not sufficient. Politicians who routinely ignore the constitution, over step their authority and ignore the will of the people need to be run out of town on rails (if not hung from the lamp posts).

Traditionally, those run out on a rail were given a tar and feather bath as well. :chairbang:

Maybe as a mid-step before getting to that extreme, more of us should start running for office ourselves.  Make it a point - even though you know you're likely to lose - to get up there and rattle some chains.  And in this day and age, get a like-minded bunch of friends and do the advertising on the cheap:  internet and social media, if creatively used, can replace a substantial part of the millions of dollars worth of old-style advertising most politicians still buy.

Somehow, I find this previous thread to be relevant:
http://www.gopbriefingroom.com/index.php?topic=131191.0

How long until that happens here?

Could its happening here become the only way to stop America's slide towards a near-totalitarian police state?

A mass refusal to register guns is a good first step.  It demonstrates to those who want to disarm us that we will not be disarmed.

And there's not a damned thing they can do about it. 

If Eric Holder thinks it's OK for Attorneys General to not enforce laws they disagree with, it's only logical to conclude the rest of us can do the same thing.

In spirit, I agree with you.

But -- the grim reality is that they ARE going to "do something about it" in my state (CT).

The state gun grabbers are laying low for the moment, but I sense that behind the veil, they are quietly "gathering the information" that they will need to compile a list of "holdouts".

They'll scrouge the federal instant-check records if they can.
They'll probably scrounge gun shop records.
They may even try to track down ammo purchases (such as who bought .223 and .556).

Once they have enough info, they'll act.
With the support of the governor and legislature.

That's how it's going to be in the "new slavery" states (such as Connecticut, New York, Maryland, California, also soon-to-be Rhode Island and New Jersey). The citizens' Second Amendment rights are going to be taken away, unless the U.S. Supreme Court at some point steps in to stop them. Whether it will do so remains unknown, particulary if Obama gets another liberal justice due to death or retirement.

New Jersey may be on the verge of passing new anti-gun laws that outlaw even .22 rifles. See this article in the Washington Times:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/feb/28/new-jersey-bill-is-outright-gun-ban-on-22-caliber-/

From time to time, on this site and on others (such as "TOS") I see the phrase repeated again and again: "if they want my guns, let them come and take them!".
Strong words, from brave men.
But so far, it's been rhetoric.
In states like Connecticut, it will soon turn into reality.
Let's see what happens then...

The government is begging for a physical confrontation. They didn't buy all that ammunition to go skeet shooting. They are after We, the People.

Absolutely.  They will gladly spare a few SWAT goons for an incident like this.  It will provide the perfect excuse for even more clampdowns like we've never seen before in this country.  And most of the sheep will Baa: "They need to do this, to keep us safe...."  It is stunning how far we've fallen.

310,000,000 potential targets.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

And they expect local police departments to put all those "free" gubmint-supplied armored anti-riot vehicles to good use, too.

As  near as I can tell this is an ex post facto law and unconstitutional - if that means anything li -li- liberaland.
