There is always talk of banning firearms and having the police and military start confiscating them. It won’t happen. There are two big reasons:
The majority of cops fall into two camps: they are also gun and freedom loving people who will refuse (this is the minority), or they are cowards with badges who care more about maintaining their pensions and benefits than they do about protecting the public.
To prove point one, all one has to do is look at what happened in Parkland, where most of the responding police officers hid outside while shots could be heard inside of a school. That was cops pacing just one lightly armed teen in a school. What do you think they will do, how motivated will they be, when faced with a trained, well armed, pissed off nation of even a few thousand gun owners?
