Walmart removes firearms and ammunition from US store floors - Biggest US retailer cites recent civil unrest for decision

The inbreds are already armed to the teeth.  Go to the Deep South and county fairs provide more firepower and fewer checks. Army surplus stuff is always available 'under the table', just don't look foreign.

They probably don’t have any to sell anyway. They had something like 35 million FBI background checks by September which smashes all previous year records by some way (in just 9 months!), and they can buy multiple guns per check so getting a gun, any gun is difficult at the mo. I know, I’ve been trying to import a Mossburg 590 mariner for a few weeks without any luck.

Just playing on Google the USA has around 400m guns in civilian circulation.

Their military has 4.4m!

Obviously a wide eyed redneck is no match for a well trained soldier but that's still some stacked odds and enough to wreak havoc. 

Like Jim Jeffries said, taking on the government they are bringing guns to a drone fight.

And a tank, other armour, manned flying vehicle, naval warship, artillery fight (plus a lot of "civilian" police have access to military suplus, even if more parochial units have informal links to militia, etc).

Civil war perhaps.

Civil war perhaps.

It's happened before. 

Place might end up like a layer cake, Canada, North US and South US divided by the Mason-Dixon line (a consequence of civil war funnily enough). Push the northern capital back to Philadelphia and I guess Austin would rule the south. 

China would be the dominant economy by far and rapidly build on that lead.

Wasn’t “The Hunger Games” based metaphorically on the aftermath of a modern US civil war?

If you've ever been in one it's just crazy how casual it is. 

Excuse me where are the M16s? 

Just down there sir between the pool cues and fishing rods. 

Then ask could I buy a bottle of spirits and get looked at like your a terrorist!

No sir you will have to go to a liquor store 

Strange place

"You got any .50 cal armour peircing and some 7.62  250 round belts"

Yes sir,  just behind the Trump baseball caps and in front of the Bibles. 

On the other hand, federal law treats fifty caliber rifles no differently from other long guns, as do all but three states and the District of Columbia

. As of February 2018, the national registry of machine guns contained registrations for 638,260 machine guns

Isn't it?

Edge of town you get the parking lot with a Wendy's, gun store and a liquor store. 

Get fed, get tipsy, get even.

50 cal would do a lot of damage but they're heavy! Sort of thing you see stick on the back of a pickup truck in the dustier parts of the world.

Yeah it’s funny, but history is littered with examples of massively superior armies being surprisingly battered by a dedicated group of highly motivated armed individuals fighting a guerrilla war. And that is against a unified army, in the event of overthrowing a tyrannical government that would not be the case, it would be splintered with low moral and both side would get a sprinkling of fancy toys.

If the arms itself does not believe in the government they are not effective in this type of war.  Also armies against civilians is not easy, as innocent people get hurt the army becomes more unpopular.

Soviets didn't care after Hungary and Czechoslovakia.  China didn't care after Tienanmen Square either.
