Old people and children will be trampled by those struggling to survive. The 9 hour documentary called "Showa", which I watched at the theater when it first came out, had the testimony of concentration camp survivors who had to clear out the dead bodies from the Nazi gas chambers after the victims were gassed. They said that, in every case, they noticed one thing that was quite striking...that the children and old people were always on the bottom of the piles of people struggling to get the last bit of good air at the top of the chamber. People will try to be civilized and dignified up until the very last moment that it is quite clear that they are going to die. There was no wild, or uncivilized or undignified, lashing out in a struggle to survive, no rebellion, just follow orders...until right before it was just too late do do anything meaningful about it. How do you think this could be relevent today? Any similarities? In trying to be dignified and civilized, people will continue to vote for tweedle dee (Democrats) or tweedle dumber (Republicans) and believe they really have no other choice. Instead of using their advantage of a massive display of revolt against tyranny they will continue to play the rigged voting game. Maybe the ruling elite will set up chamber music ensembles at the entrances of every poll station and put up signs that says "Voting will make you free!". "See there, Hannah, what did I tell you....the music...the sign 'Arbeit mact frei'...we are just being resettled to work camps until the war is over...so let's not risk being shot...we'll survive!"
Don't buy the idea that we need to give up our guns just because an occasional nut kills a few people. The Nazis sure didn't want the people (especially the Jews) to have guns. The Jews (some of them anyway) eventually did fight back. But the "civilized" ones went to the gas chambers. And when you look at the things, like NDAA, that Obama signed into law...you had better hang on to your guns.
