Would it be easy to wage a guerilla war in the US since assault weapons are so readily available?

Hmm, you'd have to have a reason to wage a guerilla war. Which right now there isn't. We love our country.

That wasnt the question. The question is whether or not it is feasible.

Uhh, if u checked, these type of wars usually occur in countries where guns r controlled and the population is defensless.

Central america has trouble with these type of wars, it is nearly impossible to for a citizen to own a weapon. These type of bandits, for lack of a better word, terrorize the citizens, stealing food and money from them and threatening them to remain quiet about their activities. Every situation is different. But, as a general rule, an armed citizenry will cause trouble for guerillas. They would be fighting both they national army as well as the citizens. Poeple fight harder to defend their own property, than thieves fight to steal. One of the ways, unfortunately, these governmenst fight back, is to impose harsher gun control laws on the citizens. They r defensless and stuck in the middle.

No. A poorly trained force fighting against the most professional army in the world can only survive because of it's ability to strike fast, retreat, and blend in with the local population. Around here i doubt the local population, especially the gun-owning population, would be very friendly to the guerillas. with the military on one side and the (armed) civilian population on the other, they'd be stuck between a rock and a hard place.

thechimera is clearly stupid. The United States military is the best in the world. I'd like to see an example of one that's better (no, that doesn't mean *larger*).

As far as the question goes, it would be easy to wage a guerilla war in the US, but not because of the availability of assault weapons; rather, it would be because of the large centers of population and numerous opportunities for cover.

Assuming this warfare was being conducted on a foreign intruder, the availability of weapons would facilitate resistance on a broad scale, but it wouldn't be the only factor.

This question does not deserve a response. Ridiculous.

Nope. The law which was left to expire - by Congress, not the President - had nothing to do with assault rifles or other automatic weapons, any more than letting part of the Patriot Act expire means they've banned patriotism.

Most folks are too lazy or too busy watching TV and playing video games or trying to be a rock star for that to happen...

It is always easy to start a guerilla war, just thrown a molotov roostertail into the street, there's the beginning of your war.
