I know the Duffel Blog is satirical, kind of like a military version of the Onion. Then there’s articles like this that make wonder.

WASHINGTON, DC – A senior U.S. general has confirmed that the military has secretly drawn up plans to round up large numbers of privately-owned firearms from American gun owners.
General James M. Scott of the U.S. Air Force confirmed that the Pentagon received a series of formal directives from the White House between November 7 and December 13 to begin plans for a massive nationwide operation to confiscate guns using a series of federal databases compiled over the last few decades.

I know that if such an order was given, there would be a lot of pushback from the troops and field commanders. It still doesn’t quell that tiny threeper screaming in the dark recesses of my mind.
