If that were to happen, there will be isolated fights between fed and citizens, in which the government will try to paint the picture as "terrorist acts" to try to pin the rest of the population against the freedom fighters.
Military will be brought in, against the State's will, blowing the whole thing up.
Not going to happen any time soon.
But it isn't just Washington. Other states, counties and individuals are saying that they have no intention of complying. The lines are being drawn in the sand. The states appear to being trying to reclaim their authority they lost due to the out come of the Civil War. Hell, Arizona and the administration have been waging a legal battle over this for a couple of years now (nothing to do with guns). Individuals also are taking stands for their rights. Look at the DC and Chicago gun cases. Not to mention the people of New York State saying they have no intention of abiding by the recent law passed. Now the fed can try and claim all of these individuals and states are terrorists but, they are going to have a hard time selling that.
And to be clear, I only said these are the type of actions that LEAD to civil wars, not necessarily start them. Though, if there is any truth to Obama applying a litmus test to his military commanders to see if they would fire on Americans, I think you will see things escalate very quickly. And also, if that is actually happening, he ain't just planning to disarm the country, he's planning on staying in power.
