    It's good to have the Nazzi sympathizers, confederate flay flyers, and anti-vaxxers on your side!

    You’ve got to be kidding! 
       And yet you and the media ignore the associations made by radicals like antifa and black panthers?

    I was under the impression that we were to defend ourselves against enemies both foreign and domestic, up to, and including a tyrannical government. 
    If the previous statement is true, who gets to declare who is the terrorists, and who are the patriots? The winners? History?
    this is more of a rhetorical question than a judgement one way or the other on the above action.

    You seem to be confused as to who your enemy is.

    Mike, you forgot to read the entire post, much less quote it. Let’s not pick and choose here. The first part sets the tone for the second and third. 
    BTW Friday night I was serenaded by 3 Whippoorwills. It was very calming. 

    Edited Ed because I originally did an even worse job of explaining myself than now.

    Thanks.  I read the whole thing, including the 2nd part that started with "If the previous statement is true".  And that's just it....the first part is not true, which was the point of my sarcastic response: The government is not our enemy -- even with all their mistakes -- the virus is.

    I'm sure your whippoorwills are much more calming than the limpkins braying all night.  On the bright side, a pair of mallards decided to bed under my back deck and now have 13 10 babies swimming around the pond. :)

    Sooner or later one of those guns, either by a protester, or a regular joe claiming to feel threatened by them, is going to get used. 

    They will deserve what they got coming for menacing people with guns. 

    I'm sure that they will just use their no one could of seen it coming mantra as they complain about the injustice and mop up the blood of cowards.

    With tensions running high, you might be right. I’m a bit of a preppier, as we all should be. My goal is to come out of any disturbance with as little face to face contact as possible. The absolutely last thing I want to do is shoot another human being. That being said, if my family is at risk, I have had to condition myself to accept that possibility. No matter how remote.

    The flip side of that, are you prepared to be shot and killed? If you plan on confronting another person with a gun, you had better be as prepared to die as well as shoot them. 

    I always hear people say they don't want to shoot another person, they fail to consider the other guy might get a shot off first. 

    So are you prepared to die? If you plan on defending yourself against the federal government, you better be.

    I would never ever confront a person(s) unless there was absolutely no other way out. And if it came down to my wife and kids, and grandkids, I would hope I’m not selfish enough not to die to save them. That being said, no one knows exactly what they are going to do until a situation comes up. That is why I try to mentally toughen myself for that scenario. As far as fighting the government, flight is a better option than fight. 

    Edited to add. I’ve only had to pull a gun on someone once. Years ago I was coming back from a dove hunt when a carload of fellers got right on my bumper. After a mile or so they ran up beside me and forced me off the road.  As they jumped out,I grabbed my browning over and under and leveled down.  They jumped back in their car, spraying gravel all over me and my truck. Once the shaking ended I realized the shotgun was empty.

    You need to kill them ss they are diluting the gene pool with our Mottled duck.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Zero possibility of that being media propaganda

    On one hand sometimes the Government needs to realize we're not going to take everything they say lying down and it's good for them to realize this is an Armed County that will fight back if needed.
    Just wish the Armed Protesters would dress nice and act Civilized..with a Full Mag....

    If the feds want to get rid of you all they have to do is erase all your records.  Guns aren't needed.  And your guns  won't protect you from cyberwar.

    Actually that would be doing a big favor.

    That's Ieshia Evans. She was a licensed nurse at a peaceful police brutality protest in Baton Rouge who was arrested and detained despite not being armed or hostile.

    Actually that has nothing to do with privilege. In the first photo protestors were illegally blocking a highway and were ordered to move. 

    In the second they are inside a building where they were legally allowed to be even if they were idiots. 
    Exactly.  We had the same issues in Memphis a few years ago.  Folks were blocking highways and preventing people from getting home.  And *some* folks didn't understand why they were arrested.  Well because they were illegally gathering and were infringing on the rights of others.  Many of my coworkers literally took 3-4 hours to get home, when it should have taken 30 minutes.  But some folks like ignoring facts and creating a story where there is none.

    Fact is certain people need to realise if one has to lie to make a point, they aren't really making a point.

    That's funny coming from the guy that loves to throw around well-worn anti-Semitic tropes lightly masked in conspiracy theories.
