    Lexington and Concord- the original and biggest FAFO.
    And that really is the only "is it time to start shooting yet?" litmus test we have. Which is why it's been gradual rather than the "big round up."

    On the upside, idiotic shit like the Clinton ban made the AR rifle the most popular rifle in the country and there are so many in private hands that even the most rabid gun grabbers know that the "big round up" would probably be catastrophic for them.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Which is precisely why they prefer to take us on individually or in very small groups, like the blatant premeditated murder of that Arkansas airport manager. Surprised they didn't do his dog, wife and kids first...

    Wise words that may be echoing back sooner than folks realize.


    I always think of the satirical article that goes around every so often:

    BREAKING NEWS: Seventy-Two Killed Resisting Gun Confiscation In Massachusetts.

    Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed on April 19 by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

    Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

    Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group's organizers as "criminals," issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government's efforts to secure law and order.

    The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

    One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that "none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily."

    Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government's plans.

    During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

    Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

    Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

    Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

    Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as "ringleaders" of the extremist faction, remain at large.

    Really changes the context from some historical myth to something more "real".
    It's f*****g great, putting holes in people, all the time, and it just puts 'em down mate, they drop like sacks of s**t when they go down with this.

    Lexington and Concord present day... possession, carry and transport of firearms, ammunition and feeding devices is banned absent a government issued license.

    He did virtually NOTHING to the Clinton administration, Janet Reno, the FBI or the ATF other than give them justification for bigger budgets and expansion of power.
    Obama's pal, Bill Ayers, is credited as a co-founder. Everyone should have heard of that name. Wife and co-founder, Bernadine Dohrn, should be commonly known as well. Those two are the most infamous. That said, present-day notoriety is largely the result of the connection to Obama. Without that connection I doubt that few would people today would have even heard the names. Heck, who would have otherwise heard of "GD America", Jeremiah Wright?

    Me and a couple of friends celebrated yesterday and today with much gunfire and the ringing of steel. Keeping the edge sharp.

    The DOJ announced that they were going after another thousand to the January 6 protesters. They’re hoping for a Lexington and Concord moment every time they go out.
    The Second Amendment ACKNOWLEDGES our right to own and bear arms that are in common use that can be used for lawful purposes. The arms can be restricted ONLY if subject to historical analogue from the founding era or is dangerous (unsafe) AND unusual.

    It's that simple.

    NOW do y'all see why as soon as the Ray Eppses started trying to talk up "go to the Capitol Jan 6" a bunch of us were saying "be as FAR from DC as you can that day"? They won't stop at just on Capitol grounds, or "adjacent" as they re now, or even "merely in DC" - sooner or later they are coming for ALL of us, it's just a matter of how fast they can swallow what they've already bitten off.

    Oh, to lead a Special Counsel inquisition into the seditious, anti-American heresy of the Deep State... the Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law charges would be getting handed out like Oprah audience gifts, and the entire J6 Committee would be getting Obstruction of Justice and Tampering With An Official Record for their destruction of evidence. Hit Pelosi with TWOR too for tearing up a Trump SOTU that by LAW is required to go to National Archives. Get those Big Red F's and Bar From Office hun on as many as possible...

    Wouldn't it be a glorious day for America when murdering scum like SS-Sturmbannfuehrer Byrd and the Waffen-ATF jackboots who murdered the Arkansas airport manager have to take it in the ass in back-alleys to get enough money to feed themselves? Ah, strike that, they'd probably just hire themselves out to organized crime as a new Murder Inc...

    That's what me and mine were all relaying to each other at the time: stay the **** away, at all costs, it's obviously going to be used against everyone.

    I think I recall you posting as much here, too. We tried... ideally nobody under 60-70 woulda shown up, let the Nazi piss-stains have fun with the nightmare optics of being livestreamed putting a beatdown on Granny and Gramps.
