Comply, or die.

Because they have no friends, or popular support from the rest of the country.

And that's the end of the redneck delusion of over throwing a tyrannical government.

My god.


That is an absolutelyamazing post.

Thank you so much!!!!

You really should move to north Korea. It sounds right up your alley.
Thanks from Braveheart

Are you dense? What do you think it means to have an armed group "Squashed like bugs?" You need a diagram?

I tend to agree, but not out of ideological collusion but because it is the reality of things. However, your tone is quite interesting as you are cheering on a police state, and you are almost giddy to see this country become openly totalitarian (as it has been subtly and rather covertly for some time now) and authoritarian in nature.

Fascinating. You'll probably be the first to get thrown against the wall. Well, next to me and Beasty.

A 12 guage shotgun in pump action variety are all the same whether they are 5 shot or 8 shot with 18, 20, or 24 inch barrels are multi purpose for police or hunting, which if used for hunting must only have 3 shots in it if you inspected by a game warden if you are in the field.

Scalia was just giving an example of just one type of an unusually dangerous weapon. Of which an AR or AK with a 30 or 40 round magazine could certainly be considered in that category.
And Scalia proved the theory that if you give them an inch they will take a mile... The sawed-off shotgun ruling was flawed, for reasons stated above.... But the left has latched onto Scalia's statement and is using it as a lever to justify including more (assault ?? weapons for now) weapons in gun prohibition... and eventually confiscation....

So??????..... General Vo Giap, started out as a history teacher, and he used the lesson of guerilla warfare as practiced by the Colonists against the British as his template for using his Viet Minh against the French and then us...

And just like your distraction of us being supported by the French...the North Vietnamese we supported by the Soviets.... Point is that a determined people (a Militia) with weapons shooting guns from behind trees, using hit and run tactics can defeat even the strongest Armies over time..

I see I sent another one over your pointy little head, didn't I??....I know we are in the 21st Century (barely)....But, I am using an example from only 50 years ago..... too long ago??...How about the mujaheddin doing the same thing to the Russians in A-Stan in the '80s..??

The point is that a dedicated, diligent and motivated group of relatively untrained (a Militia) with inferior weapons can stand up to and frustrate an advanced Army... .History has proven it...
