This probably ain’t the message the Gummint wants to send, but it IS what they are telling us: having heavy weapons and pointing them at the cops allows you to commit crimes without paying the price for your actions, while your being unarmed allows the cops to randomly shoot your a** without them having to pay the price for their actions.
Consider: it’s been MONTHS since the BLM ran away from Bundy’s moocher militia, and no one has been arrested, no one will be arrested, and indeed, other armed groups are taking notice and planning to do likewise. Nothing succeeds like succcess.
Last week, several unarmed black men were shot by a**hole cops, and nothing has been done to punish the perps there, either. So we can expect more cops to be wasting unarmed people in the future, because, hey, why not? It worked in St Louis, LA, Ferguson, New York, and elsewhere.
The lesson being taught is: carry big guns, and lots of them, and you can ignore the law of the land. Whether you are a civilian or not, all you need is to point weapons at people, maybe even kill a few, and the gun makes it OK.
Which is bulls***. This is supposed to be a nation of laws. But when you start letting people get away with crimes, it creates a climate of lawlessness, and innocent people suffer and the guilty get off scot-free. And more people decide that having lots and lots of really big guns is the key to success in life.
It is scarcely necessary to mention the other difference: those with guns are almost all white, and those being peaceful are almost all black. But a group of African -Americans are changing that around: a black militia group is organizing in Dallas.
Not so coincidentally, they are doing this after the cops allowed white people to terrorize black people via an open-carry march.
White and aggressive (free to commit crimes) vs. black and passive (be the victims of crimes). Looks like some in the black community have had enough of that s***: they are adopting methods from the Black Panthers and waving their big guns right back at we honkies and our big guns. This is not going to end well.
Of course, the government COULD enforce the law and put Bundy and the killer kops in jail where they belong. Absent that, look for anarchy and armed citizens to bring the country crashing down around us.
