My husband owns guns. Last Winter we were woken up in the middle of the night to sounds in our driveway. Strange car parked in our driveway.

Husband got out his gun, BUT called 9/11. No CRIME had been committed, but police still came within 10 minutes. They questioned the driver and found out he was out he was our next door seasonal neighbor. He couldn't get into his own driveway which had over a foot of snow on it.

Why did police even bother to come????? Should husband have gone out at 2 AM with a loaded gun and pointed it at the driver who turned out to be our neighbor? He apologized to us for not letting us know he was coming.

WHY did the police even come? No robbery had ever occurred. Police are only there to solve a crime AFTER it has occurred, right?

It's to the point where you feel only YOU are a true citizen, while anyone who doesn't have your obsession isn't one.
No, a big part of my identity is being a rational human being, and not feeling obliged to continue to humor irrational paranoid overgrown children's power fetishes when smart public policies behooves that we move in a different direction.

Randomly killing people that have never harmed or stole from you, is evil.
Ah, your true self comes out.

How many nut bags on this forum call taxes "tyranny". Anyone we know?

Is the IRS man a "tyrant" who should be "taken care of" by the heroic person

I own guns
But I seldom feel the need to be armed.

Every time a property owner blows the head off a burglar, rapist, murderer who has entered said property an angel gets its wings.

And a gun has been used to stop injustice.

You're welcome.

What happens when you don't pay taxes? They ask you nicely to pay and then wave a finger at you?

No.

You will use the arms of the State to take away my arms though.

As the militia, you are to be well regulated in the use of your arms. Militia must have the ability to bear arms. You are in direct violation of the 2nd amendment.
The shooters are likely to be not just well armed but well armored as well with bullet proof vests and other protective gear. Do you expect me to also be well armored as well every time I walk out the front door?

The civil war was organized and directed by the government, it wasn't an organic upraising of armed American citizens. BTW where were all those freedom loving armed Americans during the Jim Crow era, when black people were having their rights trampled on everyday? Where were freedom loving armed Americans when the police sicked dogs on civil rights protesters in Alabama. Where were the freedom loving armed Americans when Japanese people were forced into camps? Nowhere to be found. I have zero faith that armed Americans will ever stand up for our rights, they never have and never will.

You should be able to wear whatever you want. Property rights are absolute.
