Could be that the government keeps quashing attempts to organize militia groups.


Like Clive Bundy on Oregon. Like David Koresh in Waco. The media makes these folks out to be nut jobs, just like they've done to Mr Trump.



Maybe we should all read George Orwell's "1984" with an eye to today's main stream media propaganda.

Oh here we go . . . Actually the militia was supposed to be working with the government to protect our borders. We don't need some wild west yahoos out there doing whatever the hell they please. Give me a break.

BTW, the guys ARE or were nut jobs.

And don't tell me that you need a sniper rifle for hunting. You can get all the food you need to sustain life these days at your local grocer or restaurant.
Do you realize how many hundreds of people would die yearly from car-deer wrecks and how many deer would starve without hunting? And that doesn't even count all the other animals that are hunted. Besides, knowing absolutely nothing about rural people, you don't realize that hundreds of people count on wild game to eat. You are just totally wrong about so many things.

Professional snipers rather rated them as amateurs......and that's putting it nicely for what they said.

They weren't using a sniper round.

They were shooting at far less than sniper distances.

They were shooting people only standing still or moving in a line toward or away from them.

If you can find it, here's the article from October 15, 2002:

"Killer sullies image of all snipers, professional sharpshooters say"

I see a bunch of yahoos wanting to have the right to bear whatever and how many arms they want, but somehow the words "well regulated" seem to missing from all the rhetoric. How can people who can get as much ammunition as they want or who can escape through the gun show loophole consider themselves regulated?
You believe what you want, the rest of America will do the same. Militia is the public. Regulated means well running. Like a checklist of being prepared.

Because you were there right? We were out working with BP and radioing/texting in EVERY illegal we saw and gave lat/lon and predicted path to BP Supervisors who coordinated field to intercept.


You keep talking about a lot of stuff you know nothing about but do anyway. Who's winning the Super Bowl this year? I need another hundred horse out of my F350, which tune should I buy? Diesel, if that makes a difference.

I had a win mag in AR and sold it and that was the biggest mistake I've made lately. I switched to bolt and the recoil, even with a brake, is a LOT.
