    • March 28, 2016 at 9:59 am

      Interesting! You know, the “modern assault weapon” at the time of the Revolutionary War was a rifled muzzleloader with a bayonet! The bayonets were perhaps feared more than the rifles themselves, and the sight of affixed bayonets meant REAL trouble was coming!

      And the brits called it “fix swords!” and not “fix bayonets!” (I recall reading somewhere).

      • March 28, 2016 at 11:09 am

        BRITS were experts with bayonets. Americans weren’t and had few bayonets. Most rifled guns didn’t have bayonets made for them.

      • March 28, 2016 at 2:49 pm

        Wow, buzzkill.
        Most weapons of that time were smooth bore, yes.
        Most rifled bore long guns then were reserved for the better shots, the better trained, the “chosen men,” as the weapons were scarce and expensive, and were for sniping, harrasing enemies, and scout work and so may not have been “fitted” for bayonets, yes.
        “Brits” were standing professional army, “regulars,” yes.
        Most revolutionaries were not professional soldiers, and their only training was whatever they could get before or after hostilities broke out, though many revolutionary officers were ex-Brit and ex-Euro soldiers and could do drills and training, if time and materials and conditions allowed, yes.
        But the “modern assault weapon” then (compared silently to now), and the image of a line of patriots armed with bayonets driving back some anti-constiutionalist protestors, were my focus for my comment. Anti-gunners keep trying to limit us today to what was around at the time of the revolutionary war, which in their minds is the muzzle-loading non-rifled non-bayonetted long gun. “Scary” items such as pistol grips and bayonets are no-no’s to the anti-gunners, regardless of the gun’s function. When the British army regulars went to seize the American’s purposely-stockpiled weapons in April 1775 at Concord, it was the guns (whatever they had, smooth or rifled), gunpowder, balls, and blades they sought to capture. But the “assault weapon” of the day, the biggest, baddest, most accurate, most deadly weapon would be the rifled long gun with a bayonet, and the Brits definitely wanted those out of the hands of the Americans, regardless of whether that would be a common weapon then or not. And today……you know the answers.

      • March 28, 2016 at 4:20 pm

        Something that’s overlooked in the “the 2nd amendment only applies to black powder muzzle loaders” crowd is that many of the cannon used in the revolutionary army came from private owners. It was legal, expected, and even swanky to own the previous-day equivalent of a 155mm field piece.

      • March 28, 2016 at 8:45 pm

        The rifles were mostly in the hands of the colonials. Most carried tomahawks as edged weapons.

    Of course that leaves you open to civil law suits, even if you are in the right. Best to just shoot ’em all, make sure yours is the only report told on paper.

    Dump Trump? After the Donald’s his latest escapade with the Pecker and yet another lie about the Cruz family – that would be an excellent adventure.

    • March 28, 2016 at 4:18 am

      The pressure to release the Cruz scandal (aka “#TheThing” on Twitter) came from the Rubio campaign, not Trump. Stone, the guy Cruz fingered for “involvement” with pushing the story was actually acrimoniously fired by Trump last August. (I guess Trump’s just that much of a schemer that he fired the guy eight months ahead of when he presciently planned to snap a scandal closed around Cruz??)

      Meanwhile, the ad mocking Melania Trump was published by a Cruz Super PAC, not the campaign – yet it turns out that the GQ photo that was purchased for the ad was bought by Jeff Roe, senior advisor of the Cruz campaign, with campaign money. This has been confirmed by GQ themselves.

      And if it’s a lie, there’s a real simple way to counter it: sue National Enquirer for a Gawker-like 140 million dollars. That would at the least get them a retraction from Enquirer; instead it’s been four days and you get lawyer-speak and alluded curse words from Ted; while Amanda Carpenter is directing questions about the story to “her lawyer”. That’s a strange tack to take for someone who defended National Enquirer’s investigation of John Edwards in 2008.

      Regardless, if they follow form, now that the story is out and Cruz has had a chance to deny the story, Enquirer will doll out their story support over the next couple of weeks to get as much sales boost from it as possible.

      • March 28, 2016 at 5:53 am

        Not a Cruz Pac it’s an anti Trump Pac. It would be illegal for there to be communication between a campaign and a superpac.

      • March 28, 2016 at 5:57 am

        You mean, like The One’s campaign and in ’12?

    Folks, due to lots of driving, away from towns, and cities, I like a Grille Guard which includes a winch mount. Below, the Warn with bush guard is close to what I used, except it does not have enough explanded metal protecting the truck’s grille! It also lacks the expanded metal that runds from the bottom of the grille guard, down to protect the bottom of the radiator from stumps and from stones.

    Those invaders could be invaders of our nation, or the children of invaders.
    Invaders and their children never gain citizenship.
    This is one reason why.
    They act like Muslim invaders in the EU (and everywhere they invade).

    They could be brainwashed true believing progressive Maoist PC crowds come to punish the non PC.

    I would not give any legal opinions, but I would point out that before using extreme force, make sure that you are in the right. The invading army, which this is, at Lexington and Concord was in the wrong. That one produced The Shot Heard Round The World. This invasion is also in the wrong. let them draw first blood, or first threat of loss of life. Then follow the law if you must defend your life.
    It is appropriate, but maybe not legally required depending upon the jurisdiction, to give them some ground to advance immorally. Check your juurisdiction’s defense requirements. England now arrests those who defend themselves from invaders. It also is true that I would be in fear of my life from such a mob. Eventually, in Florida, the need to stand one’s ground could come into play, especially in one’s own home or business.
    These may be snowflakes, teacups, anarchists come to kill, triggered twinkies, Maoists, BLM’s, La Raza (All for the Race, none for anyone else. La Reconquista (Reconquer America from the Europeans), Communists, Muslims, psycho progressively educated people, LA MECHA, possible anyone of danger to civilized people. They may be there to kill, as so many of them say when interviewed.
    It could be a RNC plot as noted.
    It could be a Cruz plot, as suggested.
    It could be a DNC plot to end the real threat to DNC/RNC totalitarian rule in place now.
    Soros may be funding it under many situations.

    They want a shooting war, I believe, so that a civil crisis could be declared. Then totalitarian control could be imposed to crush all opposition.

    They really should be careful what they wish for, and what they send out send out minions to start.

    I met a wilding mob once while they were trashing roperty. I happenned to be standing near a Jewish 1little old man’s trcuk outside his barely surviving shoe repair store when one started damaging his truck and slashed a tire. I confronted him. Then decked him when he told me to Fkk off and continued and he stepped directly toward me in a threatening manner looking at me with his knife still raised in his hand to continue his damaging of the small businessman’s property or of me. Losing that truck may have put the man out of business. When about eight others came to do whatever, I let them know that I would accommodate them all if they so desired to continue the matter. They wisely picked up their unconscious comrade and left the area.
    I still feel good about that.
    Be in the right when you take action.
    We have the moral high ground.
    We must retain the moral high ground.

    Amazing how all of these children who screamed when their food given to them by mommy or their nanny’s touched on the plate have grown up to be triggered about similar unreasonable mental weaknesses. That is the mental level of these brainwashed masses.

    It is not yet all out war. Much as we might fantasize, and enjoy the fantasy, they are not ducks in a row at the gallery to be dispatched, yet.

    At least during daylight hours it’s kinda hard to justify use of deadly force to protect property. Criminal trespass requires either certain markings – signage or markings on trees – or verbal warning by the property owner or their representative. Even then it generally requires refusal to obey a Peace Officer’s order to depart to be arrestable. After sundown deadly force is justified for anything from malicious mischief on up. Of course that presupposes they are on DD property. Otherwise the owner of the adjacent property would have to be involved absent an agreement with DD owners to watch it.

    Obstructing a public road or passageway is an arrestable misdemeanor but only by a Peace Officer (very few misdemeanors justify arrest by a private citizen). If the road is private, things get a little bit hazy.

    Considering the likely makeup of the crowd, I figure the drone blasting out “Barry Manilow’s Greatest Hits” would run ’em off rickey-tick.

    Her motives are suspect, but I think there’s an element of truth to this;

    I’ve said for months that DT doesn’t really want to be prez, he just wants to win, but that with the strong backup and unbeatable ticket that a Cruz veep would have been, Trump for one term to shake some things up and beat some things down, followed by two terms of Ted to get the ship of state off the shoals and back on track would be the ultimate dream scenario. But of course that ticket can’t happen now, and I can’t think of a single soul that I would want to take the reins in ’10 that could work with the Donald and take advantage of the stage he would set…

    I don’t think Cruz has a chance at being the big dog this cycle, and based on his continued mouth-running, selling out to the establishment, and very likely skeletons in the closet (reminds me more and more of those holier than thou teevee preachers), I really have no confidence at all of a successful R general campaign, and am back to being resigned to the choice that was made for us long ago by the socialistprogressiveelites on both sides of the aisle.

    The above scenario has nagged at me right along, but typing it here in black and white makes me realize how likely it is, has me enormously depressed and despondent right now, and feeling more than ever that my boomer generation has single-handedly stolen hope for a prosperous, happy, and free future for my children and grandchildren.

    We’ll see what Chris has in store for us about Trump’s visit in tomorrow’s ‘toon, and I’m sure I’ll be revisiting this depressive mood then.
