    ALL Gooberment, at all levels, elected or bureaucrat, should have the real fear of being FORCIBLY removed from office by “drumhead” trial /court martial if they go against the Constitution.

      Should I start investing in rope futures?

        Gunpowder and Lead, or maybe copper would be more environmentally correct.

    Shooter 2.5

    A24 has a reputation for clever innovative plots. From what I have realized from the trailers and the reviews, it’s not a war movie. It’s simply a disaster movie and has no bearing on the political scene we have today. They were intelligent enough to draw a center without getting political with a Us VS Them.

    And Us VS Them is exactly what we have to avoid. We have to stop this insane conflict between Americans. It has to be Us VS The Problem.

      I hate to bust your bubble but it’s already to late, it’s gonna happen…. And it won’t be conservatives who kick off the show, but we will finish it.

    As someone who belongs to a couple different gun forums we’ve been joking about someone commenting on the big guy getting wasted in the movie and a leftist calling the secret service…. I can see some poor soul getting a visit over a movie.

    It would probably be a conservative gun owner who supports Trump.

    Even if all the politicians and alphabet soup agencies combined forces, and included the butt-kissing military brass, they would still be massively outnumbered. Most of the enlisted men and junior officers would be on the right side of the fight. “A rifle behind every blade of grass” applies to “domestic enemies” as well as “foreign” ones! Maybe the Japanese were smarter in 1941 than today’s bureaucrats are?

      80,000 SWAT-trained police
      + 2,623 ATF Special Agents
      + 200 FBI HRT Members
      = 82,863 Potentially Available Door Kickers

      … presumably working in teams of 8, attempting to seize 9,000,000 newly-contraband semi-auto rifles.

      Before we finish the math, I’ll state some “for the sake of argument” assumptions:

      That every SWAT-trained officer in the country is pressed into service.
      That there would be no “false positives”–meaning that 100% of the tips leading to raids were accurate. (Unlikely)
      That no local police departments would opt out of serving unconstitutional Federal gun warrants. (Unlikely)
      That all raids would be successful. (Unlikely)
      That each successful raid would net an average of three contraband semi-auto rifles. (Possible)
      That every Door Kicker would get an equal share in the work. (Very unlikely)
      That every Door Kicker would be alive and well through the entire campaign of terror–with no incapacitating injuries or deaths of SWAT officers, no refusals, no resignations, and no early retirements. (Very unlikely)

      A lot of those are not safe assumptions. But for the sake of completing a gedankenexperiment, let’s pen this out on the back of a napkin, as a “best case” for an unconstitutional gun confiscation campaign. Here are the division equations:

      9,000,000 ÷ 82,863 = 108 (x 8 officers per team) = 864 raids, per officer

      Let that sink in: Every officer would have to survive 864 gun-grabbing raids.

        What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!

    If they want their f-16 maybe they ought to check on how many deer hunting licenses were sold.

    “Can I have my F16s now?”
    We don’t have to kill the F16s.
    We just have to kill the pilots and ground crew (maint, mechanics, fuel, ammo reloaders, etc)
    What good is an F16 that you can’t fly?

    • April 16, 2024 at 3:08 pm

      Or various and assorted holes in it.

      And you don’t have to kill them on the base, which I assume would be well-guarded, nor do you need “assault weapons”. Get a long-ranged “hunting rifle” and wait on a hillside far from the base for the fuel truck to pass. Refuse to sell the food you grew except to people you know, and ambush the troops they send to seize it. Or ambush the grocery truck, but leave one man alive to drive it on – but wait, there’s a needle puncture in each package. Did you…?

      Or maybe you’re averse to killing men who think they are serving their country. Have you got a guy on the inside? Have him spill a little something in the underwear drawer – it’s really difficult to sit in the pilot’s seat, or even sit at a desk to do paperwork with huge welts on their rear. (That’s an idea that comes to me naturally, thanks to how I found out I was allergic to Tide detergent. I’m not sure what would affect the other 99% similarly, but I bet one of you does.)

    I knew a USAF security guard who disabled four- – – -count ’em- – – – -nuclear armed B-52’s sitting on an alert pad one night. It seems the crews were a little reluctant to fly bombers that had gotten several handfuls of pebbles tossed into all eight engines. He got a quick trip to the looiney bin and an expedited discharge. Yes, the guy was having an emotional meltdown- – – – -after a domestic issue- – – -found out his foxy young wife was screwing his boss!

      I recall a similar incident where a Brit put a handful of gravel on the lip of an intake on a Nimrod because he’d found a young lady and wanted to stay here just a little bit longer.
      No damage done but the engine crawls and a complete inspection of everything else took awhile and the investigation took longer.

      When we were loading or anywhere around the “nukes I can neither confirm nor deny ever being present on Canadian soil” there was a strict ‘no lone zone’ rule and nobody ever went anywhere near an A/C by themselves, the ‘two man concept’ was enforced by armed MP’s working in pairs amd they delighted in seeing someone put one foot over the line or move away from their partner far enough so they couldn’t be completely seen. That was a guaranteed ‘no load’ and possibly an introduction to the tarmac…face first…until an officer came and got you.
      I ended up chatting with a young Marine once in Bermuda when I had the day off but decided to go to the place we were working out of since I was the Detachment 2 i/c and figured I should check up on things. I wasn’t on the pass list for that day so he called in to get someone to come and vouch for me as a phonecall wouldn’t do it.
      We had a nice chat about the various foolishness our respective brass could come up with to complicate your day, but as soon as he saw the vehicle approaching in the distance I still had to get off my moped and go face down on the tarmac…in my summer dress uniform. I outranked him by a fair bit but didn’t complain because there was no point getting him in trouble. We ended up as drinking buddies for the next couple of weeks 🙂
