    As was once said in the far gone days of my youth: F**kin’ A!!!

    But methinks Big Brother is hoping for such a response; Waco and a number of other incidents make me paranoid…

    Or maybe not paranoid enough???

    • Ozymandias

      Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean you can’t have real enemies.

      • syvyn11

        or doesn’t mean they’re really out to get you.

        • The only thing I’m paranoid about is if I’m paranoid enough.

    • Too Tall

      When they are out to get you, paranoia isn’t a disease, it’s just right thinking!

    • Kristophr

      I’m pretty sure we are being trolled again. But I could be wrong, of course.

      • Kristophr

        I suspect this ain’t the “pig” Zed is shooting at.

  • JTC

    Come ’17, is this what it will be like…fedgov thugs setting up, disarming, taking out those like Zed who have made no secret that they will defend to the death? All signs point to “yes”.

    I don’t know how Chris Muir conjures such a disturbing and likely scenario, except to say…he is Zed. And so are we.

    Like I said yesterday, this is just a ‘toon. But it is so real that it hurts.

  • WayneM

    I’m starting to think that DHS dude is actually “Agent Smith” as this seemingly physical manifestation of everything wrong with the govern-matrix keeps showing up again and again, smiling and claiming to have won…

  • Fox2!

      Great book. Have an autographed copy myself. Another good companion to it is
      Patriots-Surviving the coming collapse by James Wesley, Rawles.

  • JohninMd.(Help!?!!)

    Daaaaaamn…….Chris, I love ya. But how DO you get out of the door to your house with balls this big? I’m thinkin’ of the crap John Ross went thru after publishing “Unintended Consequences”….or Tom Clancy, when he killed the whole Gummint.

  • SoCal Stoli

    Hmm…that was awfully nonchalant, even for Zed.

    I’m betting…blanks.

    And a set-up by the Feds.

    • SoCal Stoli

      But…then again – without a BFA, blanks wouldn’t be cycling the weapon.

    • H_B

      He’s shooting the Kalashnikov he just picked up. A gun that will cycle with blanks also shouldn’t have a muzzle flash either.

      • It will if it’s a prop gun like they use in the movies. They open the gas port and add a constrictor in the muzzle. It allows enough gas pressure to cycle the action with blanks, but there’s enough of an opening to let out some flame and smoke at the muzzle. So all theories remain on the table.

        • At least a couple actors have been killed with blanks.
          Rule #2!

      • eon

        My best bud the E-5 says that as part of OPFOR in Team Spirit ’85 in ROK he used AKs with blanks and an adaptor, both standard Red Army issue. And that they generated a hellacious muzzle flash about four feet long and two feet across. Which looks a lot like what CM showed here.

        He also states that the sheer size and intensity of the muzzle flash made everybody on the “blue” side in front of it freeze for several seconds, which isn’t a good thing when you’re being shot at, even in an exercise.

        The blank adaptor for the AK is a tube that screws on the muzzle that’s barely larger than the outside of the barrel, unlike the “big red box” adaptor of the M16.If you try to fire live rounds with the AK’s adaptor in place, things will likely tend to come apart rather abruptly and spectacularly, according to him.

        The adaptor is as heavily over-engineered as the rest of the rifle, and it’s not going to move just because a 125 grain slug hits it going at 2,400 feet per second. Which means all that pressure has to go somewhere, and the only directions available will be to the sides and straight back.

        Oops.

      I’m betting, just like last time these two went head-to-head, that Zed just took out “something wicked,” like those feral pigs everyone has been guessing…

  • Pamela

    Funny how some set-ups don’t quite work out as planned.
    No turning the other cheek. They’ve trespassed.
    This is a Wrath of God moment delivered by a righteous Man.

    • No, sorry, it is neither legal nor moral to murder someone for trespass. The resident may use deadly force if they honestly feel their lives are in danger.

      People have been charged when chasing after a would-be thief or assailant with a gun (the victim’s gun, not the perp). Once the threat is past, use of deadly force is off the table.

      • eon

        As long as the subject is visibly armed, the threat still exists under several states’ statutes. Ohio being one such example.

        Generally, unless they lay down their arms and surrender, they constitute a threat as long as they are on your property without authorization. BTW, in OH, the use of lethal force is permitted to prevent;

        1. Harm to yourself or any other person;

        2. Burglary (the assumption being that a burglar who attempts a B&E when there’s someone in the building is likely to be violent);

        3. Arson of any structure (which is defined as assault with a deadly weapon);

        4. Attempted auto theft (especially of an occupied vehicle, i.e. carjacking);

        5. Any other form of assault on an individual, which includes rape, mugging, and other “strong arm” forms as opposed to “just” armed assault.

        In short, Ohio’s legal doctrine is “stay off other people’s property unless invited, and mind your manners even on the sidewalk”.

        And yes, it has survived numerous court challenges, notably from “progressives”.

        I don’t know Texas’ law, but I doubt that it varies much, as one reason Ohio’s law stands up in court is that it does follow the pattern of other such state laws across the country.

        If the muzzies were a false flAG sacrifice the AK47 will have blanks. If not, real bullets and dead fed.

        They trespassed by sending an assassination squad.

  • Kafiroon

    I am waiting for the “revelation” that this strip precedes.
    Maybe enough 7.62×39 hides .338 holes.

  • B Woodman

    Never leave an unsecured enemy behind you. And considering that the Double D is surrounded by enemy territory and under”manned”, there are no guarantees Mr DHS can be made to stay hors de combat. And since he has also shown that he does not honor his parole, that leaves only one option. And Zed is exercising it.
    But I would have liked to have seen Naomi using some “enhanced interrogation techniques” (torture) to extract as much information as possible about present and future attacks and infiltration. Then “off” Mr DHS blubber brain.
    Unfortunately, this is war. War as practiced by FedGov against its own citizens. And in war, all is fair. There is no prize for second place.

    • Pamela

      Wonder how much singing would be done with some molasses, bare feet or other body parts, and some hungry little hawgs…

  • H_B

    “We sleep soundly in our beds because rough men stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.”

  • B Woodman

    War is as much a mental preparation as it is a physical preparation.
    Are you ready, willing, and able to pull that trigger, to shoot that bullet, to take that human life? Remember, HE is attacking YOU, and is himself prepared to take your life, liberty, and freedoms. All you are doing is defending yourself, with “extreme prejudice”.
    If Mr DHS had stayed home, he would not be in the position that he put HIMSELF into.
    This is close to the same legal gymnastics that can charge the accomplice of a thief with murder, when the thief is killed by the defending homeowner.

  • Delilah T.

    It is neither paranoid nor delusional to pay attention to your surroundings. Keep your eyes and ears open. PLEASE – let’s not have another attack inside the borders of this country. If the Gadsden rattler now says ‘Shoot back!’ on a rainbow background, it isn’t rebellion. It’s common sense.

    Take nothing for granted. Freedom is not free.

    • rocky

      Very well said!!

    • Bill G

      Damn straight. Er, right.
      But the government does not want self-defense to be an option for us.

      • Delilah T.

        Yeah, I’m straight, so ‘damn straight’ is fine with me.

        And the ‘gubmint’ forgets that it is ‘WE THE PEOPLE’. Big mistake. Big HUGE mistake.

        • Delilah T.

          Why would we listen to them?

  • B Woodman

    There is a time for talk, and a time for action. The FedGov’s actions have pushed Zed and the Double D up against the wall. Long past time to push back.

    If it were possible, push back all the way to 1900 government, pre 16th and 17th Amendments, pre Federal Reserve Bank.

  • S'aaruuk

    I’m tending to agree with H_B but with this twist. DHS sends in some “expendables” with weapons loaded with blanks to mount an “attack” on the DD. Zed and Co. return live fire on the “defenseless” expendables, it’s all caught on video and now the stormtroopers have all the “justification” they need to raze the place to the ground and make sure there are no survivors.

    Zed figures it out and “hoses” blubber-butt with his own weapon not putting a mark on him but causing him to fill his shorts.

    Think “Die Hard 2” and the blank loaded MP-5’s

    • eon

      My thought as well, because I can’t see Zed terminating a Federal officer.

      But their sense of invincibility and utter moral authority needs to be removed. It has transformed Federal LEO from guardians of the peace into not-especially-bright schoolyard bullies. With bigger guns than everybody else.

      This situation cannot be maintained. We will have a general “house-cleaning” in this country. It will either be by the law, with a large number of Federal employees no longer being employed (and a substantial number behind bars), or it will be a “cleansing” of the populace by those employees, conducting an Inquisition orchestrated by the “enlightened elite'”, who will finally be able to indulge all their delusions, all their dogmas, and all their hatreds, with somebody else doing the dirty work and themselves watching, quivering orgiastically, and screaming commands at the tops of their lungs, demanding more blood. And more, and more.

      For a historical context, see “Cathar Suppression”. Also “French Revolution”, “Directory”, and “The Terror”.

      Keep in mind that those who lord it over us now may have all the faults of the French monarchy, but they define themselves as Jacobins. And think that The Terror was a “righteous crusade against evil”.

      It is we they define as the “evil”. And they and their minions are not armed solely with repurposed agricultural tools.

      Although I’m sure they have frissons thinking of what Saddam Hussein used to do with wood-chippers. And dream of doing the same to us, live, on Twitter and YouTube.

        I can’t see Zed terminating a Federal officer.

        Yet.

      • JTC

        “…they and their minions are not armed solely with repurposed agricultural tools.”

        Nor are we.

        And while it is true that we must learn from history to avoid repeating it, neither did those named events feature a populace armed on a more than one to one ratio with very lethal tools.

        If your scenario one, a cleansing of fedgov operatives, does not occur, and scenario two, a cleansing by them, should begin, then the third (and most likely in my view) scenario of general insurrection and internal war (I won’t call it civil) will ensue.

        And as you say “they” have bigger guns. But as I said, “we” have many more guns.

        In the end, while I may not live to see it, it is my fondest hope that the “quivering” of the “enlightened elite” will be the death throes of the physical shell of their vanquished evil psychotic selves.

        • JTC

          And while I agree that it is unlikely that a real Zed would under this same scenario kill this JBT, remember that he is an avatar of what real Zed, and the real us, must consider and anticipate. The time, as you in your comment and I in my reply have discussed, may come. And as in all preparation, one’s responses and actions must be to the extent possible, preplanned.

          The danger is that they may believe, based on the echo chamber they live in, that they cannot possibly lose. The media, academia, Hollywood, etc., all agree that they are right and good and no one can stand against them.

          When people believe that, they tend to overreach. See “Victory Disease”.

          It tends to come just before disaster.

          Which is why it is very dangerous to assume that “you” are going to win.

  • I’m reminded of the last part of Unintended Consequences..

    “Well, yes, of course I still wonder where he is,” the President
    corrected himself, “but that’s not what I was thinking of just now. Jews don’t eat pork, at least Orthodox Jews don’t, but do they raise it?”
    “What on earth are you talking about?”
    “It was something Irwin Mann said this morning. I had a lot on my mind and it didn’t register. Now it doesn’t make any sense. I’m sure I heard him correctly, though; his accent’s not that heavy. It was when I
    asked him if he really did have business to attend to in Missouri.”
    “What did he say?”
    “He said yes. He said he had to go feed his hogs.”

    I doubt there will be much left of mr. hero and his ISIS accomplices… plenty of feral hogs around the Double D, and they don’t let good protein go to waste.

      Zed didn’t look angry to me. Just determined to do his duty and protect his family.

      Sorry, Major, but it isn’t a matter of making Zed angry. You do not ever present a threat to a (real) man’s family unless you are looking to change your address to Forrest Lawn.

  • Bill G

    If this is not a dream sequence and fully recorded Mr. DHS is in a world of hurt. His words demonstrate conspiracy to entrap Zed and others and the conspiracy led to death.
    I would not want to face a Texas judge in that situation, and I doubt that Texas would give up the case.

  • Norm

    We’re all assuming that Zed shot the DHS agent. Possibly something/someone else behind the agent.

  • Delilah T.

    Do any of you know how big the wild hogs are in Texas? Not a joke – I have seen hunting photos where the hog is bigger than the guy who bagged the boar. They make Hogzilla look like Roo sitting in Kanga’s pouch. I would not bother doing much more than scare the Fedguy enough to make him wet his drawers and then turn him loose in hog country after a blindfolded trek.

    Let the hogs have him. Yes, wild hogs are omnivorous.

    I wouldn’t put too much faith in Texas Law yet. We’re still drowning under a blue wave coming from Commiefornia and the south. All our big cities are pretty much blue now, thanks to what I’d call “welfare colonies”. There are states with worse gun laws, but there are a lot of states with more 2nd Amendment friendly ones. Outside the city, you might be ok, but just like in any other state, it’s the cities that make the laws for the rest of us.

  • John M.

    I STILL say Zed isn’t taking out “Mr. Smith,” but something feral (or wild) that is threatening all three of them.

  • NotYetInACamp

    This entire stream makes me think about and ponder something I have said to people I know.
    That is, that we are the back up for the police and law officers and peace officers.
    More importantly, we are the front up for them also.
    We keep them secure when they are part of us.
    They must realize that. Our American people army, militia, people, however it is named, are vastly greater in numbers than any military that could be put on the ground here by others, and greater in capabilities than all of the local, state and federal people that could be placed in service. That includes Obama’s homeland army authorized in the Obama care bill and all of the newly armed federal employees. We surround them and have the ability to neutralize them as situations call for it. There is no organization to it. It exists. It exists no matter that Obama and others have brought in millions of warriors to fight it based upon their beliefs that they must fight it and us.
    It will always come down to millions of individuals taking actions that they know are correct. But only when it comes to that. People who believe in peace also know how to get to peace. It is never through submission. tactics may require some minor submission, but only to get back on the field at a later time or some other greater gain. Situations, if they develop, will require many individuals deciding their own actions. Despite Obama and friends deciding to replace the inner strength of a country, which Mao defines as its people, we remain and will prevail. We are in an asymmetric war against us. It has many facets. They are persistent. We are more so. We have not even started. Many still have not woken up. Federal incitements to attempt to gain political and so called moral high ground have been seen for what they are. We see the big picture and act in our picture. Hopefully we will win this war before some of the possible scenarios shown and discussed here become even close to commonplace. They have disrupted the rest of the world. They wish to disrupt us and take us out.

    Just some deep thought and pondering on ideas and issues that may or may not someday exist. Win the war before it starts is the best win, but not the only win.
