I did not say they were carrying them, I said they were likely to have them. Most police forces around where I live have access to automatic weapons. They actually train with them at my club.

While some civilians do legally have automatic firearms itís a bit of a rarity these day. Most police departments I know of do have automatic firearms even if they do not carry them hence the comment.

There are also opportunities to deliver food and goods.

So to these protesters, go get a job.

All of the hospitals in my area have laid off docs and nurses. I think one hospital furloughed 60%, might have been 40%, of the workforce.

The District Attorney of a nearby county has already said he won't prosecute any such "arrests" because what the governor, backed up by some LEOs, is doing is, in many cases, blatantly illegal.

Some folks have banded together and asked the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their case and allow businesses in PA to re-open much sooner than what the governor intends to allow. The U.S. Supreme Court has asked the governor to defend his stay-at-home orders.

Because the 'gray man' idea is to not be noticed.
Citizens protesting for their God Given Rights, want to be noticed. And want those they're protesting to take notice of what exactly the trampling of Rights, brings.

We have the 2A not to hunt, or even for self defense.
We have the 2A so we're able to kill tyrants and their apparatchiks, just like our Founders did.
I think there are some petty tyrants who need to understand that.

What would you rather they bring? Bouquets of flowers? There are any number of politicians who view any peaceful demonstration as "intimidation" or as a "threat" regardless of whether the protestors have guns or vibrators. If it bothers you that much, stay under your bed.

Look at how Governor Blackface reacted to the peaceful protests.

If the protestors weren't white supremacists or neonazis, then Antifa had no reason to show up. Despite rumors to the contrary, their charter isn't broadly anti-Right.

Moreover, if no mention of the planned protest appeared on the websites, calendars or chat forums of white supremacist or neonazi groups watched by local Antifa, there's no reason to believe the protest was even on Antifa's radar.

When they've shown up at conservative rallies, it's because they had reason to believe groups they opposed had plans to also show up at those rallies.

Convincing ordinary law-abiding conservatives that "Antifa is after YOU" was a major propaganda coup for the fascists.

It certainly doesn't help that a lot of Antifa are individually antagonistic towards the Right, as well. It blurs the line between Antifa's charter and members' personal feelings, and gives the partisan media plenty of ammunition with which to depict Antifa as the militant wing of liberalism.

Anyway, there's no reason to derail the thread with this, just wanted to point out that Antifa's absence shouldn't be surprising, since they had no reason to be there.

Certainly true, but a hero with a gun simply shows he knows the wisdom of Brains over Brawn.. Guy with a 'milk crate'? Mmmyeah, not so much.. The gun is simply the 'smarter Tool' in just about Any case...

The idea is not to stop the virus. The idea is to prevent the medical system from being overwhelmed. The medical system is generally not overwhelmed. Everyone gets this one and the best outcome is you find out you had it but didn't know it. Most people will survive this without hospitalization. It's highly contagious so if you are in a high risk group protect yourself. The numbers, where ever they come from, are not trustworthy. There is a financial benefit to labeling any death COVID-19.

I don't wear a mask unless the business I must use requires it. If I get it I get it and I'd like to get the anti-bodies and be done with it. Granted there is a risk, but I also drive a car.

A virus doesn't give a **** about rights. How about you?

Jojo, I respect your aversion to firearms, though I do not share it. When tyrants are attempting to abuse their power and browbeat the citizenry into abiding by unnecessary and unconstitutional limitations on their God given freedoms, it becomes necessary to remind the tyrants where the power rests in our nation. We the citizens of the U.S.A. are the ultimate arbiters of what we will stand for, not our elected civil servants.

The demonstration of armed resistance is not a threat in a nation governed by our U.S. Constitution, rather it is a reminder that we the people will not be intimidated, we will not have our God given right to self-protection and self-determination undermined by tyrants. Armed resistance is a time honored right in America, just as it was during our separation from the British Empire in the late 1700s and it continues today.

Jojo, you have a right to your views and to voice those views and your rights are and have always been protected by those willing to take up arms in defense of our liberties. You may or may not like that fact but it is reality. Tyrants don't respect weaklings, tyrants only respect strength and therefore, it is necessary to make a show of strength when confronted by wouldbe tyrants.

Thanks for the correction, I missed that part. But, it could have been Lancaster, PA, based on our governor's current actions and the backlash against him that I see unfolding.

Sure it is. That is EXACTLY the point.
If we brought Nerf guns and supersoakers the politicians would laugh at us.
Every protest is a threat at some level or other, the intimidation of politicians by gun owning patriots should make them **** their collective drawers. Call it a Hazard native to the form of occupation laughingly called Politics.
This is exactly the reason the second amendment was written and the language was specific.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

The point IS to show that many many of WE THE PEOPLE still have our teeth, and are prepared to bite.
MANY of us are sick and tired of paying our taxes to a government that thinks is should have the power to regulate rights above their mandated powers.
This includes the state governments that believe that some remedial dentistry to remove our teeth is in order.

They work for US not the other way around, The politicians forget whom they are answerable to.
Plenty of WE the PEOPLE are right up to the point where "that tree" is going to get a healthy dose of fertilizer

Maybe in NYC. The hospital my PA son works at in Minnesota laid off lots of medical personnel and cut his hours several weeks ago. My SIL was laid off a week ago from the hospital she works at in a small city in Ohio. Such is the case across MOST of the country.
