I think quite a few of the force multipliers will be found in the hands of the civilian forces because of armory keys being turned over to them without a fight. Local enforcers will be eliminated one by one as they usually do have to return HOME!I really think they would not want any harm done to loved ones.
Forgive me if this has already been addressed, (I have not read every response) but what we all need to do is make a pact with 2nd amendment supporters in our area.
It would go something like this. “If you are facing arrest or seige by any that would deny your 2nd amendment rights I will show up and help you defend that right.”
Groups of 20 to 30 or even 100’s adhearing to this pact would help any one of us from feeling alone when the “chihuahuas” call.
If the “chihuahuas” never call we simply expand our network of likeminded friends.
“That 230:1 ratio does NOT take into account the shear numbers of force multipliers available to Them. All manor of electronic surveillance. Night vision hardware. Infrared visual surveillance equipment. Body armor and armored vehicles. Grenades of every imaginable variety and yield. Not to mention the best and highest caliber weapons on the planet.”
I just downloaded and read an Army Field Manual on Sabotage. You know, for historical purposes... Written for WWII, I think.
Cut down telegraph lines. Stuff like that, that is out of date today.
As I read it, I thought as you have, about electronic surveillance, IR, drones, etc.
On the other hand, the taliban has methods they use against our troops.
“Compare Hitler and Obama. Hitler rose to power by blaming eveyones problems and a specific group of people, the Jews. Fast forward to Obama, he blames everyones problems on the rich and on conservatives.”
I remember a PBS special about Genocide. The author’s dad had survived German camps, and that motivated him to study the issue. He covered about 5 different countries/situations I think. One common factor was to demonize a specific group, and blame them, and make them a target for everyone - shazam.
“Almost as good as 223:1.”
I’ll call you and raise you one with my 7.62x39...
“The only thing they have more of than us is talking heads in pop culture and the MSM.”
‘Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me!’
Happy New Year to you :)
“If 67 wasn’t too old for our ancestors, it isn’t too old for many of us, either.”
Nor is that plus 10...count me in!
Your outline is precisely why the confrontation of forced physical collection of civilian weapons will be avoided by big-brother. What is the more likely route is to simply set deadlines for compliance and when registered guns are not humbly submitted to the overlords, one has a $10,000 fine simply removed electronically from checking, savings, securities, or wage garnishment. Fines would increase incrementally until all funds were taken. Arrests would be made on a small scale and widely published by the corrupt old media in a light unfavorable to the “right-wing killers.” Do you think government has pondered using lawsuits to put ammo makers and gun makers out of business? I guarantee it.
I have my reservations...Let me clarify, I did no tmean the Vietnamese forces as a whole...
The regular NVA forces were, from what I recall reading and hearing about were fairly reasonable to detect, engage and defeat on a conventional level...They of course were not pushovers either, we were fighting them on their own turf...
The VC, you would probably agree are a different story...Very unconventional, hard to detect, and deal with, other than in a reactionary sense...
But, in the context of this thread, I believe “we” wil not see a foriegn force come in to quell our dissagreement with those that oppose us...But I am sure some here would argue that just because it fits a kind of mindset that I would consider to be a little distracted...And their opinion is important to me and others as well...I foriegn force would cause an “all in” from our side of the equation, and be similar to what the VC did to us over there, as far as the techniques, engagement tempo and other factors...
I meant more of the VC type issue in my previous post...
Again, this is just my opinion...
“A drone does not exist in and of itself, it is the culmination of a very long chain of events, each susceptible to pistols and rifles. Even during use it can be brought down with even a single shot from a 22.”
A good story (true in its essential details, so far as I know) came out of WW2 to illustrate this point. Josif Tito (later Marshall Tito) was the leader of the largest Yugoslavian partisan resistance movement against the Germans. He was once asked, “How will your men, armed with old rifles, defeat the Wehrmacht, armed with new Panzers?” His response was illuminating, from the standpoint of tactical brilliance: “When the Germans get out of their new Panzers to take a piss, my men will shoot them with their old rifles.” Note that Tito’s partisans took some 20 divisions of Wehrmacht and SS troops out of the fight for much of the war...evidence that his tactics worked quite well.
There are many variations on that theme which will work inthe modern era. Even 100-year-old bolt action rifles are quite lethal, and there are LOTS of them available. The same weapon used to commit the first recorded murder (a rock) is still just as lethal. We are a toolmaking species - and all of the tools invented in our long history are available - rocks, sharpened sticks, spears, bows & arrows, crossbows, poisons, black powder rifles, center- and rim-fired weapons by the legion, mines, knives, etc. All can be made, and all will be used if necessary.
I certainly appreciate your point. Should they be used against the 2A citizens, the hope is to see them coming. The eventual size of locust is not optimal, it seems to me, but there can be an antidote for most everything. I just don’t happen to know what it would be in this case. Thx. Some may. Wink, wink.
I just saw this. Thank you for posting.
My Wife survived the Pol-Pot killings in a starvation camp, given 1 tablespoon of Rice A WEEK. Living on the run in a jungle for 4 months. Stepping over dead bodies, and so much more.
Anyway, she has been in the US for 22 years now, a strong & proud US Citizen, a total Conservative and loves the real USA.
We’re sticking to our guns. I got great back-up. :-)
Thanks for the perspective.
I choose the left column, too.
God has truly blessed her to survive Pol Pot. Hopefully we can all survive the Ayers/Obama cabal.
bump for later
