"And they took his guns away” No, he gave them up.

And what if he hadn't given them up and made a stand? Would you have shown up to help? Or would you have sat back and watched it on TV?

Don't take my post personally. I'm just illustrating a point.

It’s not a binary thing, there are more choices than either 1) hand over the guns or 2) be shot by a SWAT team. His attorney could have taken custody of the firearms and arranged for safe storage while the case settles, but for some reason the lawyer thinks it’s OK to let the Police hold them. I’m not sure I’d have gone the route they did. Maybe he couldn’t take custody, even though he’s an officer of the court.

Oh, I agree with you it's a conumdrum.

The authorities are picking around the edges, the relatively low-hanging fruit where a mass protest would probably not occur.

The same thing wouldn't happen in Wyoming, Texas, or Utah.

But I think at some point they will go too far, and a fire may start. It's mighty dry tinder in a lot of places.
