The militarization of US police forces is ongoing and escalating. Many cities and towns now own tanks, armed personnel carriers, even attack helicopters, and almost all are outfitted with military weapons not available to the general public.
And, it is not just your hometown cops who are getting new boy-toys. The military itself is buying up weaponry not just for use in the current or next scheduled war, but to deal with the likes of you...
Also ignored (as if it didnt even exist) is the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 which generally bars the military from law enforcement activities within the United States.
According to Public Intelligence:
for the last two years, the Presidents Budget Submissions for the Department of Defense have included purchases of a significant amount of combat equipment, including armored vehicles, helicopters and even artillery, under an obscure section of the FY2008 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for the purposes of homeland defense missions, domestic emergency responses, and providing military support to civil authorities.
and the US government knows that civil uprisings are coming to a town near you just as soon as the fantasy of a healing economy is shattered, the US dollar fails, and unemployment goes to 30%+ in real numbers.
And, to you tough-talking Neo-Cons with your AR-15 rifles and a few thousand rounds of ammo, here is the reality: they will take your guns, and no, all your Second Amendment bluster aside, you are not going to do anything about it. You are not going to take on a platoon of Marines with state-of-the-art automatic weapons...

Anyone who waits for their weapons to be confiscated, has waited too long to successfully use them.
All the talk on FR about “lost them in a boating accident” rather misses the point of why you have them to begin with.
I’m old enough to not care about dying. So if they come to my house trying to take my gold, you will have to take my lead first.
Daddy...where did you learn how to make claymores?
“If it’s time to bury them, it’s time to dig them up.”
Then why are we still fighting in Afghanistan. Seems to me we should have walked over those guys.
This would be a spectacular event. Hell people shoot at LEO and other officials for a lot less.
“Many cities and towns now own tanks, armed personnel carriers, even attack helicopters, and almost all are outfitted with military weapons not available to the general public.”
Like I’ve heard said more than once: “You gotta get out of the tank to take a crap sometime.”
They probably wouldn’t have the same restrictive rules of engagement.
Why, no... I won't.
I’m already on all the lists, old, sick, no offspring, local shrinks know me, country of my youth disappeared years ago, why would I?
The closer they are to us the closer they are to being ours!
There ain't no such thing, and yes, if the dem statists demanded their guns, the neo-con statists would surrender without a fight no doubt.
I realised that this guy was a know nothing Left wing moron when he made the stupid comment about Neo-cons.I didn’t realise that you had to be a Neo-Con to believe in the Constitution.
I sure would hate to have this clown representing me in court.He should surrender his license to practice law.
I'm probably not as old as you. But when you look at how the left has turned this country and the rest of the world into a cesspool, I can think of worse things than going down in a hail of gunfire resisting totalitarianism.
Another story from someone who knows nothing about firearms.
If you buy an 80% receiver (usually an AR style) or a flat to bend yourself (usually an AK), there is no record of anything. The law specifically allows for building your own guns. The ATF does not consider an unfinished (lower) receiver (the only part recorded) a firearm.
The author is correct in that a conventional battle with police or armed forces is a loser for civilians, especially on the civilians’ front doorsteps.
What the author fails to point out is that there are more effective alternatives to standoffs and conventional battles.
No, I will not-most of my family served in the military, so I was brought up to not be afraid to fight and die, if necessary...
