I just hope there aren't a lot of good people murdered in vain for defending their rights. I believe that could only happen with inaction by those who believe the cause, but never run out of alternative solutions that don't really exist. The stronger the Patriot movement the better chance we have at peace. If they perceive a weakness they are more likely to try something big in my opinion.
The states need to start organizing large militias that send a message of what it will cost to impose tyranny on the state. Most superior military forces wouldn't be willing to kill so many other Americans just following orders. There are foreign troops who wouldn't mind though.
You could be 100% totally in the right simply defending yourself buy the time the news media is done smearing you you will be no better then some no good street criminal and the police will exercise extreme prejudice on you same as Dorner, the Branch Dividians and Ruby Ridge. I have never seen so many trigger happy cops as the video of the Dorner shootout. What the hell were they shooting at? did they have a clear view of the target or were they just getting some full auto trigger time??
