So what. This used to be standard practice in the US. Posse comitatus.

If some lefties want to refuse to answer the call, let them. If they want to show up and cause trouble, they’ll be outnumbered.

No it didn’t. He’s talking blanket deputation of everybody with guns, including strangers, and as I pointed out possibly rioters. Old days of posses you picked your people, and you went with folks you knew could be trusted. Not “hey everybody with a gun, including you bad guys that are why we’re arming in the first place, let’s go”. That’s just dumb. Sounds cool, but where the rubber meets the road there are tire spikes.
