Finally, and perhaps most-disturbingly, we watched unarmed citizens be gunned down by law enforcement officers in Louisiana after Katrina, following their blatantly unconstitutional seizure of privately-owned firearms. A deaf woodcarver was murdered by a trigger-happy cop out west when he failed to respond immediately to a command (he was deaf - duh) and another man was shot in the back while prone on the ground in California on a train platform. In Canton Ohio we have recently witnessed a law enforcement officer threaten to murder a citizen in cold blood for exercising his lawful right to carry a concealed firearm in his own automobile. At the same time our very own government fomented, aided and abetted the supply of thousands of firearms to criminal drug gangs in Mexico, then tried to cover it up.
Yes, I know the courts have ruled that "ball gropes" are constitutional and at present the officers in Louisiana are facing federal civil rights charges.
Just remember that the "courts" ruled in the 1760s and 1770s that the actions of the Red Coats were legal as well.
In point of fact I would love to have someone explain to me how what is going on today in this country is materially different than what the "Red Coats" of 1775 did when they intended to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock? Note that eight colonists died on April 18th of that year, all from British muskets. Nobody knows with certainty who fired the first round that fateful evening but when you're lying dead on the ground it doesn't make a bit of difference who shot first.
Exactly how many deaf woodcarvers, unarmed civilians on a bridge in Louisiana or motorists who are lawfully carrying weapons for their own protection against the feral jackasses who do actually exist in this nation have to be assaulted or murdered before we reach the same logical point today that we reached on April 18th of 1775?
