SWAT agents raid Ala. Bunker
I am not in any way condoning his actions. But I am looking at this in a type of AAR. We gun owners and freedom types like to say that they'll take our guns from our cold, dead hands, and that we'll fight it out and make sure that the ratio of us vs. them is unequal.
But it's not looking like that. We have a Vietnam Veteran getting into a firefight with SWAT officers and the ONLY casualty is the Vet. None of the LEOs took a hit. If the hammer comes down, are we going to lose, and badly?
I have great respect for LEOs, and this guy was a nutjob of the first order. I am definitely rooting for the LEOs on this one. They did great, they got the kid out, and saved the taxpayers a lengthy trial and incarceration of the bad guy. Awesome.
My point is, when the "from my cold, dead hands" time comes, are they going to win and freedom lost? They are getting damn good at this. All the .gov has to do is pick us off one at a time, just like they did in Iraq and just like they are doing in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Help me out here guys, what say you?
