    Well ... since your link says there are 3 components required for domestic terrorism, it's up to you to give examples of all 3 in the Bundy case ... remember ... it has to be all 3 and the entirety of each one.

    Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:
    ◾Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
    ◾Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
    ◾Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.

    Go for it.

    Should we drop drones on them?

    You don't drop the drones themselves on people, but instead drop bombs from the drones.

    Yeah that's what I meant. Got a little ahead of myself. The poster's post kind of threw me off in its shock factor.

So as far as precedence yes its a good thing. It puts the wolves in government on notice that the sheep dogs are still numerous and still have teeth and are willing to use them. If they don't want to get bit they need to back off. So yes I am fine with the precedence.
    Ok so if pissed off people get together, they should be able to do whatever they want to according to you. Law means nothing to you as law as you agree with the lawbreakers.

    I would bet they moved drones there already.
