    Oh...of course...you know the rights bombastic language...they either don't know history or think slavery is no big issue.

    Do you think the police should be able to do anything they want to apprehend suspects?
    I'm not sure I follow you're question. So you're saying that if I don't believe an armed militia should face down authorities I believe the police should be able to do anything they want?

    I thought you gun passionists were all about concealed carry--except MLK in your subliminal use of race of course.
    In fact, it was the elderly Blacks in Chicago who won the right to CC in Illinois, the last state to ban it .

    And how many of these armed militia burned-out cowards do you think had state and federal warrants out for them?
    Shouldn't they all have had to show their permits, since they are all honest and legal ?

    Had he paid like he was supposed to BY LAW, they wouldn't have been. That's like complaining the county taking your house cause you refuse to pay taxes.

    When you realize how dumb you sound let me know. The STATE isn't committing a crime. Now the people that are selling are in federal eyes. And they are free to.

    You can't assume any did, and you don't need a permit in most states for any long arm.

    I don't need to. The "weight" of the law has no bearing on its acceptability.

    It doesn't matter if Bundy likes or dislike the law. It's the law.
    this is one of the dumbest, and laziest, excuses ever.

    As far as using slavery as a "great example", the ending of Jim Crow is also another example where people used violence and intimidation to fight against federal laws they didn't like. So sometimes in retrospect we can judge the cause it never excuses the actual use or threatened use of force.
