    No they aren't. They're given a right to peaceably assemble, not plot murder of cops. These guys are the real tyrants, not the govt that the Founders created. If they were in power, then you'd see what real tyranny is.
    They might be bad people, but they did nothing illegal.


    Nope, plotting a crime is punishable by law. That's why (for example) undercover cops who seek out sex offenders on the internet can have them charged for trying to arrange sex with minors online (even if they don't actually molest a minor).
    No, they were planning to protect therepublic (in their mind).

    What if someone (in their mind) thought you were a danger to the country and decided to take you out?

    Since when is self delusion an excuse for plotting murder?

    14th Amendment stipulates no person shall be deprived of constitutional rights regarding life, liberty, property, or due process by any state in the Union; whether they are citizens or not is irrelevant. Both residents and non-residents are entitled to all rights except those specifically reserved to citizens (aka, the vote). However, regarding foreign terrorist suspects, habeas corpus has been suspended.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I know. Why don't they just call WMDs what they mean for it to be called: A nuke.

    The government should always be afraid of being voted out of office, not of being killed at a friends funeral.

    I suppose you think our police have become tyrannical and oppressive and deserves to be killed while at funerals?

    Because WMDs are not strictly limited to nuclear weapons. They also include chemical and biological weapons designed to kill large numbers of people.
