that's good. there should be more leo's houses shot. not to kill them, not yet anyway.

but to let them know that we are still in control and hold them accountable.

we are going down the same path as russia did. look what happened to them after they gave up their firearms.

they were asked to register themselves and their weapons and then they were shot.

the criminals wore police uniforms.

hopefully that will not be us, although it has started.

hopefully I will have the courage to stand up and fight them when the time comes.

I would suggest everyone have some illegal (unregistered) firearms and well hidden with ammo.

they already know about the ones you registered.
