So.

They're there to exercise their rights.

Why?


Maybe because they felt like it? since they arent paid to be there apparently it turns out.

Heavily-armed members of a controversial patriot group added an extra dose of unease to protests early Tuesday in Ferguson, Missouri.

The Oath Keepers organization says its members — all former military, police and first responders — pledge to "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

However, St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar described their presence as "both unnecessary and inflammatory."

Imagine the carnage if the other protesters asserted their right to carry too. I swear it seems like some people actually want carnage.

More inflammatory BS. Armed citizens patrolling the streets in Ferguson during a peaceful protest. Yeah...let's bring more assault rifles to Ferguson....what could go wrong?

Ayep. Trump will fix this. Eyeroll.

But hey...they have every right to be there too, right?


"Controversial patriot group?"

This goes to show how many people have no idea what the Oath Keepers are all about. These guys stand by an oath they took, just like members of the military are supposed to. How is that controversial?

Your point is? People take oaths and don't live them, the people shown here, this supposed controversial group, is actually doing what they are supposed to do.

Are these allowed to do this and if this isn't an advert for banning firearms then what is. Why do you Americans want to keep your firearms. Hunting, Defence or control. I am really confused as to the argument for firearms.






Mostly because of the British, they're the reason we have them in the first place. But now, our government's doing the same thing the British did. Personally, I think every household should have a mounted Gatling gun aimed at the front door, specifically for no-knock raids.

Some follow some don't, mate that's my point. Do u know these guys ?? If they end up killing a police officer the # hits the fan. If they shoot a civi there #ed too ! No win situation man. These guys wanna be heros and save there town. This isn't how u do it.. Put the guns away and man up. Cops kill unarmed civis because there cowards and scared !! If u wanna stand up for your town do it unarmed. U get shot while being unarmed standing up for your coloured brothers and sisters it will send a bigger message then a 5hr shoot out with 100's dead. This isn't about us it's about future generations. Stand up for what's right. OR defend the policies that have destroyed your beautiful country. Your choice !

Haha you watch CNN ? propaganda mate. All lies. Just like. Bbc,fox,ect The only half decent news is russia today and Al Jerzeera. How we suppose to discuss events when half you guys watch your main stream media #. Wake up.


Yes i watch CNN and Fox News. I also view RT and Al Jazeera on the internet because it is not on my cable box. They are all MSM and very similar only CNN and Fox have better shows. BBC we dont really get much of, but i think it may be somewhere on my cable, not sure.

The morning shows on CNN until 10am are very good. Doesnt Al Gore own Al Jazeera?

I did say half decent lol. I find rt shows the most, Al Jaz not far behind. All our mainstream media is talking about in Australia is gay marriage and sport. And in the local news papers much the same, maybe alil topic on ISIL or russia being the biggest threats blah blah. But I've recently focused my research on American war history and there use of mainstream media, everything forwards from ww2 is messed up. Seems the world was theirs for the taking for the USA. Military bases all over the world, draining other countries dry and yet seem to be the good guys. Anywho...after a while you get a bit of idea on how the system works.

Its comments and mentalities like this that are going to eventually destroy the 'right' to bear arms in the US. The only thing that would come from using high powered firearms against the police during a raid, would be you dead or spending the rest of your life in prison. Plus, even more aggressive raids by police and more support for total gun bans.

Fact is, there's not one possible scenario where these oath keepers could have discharged those weapons they were carrying around Ferguson and have had anything but a negative effect on gun rights in general. So what was the point in the first place?

Doing it "just because you can" is what will destroy public support. The most powerful weapon to protect your rights, is a video camera.

and to all this ill say mission accomplished.

look how just the thread on the event brought out the worst/best/ugly/ignorant side of a decent sized online community.

imagine the effect on a local or state wide communities after seeing the cleverly edited footage on their favorite news outlet.

whatever their intentions were, you all fell prey to it. even people abroad chimed in on US policies, and the patriotic citizens quickly put their guards up, and the puppet masters are now cracking their finger after another dance beautifully performed.

and the plot thins...

*grabs popcorn*

Some people really like them. Shouldn't that be a good enough reason?

What was Alex Jones reaction to this, it seems he was unavailable to comment?
Surely he bares some responsibility here?

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

There is a time and a place for everything, this was neither the time-nor the place.

I love that all these guys have to do is just stand around doing nothing and all the nanny staters become instantly enraged ("They're rednecks, they have small penises!").

In all seriousness though, we've become such docile, domesticated lap dogs of the fed and the msm that we will literally hurl middle school-level insults at the very people who won this country its freedom and were originally supposed to be the main force defending it (militias) . Sorry, but I don't think people with badges, and a history of power abuse have an exclusive monopoly on protecting their communities. These guys are not rioting, nor are they shooting people or tear gassing anybody. They are literally the only respectable party present in Ferguson right now, and you choose to go after them? Come on.

Who exactly is the nanny in this situation?

I guess it all just depends on your perspective. And perspective and perception are reality.

A young man with a gun is shot after some others fire shots.

Does this mean if there is a repeat that the armed Oath Keepers will be then be shot?

Seems to me that bringing firearms into this is a really bad idea. It's going to cloud the issue even more if more bullets fly. There will be lots of finger pointing over who can and can't and why some are targets and other not.

At some point short sightedness becomes stupidity.

Well, there have been a few citizens who have carried weapons, and at least one (Tyrone Harris) fired at officers and got shot in return.

To my knowledge, the Oathkeepers have not fired a single shot nor caused any carnage like Tyrone Harris caused, where 45-50 round were fired between him and the officers--rounds that, had Harris not started shooting, would have remained quietly loaded in their respective magazines.

Trying to skew perspective, much? Don't be afraid of a group of people just because they are armed--you'd do yourself better to be afraid of the guy pulling his firearm out to shoot at people for (presumably) no reason (pssst...that would be Tyrone Harris, not the Oathkeepers).
