Folks use Kent State as an example. The Guard was not trained for crowd control, and were only provided their M-14's. Things were thrown at them,
they were unprepared, and they reacted in what a few perceived as danger.
There's still a lesson here. Don't attack the military unless you feel they are breaking the law, and that you have superior firepower and
Our military will likely sit it out if things go tits up. They'll likely stay on base, and justifiably protect those assets.
If I were a soldier assigned to guard my post, and I were assaulted by a group of old ladies using walkers, before I'd let my post fall, I'd mow
them down. I would defend myself and my post. Period.
No one attacks the military on their installations, or doing their security general duty, there will be no problem.
The military starts following orders to take weapons or gather civilians, illegally search homes or vehicles, or blockade roads, then they are wrong,
and hopefully, a well-armed militia will stop that.
For every line, a few will always cross that line from both sides, and therein lies the danger.
Soldiers should know that they are not to be used here in the States against the American people. Then there will never be a problem.
But some will.
We should all recall our oath to the Constitution, and for those who never took the oath, they better remember what it is.
And who is this fifth-grader Bobby what's-his-face that knows as much about the military as he knows about quaternions?
Five will get you ten he wears his shorts backwards.
