That's the worst shooting I've ever seen.

A large number tightly grouped, and only a handful are down. I'd be more inclined to think that of all who were shooting, only one guy was actually aiming into the crowd.

The first rule of a gunfight, is to bring a gun.

And lots of friends with long guns.

Otherwise, you're all potential targets.

But it wasn't a god damn gun fight.

Why would you even say this, and why have people starred your post?

or has your reality broken down, where you have no concept of peaceful protest?

Videos like this prove to me why the right to bear arms is most sacred.

What are these protesters to do without the use of arms?


Peaceful protests are wonderful so long as the government isn't killing the protesters. When the government send the troops in using live ammo, the people must be able to fight back.

I jealously guard my right to arms because of this very situation.

Your post got me thinking....did the troops load their own clips?? Do they even know that there are regular rounds loaded amongst the non-lethal rounds, for fear that they may not be willing to fire on their own?

I agree to the right to bear arms, however in these scenarios, were these people to return fire in an attempt to defend themselves that would allow the government faction to call for all out use of deadly force. That would surely quell the revolution in a hurry as there would be no one left to protest. Therefore these brave people have to take the risk of not bringing weapons. AND by its very definition a Peaceful Protest doesn't involve armed protesters.

In theory.

But it's better than being target practice for morons without morals.

I'd rather die on my feet than live on my knees...

Foreign governments like the US could smuggle arms and SF to help train rebels to
defeat these morons....

Honestly, It's time America actually stood up for the people.

Edit to add:

You should up unarmed first.

If they show up and kill your fellow protesters, I can tell you what my next move would be. My AK or AR would be having government goons for dinner.

NoW we have come to closer agreement! Thank you for clarification of your thoughts! The situation has been elevated from peaceful protest and possibly retaliation is warranted. Unfortunately I don't think the Average peaceful protester has any chance of overcoming an organized military whether it be here or in Libya or in the United States. Also I don't think the average peaceful protester is willing to take up arms but rather die unarmed thus martyring their cause. Id rather die fighting then subserviently on my knees also but that's my opinion. And we know "Opinions are like a
a**holes, and a**holes have opinions too!"

My friend I believe in Peace FIRST. But those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable.
