Our population does not have world class firepower. Our population has the kind of firepower that would have been organic to a rifle platoon in the
Our population has no answer for 20th century heavy weapons such as the Mk-19 belt fed grenade launcher (40mm grenades raining on you from almost a
mile away, one every second and a half, from just one humvee), the M242 Bushmaster (25mm depleted uranium rounds that will shred a tank at close
range- easily able to make your last few seconds a living hell from almost 2 miles away).. and I don't think I have to explain the Abrams tank,
howitzers, or the Daisy Cutter.
Never mind 21st century firepower- they'll gas you with something that makes you throw down your gun and start having passionate gay sex with your
platoon mates, then robots will creep over the horizon and blind you with lasers and burn you with microwave radiation, then flying robots will launch
missiles at you, then guys in armor that your rifle can't defeat wearing armor that doesn't show up on your thermals will advance on you through a
cloud of smoke firing smart bullets which can actually home in on you and explode right over your head even if you take cover.
And they won't just break out those big guns and come after you either. They will agree with your position when you stand up. They will say, "these
crazies have state of the art weapons and they are making unprovoked attacks on law enforcement like James Dorner on steroids, but nobody worry, under
the new Homeland Security legislation we can use state of the art non-lethal military technology to burn them blind them and make them sodomize
eachother without hitting a single innocent bystander". And those who don't know the score will be so happy they were able to do all of that to you,
because it's better than a bloody scary issue-in-doubt fire fight in the middle of their neighborhood.
