Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with “anti-government” opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.
The make-believe scenario is timely. Two school employees who are disgruntled over the government's interpretation of the Second Amendment, plot to use chemical, biological and radiological agents against members of the local community.
The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre) occurred at Kent State University in the U.S. city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of unarmed college students by the Ohio National Guard on Monday, May 4, 1970. The guardsmen fired 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.
Exactly why is it a leap again?
As people get more desperate or as the Govt interferes more people will do horrible things.
I see nothing wrong at all with training for 1 possible scenario out of a billion.
Has any gun owner in the last 100 years EVER used WMD's ?
Do you really think an elected official could pull something off with a uniformed force, or would cooler heads prevail?
Contrary to popular dogma people today are no different than 100 years ago, and the world is the same as it ever was.
The fact I can look up how to build any one of a hundred different types of bombs on one of my phones in about 5 seconds says you are wrong about the world being the same.
So what ?
Anyone dumb enough to look up that kind of information, and try to do it is more likely to end themselves, and earn a darwin award.
You said that the world was the same as it was 100 years ago and I used that as an example showing it is not.
Interesting and what do you base that argument on?
