I’m just trying to rack up posts to see the Glorious, Majestic, Breath-Taking Watercooler!

(And what best way to rack up meaningless posts than to join the “yes” chorus for the Admin?)

I can't help but wonder if this is what it was like in the various taverns and pubs in the New England area in the 1770's? The mother country kept pushing and taxing until the colonists had finally had enough.
If it comes to the left attempting to take our firearms, you can bet they will do it with UN help.
No real American LEO or Military person will have the stomach to fire on its own citizens for refusing to comply. UN troops however, won't care. I'm almost 60, but if Paul rides at night and the word gets out, I'll be there.

We should take a breath...

I’m concerned that we’re getting a bit overwrought here. I’m an older guy and remember being an adult who owned and shot my guns legally under every President since Ford. None of the Democrats (Carter, Clinton, Obama) stopped me from buying guns and ammo to shoot or hunt, and nothing was ever confiscated. I’m a Republican and have friends who shoot often, and they’re Dems. We’re all Americans. The mayhem in the Capitol last week was caused by people who were also overwrought and I believe they were led by people who misunderstand our history and what’s happening now. Gun laws are mainly state by state and in Maryland we have a Republican Governor who doesn’t get an A from the NRA, but we’re not becoming New York.

Overwrought is a good description for a lot of the recent reactions to recent events. I'm 60. To me the late 60's and 70's were much more violent and riotous than what's happened in the past year.

I don't condone any of it, but it seems the media fails to frame it in the context of the past.

That may be true, but the indoctrination of grade school kids wasn’t a thing.
Ideas were attacked...not just individuals.

Game has changed.

If that was a free & fair election I would agree with you, but I can't say I believe that .

The capitol symbolizes represenative government, if representative government is gone, the building is not as holy as it once was.
