Second Amendment Supporters Dodged A Bullet In Cincinnati ~ VIDEO

Cincinnati  -(AmmoLand.com)- The incident at a Cincinnati field office of the FBI could have been much worse, but it also is a warning for Second Amendment supporters. We came very close to seeing the type of event that could target not just our Second Amendment rights but our First Amendment rights as well.

Think I’m exaggerating? Take a look at how MSNBC host Joe Scarborough dehumanized those who questioned Monday’s raid on Mar-a-Lago. He labeled them “conspiracy theorists,” “insurrectionists,” “weirdos,” “freaks,” and “fascists.” Given some of his anti-Second Amendment extremism, he figures that loyal Ammoland readers are that, too.

This is something that Second Amendment supporters will have to deal with and address. Yes, there have been massive abuses by federal agencies over the decades. Lon Horiuchi and Lois Lerner, among others, retired and collected pensions when they should have been fired and placed on trial for their actions to be judged by the juries of their peers.



But the past cannot be undone. It can only be remembered and learned from. And one thing the past has taught us is that government abuses often lead to some people deciding to take matters into their own hands. As abusive and norm-shattering as the Mar-a-Lago raid was, it did not justify taking a nail gun and a rifle to try to break into an FBI field office.

Already, anti-Second Amendment extremists are seizing on the incident in Cincinnati. Both Eric Swalwell and Zoe Lofgren have tried to claim criticism of the Mar-a-Lago raid incited the incident. That’s a patently false claim, of course, but it’s dangerous for us.

Why? Because while we’ve made advances, the mainstream media still dominates things. They can put wall-to-wall coverage of any event they want, and we have practically no recourse against such a move due to the same First Amendment that protects us.

We’re not helpless against this sort of manipulation. The best defense is to firmly disassociate from those who are urging violence, to back it up by saying something to the appropriate people and to document the times you did say something. It not only protects us from inaction, but it can also paint people like Swalwell and Lofgren as liars to our fellow Americans, whose support we must win in order to preserve our rights.

Second Amendment supporters seeking to defeat anti-Second Amendment extremists via the ballot box at the federal, state, and local levels have dodged a bullet. They need to be extremely vigilant so that the preservation of our rights doesn’t come in the aftermath of tragedy – or worse. Break the pattern.

Absolutely breathtaking, Harold. You have truly outdone yourself this time. Article after article after article by you telling us what we must do to save our “Second Amendment Rights.” Yet when things look like they just may be going a bit sideways, you caution everyone else that this is not the time to annoy those who would take away our RKBA. Do you really think a strongly worded blog post will give our opponents pause? Do you really think the answer to their attacks lies solely in the ballot box? When are we going to hear what you are prepared… Read more »

Amen Brother. This time it was an idiot that did an idiotic thing. More than likely because he was somehow feeling oppressed. Can you imagine where that feeling came from? I think more than a few million people are feeling oppressed right now. AND tell me something please. Why would an elected official build a damn fence around the White House unless he felt maybe he and his regime didn’t belong there. If he belonged there he wouldn’t be treating this country and it’s President like a damn criminal by sending the FBI in when the man isn’t even home… Read more »

he believes in negotiating rights away

Wild Bill

As my Mexican friend used to say, “Yo quero vomiter!”

Russn8r

Vomitar.

Wild Bill

She spoke with an accent.

Russn8r

No Mexican accent says yo quiero vomiter.

Wild Bill

You have met them all? Well, I tried to be cordial. Now, we are done.

Russn8r

I was a Spanish major before switching to economics. I speak Spanish fluently and lived in Mexico. It was a friendly correction and you doubled down on the error. Your cordiality has always been phony. It’s on you.

Russn8r

Your IQ’s showing again, OpeTEX. Now delete your post and RUN AWAY before they ban you again.

Wild Bill

I get along pretty well, too, I learned from the people because I can get along with people. And books do not teach accents.

Weak. Typical Wild Bill evasion.

USMC0351Grunt

Are you here to aid in providing solutions to the threats of our freedoms and liberty or piss and moan over every little nit-picking issue? Cause if you are, I’m going to petition Ammoland to change your screen name to “Bi-otch”

Wild Bill

He is particularly agitated today.

Ope

Yeah,he just misses jmcdcr or whatever it is. Frick ain’t complete without frack. How you been doing Bill?

Wild Bill

Perhaps Frack has outgrown him.

Rained all day yesterday. We are very happy. Every critter, feral and domestic, hopes that the drought is over!!

If I were him, I would be agitated too. He keeps saying they should run everybody off, but he knows it’s gonna be him and that proves his dumbassedness!

Wild Bill

Freddy will get sick and tired of his causing people to abandon this site. He is bad for business.

Russn8r

Typical Wild Bill projection.

USMC0351Grunt

Uh? I and a whole lot of other people pretty much support the fact that WB has earned his stripes both here and elsewhere.

Wild Bill

Thank you, Marine.

Ope

We all know Roosky lies with impunity. If this would had been about Italian instead of Mexican, then he would have an advanced degree in Italian and lived in Rome. He adjusts all his bullshit to whatever the current discussion is about.

Russn8r

Whatever. He hasn’t earned the right to lie about me, and neither have you. Take a hike.

Wild Bill

Chasing people away, again?

Ope

Bill, WE all know boy lies with impunity and has the nastiest mouth on this site. You read where he claims he lived and studied in Mexico for 45 years, right? I guess that’s where he got his advanced degree too! If this discussion would had been about Italian instead of Spanish he would have an advanced degree in Italian and lived in Rome for 45 years.

Russn8r

You need a brain transplant. I never said I lived in Mexico for 45 years. Good grief.

Wild Bill

“…
but in 45yrs of travel, undergrad Spanish minor, living & college in Mexico, …”

Russn8r

45 years of all those things combined, not one of them, genius. Slap another estrogen patch on your ass, Bill.

Master of the written Spanish language, but can not communicate a thought clearly in English. Hmmm.

Russn8r

Gee, Bill, I thought you were done with me, now.

Wild Bill

You spew all manner of wicked falsity that requires someone to standup to.

Wild Bill

Response awaiting approval.

Wild Bill

“… but in 45yrs of travel, undergrad Spanish minor, living & college in Mexico, …”

Sure sounds like a claim of forty-five years in Mexico. Maybe I am conjugating the verb wrong.

Russn8r

Or maybe you need to slap another estrogen patch on your ass. Why so bitchy, Generalissimo?

Wild Bill

Not “bitchy” that takes emotional energy. I spend no emotional energy communicating with you.

Russn8r

Keep telling yourself that, Generalíssima.

Wild Bill

Specious spew from one that has never served a day in his life.

Russn8r

That’s a day more than you did, Generalíssima.

Wild Bill

I’m not familiar, but I’m sure that you are right.

Russn8r

Funny thing is you girls have to gang up and you still lose.

Wild Bill

No one seems to agree with you.

Russn8r

Like the Global Warming consensus. Don’t you ladies have anything better to do, Generalíssima?

Wild Bill

That is funny.

Russn8r

Being a hypocrite, again? I’m supposed to roll over for your locals only gang attacks? Nice try, Generalissimo.

Ope

Frick,you mean like you and Frack do ? WE all can see how much you miss Frack. Maybe he will show up later after he’s through fishing without a pole,line, and fly.

Russn8r

Boring.

Wild Bill

You told him to Take a hike. Doesn’t that mean that you are telling him to leave. That is just what I have been saying all along.

Russn8r

No, genius. It tells Buttinski to leave me alone.

Wild Bill

I suspect that you are alone most of the time.

Wild Bill

No just be a polite person like everyone else on this site.

Russn8r

More hypocrisy.

Ope

Bill, that’s one of the things that really pisses me off. Most the people from the good old days, many years ago have left the site completely because of these two. Hopefully they might come back when these two are gone.

Russn8r

You’re ANGRY, OpeTEX? So sad!

You & your pals Wild Bill & Oldman have alleged that lie dozens of times, never with the slightest bit of proof.

Crickets Chirping…

Ope

Just a couple years ago the boy had majored in political science and minored in dairy manufacturing.He’s some kind of activist that has interviewed Fidel Castro and Jimmy Carter. This old boy has been and done anything and everything to fit whatever the discussion is here on Ammoland. You can’t make this stuff up.

Russn8r

OpeTEX must be drunk again. I never said any of that.

Oldman

You are an overt LIAR!

Ope

Oldman,you are so right. This boy lies about anything and everything.

Russn8r

This is like arguing with 3 crazed feminists on welfare with nothing else to do. Your bad tuna stench permeates the room and you get off on it.

Oldman

Actually YOU are the one that get’s off on it! I really don’t think I have ever had the opportunity before to try and communicate with a Masochist. Have you tried putting a plastic bag over your head? I hear it can be real cool from people who have known them. Please give it a try!

Ope

Oldman,spot on !

Ope

We all think he should give it a try.

Russn8r

Actually YOU are the one that get’s (sic) off on it!”

LOL. Could you women get any more boring & psycho?

Wild Bill

I could not make this stuff up; and you could not make this stuff up; even Hollywood could not make this stuff up, but …. that one can and does make this stuff up.

Ope

Bill,absolutely. The thing is is that he is really pitiful at doing that and can’t remember his own lies.

USMC0351Grunt

Shame on you WB. You flustered a screen name.

Wild Bill

Seems that way. I’ll do penance, later.

Wild Bill

I note that he does not claim a college.

Russn8r

You could’ve just said thanks for the friendly Spanish correction, but you prefer to be a little cyka and hang with your dishonorable cowardly vile thug sock puppet pal OpeTEX of the 20 fake accounts. So be it. Show me your alleged diplomas, Generalíssimo.

Wild Bill

You could have made it more obvious that it was a friendly correction. At least I have diplomas.

Russn8r

Are you really so thin-skinned I have to preface with “Please don’t think I’m trying to offend you, but the correct word is vomitar.”

You’re way overreacted. Own it.

Let’s see those alleged diplomas.

Let’s see the proof of your lie that I drove people away from this site. Your projection is epic. You’re palled up with foul mouths Oldman and Ope – the latter you know damn well trolls me with sock pup accounts, including TEX. But you play coy, a dishonorable, passive-aggressive, feminine-leftist M.O.

Wild Bill

That would have been good.

No.

You first.

Hopefully, they will come back and testify.

So many good conversations to have and yet be bogged down by that toxic person.

USMC0351Grunt

WB, I KNEW the nausea was familiar? I don’t see MY friend in this fracas? Could it possibly be a text-based schizophrenia?

Russn8r

Not how it works. You’re the one claiming I don’t have a degree, so let’s see yours.

Your legend is legendary, Generalíssimo.

Wild Bill

The evidence that you seek from me would not prove that you have a diploma. I have conveyed much information that only a diploma holder would have, already. I think that it is your turn. Just name a college.

Ope

Bill,he’s going to keep baiting you over this. We both know he has no degrees. You went through similar BS with the other one a few months back.I doubt the loser even graduated HS

Wild Bill

Yes, I am done with him.

Russn8r

Yet you keep trolling me, like a woman scorned.

I was going to correct the spanish but figured not worth it , look who it is , likely does not even listen when someone is talking. And when did you ever hear anyone speaking spanish ,other than school use yo……voy a vomitar

Finnky

Just because someone is referred to as Mexican does not mean that they were actually originally from Mexico or picked up accent from friends or family from other spanish speaking nations. As someone who has studied the language you are surely aware of how drastically various dialects differ. From Spanish to Mexico City, from various S. American countries to Cuba – they can be almost unrecognizable to a “proper” spanish speaker. In any case there are often distinctive dialects from rather small groups. From gangs to “valley girls” or boston, American can sound very different. Heck I generally cannot understand… Read more »

if she was talking to you like that she was making fun of you like you were an idiot…if her family was from mexico city she could have well thought she was better than you…we have arrogant people here too

Russn8r

Bill hasn’t alleged such issue. Thx for politely presenting that theory, but in 45yrs of travel, undergrad Spanish minor, living & college in Mexico, hiring native Spanish speakers etc, I never heard anyone of Spanish-Latin descent in Mexico, Spain, Cuba, CA, TX, AZ, FL, NM, LA or NV pronounce an AR verb as an ER verb. Have an example? The verb is vomitar. I tried to be helpful. Bill corrects folks all the time & could’ve just said thanks. But he tag teamed with his locals-only gang of ex(?)-cop sock puppet pals for 3-on-one, insulting, projecting, lying about running folks… Read more »

Finnky, before you buy the total lies that Roosky is trying to sell than buy the Brooklyn Bridge first. That way you would buy something real that really does exist.

Russn8r

You & your pals snap at ankles like unhinged menopausal poodles. You wrote that the cop who machine gunned Daniel Shaver was not convicted and therefore did nothing wrong.

nrringlee

Our political classes, to include NRA National fail to recognize one clear truth . Insurgencies and civil wars and revolutions rarely start by intentional act. They are a culmination of events leading up to one singular event that triggers every John and Jane in the countryside to arm up and resist oppressive government. As we used to say in the counterinsurgency business once Jack is out of his box you cannot get him back in. Once you have that singular event, whether it be a Lexington or a George Floyd you cannot get that jack back in to the box.… Read more »

Most surely agree with your opinion. Civil wars are the results of a few radical mouths ending up getting a whole lot of innocent bystanders killed. WHEN will we ever get smart enough to “take care of” the mouths who bring these events on and thus save hundreds if not millions of lives of others who just want left alone??? Talking heads like Schiff, Nadler, Schumer, Pelosi, Cortez, with the whole socialist news people et al whose code talk is “saving our democracy”, are actually DESTROYING it more with their every speech and move.

I agree with what you wrote, but the talking heads that you mention are handsomely rewarded for dividing the country. So … our society actually rewards such behavior.

USMC0351Grunt

Actually they should be saying, “SAVE OUR REPUBLIC!”.THAT you can actually save. As far as a “democracy”? Democrat, Democratic, Democracy, etc. is for the most part the most misused, improperly used and grossly misunderstood word(s) ever spoken in a free nation.

Oh, yes. Civil wars should be avoided at all costs! If only the one that started all of this in 1776 (The Colonial Rebellion) had been avoided!

Something new to write about if you choose to Harold Both subjects remain a political talking points which the left and the democrats continue to lie about to pass legislation that panders to their base while doctoring the numbers and the facts. The Republicans continue fail their base by not taking the fight to the elite socialist democratic leaders and changing propaganda into the truth. There’s a political dynamic that virtually guarantees Congress will remain locked in a contentious stalemate over guns and climate change.

You left out the most important part of this FIB shooting. The IDIOT used a NAIL GUN to shoot NAILS ! NOT the rifle. Yet! the Freakin’ Bureau of IDIOTS CHASED and MURDERED the man down the road!

Read somewhere that once out on the road, he fired actual bullets.

In any case, any projectile moving fast enough can be lethal. Got no clue maximum lethal range of a nail gun is, but imagine it’s not terribly far…

It is far enough that when a builder I know was up on a wall and some punk decided he’d rob him, as dirtbag approached he used his left hand to pull back the contact trigger at the business end of his big Senco, loaded with 16’s, and fluttered the trigger with his right hand, releasing a hail of those sixteens coming right at the face if the idiot.
