    I'm sure they have. I think we will see historic numbers regarding militias just like when Obama was in office except more.

    My fear with militias is that they won't be effective enough to stop things, but they will present themselves as dangerous enough to get even many Republicans to vote on really harsh gun control measures, red flag laws, etc...

    This is one of these things where it could wake folks up... or, completely backfire on our side and do far more damage to us...

    Like the Trump protest in DC. They were within their rights to protest, but they handed the enemy a gold mine of material and ammo to use against us. I mean, a ton of reps were standing up in session to dispute the election results, and the antics of some of the protesters, got them to shut up and just hand it all over to Biden.

    Sometimes being passionate, or even right, isn't enough. You have to be smart, and strategic else you hurt your own cause, which is what happened here.

    I don't care about being rightious... I want to WIN, and that takes strategy...

    Agreed. I'm not a big fan of the M word in general. I am a big fan of mutual assistance groups designed and organized towards defense of families and friends. That being said that American Contingency group seems pretty squared away. You apply and they actually do a background check to make sure you arent a wacko, felon and can actually contribute as a member.

    Perfect example of what I am talking about... Trump permanently banned from Twitter, as well as many of his advisors... Articles of impeachment being drawn up. New gun control bills already drafted. Google and Apple have banned the Parlor app, furthering stifling free speech... This is going to get a lot worse, because these yahoos had to go and smash their way into the capital building...
