Your leaving our the term... "I say we know where they live and their famines and there WILL BE CONSEQUENCES". You even cited that. If that isnt a threat I don't know what is.I see terms like "wonder" and "suspect"... I don't see calls for violence.
I also see great value in this line of reasoning because it is based not only in historical fact... But in the historical record of own Nations birth.
Colonists lived in peace with the British authorities for generations until one day EVERYTHING changed. Of course the revolution was not touched off by single days events but a culmination of a long train of abuses that reached a flash point at Concord bridge over an attempt to secure Colonial Arms.
I can certainly understand this conversation being uncomfortable for an LEO and I would expect it to illicit a response, but your uneasiness is no reason to sensor the discussion.
The reality is that our ancestors carved liberty out of oppression and did it at gun point. To think it could not or will not happen again is, IMHO, naive. The homes and families of participants on both sides were targeted by opposing forces then, and certainly would be again.
No one wishes to see American on American violence and what shocks me is the "you can't say that" response whenever this possibility is raised.
Personally, I find nothing extreme or upsetting about the true intent of 2A.
...and I believe that if we truly hope to avoid this type of violence, we should have the candor to discuss it.
You cross many lines when you bring my family into it. (Not necessarily YOU). The 2a isn't designed to come to my house and attack my family, or excise me... "consequences" towards my family.
My kid isn't the .gov. neither is my wife. Leave them out of it. Period.
And for the records the words "suspect and wonder" were used IN AGREEMENT AND AFTER the previous post which was a crystal clear blatant threat.
Edit: its not candor or even remotely productive to bring threats of harm against my family into ANY discussion. I can promise you that will bring no "compromise" or furthering of goals.
And again.... the 2a isn't so you have guns to harm my family. Its so you have guns to shoot ME when I'm acting as a government agent. To say my family is fair game under this premise makes you (general you) sound like a d bag.
