    Michigan gun owners threaten governor?

    You never flash your gun to intimidate someone. You never point it at something/someone you don't intend to shoot. No warning shots. These are things no responsible gun owner does. You would be branded with the stereotype that hoplophobes attribute to us all.

    Did they think their "private" Facebook group wouldn't be hacked? Holy mother of Al Gore, if it's on the Internet it's potentially available to anyone who looks for it. Without a doubt every gun forum in existence is being combed for these types of things. If you think otherwise you're only fooling yourself.

    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    People think that I'm joking about being added to one more watch list.

    Like you, I figure there's a bot, program or something out there in Lurker Land watching and taking notes on every forum I'm a member of.

    Not sure what the Mi voters were expecting out of someone named "Gretchen".

    But, those protesters would better serve the gun community better by not having a rifle hanging from their shoulder. Open carrying handguns would be a much better way to make your statement.

    We had a member/Super Mod from Michigan at one time - you might run across some of his posts (91Whiskey). Just before he left they had opened up the capitol building and he posted a pic showing him and a friend OCing in the capitol. He left because he was entering politics in a delegate position.

    "To own firearms is to affirm that freedom is not a gift from government...As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of trust."

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    She could be our president right after Trump and Biden ;-(

    Gun rights is a lot like gay rights, you don't want the nit wits representing you. You want to be 'mainstream'. The left made homosexuality mainstream and is doing its best to make gunowners radical nuts. Please don't help.

    Wear a dress shirt with the sleeves rolled up to the protest and don't show a gun at all. It is common law that we have the right to protect ourselves.

    ...When my eldest son asked me what he should have done, had he been present when I was almost fatally assaulted in 1908, whether he should have run away and seen me killed or whether he should have used his physical force which he could and wanted to use, and defended me, I told him that it was his duty to defend me even by using violence.

    I had cousin-in-law named Gretchen. She was pretty hot, actually. (Just thought I'd share.)

    It really doesn't matter. If all were perfectly behaved, they'd just lie anyway. We often worry about perception, while the "other side" does totally insane stuff, like the PA health director, a transgender, corrects a reporter for misgendering.

    DARPA- carnivore , This guy who ran this program is now using it for Joe's pres. campaign. Any "key" word used on any media is grab and held for review. As seen by the actions of top officials in liberal controlled gov. , everything in their control will be used as a weapon against you for their agenda. Legal or illegal they will come at you like Stalin. So yea, arm yourself and be smart not to be a target on their radar.

    People saying things like that on the internet are showing very poor judgment. I also don't believe the problems in Michigan are anywhere near justifying violent action. I have a pretty high bar for that.

    I wonder if they watch Antifa this closely.
