Not sure what their definition of "assault style" rifles are. As far as the comment, "armed resistance is a viable method of political change", while I don't think it should be the first way to affect political change, it obviously could unfortunitely be the last resort in the future. After all, the founding fathers didn't secede from Great Britain with just kind words. Castro's group didn't kick out Batista with civil protests. And there are a lot of people in places like Venezuela and Hong Kong who wish they had a 2nd Amendment right now.

A far left anti gun "progressive" told me once that she was afraid Trump would declare Martial law when (her words not mine) he loses the 2020 election. :roll: I said to her, "And yet you support gun control laws that would make it easier for him to get away with it?" :rolleyes:

I can't recall the show, but decades ago a guy who was supposed to be the "presidente for life" of some 3rd world country where there is no 2nd Amendment. He was telling someone about the "golden rule." His version was "He who controls the guns has the gold and makes the rules."

As far as a teenager possessing a "backpack" :shock: the article doesn't mention if it's clear or not. :roll:

IMHO, it's less of what he owns and more of what his intent was with them. I've got a neighbor that has ten times that amount of guns, ammo, camo clothes, but he doesn't get on the internet and threaten anyone with anything, not even jokingly. I'm curious though, how does an 18 yr old afford all that?

Federal agents find 10,000 rounds of ammo, 15 assault rifles in home of Ohio teen

An Ohio teenager accused of suggesting "armed resistance is a viable method of political change" was arrested after investigators found more than 10,000 rounds of ammunition and 15 assault-style rifles at his home, according to an affidavit filed Monday.

Justin Olsen, 18, of Boardman, was arraigned Monday in the Northern District of Ohio on a federal charge of threatening to threaten a federal law-enforcement officer, The Vindicator newspaper of Youngstown reported.

The investigation began in February after federal agents found online comments from a user who discussed supporting mass shootings, WJW reported.

On the popular internet meme site iFunny.com, agents said Olsen, under the user name "ArmyOfChrist" discussed the mass shooting and the assault and/or targeting of Planned Parenthood, according to the affidavit.

Court documents also said that on June 2, Olsen spoke with another user about the 1993 Branch Davidian standoff in Waco, Texas. According to the affidavit, Olsen, as "ArmyOfChrist," wrote, "In conclusion, shoot every federal agent on sight."

Another post attribute to Olsen said "don't comply with gun laws, stock up on stuff they could ban," according to the affidavit. "In fact, go out of your way to break these laws, they're (expletive) stupid."

In July, FBI agents in Anchorage, Alaska, traced Olsen's email address to Boardman, The Vindicator reported. Officers with the Mahoning Valley Violent Crimes Task Force arrested Olsen on Wednesday, the newspaper reported.
According to authorities, Olsen admitted making the posts but said they were “only a joke," according to The Vindicator. FBI agents and Mahoning County investigators found the ammunition and assault-style rifles, along with shotguns, camouflaged clothing and backpacks inside a gun vault in a bedroom at Olsen's home, the newspaper reported.

If threatening to threaten is a crime...what about threatening to threatening to threaten?

I'd also like to remind all that reply to this thread about rule #17. Don't go there.

Yet when they met, I bet they vet the threat to see if it is a credible threat threat or if the guy's all wet.

What I'm wondering is how an 18 yr old can afford 10000 rounds of ammo and 15 rifles, and not living at home? When I was 18 I was so broke I could barely afford the gas to put in the car to drive or ride a mc to work to get money to put gas in the car. That and how did his parents convince him to actually move out at 18, when I hear people nowadays complain they got a son living in their basement at forty. :rolleyes:

There's a possibility that's not being reported however. If he's living with his parents, the guns and ammo might not even be his, despite the fact the reporting is saying "his house".

Who knows. A 16 year old made 3 million out of a 30 million prize pool playing Fortnight on the internet, so apparently that's a thing now. Or you can make money posting videos on Youtube.

I bet every damn one of us have stated the same quip attributed to an 18 yo. In fact, it was the basis of 2A.

Depends on which quip you're referring to I guess. I have never said anything remotely even close to his alleged comment of "In conclusion, shoot every federal agent on sight" , not even as a joke.

Had I known Youtube was going to be profitable for people who post video's I would've videoed my wifes cat night and day when it was alive. I could've retired earlier maybe, and not have to sell off my gun collection to buy a house out in the country. That thing was crazy sometimes, was confused about her species.

The founders started fighting because the Red Coats were coming to take their firearms. That was the straw that broke the camels back. Think about it.
Sure, there is a long list of usurpations, as defined in the Declaration of Independence, but seizing their firearm's... those were fighting words.

Referring to that, I agree with you. The word viable only infers capable of or possible, not preferred. Even if someone is anti gun or anti 2nd Amendment, it's pretty obvious from human history that armed people have affected political change, and not just in the US. In fact, I think I alluded to that also in the OP. Not being a moderator, I'm not sure how close to stating an obvious fact will come to violating a particular forum rule.
