People Are Waking Up

University of Chicago poll:
"It found that a majority of Americans of various political parties believe the government is “corrupt and rigged against everyday people like me,” including 73 percent of voters who describe themselves as a “strong Republican.”

"It also found (and this has been reported widely) that 28 percent of voters, including 37 percent who have guns in their homes, agree that “it may be necessary at some point soon for citizens to take up arms against the government.” [emphasis added]"

If even .1% of that 37% did so, it would be 118,000 people.  If done as lone wolf attacks, the government would cease to function.  How many government agencies would still have employees willing to go to an office if on any given day 1000 would be facing sniper attack.  With few exceptions, government agencies sit in buildings in urban areas, where sniper hides are easily constructed.   Even one revolutionary with a bolt action .308 could fire five shots and make the building no longer useful for its function for the day.  Shoot, then scoot.  Admittedly most bolt action rifles are not takedown so not easy to move around surreptitiously.   AR-15s, because of the front takedown pins, fit into a standard guitar case. 

This is not a call for action, just a reminder that if the fascists do not stop soon, they may have a government that has nothing left but martial law.  Lockdowns for COVID-19 will generate for less ill will than the sort of heavy handed tactics required to win a war like this.
