If the Los Angeles riots taught us anything, it’s that you’re a fool if you count on the authorities to protect you in times of civil chaos — in fact, at any time. In the end, only I can protect my family.

I would like to hear more about your reaction to Ruby Ridge and how it affected your life.
I’ve done that in previous blog posts which are currently offline. I was going to try and get those back online this weekend but that might be delayed. My mom is likely to die in the next couple of days. I’ll respond when I’m able.
An armed person is a citizen, an unarmed person is a subject, soon to become a statistic. Government cannot take away what was not theirs to give in the first place.
