    Exclamation Activism Idea: Funding armed citizens to protect and prevent looting and destruction?

    We managed to fund a few thousand bucks for people to attend the 2nd Amendment rally in VA.

    Nothing like what we could do back in the day, but still.

    So why not set up a funding system for armed citizens to support them in protecting private lives and property?



    'It’s just sickening': Owners of family bakery arm themselves with guns and scare off rioters

    Bakery owners in Ohio armed themselves with guns and defended their shop as protests in Cleveland became violent over the weekend.

    Rioters attempting to break into family-owned Corbo’s Bakery on Saturday using bats and other weapons backed down when they saw co-owner Joe Corbo and his two sons standing inside, armed with guns.

    “We don’t want any trouble. We don’t want you guys in here damaging our property. We’re just protecting our business, and truthfully, I would say maybe 80% of them understood. They left us alone and kept walking, and then, there was that 20% that just were accusing us of some things and crazy things that just weren’t true. We weren’t there to hurt anybody or cause a problem. We were just protecting our business,” co-owner Selena Corbo told a local Fox affiliate.

    I believe armed citizens would do it for free, it's the legal bills they would need help with.

    Ah, ok, now I see the activism.

    + REP

    As I stated in the other thread, lockdowns, curfews, the riots across the country, isn't the real threat. Yes, the riots are important and I believe this is a great activism effort for reasons you correctly outlined. But IMO, the very real and permanent threat is happening here in this country and globally, and most folks are simply shrugging it off, or do not understand the ramifications on a scale never seen before.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    Problem may be that you can't cross state lines to do it.

    Pretty good idea to me.
