    Also, we are not allowed to use force, deadly or not, against police, even if we do not know that they are police (e.g., plain clothed, unidentified).

    Which basically means it's a pointless law unless you are shooting at someone you 100% know is not police.

    1. Isn’t that the point of the 2nd amendment? Like if they start to infringe on your rights a public militia can start which would inherently be against police/state?


    2. If they’re unidentified how can you be held accountable?


    Again I’m an outsider I might miss context here

    This. It doesn't make sense.

    But neither does police officers in plain clothes serving a warrant at 3:00 AM by knocking your door down and barging in.

    We have a lot of outdated, nonsensical and/or contradictory laws here that need to be updated reviewed for overall consistency.

    IMO 2nd amendment works great for rich white people who want to kill someone on their property, “defend”themselves in vigilante justice, and for fear monger politicians in the pocket of the NRA to continue pushing gun sales. It fails legal carrying minorities, poor white people, anyone unlucky enough to find themselves in possession of a legal weapon around the police, and any American who has been a victim of gun violence.

    The 2nd itself can be read any number of ways, from only a militia should get guns to everyone should get guns.

    To me I am horrified that all of this violence in America is pushing even more people to go out and buy weapons.

    Don't forget Philando Castille, who calmly informed a police officer during a traffic stop that he had a legal permit to carry a weapon - the cop fired seven times at him from close range (and missed twice, which is also BS on its own, considering there was also a woman and a 4 year old in the car). So the Second Amendment means the right to self defense, unless if you are a minority or the person attacking you wears a badge. Also keep in mind that courts in some states have rules that "qualified immunity" applies to off duty cops as well. So if an off duty cop, regardless of his criminal history, shoots you in a bar fight, even if you weren't trying to fight anyone, he can claim that he was scared and you looked vaguely like the person who started the fight, and he would be off the hook, at least in most states.

    So two white cops in maine can be quickly fired and face criminal charges for beating a porcupine to death.

    2 for 2 on a Trump guy getting shot dead pepper spraying someone. I thought they were the armed leaders of the second Civil War that we all needed to worry about?

    So will that guy also get a 1M$ GoFundMe for his efforts, or does that only work when killing a couple of radical antifa leftists.

    Pinkerton (no, really, an actual Pinkerton) vs Right Winger is a real life manifestation of the Spiderman pointing meme.
    Like clockwork, the far-right are trying to claim the Pinkerton guy was actually an Antifa member even though the police have ruled out any ties to Antifa.

    I'm wondering at what point two right-wing militias end up mistaking each other for the opposite side and exchanging gunfire, until one side yells "white power" and the other exclaims "boy, is my face red".

    Further embodied in this altercation, by the fact the argument started between the Trumpy here and a guy in a 'Black Guns Matter' shirt.

    You mean using his stimulous money to have someone in another state buy a gun for you?

    How many felonies does that make for all involved on his "team", before ever even firing a single bullet that night?
