This is what the armed insurrectionists look like (Pic Heavy)
Pics form the Rand Paul gun rally in Frankfort, Kentucky 3/27/2010

Rand Paul tells the armed crowd, "We've come to take our government back": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=04cp-Tz5kBM

121. If that is what our military, police etc. look like then we as a country are in deep shit.
I only saw a very few of these make believe soldiers that would come even close to passing a basic physical training course.. Every one of them are carrying at least an extra forty pounds. Let's put it this way, they do not inspire fear in me even the slightest... :shrug:

155. Not to the folks in the Gungeon
Take a look at this thread on "open carry", from yesterday.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...


After this post, which describes many of the goobers pictured here, imho:
If they let you know they're packin' , they're trouble. Double that if the talk about hot loads and extra-lethal (Black Talon, Hydra-shock) bullets, or how bad-ass their gun is. Constant diatribes about revenge, torture, and sabotage up the ante some more. There are other multipliers, too, but I don't want to give anybody's voices new ideas.
And bear in mind that, to me, Tuesday night rifle club = bowling, skeet & Trap = loud golf.

After that, I was accused of everything but molestation of underage goats.

140. I don't agree...
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

When the teabaggers use this as their call to action and accuse The President of infringing on their "security of a free state" because they believe he is...

a. A leftwing Radical who is intentionally bankrupting the country to cause chaos and revolution in order to recreate the nation as a Socialist utopia.

b. A muslim, manchurian candidate, who is trying to destroy the country from within.

c. The anti-Christ

Its way past time to reign them in.

171. Three commas?
I always understood it as:

"A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed."

Three commas makes it nonsensical grammatically.

The exact quote of text from the Constitution has 3 comma's and yes the placement of those comma's makes a difference in interpretation

Try diagramming it with three commas and see how much sense it makes.

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

211. Not true
The words that I put with the punctuation that I put are verbatim from the Constitution. You can want to pharse it differently you can want to change punctuation but that doesn't make it so and that is why there is such difficulty in trying to make sense of what the founders meant.

The awkward phrasing is part of what has made interpretation difficult.

218. you've been reading the NRA-edited version...
three commas is correct. And it makes perfect logic grammatically. "A well-regulated militia...shall not be infringed."
The phrase "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" is a subordinate clause to "A well-regulated milita".

so the argument about ammo kind of goes.

But after that, at this moment these guys would be easy to ahem run down... I mean a full run with seventy pounds in a forest...

Huff, puff.

But unlike most here, I don't laugh... that is a mistake... but that is just me.

I forget which one - I did my senior project on them... there's one that's essentially a bunch of fat bubbas who like to go out in the woods and play soldier and drink beer and are hoping and praying for others to start a race war that they can jump on the tail-end of toward the end so they don't put themselves in danger.

168. It's considered a "flare launcher" - 37mm only
40mm is for grenade ammuntion and those are illegal.

A non-functional 'nade launcher attached to his AR15/M16 simply to make it look "tacticool".

Here I am cutting my tooth brush in half to save hiking weight and these idiots have every single uni-tasker tool attached directly to them. I would hate to see what a two day pack looks like for these guys. Probably requires Sherpas and Pack mules to haul their gear.

190. It's a "destructive devise"
If you can get an leo $ignoff and it's legal to own in your state, you can have your own M203 grenade launcher for the cost of a tax stamp and the launcher. Each explosive round is also a destructive device and needs it's own leo $ignoff and tax stamp ($200 each, iirc). Chalk rounds are popular. I have a police officer friend who has all the toys, all legally owned with lots of BATFE paperwork.

Just the thing for those little control avalanches when you're out cross country skiing or snowmobiling.

For some reason, I like to take a lot of stuff with me (diabetic supplies, medications, cell phone, keys, swiss army knife) and a snazzy pocket vest is always nice.

128. He's running for Senator, Bunning's seat
And if he beats the establishment Republican in the Primary he will be the Rep candidate. The Democratic Primary has two candidates, one blue dog and one that is not so blue (hey, it's KY).

The silver lining could be that Trey Grayson, the standard rethug candidate, is having to spend quite a bit of money on the primary thanks to Mr. Crazy-Pants Rand Paul. The Dems seem to have fewer ads right now. I am hoping that whoever comes out on the Dem side will be in a decent financial position for the main campaign.

Grayson is supported big time by Dick Cheney. I would rather see a Dem face an End-The-Fed libertarian than a neo-con in November for one simple reason: the neo-cons have deeper pockets.

52. I still find it disturbing that "machine guns" can be owned by almost any idiot in this country.
I know there is some law that these guns can only fire one shot at a time so that makes them "legal". But of course also any idiot knows how to restore the automatic firing capability.

255. No, because the ATF classifies any "easily convertible" semi-auto AS a full auto
Its amazing how many people profess gun ownership but know nothing about the laws of this country.

Any semi-automatic rifle manufactured or imported into this country is manufactured without the parts (Sear, Fire control group, etc) needed for fully automatic fire. AR-15s, the civilian model of the "select fire" M-16, are manufactured with a receiver (The part that holds the bolt, trigger and barrel together) that is a different size than the M-16 receiver and has no holes for full-auto parts.

Yeah, you could maybe make a full-auto if you machined a new receiver and machined the full-auto parts, but that's not "easily convertible" that's manufacturing a new machine gun.

Trust the ATF, those scary black rifles are semi-autos.

274. Most of those are scams...
And even if they tell you how to do it, where do you think you'll find the parts?

In any case, manufacturing a new full-auto is an instant felony, and the ATF takes great joy in arresting people who do it.

63. I am fascinated by the parallels here...
...between these guys and the beginnings of the Sturmabteilung (SA), the right-wing para-military group that facilitated the NSDAP's rise to power in Germany in the 1930s. Not saying history must or even will repeat itself, but it's interesting to me that two different groups nearly a century apart are at least initially developing along very very similar lines.

I know it's too much to ask, but these guys might want to read up on what became of the SA once the Nazis obtained power -- it wasn't pretty.

Of course one big difference is that the SA stormtroopers were a lot younger and a lot more fit than this crowd, and were mostly really combat veterans instead of make-believe commandos!

Well with that I've fulfilled the demands of Godwin's Law, so now we can move on... :-)

101. Morning everyone!
Great pics. The mods would like to leave this thread open however we would ask that everyone cease and desist with the small penis and fat jokes. They are offensive to some of the members.

Thanks very much.

104. FYI: We are deleting the fat jokes in this thread.
The gentlemen in the photos from the OP truly are ridiculous in their militia costumes and I understand the desire to ridicule them. But making fun of their weight is not appropriate. We would prefer not to lock this thread, because the OP is within bounds, but we may have to if this keeps up. It would be insensitive to allow this to continue like this.

You can help the mods by clicking the "Alert" link on any offending posts.

And while I'm here, I should probably say this, too. We usually delete "small penis" jokes as personal attacks when they are posted in the Guns forum. We are still deciding whether they need to be deleted from this thread. I find it hard to believe that liberal gun owners would feel personally attacked in this context. But you never know.

235. The joke isn't that they're fat.
The joke is that they think of themselves and dress up like their some kind of super-warriors, like modern day Spartans when a lot of them could obviously not make it to the driveway without getting winded. Reminds me of character evidence in a trial. Generally the prosecution is not allowed to use it. Yet when the defendant produces evidence of his own good character, he opens the door for attacks on it by the state.

I'm not making fun of the people dressed in civilian clothes who are fat, because that would really be off color. I'M FAT. Really fat. I don't dress up camouflage and expect people to believe I'm some kind of super-warrior, because that would be idiotic. That would be inviting ridicule.

Just sayin'. :hi:

113. These guys remind me of the sci-fi geeks that get all dressed up
for star wars conventions. They're living in their fantasy world. If they ever did get in a gun battle most would likely die of a heart attack from over exertion in the first 15 minutes. 90% are old overweight white guys with high blood pressure and heart disease. I'll bet most are career alcoholics too.

161. The difference is the costume people know it's all for entertainment...
If you look at it broadly enough, it's just about everywhere. I figure that between costumers, cosplayers, re-enactors, clowns, costumes for Mardi Gras, Carnavale, actors, the Philadelphia Mummers, sports team mascots, Halloween, Santa costumes, Uncle Sam costumes, etc., dressing up is just one of the ways that a lot of people have of expressing themselves when they enjoy or have some enthusiasm for something.

These guys, on the other hand, are the ones claiming that they're not all just dressing up.

I knew you had to be a FREAK to support Rand Paul, but man, these are MILITIA FREAKS. The looks on some of these men's faces are cold too. Like having a big gun automatically puts them in charge of anyone who doesn't. Those guys are not gun owners like my brother-in-law, who is an avid hunter. Those guys want power.

That was Saturday, I had no idea this even happened, I live in Lexington, about 30 miles away.

How did some nut get a grenade launcher? I don't know the military nomenclature these days, but in my day, they called it an M-203, (and I still remember the old M-79 way back!).

What's up w/the throwback to the muzzle loaders? A .69 caliber hunk of lead at relatively slow velocity will produce a devastating wound, but these guys would be lucky to get off one shot, and the 50-100 yard range makes them pretty cool show pieces, but that's about all... :D

Hope they all wearing their Attends, they're going to need them... :rofl:

222. Can anyone wander any streets or parks with these guns??
It seems as though if I walked down the street dressed like this, and armed like this, I would be stopped by the police, or the SWAT teams would be called in. How is this OK?

Rand Fan?

It was hard to picture these guys plowing through the 1,000 pages of "objectivist" drivel known as Atlas Shrugged.

241. Where are the gun control advocates?
Bunch of stupid, probably drunk, hicks strapped to the brim with assault rifles and not a single shooting? And they are a bunch of stupid, drunk, hicks.

Even idiots can be responsible gun owners.

251. AR-15 with gobs of crap bolted on.
The big scary tube bolted on below the barrel is a 37mm flare launcher, which looks a lot like a M203 40mm grenade launcher but is incapable of actually firing anything more destructive than a signal flare (Though signal flares can be destructive, RE the Patick Cudahy bacon factory fire of 2009 in Cudahy, Wi.)
Really, it may look all boogedy boogedy, but it's like chrome on a Harley Davidson, i.e., dead weight.

259. Just imagine
So lets imagine they take they're plan to fruition. This is how incredibly dumb these Michigan militia guys are... so... they kill a law officer... then... during the funeral they attack and kill scores more mourning officers... with explosives and small arms fire. They retreat to their rally positions and wait for the response.... while all the time they believe they've sparked a rebellion in which others will take up arms and join they're cause. But... with the state gathering intelligence quickly and secluding the 'area' where these morons are in a defensive position with... let me remind people again... "small arms" capability, the governor orders in the states national guard. This is not the same national guard pre-2001. Most national guard summoned for the assault.. are battle tested and combat veterans from the recent campaigns.... who fought for the country they love. They will have all the REAL training... up to date technology... supreme weaponry .... heavy armor... and air dominance. They would make short order work with extreme prejudice... and before you could blow a kiss... these 'playtime militia' would be gone.... history... fertalizer and a chill would run down the spines of every single nut bag so called militia patriot that... civil war belongs in the history books of a long time ago. Maybe thats the reality these guys need to see to understand these potential actions have consequences, and they are all dire... for them that is.

265.  armed cowards playing dress up.
a couple of the people I grew up with are teabaggers and gun nuts. Some of them have been warning me of a race war since the early 1980's and telling me that since I live in Oakland I need to get some guns. All of them seem to live in constant fear.These pathetic and cowardly people scare me more than any other people around these days.

271. Five or seven guys posing with rifles, shotguns, and props
Edited on Wed Mar-31-10 09:15 PM by benEzra
don't exactly strike me as a threat to the Republic, although they certainly succeeded in grabbing media attention. I imagine DU gun owners alone outnumber them about 100 to 1.

You can worry over that if you want, but if you consider how many rifle and shotgun owners there are even in Tennessee alone, and divide that by the number who showed up for that rally, I would say that the in-your-face posturing is rather unpopular there.

273. As a shooter, this doesn't strike me as much of a turnout.
Given the per capita ownership rate in Tennessee, you could probably assemble more than that from a good sized yoga class or the crowd at the local Starbucks. :-)

To me, it looks like only one of those guys is probably a serious AR shooter (the one with the flattop upper, Aimpoint, and BUIS, which is actually a well thought out setup). The old school 20" with the relic Colt 4x on the carry handle and fake grenade launcher is just for show, and the A2-upper carbine on the homemade single-point doesn't look like it has been used much (wish the resolution were better to check the finish of the case deflector and ejection port cover). I also see one straight-stocked SKS (Tom Clancy Lookalike Guy), a hunting shotgun of some variety (Aggressive Sign Guy), and what looks to be a high-end AK variant (maybe a Krebs, but I can't see enough of it to tell).
