Men discussed opening fire at pro-gun rally in Richmond, say officials

Source: The Hill

Three suspected neo-Nazis who were arrested this week in Maryland and Delaware discussed opening fire at a scheduled pro-gun rally Monday at Virginia's state Capitol, according to local law officials.

Three other men were also arrested in Georgia this week and have been linked to the same group as the men who allegedly planned the attack at Virginia capitol.

All six of the men are believed to be connected to a violent, white supremacist group called "the Base," The Wall Street Journal reports. The Georgia trio was arrested Wednesday for conspiring to murder a Georgia couple.

The group reportedly engages in activities such as recruiting members online, holding meetings to discuss strategy and participating in paramilitary training camps northwest of Atlanta. The group's mission, according to the Journal is to, "accelerate the downfall of the U.S. government, incite a race war and establish a white ethno-state." The newspaper obtained the mission through an affidavit associated with the Georgia arrests.

What a brilliant argument. "Let me have my guns or I'll kill you."

1. I don't know...

...but it really doesn't seem to me like opening fire at a gun-rights rally is the best way to convince people to come over to your side of the issue. It DOES seem like doing that would convince people that we really do need stronger gun control.

8. And they wonder why we demand gun control?

Old white men are the largest terrorist group in America.

9. This will sound harsh, but

there are only two acceptable places in the US for these kinds of extremists.

A) Prison, forever.

B) Holes in the ground.
