    Home Resident Killed by Maryland Police Trying Confiscate His Guns

    This action is one of the prepper threats in my Threat Analysis Spreadsheet. I did not think that the danger level was high enough for this to happen, yet, but I am adjusting my estimate now.

    [edit] Short article, but read the comments which follow this article.

    This is a sad example of what we have all feared might happen. These are the laws that lead to tyranny and radical dictatorships.

    If I lived in Maryland, I would be planning some canoe trips with any guns which I might, theoretically, own. It is no longer a humorous prepper meme.

    Out of state storage also looks good, at least right now, but policies and laws are changing. Be aware.

    Watch for other states to follow this route. Perhaps a state near you?

    Laws like this about guns is one thing. Not a good thing, but there are far worse ways these laws could be written. When they change it from "he's crazy and he has guns" to just "he's crazy" we are going to be in a heap of trouble.

    All it takes after that is a ruling that any Republican or Democrat, Christian or Muslim, etc.... is mentally I'll and we are on our way to genocide

    That's a good resource link. It lists almost all the US States and their current laws/policy about gun ownership.

    I hope things don't deteriorate to the point of armed rebellion (civil war) but the particular incident, that is cited in my original post, is one more straw on the camel/mules back. If this continues, I do expect stronger opposition to appear, first the legal appeals and if those fail, then angry crowds... Then next step might well be civil disobedience, followed by uncivil actions...

    We already begun moving down this road. Got canoe?

    Another way for them to take our weapons and legal rights from us.

    Maryland is a bad state. Period.
