You know what makes me sick? These were the same people who claimed there was lawlessness and looting and that american cities would be unsafe if Biden became president. They're the same people swinging sticks and dragging police through the capital. Double standards eh?

JoshTheBlack said:There is very likely a storm coming, and we are not ready for it. Our leadership seems wholly incapable of deescalation. The pot is at a low simmer and heading straight for a full on rolling boil. If this pot is allowed to boil over, it will be infinitely worse than the shutdowns and toilet paper shortages of April/May.
I urge all of my fellow BM family, especially in major cities, to have a plan in place. Pack a "go" bag. Food/water, first aid, clothes, flashlights, batteries, etc. Store up plenty of water. Maybe reconsider your stance on gun ownership. (If you do, learn how to use it safely! Go to a range and put a few hundred rounds through it once or twice a month. Know how to treat it, use it, and clean it.) Find some friends/family that live in a more rural area that would be willing to let you hunker down if it comes to it.
Maybe this whole thing can turn around and not pop off, but it's looking less and less likely. If it does, there will be people trying to help, and people trying to take advantage of the chaos. Remember, luck favors the prepared.
I agree with you about being prepared, but don't think everyone needs to arm themselves. More people die from suicide by gun or gun accidents then do from crime.
