  1. what does a suspicious vehicle look like? Did it have iraqi or afghanistan plates? Are its headlights shifty lookin?

  2. Around here your car is your castle and it is perfectly permissible and normal to carry a loaded gun in the car. It requires no license for the gun or the ammo. What a strange world is DC.


    Sanctuary cities/states for gun owners!

    🔥 I don’t like this article ONE BIT. I could care a less if his gun and ammo were unregistered. We have a 2nd Amendment, what do you expect?

    🔥 One conspiracy I read was that the Secret Service uses BACK-SCATTER trucks to scan an entire area before the President visits and they can get a scan of what’s inside everything: cars, trucks, surface of buildings, 1 foot below ground, even what’s under people’s clothes.
    Sounds like they scanned this car, saw a weapon, then stopped it as “suspicious.” –nope, they knew what was inside of it before the stopped it.
    🔥 Like the NSA finds dirt on you, tips off local police, they bust you, then instead of crediting the NSA (which they can’t), they chalk it up as, “Fine police work” as they reverse engineer the tip-off to make it look like they did research.

  4. 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.

    D.C. Is no place to be without a gun.
    Dare I say, “Shithole”?

  5. This is why I hate to go east of the Mississippi. It’s like a different Country once you cross that river. I feel sorry for the sane law abiding people that are stuck in that part of what was once a great Nation. It’s just as bad west of the Rockies.

  6. What the fook good is an unloaded gun? May as well carry a brick.
