Serious question here. Actually a three part question
Why is Virginia different from all the other states that have been stepping for so long? Why are people so sure that boog will happen now when it didn’t happen in CA, NY, MA, WA, RI, NJ, HI, IL, etc
let’s say a militia forms. How can the members act, and move and be sure that they aren’t infiltrated by ATF and FBI? Sure, they could keep it small, just local neighbors where everyone knows each other. But how far can they get without accepting help from outside sources (would patriots from other states even come?). And that opens them up to an inside man dismantling or arresting them before anything even happens.
And biggest question, is what exactly would “boogaloo” look like? Even if the politicians haven’t figured it out, we all know that door to door confiscation isn’t realistic. As long as there is a grandfather clause, I don’t see there being any actual opportunities to face off against police/national guard. What would a militia do? March on the state capital and forcibly depose the governor and state legislators? I see that as being incredibly unlikely and ultimately useless, if not downright counterproductive. I could theoretically see a Boston Massacre scenario, but that hinges on a large protest (most pro 2A demonstrations draw less than 100 people) AND the authorities engaging against protesters. As long as they don’t start firing tear gas, bullets probably won’t be fired either. And even if they are…lets say there are some local skirmishes that the militia wins. What’s the bigger picture? Where can it go and where does it go from there? What would a strategy/ timeline for a second civil war look like?
and bonus question…it’s fun to sling memes and keyboard oper8…but are people actually serious about risking their lives and livelihoods right now? Like say there was a legit militia forming in VA that put out a call for people. How many would jump in the car and head there today?

You’re glowing pretty bright with this one

The only part of that i’m going to touch is the “why is VA different?” part. VA went from having next to ZERO shitty gun laws to California level fuckery almost literally overnight. The people who grew up for generations without getting stepped on suddenly got stepped on hard and aren’t taking kindly to that. California got stepped on gradually over a period of 60+ years. To me, that is what is making VA different.

I like to think the fbi has some high up guy’s autistic nephew that they keep out of the way by making him put up glowposts on reddit

It would look like complete and utter chaos, standoffs, firebombing, and the like. Picture the LA riots with a purpose (and better weapons).

1) There is no fight club
2) Shut up Wesley

The answer is simple. There is no boog.

If best gunnit has taught me anything it would look like Saints Row with a lot of added autism.
