It sounds like mass deportations are starting.

Federal agents conduct immigration enforcement raids in at least six states
Quote:
Trump has pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Last month he also made a change to the Obama administration’s policy of prioritizing deportation for convicted criminals, substantially broadening the scope of who the Department of Homeland Security can target to include those with minor offenses or no convictions at all.


This part made me lol - ICE tried to throw Political Correctness at the WaPo but they aren't having it:
Quote:
ICE dislikes the term “raids,” and prefers to say authorities are conducting “targeted enforcement actions.”

Christensen said the raids, which began Monday and ended Friday at noon, found undocumented immigrants from a dozen Latin American countries.


They sound like scary people:
Quote:
ICE agents in the Los Angeles area Thursday swept a number of individuals into custody over the course of an hour, seizing them from their homes and on their way to work in daytime operations, activists said.

Scary stuff.

Maybe I wasn't so crazy for supporting the 2nd amendment for the purpose of defending ourselves against our own government. This administration doesn't bother pretending to not be Nazis.

So the answer to everything is more guns and more gun protection.

Hillary lost me when she implied we should go to war with Russia. I didn't vote for Trump. But I was optimistic that was saying crazy [expletive] to get elected then make mostly financial changes and healthcare. Unfortunately, he's a psycho.

But regardless, it's the situation we're in. And it's scary.

Not sure where I said I want more guns. I'm referring to people thinking the 2nd amendment being there to defend from tyranny was a crazy, outdated concept. It's not.

I always said that if there was a good reason for the 2nd amendment, it was this, and i remember feeling like a crazy conspiracy theorist for saying it really not all too long ago.

I've always said that, but I've also said that it's outdated. It's not outdated because we have a nutjob president, it's outdated because the US military he would deploy, should an armed coup spring up, would be swift and merciless. The US military is far too advanced to fall to a civilian militia. An immigrant holding a gun and taking shots at immigration officials who are coming for him and his family would end with a very poor result for that gun owner.

Fair enough. Still, what middle said. Plus, soooo many of the pro gun ppl I know are okay with Trump's antics. Maybe they're just the vocal ones.

Cause not having a two day waiting period and a background check on your 9mm is going to protect you from drones.
