Trump-Supporting Gun Owners Need to Stop Being Idiots


According to KVUE News in Austin, pro-Trump supporters showed up in the city at the Texas state capitol building.

They were armed:

 The FBI is warning about plans by thousands of armed protesters to show up at state capitols across the country and again in Washington, D.C. on the day of the inaguration.

How idiotic can you get?

At this time, you don't show up at protests armed. It is only going to push more people into the "take the guns away" camp.

Do not these protesters understand anything? Have they not read The Art of War by Sun Tzu?

Lesson number one from Sun Tzu is: 

Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.

A gun is a very powerful weapon, why would you take it to a protest to simply wave around?

What does this do other than provide energy to the anti-gun crowd for them to focus even more on taking guns away?

Also in  The Art of War:

Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.

Dancing around with powerful weapons that you have no intention of using at the time of a protest is counter-productive idiocy.

  1. Ummm, like the January 6th protesters, maybe these really aren’t Trump supporters.

    1. This is exactly right! The left continues to use it propaganda branch to push their right- centrist eradication plan.

      When the state and Nut Liberals come up against the serious side of the anti left it will not be grandiose and puffed up but be serious devastating.

      Those that discern the real issue will not be easily lured to stupidity.

  2. Well said Bob, demonstrations like this will cause the suburbs to shift even more leftward. There was some hope that the BLM and antifa riots would push these suburbs back to the Republicans and this was true compared to 2018 for everyone but Trump. The election was a clear rebuke of him, not to mention the disaster he caused in Georgia where he not only turned off rural communities, but pushed the suburbs back solidly Democrat.

    1. There are districts in my county reporting more votes than total population. He clearly lost support in the suburbs, even children, dogs and cats voted for Biden.

      In my state, we were only allowed to do a forensic audit in one county where a 68% error in counting was found.

      We were denied our day in court, no court wanted to see the evidence, expect more parabellum.

  3. These people absolutely need to listen to you, Wenzel. If libertarians have proven anything, it's that they know what it takes to bring about political success. Violence simply does not work. Look at the unequivocal failure of the BLM movement after they burned cities to the ground and did billions in property damage. Begging the powerful for your rights has been shown time and again to be the most effective way of securing them, especially after those same powerful people repeatedly make it harder for people to communicate.

  4. There is no way in Hell that a tactic of visually reminding government and Democrats "don't forget, we have firearms" is going to be the final persuasion that impels a reversal of the Election. More likely it will be a reminder that "there's still work to be done against those who are resisting our government encroachments."

    1. Perhaps if the people gave a demonstration on the functionality of the firearms...

    2. I understand you just come here to troll, but if you aren’t, you should read what RW wrote again.
      “Dancing around with powerful weapons that you have no intention of using at the time of a protest is counter-productive idiocy.“
      These people don’t intend to use their weapons. It’s a look at us rally. Well, they are looking, and they aren’t wringing their hands in fear of the protestors.
      Instead, they are rubbing their hands with glee.
      Look at what’s happening.
      To march around looking tough saying oo-rah and Merica when every available sophisticated recording device they have at their disposal will be recording them.
      Then, and hopefully it doesn’t come to this but it sure could, they can take the protesters down one by one when they are alone.

  5. American Thinker warns that this is a setup. I pray that nobody takes the bait.

    1. Based on the look of the flyer alone I'd have to say American Thinker is correct that it is a trap. We have to remember that any actions for Freedom will be shown differently in the media. Antifa and BLM can burn police stations and private businesses and be called peaceful protestors, while anyone else that attends a rally will be labeled an rioter.

  6. Waving guns is stupid. Using them isn't.
