I'm not being serious about going deer hunting in upstate NY. Mostly because poaching is illegal. I have to trust in our government to do the right thing. Unfortunately, they "can't" do anything until innocent citizens are harmed or killed.
I'm not talking about practicing "civilian defense" based on ideology or religion. I'm talking about "civilian defense" against a group of people who's religion is violence against any nonbelievers. People who strike fear in homeowners next to or near these training camps because there is automatic gun fire coming from their back yards. And the fact that they are training how to assassinate and murder people. Its a slap in the face to any victim of 9/11 and the war against terrorism.
Its a bullsh1t broken system because people like this, and other violent groups/religions, can get away with what they practice. It just infuriates me. Then I remember how worse off other countries are.
