    When the moonbats ask if you really think the federal government would
    try to use force to take your guns, or to usurp your constitutional rights just
    remind them that Janet Reno & William Jefferson Clinton killed more children
    at Waco than Adam Lanza killed at Sandy Hook Elementary.

    They still call it a "tragedy"; it was an atrocity. It was a massacre, nothing
    less.

    As I recall in Waco the feds claimed illegal weapons stockpiles and meth
    production. Literally after the smoke cleared, IIRC no illegal weapson of
    any kind or any drug evidence was found. And not a single fed was
    charged with mis-conduct or murder charges.

    Same with Ruby Ridge, no crimes were commited by the citizen only by
    the feds with no repercussions.

    Pathetic.

    How easy would it be to declare that someone is suspected of having "illegal" weapons today?

    Coming to a home in your area!!!!!
    And you can't hide! There are drones out there!
    Oh yeah, your neighbor implicated that you do have an "assault rifle".

    (all said sarcastically)

    No one condones McVeighs actions but from his own words... Waco and Ruby Ridge were large factors in his motivation to act against the Federal Government by parking a truck bomb in front of the Oklahoma City Federal Building.

    As distasteful as we all find his act, there is no denying the fact that it put the Fed's on notice and opened there eyes to the reality that they are powerless to stop determined individuals from carrying out heinous acts against Federal assets and their employees.

    We saw Federal Para Military actions such as Waco and RR come to an abrupt halt for many years...

    I'd like to thank the OP for reminding everyone of this anniversary.

    Lest we Forget.

    Tack

    McVeigh had poor choice of targets; he actually did the opposite
    of his intentions, he made many take a step back. And allowed
    the Feds greater reach rather than rein them in.

    Often the IRA would bomb a Govt facility but call just in time so
    could evacuate inocents from the facility. Point made few casualties.

    Killing kids is not good PR for either side.
