    Yes it can. It can be much much much worse. I am not making any predictions. But that was a very stupid thing to say.

    Hardly. It's actually an astute observation.

    If you want worse, that would require an actual military to be involved.

    Trump has a copy of the search warrant.
    The warrant will state what the FBI was looking for and what crimes the FBI feels were committed.

    Why isn't Trump releasing the warrant? It must be really bad.

    And despite all the right wing citizens who take advantage of the 2nd amendment, not a single one belongs to a well regulated militia. But why would they, because these militias were to defend the state, not attack it.

    I'm really curious what these far right people who refer to a new civil war would attack. Would they do a call to arms and all these confused right wing patriots gather in the middle of intersections blocking traffic and not know who to shoot.

    Seriously, who would all these right wing civil war patriots actually attack? The FBI building? The DOJ building? Libs? Would they break into county election boards and steal the voting registrations and target anyone who is registered Democrat? Or are these right wingers just confused and scared little people who lack the maturity to present a rational response? These are your people, so clue us in.

    Given what we've seen so far in various attacks on individuals and peaceful protesters along with violent threats, I would assume attacks and assassinations. Why the assault happened in this story was in question, but it's the kind of thing I expect.

    My bet is Trump's "supporters" have no intention of risking serious prosecution for his sake a second time.

    The 2nd Amendment doesn't require it.
    You can try to read requirement into it,
    but the mention of militias is as a basis.
    It does not say that anyone must belong.

    I'm reminded of cops who insist that citizen
    journalists aren't members of "the press", &
    therefore have no right to cover & record
    events. Don't be like thug cops, always
    seeking constitutional inferences for the
    purpose of denying civil liberties.

    Extremists are too knee jerk to do anything intelligent. They react without thinking. It's all emotion based.

    There will be violence for sure and the the longer this goes on the worse it will be imo,Trump used the 5th 440 times,in his own words he must be hiding something so if there’s enough evidence against him then he needs to go to trial asap.
