What's a "Three Percenter"?
During the American Revolution the number of actual fighters against King George was never more than 3% of the population. These forces were in turn supported by about 10% of the population.I don't know whether this sort of "red line" (wow, that sounds familiar! Who said that recently?) is a good idea or not. I do think most cops are junior thugs, and that at least a dozen recent incidents show that most cops are perfectly happy to shoot anyone they see carrying a gun. Cuz, you know.
The Three Percent are the folks the Founders counted on to save the Republic if everyone else abandoned it.
And we will.
We will not disarm.
You cannot convince us.
You cannot intimidate us.
You can try to kill us, if you think you can.
Please note that we’ll shoot back.
We are not going away.
We are not backing up one more inch.
And there are three million of us.
Your move, Mr. Wannabe Tyrant.
I can only see one up-side to making "we're gonna fight" declarations, which is to scare politicians into not continuing to either support or acquiesce to the expanding police state. I do believe the country would be far better off if all Statist politicians were so scared of an armed populace that they would simply refuse to vote in favor of more Statist laws--including funding federal and state agencies that carry out those abuses.
