what these guys did. Granted, Weaver was forced into a shootout but he still didn't roll over and give up without a fight, and Koresch damn sure wouldn't back down. If it was in the actual defense of my home and family I guess I could, I'm prepared, have guns, ammo, skills ect, but don't know if I could actually put the crosshairs of my 14x Springfield combat scope mounted on my DSA FAL on the forehead of a LEO and pull the trigger. That would be a point of no return cause I know they would not let you get out alive after that happened. My question is, what if the attackers were te police? At what point do we have the right to use deadly force? Would it be justifiable in response to deadly force?


What the government did was wrong but that does not make stupidity a virtue.

Having said the people in the Koresch compound that were tried for murder were acquitted… the jury must have felt the were justified in using force.

Only if they started late.

Like around 4:00 PM.

I wonder how long it would take for the AST SWAT Team to arrive.

Weren't the charges against Weaver also dropped? If so then wasn't the return of deadly force against deadly force justifiable?

Do you really think you would survive a shootout with the popo?

ETA: I know a couple of guys on the AST SWAT team, they are good.

Now, I don't know your local Po-po, but Im pretty sure they're smarter than some guy that puts a 14X scope on a battle rifle then expects to use it in his front yard.

let me be the first to welcome the guys from the FBI to this thread....

(I have no idea who this axl fellow is)

Reminds me of the last Gunfight in Austin (not these little gang related drive by's, but the last Old West one. At 100 yards, one man pulled his colt single action army, the other his rifle. At trial it was deemed a suicide.

That reminded me of a book that said there was a special place in hell for those who choose to die rather than fight on another day (very paraphrased).

i don't want to "put the crosshairs on" anyone, but i will if i am attacked by someone determined to kill me. i'm not going to exclude anyone based on their affiliations. i'll just leave it at that.

oh yeah:


ETA: i don't want to be the next koresh or weaver for a multitude of reasons, but shooting it out with the .gov is one of them.
