They've never had to reconcile anything. They've been favoring criminals over lawful citizens for as long as I can remember. Opening jails, opening borders, decriminalizing theft, using ANTIFA to violently suppress free speech and outlawing legal self defense. They destroy rights, destroy wealth and destroy the fabric of the communities they take over. Once great cities turn into toilets under the Dems. Most of this police abuse and rioting are happening in Areas where the Dems have had control for generations. Not to mention nearly all their gun violence. Their idea of reconciliation is to blame Republicans for the failure of Democrats. They're burning down communities that have been run by Dems and blaming Trump.I just posted this this morning on FB:
So... How will the progressives reconcile their anti-2nd Amendment stance with disbanding law enforcement (police), since that's who they claim we should all call when trouble finds us?
I've always felt that defending against "tyranny" was less about the Federal government or even legitimate local governments. I think it's more about small groups that try to "govern" an area without authority. These rioters are "governing" the city streets. ANTIFA is "governing" the streets in certain cities and violently enforcing the Dems message. This is where the 2A really comes into play and why the Progressives need to destroy it.You all may be correct.
The former anti-gunners may come to the conclusion that one of the reasons founders wanted people to have arms was to defend against a Monarch/dictator,and that that situation has finally happened. I have been of that belief since I bought my first gun.
Since non-gunners are a very large group (majority) and they could buy guns because of the second amend.,things could change.
That fits in perfectly with current events but when BHO was POTUS, MANY HERE were talking about fear of gov't.I've always felt that defending against "tyranny" was less about the Federal government or even legitimate local governments.

Hopefully some of these new gun owners will vote to protect their newly realized rights. Dems are all about FEELINGS. It's fine to TALK and FEEL about gun rights but VOTING is all that matters.
A tyrannical government and a government that fails in it's obligations are the same thing.Not just a tyrannical Government, but a government that fails in its obligations to its citizens. For example, we do not have to completely rewrite/redefine our system, we could replace all the government staff and personnel with people capable of governing. That is the reserved privilege in our design (among others).
Sorry,I thought we were talking about a GOVERNMENT not just an agency.not. quite.
While a tyrannical government is exercising a failing, A government that cannot execute its own policies to the satisfaction of its people is failing.
For example, and this has nothing to do with anyone's agreement or disagreement of this example's policy. If a City Council feels the need to disband its police force, they are doing so because said police force has failed to do its job. At some time the people, through its City Council put into place a police force with the objective to perform whatever it is they wrote into the Charter. Now,there is a call to disband because they did not perform to their reason for existence. That is an example of a failed government agency. it did not perform its task.
And before everyone else chimes in, The point is the creation and the disbanding of an agency. The how and the why is irrelevant to this point.
And who set up the current events? I don't see conservative groups rioting, burning businesses, assaulting/murdering people or calling for citizens and police to disarm and bow before the mob.That fits in perfectly with current events but when BHO was POTUS, MANY HERE were talking about fear of gov't.
