I admit that I did not expect that Canada would fall faster than the US.

A law is being passed that outlaws all protests that are not preapproved by the government.

The police brag that those who protest illegally will hear the jackboots on the ground.

This is the point where the police have openly declared that they are against freedom, and that the war has begun. To those of you who are police officers and still listen to reason- please think about what you are doing. This is the point where the war doesn’t stop when you clock out and go home. Citizens know that they aren’t strong enough to take on the cops and the military in open combat.

So combat will not be open. The citizens won’t see a distinction between “on the clock” you, and “off work” you. You will be an enemy 100% of the time. Why should citizens take you on while you are on horseback, wearing armor, and surrounded by reinforcements? Why not wait until you are out mowing the lawn, all by yourself and unarmed? Why wouldn’t citizens target your wives and children while you are out tramping your jackboots on the heads of old ladies with walkers? Or how far away can a person be in an urban environment with a decent 308 rifle and have a good enough sight line to hit a horse/rider combo? Or a crowd of a few dozen cops? 500 yards? 800?

This is a dangerous point for all concerned. If this sort of thing moves south of the Canadian border, expect things to get sporty.

It’s easy to talk big when there’s no consequences, I’ll do this and I’ll do that. (I’m guilty of that myself especially if beer has been involved)
This is playing with fire for the cops and also for anyone who’s thinking he’s had about enough.
That said, I think it’s time to re-read Unintended Consequences, the storyline of which has a number of similarities to the Canadian situation and what I am sure Merrick Garland is eager to bring here. At some point, some guys (and gals maybe too) will have had enough and things like you’re talking about could happen. And if a critical mass of people hear about it happening, well they’re going to run out of .gov minions first and fast if that happens.

    I know it’s a movie, but remember “The Outlaw Josey Wales.” If you haven’t seen it, the protagonist of the movie is a farmer who is doing all he can to ignore the Civil war when his entire family is murdered by a unit of Union soldiers. A man with nothing to lose and a mission of vengeance, Josey joins the war on the side of the Confederacy in order to exact his revenge.
    Or turn to the movie Braveheart.

    The point of this story is point out that all it takes is for one person to lose all that he holds dear, before deciding that there is nothing left to lose, so he might as well exact a bit of revenge. Sooner or later, there will be such a person. There always is.

1 MOA is 8″ at 800 yards. You would be better off with a higher sectional density projectile for a lot of reasons. Don’t believe me…ask the Swedes about their 96 Mausers. But, 200-300 yards is probably what you would end up with for urban work. Think about the intersection set-ups used by the IRA…with a fairly low rate of dirt naps in retrospect.

    Firing at a horse and rider, or into a large beaten area filled with bunched up targets doesn’t require precision. Look to Vegas for an example.

    The British army has a similar theory with the GPMG (the ‘Gimpy’) when used as an area weapon. They actually use a light machine gun as an indirect fire weapon, where it is aimed over a hill to strike into a “beaten zone” where the law of averages allows it to fire on massed troops.

    A rifle could clearly do something similar into a large group of cops.

    And you have never ever even seen a target over 200 yards. Out here if you can’t do P Dogs at 6 go home until you can. Love hearing peolpe ramble who live in places where 200 is a long ways away. North Wyoming is home and my range

      LOL. Yeah, it’s pretty hard to get a good sight line of 300 yards or more inside of a cityscape.
      At the same time, I wasn’t discussing marksmanship as much as I was discussing the tactical situation facing an Ontario protester type scenario. You aren’t going to be faced with 200 cops with cavalry support all standing shoulder to shoulder on the plains.

Small potatoes, for sure, but I just got home after watching an Osceola County Sheriff’s vehicle make three moving violations in the space of two miles — signals, lane changes, crosswalks — it’s the damned attitude.
