    It could, but the outcome will always be different. The civillisn militia does not have the color of authority.

    ~ The deputy, illuminated by Malley’s flashlight at this point, identified himself as law enforcement, pointing out the “word sheriff across his chest,” and ordered Malley to drop his weapon.

    “You aren’t taking my weapons,”~


    Sounds like a jackass. He just got through pointing a weapon at a Sheriff Deputy! And yes, the Sheriff has every right to bet on the best odds. "If they continue this, there could be some dead militia out there." They're embarking on a dicey mission if they aren't in proper communication with LE IMO.

    I like what he said. Also if the sheriff's office would do their job along with Gov. officials then we wouldn't have to have roaming civillian's doing their job. Just my 2 cents.

    Self-appointed nutjobs like this are our worst enemy. They make every gun owner in America look like a low-intellect Bubba. Take all of their guns away from them and make it illegal for them to even look at a gun ever again.

    Militias make me giggle. If you really think you can take on local LEO in a standup fight let alone the US military you got a slaughter coming your way.

    For every guerilla in the field, you need ten well trained loyal troops. This was a lesson learned in Viet Nam.

    We had a crazy guy recruiting for a local militia. Last I heard was he was arrested and lost his concealed handgun license. When he hit me up to join at a LGS and tried to give me a flyer, I laughed at him and told him to let me know how it worked out for him. I guess it didn't work out.

    Never underestimate your opponent. That is the first step towards total failure in the field.

    From the wars of feudal Japan, to the fields of south east Asia, and the mountains of Kandahar, peasants with arms have asserted themselves.

    Forgetting history is always leads to the FUBAR sit reps.

    The Brits can confirm this. They have had a lot of lessons of their own.

    The words Zulu, and IRA come to mind as most recent.

    This has bad written all over it. I know there are many out there who think these guys are doing a great public service, but I don't see it that way. There's is no difference in their actions than if they were walking down the street and pulled a weapon on someone they thought might be breaking the law. I know illegals are a big problem and I for one would like to see immigration reform that starts with "all illegal aliens will be thrown out of this country". Somehow I don't think our representatives have the guts for anything that honest. All that being said, sheriff Joe has a point, and I think in his own "special" way he's right. good luck
