I know you've already kind of been beaten with the info stick (which never seems to work), but if there were no weapons, why have there been guilty pleas to assault with a deadly weapon?It appears we have a disagreement on what an armed insurrection is.
How many shots were fired and by who?
How many firearms were confiscated at the event?
How many members of congress were directly confronted?
Why were the insurrectionists taking selfies and posting them on social media?
I stand by my opinion, it was a riot. There was no consolidated effort to achieve a goal. There were no defined operational parameters, there was no clear organization.
I've said it again and again, my boy scout troop could have planed and executed a far more successful operation. This was a pack of fired up idiots that once again prove my theory that as the number of people in an angry group increases, the average IQ decreases.
Stupid people do stupid things, this is axiomatic. It's so fundamental to the human condition that we don't address the issue, we simply make laws to try and control the idiots.
