The real brass horde has already arrived in our area. Have a gun range in Peterborough NH, started in 1947 and doing well as far as members etc. The anti gunners, love the poor, protect the immigrants, stop all progress democrats and ultra liberal republicans, and yes there are some, now control the town. They have attempted to stop the range in court as they say the range has expanded without permits, enroached on wetlands, contaminated the soil with heavy metals, built unauthorized structures, etc. Don't have a dog in the fight, but the club has to raise money to go to court to fight the towns lawyers paid by the taxpayers, the town can keep changing the rules by "administrative acts", the code enforcement officer - building inspector is the local equivalent of God chosen on earth and the whole system will bow to his wishes. So now it is not right to "shoot" over a wetland, bullets in the berm are "lead contamination", gun shot noise is unacceptable noise pollution, putting up a roof over a shooting bench is an authorized construction, lighting up the range for night shooting is light pollution, the presence of the club is "reducing the value" of the neighbor's house constructed with full knowledge of the clubs functions, and on it goes. The ones who want your goods or to limit you in your preps will not sneak in some night and they will not drink the koolaide. They will file a court order, send out the police, enforce the order, and take what they wish. If you do try to stop them, they will tie you up in court for years, destroy you both financially and in the court of public opinion, and all the while prevent you from doing as you wish. Trump and company may try to limit the actions of the bureaucrats, but the EPA and all the rest are well dug in and will survive and it looks like in the long run win. Bureaucrats are all powerful in the long run, in a certain country in a certain period of time, they forced a group of people to register their religion, authorized their removal, paid for their transportation, constructed the camps, authorized the payment for the chemicals used to kill them, for the fuel needed to cremate them, and had the receipts to prove that it was all done legally and that all the money spent was accounted for. They then after the fact stood up in court and said we were just following the laws on the books and only a very few were ever punished. In my mind it is not sufficient to be in Alaska or the redoubt as the national laws will be enforced as the cattlemen, loggers, rural areas, water rights users, educational institutions, etc have already found out and a good portion of the present nation of sheep regard any action taken by their representatives as permanent changes and any actions taken by others to remove those changes as illegal. May end up being either grey or dead or most likely both.
