With the recent clash between the BLM and a Nevada rancher we can see how the right to bear arms can be used to protect against a big government intrusion. I was wondering what vgcharters thought of the recent event, and how the right to own guns helped protect this man, his family, and his belongings from the long arm of the government. I dont think this would have ended peacfully if the internet did not exist and it wasn't being talked about so much on the interent (since the mainstream media didnt cover it that much, at least from what I saw) so that played a role as well. Would of been harder for big government to spin this in a good fashion with events unfolding in realtime for everyone to see. So I am glad for the internet too.
