Family of "Brownshirts"

So I was thinking of all sorts of different scenarios for the upcoming year including the ever “living and breathing” threats to the Constitution. I have a good handful of nieces and nephews who voted for the party of bunnies, buttercups and butterflies.

I asked my wife, (the voice of reason) “Do you think any of them would “REPORT” all the firearms and ammo that Uncle Fizbin to the authorities?”

Even though we are all family and they have all said that that “in the event of an EOTW scenario we’re all going to Uncle Fizbin’s compound” the recent social engineering would absolutely encourage them to report.

What do I (we) do when you have kept such a low profile with friends, social media, and more and your OPSEC can now be easily compromised by a “Family of Brownshirts”?

Its only a secret if you’re the only one who knows about it.

I think it’s smart to plan for the unimaginable. People are very unpredictable in extreme circumstances.

I suggest keeping tools around that ONLY you know about. Generic tools capable of multiple repairs till you can replace stolen items. Keep the family tool box on hand for emergency repairs but sometimes a personal tool box is reassuring.

I must admit that I had never considered this issue. I have anti gun family but they are not close, geographically or otherwise.

I think all of us should upgrade our OPSEC in the days ahead. The brownshirts will be on the offensive very soon.

In my case, I am especially worried about Virginia’s liberal “leadership”. They are, like last year, coming after our self-defense firearms again.

I still question some of that ‘leadership’.

I watched the results… and when I went to bed, there was a close race… when I woke, Warner and Biden suddenly had a massive lead…

And watched the Communist Spanberger … come from behind and take a huge lead…

Not so sure about that leadership. But… I got a Republican… :crazy_face:

It’s good to ask that question now.

I have 0 doubt that I have people who would turn me in.

Could you imagine earning “Social or Safety Credits” for turning people in?
If you earn so many credits you get a special “Social Badge” or different levels,
I firmly believe that these types (millennials and blue coats) would happily turn you in for a badge or social credit over cash.

Family… Nah I ain’t worried about family. :muscle:t5:

Co-Workers who are Dems… Them I worry about. You know the folk that come around certain conversations but never contribute anything to it. Their feelings do not outweigh our RIGHTS! :100:

A social experiment to give us an idea , at least in socialist states, who would report prohibited thanksgiving day gatherings if a reward is offered?

Better yet, how many would go get the free food (if invited) and then report the host. You just found your Bernie supporters.

GREAT POINTS @Greg35 and @BeanCounter on the Thanksgiving Day thing. Can you imagine a religiouse holiday like Christmas, Hanuka, Easter…
I hope and pray that we are all just talking stupid here.

@Fizbin, great post. I too have a lot of family members who fall in the bunnies/buttercups/butterflies category. I’ve never even considered the possibility of them reporting me, but … history teaches us that it is a very real possibility.

Working in my favor, almost none of them know that I carry or possess firearms, ammo, or any of that stuff I’m Constitutionally permitted to have.

That experiment has been done, in both a research setting and in reality.
The Milgram Experiments

And Hitler… at least. He had family and neighbors turn on each other…

It’s not hard to do. Look at current events. How many friendships or families have been divided and or destroyed over a difference of a political view. It hasn’t even gotten hard yet and people are turning on each other.

Grand Theft Auto in real time, except what they don’t realize is there is no “respawn” in three seconds. Stick your hand in the sharks mouth, you better expect to lose your arm!
This is typical of Hitler. Biden will kill us! As soon as we accept that we are already dead, we can win the war!

A buy back? Did the city sell them in the first place?
