What? The military would have absolutely zero trouble with this. Machine guns from a tank for people on foot, carpet bombing for troubled neighbourhoods.
I don’t get how people in the year 2021 think them having an assault rifle will do a goddammn thing to protect their liberties. If the government (particularly the american government) wants you dead, you’re dead. A drone from 40k feet isn’t even going to be visible to you, and you’re done.
Right now, a relatively peaceful protest is being overreacted to, and is an awful situation all around. But if more of their people had guns, it would just be a few more killed.
