Spartan, you don’t think that weapons were carried during Jan 6th?

Washington DC is strict on guns but there are plenty of other forms of weapons, armor, et al…

But a review of the federal charges against the alleged rioters shows that they did come armed, and with a variety of weapons: stun guns, pepper spray, baseball bats and flagpoles wielded as clubs.

Dunno about you, but I don’t recall the last insurrection/revolution that succeeded where the protagonists armed themselves with fire extinguishers.

Violence there was. A riot there was. But an attempt to overthrow the Govt with fire extinguishers? Strikes me as a bit of a stretch don’t you think?

Even if you reference the baseball bats, what do you think of the chances of success of overthrowing the Govt? You know with the cops and National Guard being armed with guns and stuff? Bit of a lopsided revolution perhaps?
