More evidence that the left is trying to make as though it's right-wingers. Remember, Adams mom was a prepper too. The media went after that at one point too. Both sides are playing this game though. No one in the media, to my knowledge, mentions our own govt killing innocents. Nope, we get more calls for more govt surveillance to build the garrison state, eventhough it didn't work and eventhough strict Conn gun laws didn't prevent Sandy Hook. The state is more of the problem.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
