(Politico)   Lawyers for Oathkeepers: all that chatter about a "Quick Reaction Force" armed with "heavy weapons" to reinforce the group once they took the Capitol was just locker room talk. Prosecutors: Really? Then why did you cache weapons at a VA hotel?   (politico.com) divider line

This one kinda makes sense. Bringing weapons into DC is all kinds of illegal. Storing them in a Virginia hotel room isn't.

Unless they had RPGs and .50 cal machine guns they didn't come backed up with anything other than everyone else has to deal with in public.

Pile of assholes that think they're some sort of military and run around shooting at things once a month like shiatty cops. If you can't pull 18 rounds to a silver dollar and call yourself some sort of gun owner, find a field to fark off into.

Blue Falcon = BF = Buddy farker.

I don't know anyone who was in the military who uses "Blue Falcon" when Buddy farker can be used. It's a term I generally see used only in I'm the presence of civilians or wannabes that almost enlisted.

Going to be a task to prove intent to 12 rubes who couldn't escape jury duty. Alternate theories are plentiful, especially if the word gets bandied about. Only "maybe a rifle case" was seen, and the contents are unknown.

1 is not a cache   not even close    If I go camping i usually have a shotgun a long rifle and a sidearm, that's just standard.  Now if they had 2 or 3 dozen weapons, then yeah, that might be considered a cache
 
2021-04-13 7:01:07 PM  
If I was them, I would lie, and say that my intent was to keep the protest peaceful, and that the stash room was a clever plot to trick the dumber rank and file oath keepers into locking their guns in a hotel room outside the city, where they could get them, and that there was no intent on actually ever bringing them inside.  The fact that they haven't already said this, shows that they were serious about bringing the guns to the capital, if they thought it looked like they would be able to hold onto it, or succeeding in capturing congress.

I just picked up a Florida Highway Patrol trade in glock 37 and other than holster rub on the slide a bit the thing is like new, and from others I saw as they were posting pics of what they got this seemed common. I'd venture 75% of cops only go shoot when they are required to as it's "work".
