They aren't talking about white people being resourceful and finding things.  They are talking actual looting.

/thought I should get that out of the way

That's why I forage.

No, you're a gun-humping state.  The 2ndA is just an excuse to act like dickwads.
 
2022-10-01 12:20:17 PM  
If I'm looting with my gun, isn't that also a 2nd amendment solution?
 
2022-10-01 12:52:32 PM  
Well, that didn't take long. DeSantis was sounding reasonable and almost normal.

That's why you loot your own shiat then claim it with insurance.

Are we talking about "looting" or about "gathering supplies"?

If you are collecting food to make a potato salad with raisons, that's gathering.  If you are making fried okra and cornbread, that's probably looting.

Is the punishment for larceny death in FL courts?

Why is it in the streets?

This is true for the entire United States.

The 2nd Amendment, whatever it once was and whatever it was intended to do, is no longer valid. It's been invalid ever since we implemented our own military.

All states are Second Amendment states. The federal government has passed no laws restricting their ability to raise and maintain state militia, per the Second Amendment.

People wouldn't loot houses or rob anyone else if they lived in a society that cared for their needs.

Just food for thought.\

No, it's still very much valid. It does what it's supposed to do. It prevents the federal government from passing laws that infringe on the rights of a state to raise and maintain militia.

You don't even need "larceny"- Wearing a hoodie and carrying skittles and an ice tea (that were paid for) is sufficient.

Its a dogwhistle. He's not talking about white Floridians -- but he sure is talking to them.

It references a racist Miami Sheriff's racist comments from the 60s - Trump referenced it in 2020, as well:

"When the looting starts, the shooting starts"

Also, FWIW, we "implemented our own military" before 2A was ratified.

Which part is the funny part?

That's how 2A was written and what it was intended to do, and it still does that. It also now does a bunch of extraneous stuff that it shouldn't do, thanks to hundreds of millions of NRA dollars and Scalia, but the original function still exists.

The stupid it...well it's kind of a choice at this point. Anyone who didn't want to be shot for trying to feed themselves on scavenged canned goods shoulda moved north by now. No mercy, no sympathy, shoot them because they chose to be shot at, when they chose to spend money on police instead of climate mitigation.

The Japanese don't loot during floods, typhoons, tsnamis, or earthquakes. You don't see much beyond your XBox, do you?

Is there anything left on those islands worth stealing anyhow?

How much does a waterlogged hoveround go for these days?

So what he's basically saying is that looters should shot 1st.

Try taking your property back from a looter, see how much they value your life.

Let's say your neighborhood is totally flooded. You've been without food or water for about a day already. You know the nearest grocery store is about 2 miles away, and it looks flooded from where you are all the way there. Your stuff is already used up. But your neighbor's home is vacant, as they left before Ian hit, and now, it's completely destroyed by the flood. So why not go in, see what's still around in the fridge, at least for some food and water type stuff? What are you going to do, swim 2 miles to the grocery store that might already have been picked clean?

Try saying, "Eh, have it," and let that property go.

DeSantis is looting taxpayers with his human trafficking stunts. 2Aers where you at?

Wait ... that's a controversial policy?
