Officials see rise in militia groups across US

Wow! An ominous headline to say the least. More Oklahoma City's. More militia nuts. More guns.

But what evidence does Eileen Sullivan use to back up the claim??

"Last October, someone from the Ohio Militia posted a recruiting video on YouTube, billed as a "wake-up call" for America. It's been viewed more than 60,000 times."

That's it. Read the piece.

"Bart McEntire, a special agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, told SPLC researchers that this is the most growth he's seen in more than a decade.

"All it's lacking is a spark," McEntire said in the report."


All it needs is a spark.

But in the paragraph prior we read this:

"The stress of a poor economy and a liberal administration led by a black president are among the causes for the recent rise, the report from the Southern Poverty Law Center says. Conspiracy theories about a secret Mexican plan to reclaim the Southwest are also growing amid the public debate about illegal immigration."

But Bart, what more motivation would a poor redneck need to go out and buy a gun that uses 22 caliber (slightly above a pellet gun round) ammunition to wage war on "a black president".

"Things are bad, things are real bad, and it's going to be a lot worse," said the man on the video, who did not give his name. "Our country is in peril."

The man is holding an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle, and he encourages viewers to buy one."

If you militia nuts out there are reading this, forget the .22.

Go for the gusto:

Peace out.
