How does America deal with the threat posed by anti-American MAGA terrorists?

Aug. 12 (UPI) -- The armed, body-armored man killed in a shootout with the FBI and police after attempting to breach an FBI field office in Cincinnati on Thursday was a Navy veteran and appeared to be a prolific poster to former President Donald Trump's Truth Social website.

Ohio state police identified the gunman as Ricky W. Shiffer, 42, who had ties to Columbus, Ohio. Shiffer served as a fire control technician in the Navy, according to military service records obtained by The Washington Post.

6. Yep. I guess those guys were figments.

No, the argument is that there are laws on the books that cover everything they're doing. (Like storming the Capital? Really? Like trying to kidnap a Governor to get her out of office? Really?)

I guess hate crime legislation is just a silly whim too.

7. We really don't have sufficient laws to deal with domestic terrorism.

They are protected by the 1st Amendment. The GQP could realistically be designated domestic terrorists.

8. Yes. And, like hate crime designations, domestic terrorism laws would codify the fact that

the underlying philosophy is part of the crime and subject to punishment.

10. We faced down the Bund

and neither left nor right radicals seized total power in the decades since.

Sedition, conspiracy, non-profit, and campaign finance laws need to be revisited and strengthened or broadened.
