A few legal questions about this "Civil War" that the whacko right claims to want.

First, I think they're all just running their mouths with all this "Civil War" talk, but I suppose some of them actually
take it seriously.

Here are my questions. Let's say a few bands of these RWNJs take up arms against Americans, and the US government, and start shooting it up. Are they suddenly considered "Enemy Combatants", or merely violent criminals? Would any "declaration of war" against the US, and its' people, have any sort of teeth, like a declaration of war from another nation? Would these "enemy combatants" suddenly lose their US citizenship and rights? Would it be legal for American civilians to engage them in defense of the US, without fear of legal consequences?

LOL ! Borrowed from elsewhere, but I sure wish I had said it.

Aside from the stupidity and racism part, I'm 100% in the "Trump Fan Demographic".

Lifelong Blue Collar worker.

61 years old. White. Male.

Formerly urban, now suburban (biggest mistake I ever made, but I digress.)

I am eternally grateful for being an anomaly.

There is an awful lot of desperation to keep Trump in the WH.

Aside from the obvious power loss for the GOP, there is possibly much more at stake.

I believe that a lot of people will fall without the Trump administration to protect against investigations.

I believe that a lot of scandals will drop soon after Trump's removal from office.
