Leftists need to get armed, organized, and engage in community defense. I’m a member of Socialist Rifle Association and would recommend joining. As it stands, the police and the fascists have most of the guns, and have proven they will work together to kill us even if we are unarmed. During the 1960s, the Black Panther Party was often able to deescalate situations by being well armed, trained, and knowledgeable about their rights. Just something to consider.
