No one is saying the Biden folks didn't feel threated, but that doesn't mean anything illegal or even unethical was done.  It's a Biden Campaign bus, with a complaint from them I definitely think the FBI should at least investigate.   

At 18 a few buddies of mine and I drove to Florida.  We stopped for gas in Georgia and it was just a lone gas station off an exit.  Looked like an old shack that was converted into a gas station, hound dog laying on the porch of the business as well.  Parked off to the side was a pickup with 3-4 shotguns mounted on the rear of the cab.  I grew up in a family of hunters, guns don't scare me, but I wasn't used to seeing them out in the open like that.  The guy was nice to us and I even remember he had a NASCAR race on which I commented on and he made a joke response about how he didn't know yankees liked racing.  Still, once we drove away, half joking comments were made by us about how we were glad to get out of there alive.

Those jokers in the trucks and with the giant flags really want to be able to execute citizens arrests of the corrupt politicians who try to make them wear masks to prevent the flu.

Funny thing tho, in two weeks these exact same people will all be wearing hunter's orange because "the government said so."

And we could probably presume that some of them have a driver's license in order to drive because the government said so.  And they also drive on the correct side of the road most of the time because the government said so.

******* sheeple.

Just wait until the early returns show Biden winning and the Republicans start whining to count all ballots. 

That will be hilarious.

And there's a good chance of that since I believe some states that count everything early (NC, FL, AZ and GA...?) are swinging to Biden. 

That means Trump's ONLY chance after he loses all those early counting states will be to win all the slower counting states (MI, PA, MN? and WI?).

Should be loads of fun watching the pretzel logic come outta the White House...

When the bride's family does that for a collection of the liquor bill at the end of the wedding you know they have class.

so Trump won in 2016 by something like 100K votes in three states but 30 million more votes will be cast this election. The polls could all be off by miles. But OTOH, the odds remain that most of those new voters are Dems.

I think Trump and his fans will be egging on post-election violence if this is the trend.

I used to spend time in Houston in years past and you'd see shotguns racked in pickup trucks next to you at the gas station every day. I don't know if that has fallen out of favor as Houston has gotten more gentrified, but I haven't heard that they made it illegal either.

There was a time in America when it was conservatives that used to complain that 'ivory tower' academic liberals were irresponsible wrt the social order when they talked about the need to 'overthrow' existing political arrangements. Now we have so-called conservatives literally suborning violence on the street. So turns the World.

My friends in Texas all have truck guns they keep behind the drivers seat for large feral hogs that can be pesky in the rural areas.

Because the Biden campaign complained.  Not all investigations find a crime.

I just don't see this as any different from any of the "Ridin' with Biden" parades and such outside Trump speeches.  They are trolling each other.    This is protected speech.

BTW, when Harris appeared here in the Stop Six area, just south of me, a handful of Trump supporters showed up with signs outside and actually were threatened.    Big yawn from practically everyone, including the Trumpers who just left.

That sums up why Trump was impeached right there.
