There absolutely were people that were armed. Christopher Albert was one such person.
Outcome?

Hey remember when you called Dr VanNostrand a liar and said there were zero people that were armed there? Turns out you were wrong and acted pretty shitty based on a Facebook meme or something. Why don’t you acknowledge that?
Because you offered something that didn't state what you claimed it does. That's why.

Sorry you are having trouble reading. Let me quote the part where they say he was armed, what type of firearm it was, the serial number, the number of rounds he had and that there was one in the chamber:

Quote
At that point, I told two MPD officers next to him that ALBERTS had a firearm on his person. ALBERTS, apparently hearing that, immediately tried to flee, but I was able to detain him with the help of two other officers. A black Taurus G2C 9mm (Serial#AAL085515) was recovered from D-1’s right hip. Additionally, a separate magazine was located on D-1’s left hip. Both the gun and the spare magazine were in held in two separate holsters. The handgun had one round in the chamber with a twelve round capacity magazine filled with twelve rounds; the spare magazine also had a twelve round capacity and was filled with twelve rounds.

Now I eagerly await an admission that:
How many people at the US Capitol were armed?

Answer -0

Was incorrect. Also that:

You're just weak liar.

Was completely unwarranted since you were attacking him based on your ignorance.

EDIT: At least 4 were charged with firearms violations in connection with the event.

Fuck that. That piece of human shit, Trump, was going to send federal troops to my town to protect a Target store from protesters marching against a corrupt police force that has brutalized the people of this city for over a half century. They weren't armed either.

Every rioter in that photo is a traitor to this nation. The Republicans supporting Putin's agenda who opened the doors for these traitors are traitors. Fuck each and every one of those 'short bus retards' (their lawyer's words, not mine.)

  Seems like sour grapes.

It's pissed off grapes. I owned guns when I was 17. The idea that my mom and dad would let me take one of my rifles and go into the streets at night is incomprehensible. This little fuck head's parents are the real problem. So fuck them too.
Sour grapes from an ineffectual troll who has no point.

Rittenhouse killed two known shitbags and his trial ended in a just verdict.

His parents are a far sight better than most.

I completely agree on the need to get this back on track. I thought we'd got to an interesting place, particularly with WTF's point on the sun - https://forum.tfes.org/index.php?topic=18734.msg251176#msg251176.

I'd be interested to hear Tom or Pete's views on this.

For example, if you consider 12 noon UTC on an equinox (I used next September and timeanddate.com), then we would expect the sun to be directly overhead the point shown by the red cross on this monopole FE map:



The circle is 45 degrees latitude radius - so from the discussion and wiki regarding EA, we would expect all points on the circumference of that circle to observe the sun at 45 degrees elevation at 1200 UTC, and in the direction of the centre of the circle. This is true for the point, for example, at 45N 0W - the sun is indeed around 45 degrees elevation at that time, due south. But it falls apart if you stray from that point. If you go to the point in Africa marked by the green arrow, for example, the sun is at an elevation of around 60 degrees at 1200 UTC, not 45. So the sun isn't where it should be according to EA.

If you extend the circle to 90 degrees radius it gets even worse, because one would expect from EA that nighttime would be the area outside of the circle. But it isn't like that at all - all of South America, for example, should be in daylight, and yet the 90 degree circle excludes half of it.

Thoughts? Tom? Pete?

I've always believed that idea of an armed citizenry defending liberty from our federal government was an absolutely delusional redneck fantasy. I need the federal government to have resources and weaponry to defend us from powerful nation states all over the world. I want a government that can defend us from extremist terror groups with technology and intelligence.

Our government is not going to fall to a bunch of bumpkins with hand guns and hunting rifles!

What alot of this year has shown is just how much America is like Trump:
Fragile, easy to anger, arrogant.

America was essentially grinded to a halt by a thousand, mostly unarmed, protesters.
America's healthcare system is wobbling due to a pandemic with only a 1% mortality rate.
Its press is untrusted by a large amount of Americans.
And people argue violently about getting a life saving vaccine because some person on the internet said it would kill them and they should take horse dewormer instead.

If China wants to destroy America, it wouldn't take much effort.
