Armed ‘patriot’ accidentally shoots self in leg at Gettysburg battlefield
http://s.pennlive.com/GdjGcUE

GETTYSBURG–A patriot who brought a revolver to Gettysburg National Military Park Saturday amid rumors of desecration of memorials accidentally shot himself in the leg Saturday.

The man in his 20s accidentally triggered the revolver, which was inside a leg holster, when he temporarily rested the bottom of his flag pole against the holster, according to witnesses.
Park police were nearby when the shooting occurred and officers quickly applied a tourniquet that may have saved the man’s life, said Sgt. Anna Rose, a spokeswoman with the U.S. Park Police.

A tourniquet type device covered the wound on the man’s left thigh as he was loaded into an ambulance. He talked with paramedics and seemed in good spirits.

The gun then went off a second time about 1 p.m. when police were trying to unload the weapon. The gun was pointed at the ground in a field north of Meade’s Headquarters along the west side of Taneytown Road. A PennLive reporter witnessed the second shot, which occurred as visitors to the park milled nearby.

Officers said the gun was “bad” and they had a hard time getting the rounds out of the chamber. After they forced all of the rounds out of the revolver, they secured the gun.

Other patriots nearby said they had just talked to the man who was injured and that he came by himself to the park. He was not part of any specific group, but was just there as a patriot, they said.

Dozens of self-described Patriots came to the park about noon Saturday after hearing rumors that Antifa protesters might crash the park’s events and try to desecrate memorials. Members of Antifa caused a ruckus in Harrisburg recently at an Anti-Sharia rally and one member was arrested for swinging a wooden pole with a nail attached at a police horse.

The rumors on Saturday appeared to be just that: rumors, as no Antifa members were seen at Gettysburg park Saturday.

Instead, there were dozens of men in camouflage outfits, some carrying long rifles or handguns or both, milling about the park holding large American flags. They walked outside of the perimeter of the fenced-in “official” demonstration areas, which were nearly empty all day.

A handful of members from the Real 3 % Risen group sat in one fenced area wearing Confederate flag hats and t-shirts while a lone man with a sign aligning the Confederate flag with slavery and racism sat alone in another fenced area.

The only way to kill this beast – is to starve it to death. Stop all charitable giving (this includes useless family that should be doing for themselves), pay as little in taxes as you can, vote against increased benefits or taxes – no matter how deserving, and don’t spend or keep a dime in the system that you don’t have to.

‘Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.’ Put any savings in tangibles that cannot be traced! Your are either part of the solution or you are part of the problem. Self Reliance and Barter should be your highest priorities and is their greatest fear! When the system collapses and it will, their priorities will change in a hurry! Will you be ready? Swamp

Develop a personal scorched earth policy to avoid aiding the enemies!

A military strategy of burning or destroying buildings, crops, or other resources that might be of use to an invading enemy force.

I figured it was just a matter of time before it was going to be an issue for Gettysburg, with all the Confederate monuments there This is crazy! Makes my stomach churn to see this crap happening across the country. History is history. It’s what birthed this nation. I need an island or a hillside somewhere away from humanity. -k

Why O Why do we never get anything like this in SoCal?

You’d think with the Organic masses buying here that something with the title Mother Earth would have a MASSIVE turn out here….

Anyone know of anything WORTH WHILE going to covering the subjects mentioned in the OP that ever gets to SoCal?

The election is over Trump won but i am still having to listen to the snowflakes here . It is quite simple for me to shut them up when i ask them to speak of facts no lies aka the spin .
I was in town picking up feed and a young man was telling his boss he just could not work the day shift because it was just to early for him to get up and come into to work . Sorry but i went off like a wet setting hen . I informed him he has a job some people don’t , if you don’t like your job quit today and i know there are several people that would be happy to have your job . If you worked for me you would be out the door right now and you can go to your safe place and cry buttercup . You want to work but you don’t want to work you can’t have it both ways , this is life you work for a living that is just a fact . The manger who i have know for years walked with me to my truck and told me thanks for my little speech , an older black man stopped and said i sure told it like it is the young people today just don’t know what hard work is all about they want a check but just don’t want to work for it .

Gee, swamp. In your profession, you could make anyone say ouch if ya wanted to ( or just scream in agony) Lol.
I don’t like winter and I don’t like snowflakes. But, you put enough snowflakes together and they get outta control? You got a frigging avalanche.
I kinda prefer the old fashion term for ‘those people’. Starts with p and ends with y. You don’t have to say “oops”. Not that I would. Suck it up, Buttercup.
I think I will share that video.

The Mother Earth News Fairs are great. I went to the very first one they ever had, there at Seven Springs (that was when we lived in PA…it was only about a half hour from where we lived. They are DEFINITELY worth going to…get tickets for the entire weekend, as there is WAY too much to absorb and more classes than you can cover in just one day.

Maybe we can get a spoof song by Fender Before the next teardrop fall .

Ajax, I called our country station yesterday afternoon, I heard them play it 14 times, tears in my eyes and a smile on my face.

They received many calls and aired the calls, people love it. It played about a dozen times today so far and more calls to the station requesting for them to keep playing it.

The snowflakes don’t want to come around here, they’ll be leaving with a few black eyes from us deplorable, bible reading, gun toting hillbilly’s.

Didn’t know where to put this so I put it here:

There’s a new song out by Chad Prather and Steve “Mudflap” McGrew called “friends in safe places”, it follows the music of Garth Brooks’ song “friends in low places”.

I tried to copy the video of the song to here but won’t let me do it. You got to google this song and lisen to it, it’s great, I rolled around on the ground with tears in my eyes. The wife thought I was taking a fit.

You got to hear it.
