    Great title, entertaining vid. As for the “most LEO’s are NRA members, and will stand shoulder to shoulder gun owners” statements everyone is making, NONSENSE. Law enforcement is made up of all kinds of folks, some lib some cons. Some good some bad, just like everybody else. Some will stand on the side of freedom some will fall in line and follow orders.
    Nowhere in the video do they call the man just law enforcement. The gist of the vid is that the man is whoever is coming to take your freedom away, could be a thug, could be a cop, could be the UN, the US Army, a pack of rabid hippies, biker gang, a ornery bear, could be an 9 year old Islamofacist, could be your neighbor, your uncle, or even some drunk redneck that you thought was OK because he sported realtree and drove a pickup. We really dont ever know.

    As for the gun selections, probably a bit fanciful for many folks, but some awesome stuff no doubt. Master what ya got as best you can, and be ready to take the “mans” gun if need be.

    “The man could be anybody”…what part of that did some of you fail to understand? Yet, you ramble on talking about LEA as being the man and how your feelings are hurt. Please feel free to fill out a “Hurt Feelings Report” (HFR) poor babies..

  • Common sense January 1, 2015, 7:22 pm

    Ya’ll are idiots! If you don’t like something on website don’t look at it! No one has to take anything down! Freedom of speech dumbasses!

  • Bill Richardson January 1, 2015, 7:16 pm

    Has anyone seen the videos regarding the confiscation of firearms after Katrina? It’s called martial law. Governors have the authority to institute this law in times of crisis. The local LEOs are backed up by state militia when they come “a knockin’.” I doubt that many people are going to resist. Its worth a Google!

    • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 11:01 am

      Speaking of the law upholding our/their Constitution? Pure bull$hit- in New York, Gov. Cuomo passed the “Safe Act”, literally in a middle of the night law making session; the most restrictive gun laws anywhere in the nation. It clearly violates the Constitution in multiple ways regarding registration, confiscation and even medical privacy of information{HIPAA} laws. And, he has decided his henchman, his jackbooted thugs- to be the NY State Police. Besides the fact that their paycheck/job/supporting their families depends on it- they are gladly following orders to enforce his unconstitutional laws.

      • Bill Richardson January 2, 2015, 1:06 pm

        I’m not sure how your post is relevant to mine. However, I do agree with you that Cuomo’s actions, as you have described them, are unconstitutional. I was referring to the testosterone filled posts here. The person that says, “They’ll have to pry my weapon from my cold dead hands,” is probably going to be the first one to wet himself when three or four M4’s are pointed at his head. It is not just local LEOS’s that will be confiscating weapons in the event of a declaration of a state of emergency, it will be the national guard backing them up. Each state has written into it’s own post 911 “homeland security and disaster act’s,” its own form of martial law that suspends civil liberties and allows law enforcement and, more importantly, state militia to govern as they see fit (This is how they get around the strict rules governing the declaration of martial law). This includes confiscation of weapons for the purpose of curtailing violence thus keeping the citizenry safe. I say that it is unconstitutional and unlawful, but they didn’t consult me before implementing the laws.

        • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 5:58 pm

          Hey Bill, I must have clicked “reply” below your post by mistake. I was actually replying to those posters who implied law enforcement would stand by the Constitution when it came down to it, but- as in the case of Katrina, law enforcement sure proved that wrong. Thousands of law enforsement officers from all over the country, thanks to EMAC, underwritten by FEMA, were brought in to add to the debacle. The outsiders had no relationship with the locals, making it easy for them to be detached from and have no empathy for their plight. They did their job as ordered, “and then some”.. They really went for the gusto. Watch the YouTube video of the jackbooted thugs breaking into the old lady’s house and roughing the shit out of her, knocking her down and injuring her, all in the name of making the city “safer”. Those images remain forever burned in my brain, and I will never trust law enforcement again.

  • Mike January 1, 2015, 7:06 pm

    I agree with most of the reviews on here!
    Re-Name it or remove it…. All the guns and some info is ok,,,,
    Show us you know how to fix your stupid, not grown up mistakes.
    This as I agree with others make good intelligent gun supporters not look good.

    • zknight2 January 1, 2015, 9:17 pm

      Please feel free to fill out a Hurt Feelings Report (HFR) By the way this is America if you don’t like it keep moving on.

  • David January 1, 2015, 6:20 pm

    As am Oath keeping police officer, I find this video absolutely ridiculous and inflammatory. It really needs to be removed.

    • zknight2 January 1, 2015, 9:22 pm

      Thanks for being an Oath Keeper. Sorry if your feelings are hurt. Do you see yourself as “The Man”? Get over it, The man could be anyone or anything. ie..a corporation.

  • deputy dawg January 1, 2015, 5:26 pm

    Your all on the wrong page…Law Enforcement personnel are for enforcement of laws. They are not only sworn to enforce laws, they are also sworn to up hold the constitution, of which the federal government does not abide by…90% of p.p.s want peace and order. Walk the walk before you talk the talk….most police officers are NRA members and believe in the constitution. The current people in the white house are the ones you should be concerned about…..

  • Fabulous Phil January 1, 2015, 3:37 pm

    Title should have been “When the SHTF”. “the man” as everyone knows is “the law”. But if the SHTF ever comes to your door, it most likely won’t be your Sheriff’s Deputies, State Troopers. and local men & women in blue. Besides. most of them have secretly subscribed to ‘Oath-Keepers’ promise. It’ll likely be some Federal government wonk acting on the unlawful orders of some Federal bureaucrat that’s making rules and regulations without the lawful requirement of Federal legislation. In which case, they are ill equipped and trained and poorly lead and are potential vacancies in their agency.
    Retired from both Law Enforcement and from the US Military, and like most patriotic and true blue Americans, I swore to uphold the constitution and the laws of the US, not some politician or bureaucrat. My allegiance is and always has been to the people of the US. All politicians and bureaucrats are but temporary occupants of the chair they sit in. Evil doers and criminals get whatever they deserve. You must remember, “The only reason some people are alive is because it’s against the law to kill them”. Go in Peace, my brother.

  • Desert Eagle 1 January 1, 2015, 12:49 pm

    For all you idiots that subscribe to this type of mindset!
    Next time you are in serious trouble and need help!
    Call a Thug!

    • don't need help January 1, 2015, 1:10 pm

      I would rather not have the cops come in to clean up the mess after the situation is already over to begin with. Then after dealing with the ” Trouble ” as you put it, have a bunch of guys in costumes with shiny pieces of metal see who they can extort money from . nah, I’ll just take care of myself.

      • Gabe January 1, 2015, 7:08 pm

        You are full of shit.

        • Jack January 1, 2015, 9:39 pm

          Gabe, keep your naive and profane comments to yourself. Only the weak like you need others to protect you. I’m sure you find it comforting to know your caped Heros in blue are three digits away when your wife abuses you.

          • Willyj January 21, 2015, 8:20 am

            you should realize that while Gabe may be naive and even foolish he is not profane but vulgar.

          • Dan November 8, 2015, 5:05 pm

            CORRECT! When seconds count, police are only minutes away. Then the question is, can the police determine who’s the bad guy? Who’s the perp?
            So, when there are multiple assailants, what do you grab and maintain fire superiority? The objective is “never be outgunned”.
            When it comes to: put a round into all of them a let GOD sort them out, that’s where this vid plays out.

    • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 9:04 am

      When the thugs are breaking down your door, the law is only a phone call and 15 minutes away. They will be there to take notes when it”s all over..

  • Michael McNamara January 1, 2015, 12:48 pm

    Some of the commenters here don’t need to buy a gun. They need to find a sense of humor and common sense. Geesh…

  • Bill Wallen January 1, 2015, 12:04 pm

    You should have your butt kicked for naming this the way you have,

  • Dan/Missouri January 1, 2015, 11:49 am

    I’m a Electronics Designer/Engineer, and I don’t need a fire arm to do in what ever people the government send to my door. I can take out more of them with Electronics than you can with a mini chain gun and it is absolutely quiet. This is the same weapon the man will use if they encounter armed resistance from a structure. They aren’t going to use firearms to pacify the situation. Where do you think my home defense idea came from. Besides, if you suspect the man will be at your door soon, your home is the last place you want a fire fight, ambush them before they get there. Always hit them where and when they least expect it.

  • Ken Wilkinson January 1, 2015, 10:45 am

    Take this down or rename it.
    Maybe I made a mistake in viewing this site.
    The man is or has been, Me, My Son, My Friends and your loyal LEO’s.

    • Jim January 1, 2015, 12:22 pm

      I’m with you brother.

      • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 9:02 am

        Yeah, in the name of the First Amendment, I think you’d best move on if you don’t like what you’re watching or reading..

    • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 8:59 am

      The “man” is finally getting the squeeze put on him/her just like he’s been doing to citizens for way to many years.

    • Ryan January 2, 2015, 2:18 pm

      Because that’s how things have been as of lately. I fully support the name of this video, and anyone who thinks law enforcement agencies don’t need to be fixed, are living in the dark.

  • John in SoCal December 9, 2014, 1:12 am

    Sounds like Johnny Cash

    • mtman2 December 10, 2014, 11:17 pm

      Johnny Cash loved to shoot guns ~!

  • grifhunter December 8, 2014, 1:49 pm

    Inflammatory title- video should be taken down.
    Its been decades of common parlance that “the man” means law enforcement.
    SMH how often gun folk are their own worst enemy.

    • mtman2 December 10, 2014, 11:18 pm

      KIDS ~!

    • Chip Saunders January 1, 2015, 5:40 am

      What? You don’t think da gubamint is gonna use cops to do the door-kicking? Don’t be an idiot.

      • Larry January 1, 2015, 11:09 am

        I’m sure the vast majority of cops still respect the oath they took to defend the US Constitution & not violate the law under a dictate from a lawless President, on down. I expect many more of them to be standing shoulder to shoulder with the lawful Americans defending their country from destruction.

        • Vince January 1, 2015, 1:40 pm

          Don’t hold your breath, brother. Police are not hired to defend the constitution. They are to enforce the law, whatever the community says it is. Elected Sheriffs are perhaps the only agency that may follow your assertions. Police, however are under no such order; neither do many subscribe to that.
          We have all recently witnessed what resistance to police officers, armed or not, can lead to. That is only the tip of the iceberg. Let us watch what plays out in Connecticut first. Otherwise, when the “man”, comes knocking, greeting them with a drawn rifle is a sure bet on suicide. Making enemies of the man should not be high on anyone’s priority list. Especially not in the more liberal states.

          • BRASS January 1, 2015, 4:40 pm

            As in Katrina and New Orleans.
            Few paid attention to the constitution during that disaster.

        • John January 1, 2015, 8:22 pm

          Learn from history. It is always law enforcement that does the dirty work. First there is a slow process of destroying the constitution. Then the process of militarizing law enforcement. Then generating an “us vs them” attitude in both law enforcement and civilians. Then law enforcement is ordered to do more and more encroachment on constitutional rights by new laws that undermine the population. Then it becomes easier and easier for law enforcement to become SS troops.
          It isn’t a decision, it is a process, and it has already started.

        • John January 1, 2015, 8:36 pm

          One of the things gun owners and law enforcement can do right now is to fight this “us vs them” attitude that the media hype is creating.

          • FirstNation January 2, 2015, 8:55 am

            hype? dream on dude, it’s real.

  • Joe Loiselle December 8, 2014, 10:42 am

    Right out on the very start you violate one of the most important rules: “don’t point a weapon at anything you don’t want to kill, destroy, or buy.
