A bit more on Antifa calling to disarm “fascists” – not such a hot idea

My post about Antifa calling for its adherents to disarm “fascists” (who are merely exercising their Second Amendment Rights while Antifa is, well, acting like real fascists in denying speech and other rights and bullying everyone else) caught some attention.
