And your little dog, too
We have evolved (or devolved) to a very dangerous situation with militarized police dressed up as SWAT conducting violent and deadly raids in situations which clearly do not warrant such direct action. Massive LE and Federal over-reach.
Reading the article linked above, you will see the point I am making about not fighting this in your own home, surrounded by your children and family pets. However badly done, these raids still carry a hint of legality: they have a warrant, however poor the choice of method is. That is why I advocate in our current situation that you behave calmly and allow them to do what they are going to do, because the danger to yourself, your family and your pets is far too great if you resist. You are also not in a good position to do so, unless you knew the raid was coming.
For those that will accuse me of cowardice, I refute that. I am simply calling for the most appropriate survival response. 0300hrs in your foyer dressed in pajamas clutching a hastily grabbed shotgun or AR, surrounded by your sleeping family, is not the way to go about it. When the day comes that these raids are something different, something definitely unlawful, then is the time when you will have no choice but to resist in self-defense of yourself and your family. But when that days comes you better not be asleep in your warm bed. That is why I bang on about setting the conditions.
That night is when you need team, a watch, defensive positions, a response plan, sectors of fire, a bug out route etc. In the day of unlawful thug raids, that is how your respond if they even find you at all. If they hit you and you defeat them, then you need to move or you will be fixed in position when they call for more assets, and you will be destroyed in place.
