Cogent questions. I doubt that any movement of their sort can exist without a single leader. Put simply: no fascism without a Duce.

Given the scattered and undisciplined nature of the violent right in the USA, a large, coordinated rising is surely impossible. The brutes would fall to fighting more among themselves than against the overwhelming force of the Federal government.

But if somebody yearns for a wittle gun of his own, yeah, let him run out and buy one. Then he can try to buy ammo for it. A second mortgage might be necessary. Not I disapprove one damn bit.
