Ruby Ridge was murders committed by Federal agents and sanctioned by the U.S. government. Not the other way around.
Please contemplate what it means for a group of citizens to refuse to obey the duly enacted laws of their country, and refuse to be taken into custody to be penalized for breaking those laws, with the use of firearms as defense against law enforcement efforts to enforce the law.
I'm not condoning the specific acts of the law enforcment agenices that acted at Ruby Ridge or at Waco, but it was the lawlessness and threats of violence on the parts of those conservative small-government groups which directly resulted in the fruition of the forseeable consequences of their own actions.
That is exactly how you would expect militant non-conforming anti-government types to act. For the record, I can envision scenarios under tyrranical government control, in extreme circumstances, when I would also be considered an armed, militant, non-conforming anti-government type.
The point is that violence has occurred as a direct result of the hardened opinions and actions of "limited government conservative types".
