article just came on-line about hate groups. They are lumping
citizens that believe in gun rights with hate groups now….

"Some 20 states are considering laws that would nullify any national gun control," he said. "About 500 sheriffs, mainly in the western United States, are saying they will not implement any federal gun control measure," Potok said.

"What these states and these sheriffs are proposing is unconstitutional. It is not legal. If the federal government passes gun control laws, they must be obeyed."

There could be 200,000 to 300,000 people involved in hate groups today, Potok believes, as well as 300,000 to 400,000 in militia groups or "sovereign citizen" movements.
