Think you are seeing things, like black helicopters? Well, you’re not!
The US has gone from 3,000 SWAT raids a year in the early 1980s to about 50,000 today. Talk about getting your money’s worth, even after adjusting for inflation!
The increase is due in part to the idiotic and dangerous “practical joke” of SWATTing – calling in a false report of an armed violent crime being committed by another. SWATTing is being use by Liberal gun-control advocates, as they call SWAT on lawful gun owners in hopes of having an open-carry (legal) gun owner shot or perhaps a police officer shot.
Robert Dickens from Virginia, exercises his right to open-carry. The anti-gun repeat offender SWATter called 911 claiming Robert was robbing a 7-11 at gunpoint. Police tracked down Robert on his motorcycle by police, but fortunately it did not take long for the police to realize the whole thing was a set-up.
Many SWAT events have resulted in many innocents being injured, with two fatally so.
SWATTing first started with moronic gamers who wanted a little real-life revenge. Besides calling in false reports themselves, gamers have also been known to hijack their “friends” social media accounts and refuse to surrender control unless the victim calls SWAT on themselves.

SWATTing has quickly evolved into a favored tactic gun control supporters, such as progressive radio show host Mike Malloy and the supporters of Moms Demand Action.
Moms Demand Action supporters regularly call for SWATting to be used as a tactic against lawful open carriers on the Moms Demand Action Facebook page, as we have documented numerous times in the past. Gun control supporters are very clear that it is their hope that open carriers are injured or killed by police officers responding to their calls.”
