Apparently some people want to make it a class 5 felony to protect your own backyard. Supposedly this law was designed to go after minutemen (who patrol to prevent illegal aliens) but it’s broad enough to impact ones own national and private backyard.
A. An individual or group of individuals commits domestic terrorism if the individual or group of individuals are not affiliated with a local, state or federal law enforcement entity and associate with another individual or group of individuals as an organization, group, corporation or company for the purpose of patrolling to detect alleged illegal activity or to individually patrol for the purpose of detecting alleged illegal activity and if the individual or group of individuals is armed with a firearm or other weapon.
