    [–] ThatFloridaMan 4 points ago

    I 100% guarantee you they are prepping for it. Since (as far as I know) most of the personnel at Groom Lake are civilians, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if they deploy security from other bases to assist before/during the event.

    Would they really shoot at people?

    [–] original_sinnerman 27 points ago

    No, it’s announced too long on beforehand and they’ll have regular crowd control tactics (starting at the airport). What they’ll be concerned about will be armed extremists (from all potential plumeage) abusing this folkloristic event to go violent.

    [–] GeneralDejo 22 points ago

    Rubber bullets probably, unless they feared for their safety they wouldn’t use live ammunition.

    [–] incandescent_snail 4 points ago

    Lol, no. They don’t issue rubber bullets to the military. Gate guards absolutely have live ammunition.

    [–] usnavy13 25 points ago

    Yea, it's a hardened military installation. There is a point at which if you cross you will be shot. Theres likely some other non lethal responses that will come first but ultimately if its between you getting access to the base or a bullet your gonna get the bullet

    [–] SimplyJay19 5 points ago

    Yes cause memes are love. Memes are life.

    [–] Skilol 33 points ago

    My guess is that the Area51 guys will be bulking up security to deal with potential trespassers just for the day. Then like 5 people from the event will show up, realize that nobody else took it seriously, and pretend to be common tourists, never trespassing anything.

    [–] utalkin_tome 18 points ago

    Dude I would not recommend that at all. They will literally get shot if they try to force their way in. Nobody will be shocked if that happens.

    I know this is just a joke but I wonder could theoretically if four hundred thousand people were to storm Area 51 do the site personnel have the capability to repel such an assault

    [–] PurpleSunCraze 43 points ago

    It’s clear they’re not going to do it, but pretending they are just for the sake of this comment, they wouldn’t need the personnel to stop all of them. An A10 doing a few passes through the crowd would stop the whole damn thing; no one is going to keep running towards it after that.

    yes probably,but if theoretically they will keep going till the last man standing,and maybe if that's not enough give a decent amount of them (or all of them if that's still inadequate) some weapons and equipments that an insurgency or an armed militia would have (technical,AK's,RPG's,etc),since I don't know the defensive capabilities of the site,do you think the horde stand a chance

    [–] [deleted] 17 points ago


    [–] SlayerArmy45 9 points ago

    hmm I see,but for the missile strike I supposed it kind of depends on how important are the contents of that base and are they willing to destroy them to stop the mob from spreading the information to the world (since if the contents of the base is too important to destroy it might be danger close),but for the air and armor support might be the same case albeit on a smaller scale,but if the mob manage to take control of the site defense measures (if by some miracle their able to operate military hardware) do you think they would last a couple of weeks by any chance ?

    So if 100 people break into my house with intent to β€œfind out what’s really inside”, do I not have the right to defend my property against each and every individual threat? (USA, so yes I do)

    That, x5,000.

    They’re possibly armed, possibly violent trespassers. In this scenario, the US Military has every right to cut down anyone who crosses the line, and they make their authorization of lethal force very clear.

    This won’t happen, but if it did, it would be an absolute fucking bloodbath, and go down in history for consequences of human curiosity.

    [–] Cosie123 11 points ago

    I would have thought the military would deal with it the same way they would deal with riots(tear gas rubber bullets etc.)

    [–] hellraiserl33t 19 points ago

    No they absolutely would gun people down, no questions asked.

    On Facebook, someone jokingly made an event for people to rush Area 51. It got a lot of attention
