  •  She has the ability to break the law (5+ / 0-)

    by taking up arms against a police man or engaging in armed insurrection against the government, but those actions are illegal and the Supreme Court has made clear that that the laws prohibiting those actions are Constitutional.

    She has no legal right under the Constitution to do these things. This is not a matter of opinion or for debate. There are well established cases going back over a hundred years making this clear.

    She need only read Scalia's opinion in the Heller case, which found an individual right in the 2nd Amendment, to know that even he, the most conservative Justice, does not believe the right to bear arms is unlimited. He clearly states that it is subject to proper regulation.

    But beyond that she is advocating the "right" to break the law. You have the ability to do that, but by law you certainly don't have the right.

    Further, affiant sayeth not.
