  •  What about the 2nd Amendment and the Founders? (0+ / 0-)

    It is plainly obvious that the people are meant to be armed to a level that challenge the government and remove it when absolutely necessary.

    And before all this revisionist nonsense and statism took hold in the 20th century, people understood that.

    Look at Miller v US and John Bad Elk v US. Both are turn of the century/early 20th century US Supreme Court rulings affirming the superiority of the countrymen over the government and the right to keep and bear the weaponry to keep it that way.

    The single issue gun voter has been distilled down to this core group of countrymen that will not be swayed be your cheap parlor tricks or revised language.

      is the idea that the 2nd amendment was intended to arm the citizens against its own government. If that were the intent, why is armed insurrection against the law?

      The NRA and its disciples are falling just short of inciting armed revolt for one reason only, to sell guns and ammo. That is greed over patriotism. Profit over the well-being of citizens.

      Do not feed invasive species.

      but have you seen our military? I don't care how many guns you have, you won't overthrow the government. Just like that dumb talking point I always hear about if the Jews would have had their guns, they wouldn't have been in concentration camps. As if citizens with some hand guns would have defeated the Nazis. Come on, there is no level that normal citizens can be armed to remove the government, unless you got tanks, drones and nuclear weapons. Dumb argument.
