  •  I think it IS possible for people to fight back (7+ / 0-)

    in certain circumstances.  Even against a government.

    I just watched this movie called The Stoning of Soraya M., which was based on a journalist's account of actual events.  It takes place in a small village in Iran in the 80s run by three incredibly corrupt and evil men.  Without giving away too much of the plot, they proceed to torture and murder a hapless young woman for fun and profit.  

    The thing is, they are just some pissant village, and the authorities were not really armed too well.  The extent of their power was one gun and a bunch of fists.  If the victim and her family had firearms of any sort, they would have had a good chance to get out.  As it was, they were just victims.  

    Anyway, I love this

    I think the first line of defense is the 1st Amendment; but its always good to have a fall-back position.
