  •  That is not why there is a 2nd amendment (6+ / 0-)

    The 2nd amendment moved the responsibility of arming local militias from the Federal government and gave the responsibility to local municipalities. That's it. The Constitution also makes it quite clear that those militias are subservient to the Federal government. The idea that the 2nd amendment was created to allow people to fight the Federal government is just more right wing nonsense.

    Calling Obama a leader is like calling Charlie Sheen a feminist.
