Yeah, but that was then and this is now and the times have changed and the Constitution needs to be rewritten and we have better weapons and they didn't know about them then and should we have tanks and the gov. is the enemy? Really? Evolve already! The rest of the world bans them! Our guns are responsible for killing animals in Africa! What do you fear? Call a cop! It never happens!(even though it happens everyday)
Just a brief list in opposition to your great post.
Here is a thought. If guns are so useless in overthrowing governments, why have we provided so many of them to "insurgents/freedom fighters" around the world? As we move towards the endgame of Socialism, the powers that be are becoming more shrill in removing them from our populace. At some point the jig will be up and you will have to make a decision. Why do some think we cannot become Syria? We are that special? They have bribed over 50% of the population now and are promoting class warfare to pit middle class whites against all others. The poorer whites are told that the rich are keeping them from utopia. What do you think it sounds like to under privileged people to hear the news report that business's in the US are setting on Trillions of dollars in cash and they won't spend or invest it to help the economy? How hard is it for the current pied piper to cast this in a negative light for business owners and vilify them to his base?
We have moved away from the values and ethics that made us great, and we started down this path over 100 years ago.
