“put into place to guarantee the rights of the individual to be equally armed as military, both foreign and domestic, in the event that the citizenry might actually, at some point, have to fight their own government,”
So, we need to start facing facts that such “arms” include tanks, ships, fighter jets and the like. Even thousands of us armed with the best MIL-style autos are just going to get creamed by a few bombers overhead. Our little handguns aren’t going to cut it.
Perhaps, if we were to make the mistake of gathering in one convenient spot for the bombers to hit. But there’s no reason we would have to do that.
If we ever reach the terrible state where American bombers are creaming American cities, I don’t think we’ll be worrying about whether it’s “legal” to have heavy weapons, anyway. We’ll be way past debating the meaning of the Second Amendment.
Sort of like that scene in JAWS,,,
‘WE ARE GOING TO NEED A BIGGER BOAT!’
Au contraire. Fighting against an armed, indigenous insurgency is a challenge for any military however well armed. Unless the government is willing to carpet bomb our cities, they will have a hard time using such weaponry. Or finding enough fellow Americans to carry out such a strategy.
Those who freed us decided it was better if we didn't march in condensed, neat rows, but spread out instead. Millions spread out over 50 States (49 if you discount Hawaii as not strategically helpful) would be pretty darn tough to wipe out.
You forget that the largest potential armed fighting force in the world is the standard American citizen who is ALREADY armed and has the ability to fight with rifles and pistols.
From a .22 to anything larger, the arsenal is already at the home of everyone who hunts, collects guns, uses them for target practice and protection. In addition to that, most have 2 or more available for unarmed citizens to use to protect their freedoms in case the need arises.
A mobilized citizenry can swarm over the government in an instant...and that means the military machine as well.
However, the government has deployed a secret weapon to control the people. It’s called ENTITLEMENTS. Those who accept entitlements will not threaten their rights to them and that accounts to over 49% of the population. These people are too lazy to work and surely will be too lazy to fight for our country.
So, we need to start facing facts that such arms include tanks, ships, fighter jets and the like. Even thousands of us armed with the best MIL-style autos are just going to get creamed by a few bombers overhead. Our little handguns arent going to cut it.
Ships and cannon were not expected for every man. Don't loose focus here and walk down the pathos path of the liberal mindset. Arms are what an individual can arm themselves with. That concept is the correct one. __________________ In a polity, each citizen is to possess his own arms, which are not supplied or owned by the state. Aristotle (384BC - 322BC)
That's why the idea of holing up in a cabin and waiting is stupid. The preppers all talk about hiding in the woods far from cities, but if the balloon goes up - and you will only know it has because you'll wake up one day and nobody will have internet or phone service - the jackboots are already already coming for you - the best strategy is for patriots to gear up and head TO the centers of power and take their fight to the head of the snake - whether he looks like a communist bureaucrat, or the heads of a cable news networks. You're going to die anyway, might as well take out the lizards who ordered the hit. Don't waste your ammo on the poor, ignorant slobs who outgun you and are only in it for the paycheck.
A government that blows up its own cities just to protect a few well heeled globalist parasites wont last very long.
