  • You cannot claim the 2nd Amendment protects you against the government, while also claiming the US Gov't is "illegal". That's a contradiction-- the The Constitution IS "government".
  • The Founders considered States Rights, and regulated State Militias the cure for an overbearing Federal government-- not a general armed populace.
  • Violent uprisings don't work.
