Letter to the Editor, again ...

I ask one question of those of you who believe that the founders' intent with the 2nd Amendment was to allow the people to violently overthrow their own government.  Why didn't they just come out and say that?  "As it may become necessary for The People to overthrow their own government, the right of The People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."  They could have, right?  But they didn't.  Why?  How about because that wasn't their intent?
What they DID say was "A well-regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free State, The right of the people ... "  For the security OF the State.  Not FROM the State.  If 'The People,' collectively, want to 'alter or abolish' their government, they have that power.  They won't need guns.  Assuming, that is, that it really IS 'The People,' and not a handful of discontented individuals.  Right?


  1. Well done. Losers take great comfort in the mythology that they have been directed by God, or Allah, or the founding fathers to use force to get what they failed to get at the ballot box, on the job, or out of life.

  2. The gist of their argument seems to be, We don't care what anybody says. We have guns and we will use them to get our way.
