    LOL! Me? :lol: I am surprised you would ask.


    Hell, yes.

    Would a federal court agree? That might be a different story. I don't know.

    What is a group of folk known as "We the People" to do when the 2nd continually gets infringed upon?

    How much does that dollar figure equate per life when considering..
    "Throughout the course of the war, an estimated 6,800 Americans were killed in action, 6,100 wounded, and upwards of 20,000 were taken prisoner. Historians believe that at least an additional 17,000 deaths were the result of disease, including about 8,000–12,000 who died while prisoners of war."

    You are tilting at windmills. I doubt there are 1000 Americans who would consider armed insurrection regardless of what the government does.

    Together as a group or as individual rogue actors? If the latter, probably 20-50k. If the former, maybe 100?

    I have re-read your OP. I don't understand the point you're attempting to make in post #14. I don't need to start my own poll or question. Why don't you just answer the damn question?

    So the 2nd Amendment is really a worthless bobble on a tree then? It had meaning "back then" but not so much now?

    Like the right not to be compelled to be a witness against yourself still has meaning, but everybody talks to the cops, blah, blah, blah

    :D

    It still has meaning if the means are still there when there are Americans willing to use it confronted with the need to do so. I am just saying we don't really have either of those now.
