    I am now willing to concede that the SCOTUS believes that the 2nd Amendment allows the people to keep and bear arms, due to the neccessity of a citizen-Militia.

    But the Constitution is clear as to the purpose of this armed citizen-Militia, and it is NOT to rebel & revolt against the democratically-elected govervment of the USA.

    got anything to back up the claim that the 2nd Amendment was written for such a purpose?

    Nothing is more tiresome than listening to people who are clueless about guns and their proper use telling us who are what we need or what we should have

    - Abraham Lincoln


    "I hold it, that a little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical."
    — Thomas Jefferson, Letter to James Madison, January 30, 1787


    "And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time that his people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms...The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants."

    — Thomas Jefferson, letter to Col. William S. Smith, 1787
