    Re: Are pro-2nd Amendment?

    One original intent of the Second Amendment was so the populace could defend itself against the government if necessary. Back then, the musket was the weapon of choice for the military.

    Can you imagine the result of a band of citizens armed with handguns and hunting rifles against the US military?

    I was merely noting where to start but you are correct

    however, when big mouthed Darryl Gates former Chief, LAPD brayed about breaking down doors of NRA members if they didn't comply with some proposed gun ban in California, the head of the LAPD union told Gates he could do it himself since the rank and file didn't fancy getting shot by people who normally were very pro police if they police were forced to do such a thing

    well trained marksmen with 338 caliber or so accurate rifles are the best weapon to use against a tyranny. You don't shoot at an M1 Abrams tank-you shoot at the scumbag politicians who ordered the tanks to attack your neighborhood

    All government has a penchant for tyranny, if left unchecked it will certainly trend in that direction.

    yes, and apparently some folks believe that if any more restrictions are placed upon gun-ownership in the USA, those politicians who vote for such laws, and those people who lobby & support such rules, should be killed.

    Yes, it does, which was the basis for outlawing handguns in DC. The SCOTUS shot that one down, and didn't fire a shot.
