    not the OP of this thread. it says nothing about the 2nd being over-turned and the people having no legal & peaceful means to address this.

    now, in a paranoid parallel universe, where Congress and the President can overturn an Amendment to the Constitution without the consent of the States, and the people have no legal & peaceful means to address this, then yes.....it might be time to rise up.

    but this is in a paranoid parallel universe, so who cares.

    And if they pass gun-rules the people do not support, they can put new folks into office to undo their actions.

    There is no rational, logical, nor reasonable reason to immediately resort to violence to redress such a thing..unless one is simply looking to start **** and kill people.

    But again, this thread simply enables the paranoid fantasies of right-wing extremists.
    I believe people tried that when the democrats signed the brady bill into law and republicans replaced them.As far as I know no one made a meaningful attempt to repeal the Brady Bill even when Bush was in office and the assault weapons ban expired on its own.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    yes. Congress passed the Brady Bill, and folks who didn't like it put different people into power.

    see? no need for mass-murder.

    Did they repeal the Brady Bill? No? So putting different people in office did not do any good.
