    Let me know when you've negotiated new treaties. We wouldn't want the government taking away your freedom to do so.
    Your use of "we" is also stupid. We did nothing. We are not the government. We were not born in 1791.

    I suspect you have very little understanding what the 2A was designed to do

    Not my intention, but as far as I know, most if not all assault weapons would qualify. In addition, there'd be some firearms that technically aren't assault weapons but would still qualify.

    Point taken: I'll try to stay away from the term for the rest of the thread.
    sometimes several people need to be terminated extremely quickly. Like a bunch of home invasion robbers.

    you appear to be terrified guns unless only the government owns them

    There's an important point to be made here.

    Remember the Tianenmen Square protests in China, however long ago that was? Remember that iconic image that came out of this event, of a lone man standing in front of a column of tanks? For China, this was rather amazing, but it wouldn't be so much here in America.

    There seems to be a ill-formed assumption that if it came down to a war between the people of the United States, and our government, that the military would fall in line on the government's side.

    But do not forget, that the military consists of people, not mindless machines. When it gets down to such a war, how many of these people in the military will take the side of government, and against their fellow Americans? Remember that these men and women have all taken an oath to defend and uphold the Constitution. When government goes so far off the rails that war breaks out between it and the people, I think it is safe to assume that a large number of the people in the military will realize that their duty is to their countrymen, and not to their government.

    Terribly confusing poll title.

    Are you misunderstanding the concept of representation? Are you claiming we lack representation. Perhaps we are no longer a government of the people? We've slipped into dictatorship or monarchy and I missed it?!
