    There will be no overthrow of the government or civil war in out lifetimes or our children's lifetimes, or our grandchildren's lifetimes because there is no need for it.
    Its remarkable that you can not only see the future but know why it will happen. Incredible, really.

    It's easy to see because it only takes a simple analysis of the present and a moderate grasp of reality (that last bit might be hard for some, but you might be able to "fake it till you make it" on that).

    How could an "overthrow" of the government occur? If enough people had enough firepower to overtake the firepower of the country that is more well armed than any otehr 10 countries combined. Since that will never happen, the government will never be overthrown.

    And with regard to a civil war, if it didn't happen as a result of the Civil rights act, it ain't ever happening. That was an issue worth killing people over. The **** we deal with now? Typically a bunch of crybaby pussies being pissed off because they have no ****ing perspective on what real tyranny and suffering due to government is.

    I'd suggest a grasp of history might be more relevant. Part of the hubris of the left is in thinking they know exactly how things are, when history demonstrates otherwise. You can get wound up about knowing whats on the horizon but its a fools errand. What we know is good enough-govt tyranny happens, and guns play a pivotal role in reversing that equation.

    If you want to double down on your myopic claims of knowing why people will do what they do from here out by all means continue, it makes my point-not yours.

    I can see cases where wide spread civil unrest is possible. Looting, government crackdowns etcs. The actions of the Cops during Katrina was a brief glimpse.

    He's babbling about the left in response to what I'm saying, though, which has nothing at all to do with violating the Second and Tenth amendments, as it is regarding the unrealistic and idiotic belief that a tyrannical regime can be overthrown due to the existence of the second amendment (hell, a tyrannical government could just round up and kill all of the gun owners if it wanted to, as it is a tyrannical government).

    If your hypothesis is correct, it would mean that he has some serious issues maintaining his focus on the conversation and may, perhaps, have some sort of syndrome which causes derangement and therefore prevents him from engaging in an intelligent discussion without sounding like a lunatic.

    Thus, I'll allow him to answer for himself.

    More likely the reverse.
