    I'd be more worried if they had this guy.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Without a viable movement, it is unlikely. The ruling class in Iran has discovered this truth.

    The stereotypes that some have insisted on perpetuating in this thread are really appalling. If such stereotypes had been directed at a race, instead of at gun owners in general, or southerners, it would be viewed as a horrible example of bigotry.

    And warnings/infractions would be issued(and warranted I might add), and possibly a thread ban, and that person using those stereotypes would be publicly shamed here beyond belief(also warranted.).

    What makes you think that gun owners want to overthrow the government? Maybe they want to overthrow tyrrants. What makes you think that only the federal govt is the subject?

    You know the military would have to be firmly convinced that these people are domestic enemies. Would troops shoot upon their own families or would they consider their orders unlawful? Duty, Honor, Country..... [West Point], well I assume in that order. I think in some minds it would become an issue if the duty to protect the Constitution became a duty to protect the government, if the government is the enemy to the Constitution.

    And I might add that if it wasn't for all the "redneck" gun owners in the United States demanding that the Second Amendment be respected, we'd still be seeing black people swinging from trees in the South.

    There was a gun ownership component to Jim Crow that cannot be overlooked.

    Actually, the first American gun control measures after the civil war were done in backlash to reconcilliation, former slave owners didn't want the newly freed slaves to have the ability to own firearms. Even before that, slaves were denied the right to bear for fear of retaliation.
