    Isn't there some study that showed that there's a greater risk to the gun owner and his/her family through accident/suicide/domestic violence than the risk of needing it for self-defense in the home?

    Here's an interesting twist for those of you who said yes. Let's say hypothetically that the constitution was amended to remove the second amendment and take away people's right to bear arms. Would you still violently resist then?
    Even more.

    If the Second Amendment can be taken away, then the rest of the Bill of Rights loses all meaning. If any one of the amendments that make up the Bill of Rights can be repealed, then all of them can.

    * A study claiming "guns are three times more likely to kill you than help you" is a total fraud. Even using the low figures from the Clinton Justice Department, firearms are used almost 50 times more often to save life than to take life.15 More importantly, however, the figure claiming one is three times more likely to be killed by one’s own gun is a total lie:

    * Researcher Don Kates reveals that all available data now indicates that the "home gun homicide victims [in the flawed study] were killed using guns not kept in the victim's home."16

    * In other words, the victims were NOT murdered with their own guns! They were killed "by intruders who brought their own guns to the victim's household."17

    Not that I know of. I do have guns in my home. My daughter and wife respect the weapon, so it was never a problem.

    This really has no bearing in the long run.

    The scenario was violent force if the government came for your guns. If I was single and responsible only for myself I would, but I have a family to consider. To resist violently and put them at risk would be asinine at best. I would still resist, but passively and legally.
