    I believe plotting to kill police officers, or in fact anyone is a crime. Provided it is serious plotting and not just some drunken what if scenario

    No, the people are given a right by the founding fathers to fight what they percieve as a tyranical goverment and its soldiers. Now if they actually acted, then a court and a jury of piers would judge whether the actions were warranted. Meeting and plotting against the goverment is perfectly ok based on our values.

    They engaged in a conspiracy to commit acts of murder, that is a crime. They were arrested for it

    A court and a jury of their piers will now judge whether the actions were warranted

    No they were planning to attack what they percieve as a tyranical goverment, something allowed based on founding principles. Something which created the second amendment in the first place.

    No they aren't. They're given a right to peaceably assemble, not plot murder of cops. These guys are the real tyrants, not the govt that the Founders created. If they were in power, then you'd see what real tyranny is.

    Now if they actually acted, then a court and a jury of piers would judge whether the actions were warranted.
    Nope, plotting a crime is punishable by law. That's why (for example) undercover cops who seek out sex offenders on the internet can have them charged for trying to arrange sex with minors online (even if they don't actually molest a minor).

    Meeting and plotting against the goverment is perfectly ok based on our values.
    Or lack thereof.

    I guess. But I think the 'weapon of mass destruction' found in Iraq was a weee bit larger than the so-called 'WMDs' the Hutaree militia was allegedly found with.

    Missiles are not "WMDs" If that's your standard of WMDs then we need to invade Saudi Arabia, China, Russia, Iran, etc etc too right?
