If the 2nd Amendment is about preventing tyranny, then how are you going to protect yourself against a government armed with tanks, assault helicopters, cruise missles, and jet fighters with cluster bombs?

Ask any combat vet from Viet Nam or AfPak how well a small-arms weilding home-based force can resist a military invasion and occupation.

Go ahead.

Ask.

who says we're going to go head to head with the military?
the ones to shoot are the US legislators who ratified such a law,the putz who SIGNED the law,the judges who upheld it.

They can't hide forever. they have homes,families,go shopping,etc.

Are you so foolish to believe that the armed forces will attack their own families, friends and fellow citizens? And the few Obamabots that did would face 300,000,000 gun barrels.

Simple. Citizens resisting tyranny who are initially armed with 'assault weapons' and hunting rifles and shotguns will attack armories and patrols, sieze & deploy heavier weapons, attack bases and sieze armor and aircraft, and before long these millions of citizens are going to be in control of serious military ordnance. Read a history book and you'll see that's how it's done.

There are about 1.5 million active and another 1.5 mil reservists in the US Armed Forces. Most of those would have a serious problem with turning military weaponry on fellow Americans.

The few that did, even with a massive technological and armament advantage, they would be in for a hel of a battle.The 70-80 million people in the US that own a gun make a fairly formidable foe. That isn't even considering the creative types making other weapons.

Tyranny has been held at bay and our constitution has stood for a couple of hundred years. You can't say that it doesn't work.

A disturbed young man murders his mother, goes to the local elementary school and murders a score of young children, a few teachers, the principal as well as the school psychologist, and then turns a gun on himself, committing suicide.

Not long after, one of the rifles said to have been used in the massacre begins to fly off the walls and counters of gun stores everywhere. Americans are in a buying frenzy . . . for the exact gun allegedly used in the Sandy Hooks Elementary atrocity.
