Expect Civil Disobedience if Politicians Try to Undermine the Second Amendment

Of course the question nobody really wants to ask is, "Are you willing to kill to defend your Constitutional rights?" Because if you are going to defy the government, that's what you're going to have to do. You're going to have to kill law enforcement people, national guard, military who are actively trying to arrest you, kill you, or seize your property; some of whom may be your "friends" or neighbors. Not a pleasant thought is it? Nobody said patriotism or freedom was easy or cheap.

Those who act illegally in government lose any legal athority!
Once our politicians such as Obama and cuomo have committed treason they no longer have any legal athority!
The press would serve the public better by giving the home address of all the liberal politicians. If they were corrupt enough to vote against the second amendment we should know where to locate them!

In the Revolutionary War, patriots/revolutionaries oppressed supporters of Great Britain by having their property confiscated, homes and businesses burned, imprisoned (if lucky), tarred and feathered (torture and often death sentences), or were forced to flee the country.

John Adams estimated that in the American Revolution, the Patriots had to struggle against approximately one-third of the population, while they themselves constituted about two-thirds of it; he did not mention neutrals. Proportions of the population for, against, or neutral on the 2nd amendment don't quite match, but it seems to be polarizing more and more.

I periodically share public opinion data, either because I’m encouraged by the results or because I think that the research helps show how to frame issues.

Examples include polling data on personal retirement accounts, the dangers of big government, support for spending caps, and viability of class warfare tax policy.

But I’ve been very narrowly focused. Just about all the polls I’ve shared have been about some...
