With human nature being what it is and as it has changed none since the days of our nation’s founding, we can learn from the informed wisdom of our founding fathers who had seen repeated attempts at benevolent government around the world repeatedly fall victim to human nature.
Our founders sought to offset that tendency by giving the citizens recourse against governing bodies or presidents who might be tempted to steal the people’s power.
The Left refuses to imagine that the lack of Presidential usurpation in our nation’s history is ONLY due to the 2nd Amendment.
And that is why they are like Lucy to the Conservative’s Ricky.
They cant see what is wrong with their harebrained schemes.
If we no longer had guns to keep the Government honest (to the extent it is) we would eventually see what the founders knew.
That power must be chastened by power.
But we would have to pay dearly to learn that lesson which is free to those who would read from the history books.
In a domestic war to win back our sovereignty from a adventurous tyrant, how many lives would be lost?
MANY more than we have lost due to random gun violence (the blame for which can be argued to rest at the feet of Liberals).
