    Right. You mistook an iconic handgun for a recoilless rifle. I'm sure that's a common mistake among military weapons experts.

    There is no need to overthrow a lawfully elected government by force because an armed populace is a deterrent against a lawfully elected government becoming a tyrannical government.

    The 2nd Amendment does not authorize a rebellion. The 2nd Amendment restricts the government, state and national, from infringing upon the rights of peaceable law abiding citizens from owning and possessing weapons that a light infantry ought to possess.

    No. It is totally inconsistent to allow the entity that the 2nd Amendment was designed to protect us from the say in what weapons we will be allowed to protect ourselves with.

    The 2nd Amendment is not about personal defense or hunting. The 2nd Amendment is about protecting citizens from a tyrannical government which has a standing army.

    "There is nothing in the text, history, or case law of the Second Amendment that authorizes the overthrow of a lawfully elected government through force of arms because a minority of citizens incorrectly perceive that government to have become 'tyrannical.'

    Nevertheless that is exactly how America came to be. And that is exactly what many of our forefathers advocated when necessary. In our system of checks and balances an armed populace is intended to be the final check on government. It should not be forgotten that the courts are a branch of government.

    The Swiss system of militia and democracy were well known to
    English republicans in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
    The English Whigs, supporters of individual liberty, rolled back the power
    of the monarch in the Glorious Revolution of 1689. Andrew Fletcher,
    in A Discourse of Government with Relation to Militias (1698), advocated
    “well-regulated militias” to defend the country.

    Sound familiar?

    This was excellent. Thanks.

    I think it proves my point, especially if you put it in the context that they had just fought a war themselves.
