...Because while most people may say they uphold the second Ammendent and have them to defend against government tyranny, they don't mean this (or the incoming government). these points i call
...government's do not give a shit about hypothetical threats.
...But it ain't happening now, and there are no indicators it is about to happen.
Oh fuck off. You're not even debating in good faith anymore.
Try: nearly every single government paper ever produced on deterrence. No, I don't have the time to list them all.
Bullshit. you're spouting things and you won't back them up?
You say people that support the 2nd amendment aren't referring to it's use on our current gov? rather pretentious to say that because people have not yet felt that it is necessary to take up arms that they wouldn't use it on the current gov if they committed atrocities at some level.
You say gov doesn't give a shit about hypothetical threats? You know full well that they do give a shit. enough so that they spend good resources on planning for all kinds of unlikely events. The shit like the continuity of govt plans that take into account armed populace proves it. They do factor an armed populace into their equations, therefore it has some deterrent effect. you think it isn't sufficient, say that, but don't spout off superlative statements and then tell me to fuck off when i call you on it.
You say that there isn't growing resentment towards the govt, that could lead to popular support against the govt. and i'm wondering how you can possibly say that?
They never will. The government has pretty much nailed the coffin shut on this one. Right now, as we speak, "we the people" are begging on their hands and knees to have more of their rights taken away every day and the ones that oppose it are increasingly vilified and marginalised.
You might have stood a chance of organising an uprising if you'd gotten there 40 or 50 years ago but, as it stands, your constitution only means anything to the lunatic fringes. The population who you so desperately wish to save will be the first to call the cops the minute you give it a shot.
By the time the government gets bad enough to satisfy your own criterion there'll be no one left with the will to stand against them. Right now your government is rampaging across the planet, killing and torturing indiscriminately. What more would it take?
