There’s only one base and he didn’t cover it. The Second Amendment exists to reaffirm and assure the fourth inalienable right listed in the Declaration of Independence - the right of the people to “alter or abolish” a tyrannical government.
Writings such as The Federalist go so far as to explicitly state the 2nd is in the Constitution because the people need to be armed as a fail-safe for overthrowing the Federal government. “Federal” being named specifically as the subject in question.
I don’t mean to be preachy. I’m tired and cranky. Tomorrow I may read this and think, “Wow. I’m a jerk.”
It’s okay to be “cranky and tired”, we all are..... I know that I sure am sick of what all is going on in our country.
I am pleased to see that Sheriffs in nearly every state have come out in support of our side. Obama and his filthy democrats are very formidable enemies, so we need all the help we can get.
I would much rather have the Sheriffs in the tent pissing out, than outside pissing in.
I doubt very much that we will ever see an elected Sheriff preach about: “the right of the people to alter or abolish a tyrannical government.”, at least not until things get far worse in this country. Of course, at the lightning speed that our country is devolving, that reality could be around the next bend.
As for me, I will continue try to enjoy what is good in my life, while I prepare for the coming storm.
