What a mess.

George Will -

If Trump is nominated, the GOP must keep him out of the White House

"Were he (Trump) to be nominated, conservatives would have two tasks. One would be to help him lose 50 states condign punishment for his comprehensive disdain for conservative essentials, including the manners and grace that should lubricate the nations civic life. Second, conservatives can try to save from the anti-Trump undertow as many senators, representatives, governors and state legislators as possible."

The reality of course is the an uprising as considered by the writers pf the 2A is no longer possible. It could only happen as a coup by the armed forces. The specious people are those that still consider a civilian uprising a possibility.

 
Why would you say that?

Do you really think a group of citizens could successfully take over the US government in todays age. Getting a large enough group together long enough without attracting attention and then the overwhelming attention it would receive once discovered from the armed forces, be that police, national guard or the big three.

Look at the number pissed with the present system. You think they would back you and your mates if you pranced out with yoir guns and sang revolutionary songs. An overthrow is possible in todays world only with the help of the armed forces. Especially if it is to be quick and hopefully bloodless. A perfect example would be the overthrow of Marcos.

Things are very different from.the original time the constitution was writen. Then it was possible to be secret for longer, start things moving while it took days or weeks for news to spread, not any more. If you can see a way the citizens could acheive an overthrow I would be interested to here.

Note, I am not saying guns should be banned, just that this seems a rather feeble excuse.

 

The Ammon Bundy occupiers couldn't understand why thousands of supporters didn't take up arms to support their cause. Jesus, the Government has tanks, A10 Warthogs, cruise missiles, and Apache helicopters. No armed insurgency can fight that shit.
