    So.. will the 'well regulated militia' be up to the task of standing up to Marines, drones, tanks, and aircraft carriers?

    I didn't think so.

    I see that the founders did not see any point of separation when they created the 2nd Amendment. Back then, militia == army. We didn't have a standing army. We needed every citizen to stand up and take part. Now we have a volunteer military force bigger than the next 7 nations combined.

    I'm sorry.. what did you want that AR-15 for again?

    Military/civilian weapons didn't need separate categories in the 1700's. Technology demands separate categories now. Overthrowing a 'tyrannical government' is a noble idea in our Constitution, but seriously...

    Is that realistic? To hell with the current debate... lets say you, as a private citizen, can have any weapon system you want. Guns, artillery, tanks, fighters, bombers...nukes..

    Are you really expecting to stand up against the U.S. Government if it really wants to take you down?

    What are you fighting for anyway? The right to pretend you are an action hero?
