    The right to bear arms in self-defense is not restricted to "against the Government", nor is all tyranny of the Government's making.

    The Founding Fathers knew this better than politicians today, given that they were rebelling against a combination of corporate depredations and governmental indifference.

    It's time the Left reclaimed the Second Amendment.

    •  The left isn't going to reclaim the 2nd amendment (12+ / 0-)

      until and unless the RKBA people are willing and able to accept real, workable and fundamental constraints on:

      1. how many weapons they are allowed to keep
      2. where they allowed to keep them
      3. what types of weapons they can be
      4. who is allowed to sell them
      5. where they can be bought/sold
      6. etc. etc. etc. etc et fucking cetera.

      The left isn't going to reclaim the 2nd amendment until and unless you can't walk off your property with a weapon capable of slaughtering 20 children in 2 minutes without the public at large knowing you have done so.

      The left isn't going to reclaim the 2nd amendment until and unless it is accepted that:

      1. Nobody who is not on the job doing law-enforcement related work needs, nevermind has any right, to carry concealed firearms.

      2. It is the default that you can NOT bring your arms, concealed or otherwise, into a place of public accommodation without explicitly asking and receiving permission from whomever is in charge at the public accommodation.

      3. Etc. etc. et-fucking-cetera.


      To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.

    •  Don't tell that to some RWers I know, (0+ / 0-)

      who have stated - in so many words, that only the government can violate your rights or be tyrannical.
