    something our government seems to engage in with utter impunity these days - part of the reason many people feel a need to be able to defend themselves. And part of the reason many people feel it is not really OUR government.

    Believe me, civil war is the last thing I would want. But when the government loses all legitimacy, a direction in which it is headed with stolen elections, gerrymandering leading to unequal and unjust representation, and its continuous illegal actions in violation of the very Constitution which provides it with legitimacy in the first place, the people are going to demand a change. And when an illegitimate government uses force to suppress the people, the people are going to defend themselves. Our government knowing this is our best protection against it ever happening. And a powerful force pushing the government back towards the rule of law.
