Isn't the National Guard the 'well armed militia'? What are they doing overseas? They are certainly well armed.
A Grumman A-10 or an F16 with laser sighted bombs is certainly 'well armed.' Oh, that's right, they are defending you against people who wouldn't guard an oil pipeline.... Sorry, fighting Brown Muslims.....er....no.....erm..........Not sure here......Something about 9/11 and the SAUDI ARABIANS who supposedly attacked New York.....Only....Saudi Arabia got VIP treatment........I'm still very confused...
Your country is in peril, under attack at the border in Arizona, California etc. Well, off you jolly well go to defend it (since your National Guard are off elsewhere). We'll send food... That's why you joined the NRA, right? So you could defend your country? No? So you could defend yourself against a government who would take your liberties? Didn't the Shrub boys do that with the Patriot Act? Where were you? To defend your home? Really? Because you can't trust the Government to do that for you? Well, off you jolly well go to overthrow them, right? No? Okay........I guess I see your point.....maybe not.....
Well, good job you hold precious the amendment that gives you the right to carry a gun. Was it that or a very pointy car?
I will defend, to the death, your "God" (Trademarked to mean "Only the Christian beardy one") given right to bear a single shot, muzzle loading, flintlock musket......

Well, if you're holding on to every word of the amendment, you have to take it in context. I'm sure the authors didn't have AR-15's with red-dot sights and flash inhibitors. I bet they thought flintlocks were more than anyone needed.....

This is exactly why I find it hilarious that people think "educational material" issued by the U.S. should be 100% trusted. American publications would have you believe that America has never lost a war ( 1812, Vietnam.. ), and that "the troops" are always out there fighting for "our freedoms" .
Wait, what do you have against Nazi Germany? You mean this nation that let corporations do whatever they wanted? Supported a military that touted their soldiers as heroes no matter how awful their acts were? Supported a Christian faith above all others? Waged war against countries... against the wishes of a collective group of surrounding countries? Well.... doesn't this sound familiar. Funny how America didn't care about WW2 until the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.... yet not surprising. They were too busy copying everything they were doing to pretend they cared enough to fight against them. And here come the blissfully ignorant American "patriots" (or nationalists if you're stupid enough to think that is a positive term) saying that they are responsible for eradicating fascism and NWO.
