You make a good point. The Constitution isn't there to save your ass if you do something stupid and later realize it was a mistake.
But there is the wording of the 2nd amendment that clears that up.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be
Most people look at the right to bear arms part and overlook the rest.
The militia is the armed American people, but a well regulated militia is one with structure that adheres to and subscribes to the original contents
of the constitution that each state had agreed to, it is not the national guard. Each state who agrees should be able to secede from the Federal
Government if it does not go by the constitution (however I know many will state that is not the case and states can not actually secede) That aside,
even if the Constitution is a thing of the past, if you study the blue print that the constitution laid out for us it does not matter.
Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
Unfortunately, there are no real heroes or true revolutionaries in this story. Because, the guy who tries to start something will not be killed, but
be mocked and ridiculed for the rest of their lives.
The revolution does not start unfortunately until the federal government oversteps their bounds and stops caring about the Constitution and puts it on
an open display. Thats the 2nd amendment and thats why its there. The founding fathers knew that the nation would ultimately deteriorate back into the
hands of tyrants. Thats why they placed the 2nd amendment the way that they did.
And to the poster who suggested that revolution would be peaceful, you are living in a dream world. Many people will die, family members, mothers,
fathers, children and friends. It is not anything to look forward to other than the fact that it will correct our path for future generations.
If starvation and death doesn't sound peaceful that is... it is not going to be a walk through candy land by any stretch of the imagination.
