Thank you. I just think that one has to take care and keep a clear focus on the semantics. Do you believe that we are in any danger of "absolute
Despotism", to quote the exact portion of this document? Think about it. Sure enough, my local government can overstep a few boundaries. State
government may do a few things outrageous. Federal Govt can do all sort of unseemly crap. But it's a far, far cry from the "absolute Despotism".
It's just not in the nature of the American people, regardless on their stance on gun control. I consider the "overthrow the government" thing as a
straw man, for many reasons. One is that it will remain light years away from "despotism" for foreseeable future, one other is that if God forbid it
gets serious about "despotism", magazine loaded shotgun like Saiga (which I happen to like, a great weapon) won't make a difference. I like
firearms like many other normal men, but the argument about "overthrowing the govt" strikes me as a case of mental masturbation. I don't mean
offense, but that's the view I hold.
