First off, a US armed insurrection: like that could achieve anything, shotguns and AR-15s VS 1000s of tanks and military aircraft. Even if veterans
joined this hypothetical uprising they still wouldn't have the equipment necessary to change anything. But the entire idea is ridiculous, the US is
one of the most stable countries in the world, there are far worst countries without any uprisings, so I don't see it happening anytime in the near
In the last decade there have been far more infringements on other amendments of the US constitution compared to the 2nd, Americans need to get their
priorities straight. When the 1st, 4th through 7th, 14th amendments are being bent or ignored, and nothing has been done to restrict the 2nd
amendment, unless you count machine guns and RPGs being illegal for domestic use.
Backround checks for buying firearms isn't Obama coming for your guns, firearms are already registered, which means the government already knows you
have them, they can come for them whenever they want to. Backround checks stop criminals and mentally unstable people from buying firearms and even
then it barely works. Also, President Bush was confiscating weapons in New Orleans, I don't remember Obama taking people's guns after hurricane
Sandy. American citizens with like 43 guns each still poses zero threat to the US government, they would have no reason to go around taking guns and
just pissing off the NRA.
