A candidate for US Senator from Nevada - SHARRON ANGLE - has been quoted as suggesting (some of the) people of the United States might need to resort to "Second Amendment remedies" if they cannot get their way via regular political means.
The Second Amendment to the Constitution provides for the right of the people to keep and bear arms.
"Second Amendment remedies" is a cutesy way of suggesting something quite "un-cutesy": armed uprising against our lawfully elected government ( sedition, treason, and civil war) by those unwilling to subject themselves to the vagaries of democracy.
Ms Angle is hardly alone in her stance. A half hour or so browsing the internet will produce hundreds and hundreds of people - who call very openly for civil war - and dozens of self-serving gurus who do their best-each and every day- to inflame the fears and passions of their sheep-like followers.
THERE IS one little fact these "rabble rousers" may have forgotten: The rest of us have 2nd Amendment Rights too ...and some of us are considering our own Second Amendment remedies !
That's right: Some of us are considering armed resistance to anyone - Right, Left, or Unclassifiable-who wishes to wage war on our government !
If you are thinking about starting an armed rebellion ....consider this your first , last , and only warning.
