Yeager’s case a test of the 2A intent to preserve the right to resist tyranny

LOLOLOL

From youknowwhere, exact quote: Yeager’s case could be a legal test of the 2A intention of the founders to preserve the right to “resist tyranny” and the 1A right to declare one’s intention to do so!


HAhahahahah good one.

7. The 2A doesn't even mention "tyrannical government".

"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 infringed".

I take that to mean that the "militia" is a defense against foreign invaders.

8. Tell the dickhead to read the PREAMBLE.

 

That is where the bit about resisting opressive government resides. And it says when the shit gets bad/opressive enough, you THROW OUT the constitution/rule of law, the whole kit and kaboodle and start from scratch.

Why? Because otherwise the new rascals, simply take up where the old left off: eg. Extraordinary rendition, extra-territorial killing, and the whole gods bedamned PATRIOT Act.


2A has nothing to do with that. 2A is for defending/upholding the existing system against threats which would tear it down, or rewrite it for a priveliged few.

Yeager's threats in fact make him arguably a legitimate 2A target.
