6. hold on
Wasn't it a bit anachronistic to assume that the firepower available to an individual in the American Revolution was anywhere close to the firepower available to the British Army at the time?

The whole courts idea that is exposed above is nonsense, we've seen the treatment and the authority of the courts has been selective. The courts are only one branch, they need the executive branch to carry out its will. If the executive Branch was corrupted completely, why would it ever listen to the courts, it would only listen to the people. If the democratic principles of the nation were corrupted they would only answer to our revolt.

I don't like finding an Uzi on the street, but I don't like seeing a religious nut on the sidewalk preaching either. But I fully support the constitutional right to both, when you start making concessions in one, the door is left open for concessions in others. It is hypocrisy to be selective in your acceptance of the amendments and then cry foul when other liberties are infringed.
