It's simple. The police exist for the sole purpose of protecting me. They merely determine what instrument is necessary for my protection. And, I have every right to protect myself. Therefore, the police have determined that I need every weapon they need for my protection.The argument that civilians need assault weapons to protect themselves from the government is absurd. Who, exactly, are you going to shoot? A police officer? A Marine? There is no Palace Guard. Politicians aren't going to knock on your door to take your gun. Some of you have said our military will turn on the government and support "the people". Who are the people? And if that is correct then why did you need the assault rifle?
If, as many of you claim, there is a civil war then you will be taking on the full force of the United States military with your rifles. That should thin out the idiot gene pool.
... that is, unless the police exist for some other purpose.
Then, yes, we will need protection from them.
And, dufus, the Navy and Marines have internal directive prohibiting them from engaging in combat with Americans in the United States.
The government is what is described in the Constitution. If someone attempts to set up a dictatorship so they can write their own whim as laws, and orders the Armed Forces to attack the population, I believe they will uphold their oath and defend the Constitution.
You seem to hold to the fascist principle that the head of state defines the government.
Thus, you're a fascist. Fascism is prohibited by the Constitution.
You're also a lying treasonous fraud. It's no surprise you oppose the Constitution. You spent your entire life hating the United States. Your current desire to institute a fascist government is no surpirse.
