You have a first amendment right to say that and I have a second amendment right that keeps it just that, your right freedom of expression.
BTW- Land is land and defending land is not the same as defending the law of the land(US constitution) or protecting the spirit of how that land is governed.
Didn't say anything about land. I said 'country', which is the people, the land, it's laws, mores, and ideals.
If I'd have meant 'land', I would have said 'land'.

Fine. Please clarify your previous assertions...I found them to be convoluted at best, and apparently VERY confusing.

Understandable. After all, our government wasn't coming after YOU.

The only way to answer your question is to point out it's shortcomings.
The second amendment doesn't provide or promote the formation of citizen militias, the "well regulated militia" spoke of is that of the US Govt(A standing US army did not exist at that time) and therefore the right to keep and bear arms is a check and balance to the need for a "well regulated militia, necessary for the security of a free state" to protect us from foreign invaders.
Amendment II
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.
BTW- I support the whole constitution as an overarching legal agreement, some support only the parts they agree with. You cannot pick and choose only the parts you consider valid since that invalidates the spirit of constitution as it was ratified(unanimously)....and therefore it cannot extend constitutional authority to any specific part while ignoring the whole of it.
I'm not sure how you figure the Second Amendment and organized well regulated militias, factor into this. Our government attacked, and killed, innocent women and children, not just those they considered "bad guys".

That may be the most moronic invocation of Martin Niemoller I've ever read.

I don't believe that Weaver was persecuted. I don't believe that the Davidians were persecuted.

The comparison is almost perverse.

I was going to remind her that the government is just a few people on Capitol Hill...who are apparently no longer 'for the people' but for themselves...

KKK? I prefer 'Manny, Moe, and Jack'. They're smarter and better organized. Probably more dangerous, too.
When I hear 'KKK', I think of the hillbilly who tried to blow up a car...

Quite strange. I know quite a few people well that own guns and they are stable. But I get why you insist on your propaganda. I first noted it when I made a trip to Washington D.C. in the late 90s. At the time were signs with an 800 number to call if you thought someone had used a gun in the commission of crime. Never mind the crime, rant about the gun.

Indeed.

“The media and the political elites, they denigrate us and they cringe at the sight of long lines at gun shows around this country. They mock Americans buying firearms at a record pace…they don’t get it because they don’t get America,”

After President Barack Obama said the NRA “willfully lied” to the American people about defeated gun legislation last month, LaPierre noted how Obama had tried to reassure gun owners during his re-election campaign.

“Nowhere does freedom live anymore than in our Second Amendment right to defend ourselves, our families and our nation,” LaPierre said.“Without that freedom we really aren’t free at all. There is nothing more good or right or normal in America than an honest American citizen owning a firearm to protect himself or protect her family.”

“They can try to blame us and shame us with all their might,” he continued.“We will never sacrifice our freedom on the altar of elitist acceptance. We will never surrender our guns, never!”

“They’re coming after us with a vengeance to destroy us — to destroy us and every ounce of our freedom…we need to meet them head-on,” he said.“We don’t care if it’s round one, round two or round 15. The NRA can go the distance.”

“To the political and media elites who scorn us, we say, let them be damned!” he said.“We will always stand and fight for our American freedoms.”

He reminds me of the Vichi French... they chose to join and submit to evil, and even help them, rather than to think about ever taking steps to fight it.

Evil wouldn't matter, he's on the side of whomever is best armed... it's sad really.
