The whole point of the Second Amendment is to never, ever, ever, let a government have total control over our lives (Revolutionary War). The Second Amendment is the FINAL bounce of power. You have the Supreme Court, the Executive Branch, the Legislator Branch.....AND the People. If any of those three step out of bounds (of the Constitution), it is our job to make sure they get back in line. I'm not advocating violence against the government (I served in the military) , just saying if these branches step out the Constitution, its our job to protest and make sure they understand they are in the wrong.
