>>84054499>It's an outdated law that doesn't even fucking make sense, your gun is not going to defend you from the government, they can just fucking bomb you from the sky if you honestly think you can escalate a conflict to that point.
Anon, I want you to consider something here, because you're assuming quite a few things.
Firstly, you're assuming that the government would start bombing its own people en masse, thereby killing the people they want to control and destroying their own infrastructure in the process. Secondly, you're assuming the United States exists in a vacuum and that no other countries would protest or take advantage of the US government declaring war on its own people. Thirdly, you're assuming that the majority of the US military would have no objections to bombing their own people (consider for a moment how many soldiers likely come from conservative, gun-owning families). Fourthly, planes and tanks do not let you control a country on their own, especially one the size of the United States. Eventually you're going to need to put boots on the ground, and that's when things get messy in a nation with over 80 million gun owners and more guns than there are people.
Honestly, you just have a very simplistic view of what would actually happen if the US decided to start killing innocent people in order to enforce laws ostensibly made to stop people from being killed.
