Wrong, it's to protect yourself from the tyranny of the government, not just the police. But believe it or not most LEOs support the 2nd.

There are many ways to react without violence against unjust legislation, but the police/military are the physical enforcers of law. In this sense, police == government.

The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "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 " its to protect a free state we have not been a FREE state in a long time that's why they ban or highly restrict all the good guns or bullets(anything fully auto or armor piercing) they only leave us guns that can kill civilians

milita 10 U.S. Code § 311 - Militia: composition and classes (a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard. (b) The classes of the militia are— (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

any able bodied male can be a militia

You're correct that we haven't been a free state or even a Simi free republic for some time. The firearms you can by however are more than capable. The purpose of fully automatic weapons is to create a base of fire for covering manuvers. Any person can buy a simi automatic version of a rifle and modify the trigger pull to reduce the time between shoots to the point the rate of fire almost matches a fully automatic. It's also important to note, our military is comprised of volunteers from all over our country. In the event of large scale civil unrest the military would be extremely ineffective. Large numbers would probably desert or refuse the order. The population would be left fighting federal officers, with less military grade equipment. Also it really doesn't matter to much if you can utilize good strategy and tactics to out maneuver a hostile force.

Oops, I'm an idiot. I saw this two days ago but had a brain fart and didn't do what I needed to.

Removed for rule 6:

All politics posts must go into the stickied politics megathread, which is refreshed on the 1st and 15th of every month. If something big is happening (eg. the M855 ban), the moderators will create a specific megathread for that event at their discretion.

Since I didn't catch this when I was supposed to, I'll put a link to this actual thread in the political megathread so that the discussion isn't lost completely. My bad.

How come no one is talking about the fact that this came from Ice T. He's a staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment and the media is quite about his beliefs. Of course it's because he doesn't fit the narrative most media attempts to spin.
