Webley, I am still waiting for historical evidence that an armed citizenry has prevented or undid a tyrannical act by our government.
Aside from the one already provided?
In order to illustrate the principle that an armed population is useful in peeling back a the grip of a government force, it should not be necessary to limit examples to the US. The soviet army certainly found its contact with afgans demotivating, and contra use of arms has returned Nicaragua to a multiparty state.
The idea is so well demonstrated that arguing against it indicates an agenda. Tennessse Gentleman, you've written often and over a long period that you fear arms in the hands of the population. You've even found a picture of a dozen or so fellows with guns to illustrate your fear.
Why is your
fear an adequate basis for public policy, while the anxiety of others at being disarmed isn't?
