This cartoon shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the Second Amendment. It is not designed to overthrow a tyrant. It is there to prevent the rise of a tyrant. It has done that very well for 236 years in a row.
Many argue that I can't do anything against the Military or the Police.
Let's say that there are 3 million Law Enforcement and Military personal. About half of them are administrative and support staff. Please note: Most have also sworn oaths to uphold the Constitution.
There are 90 million households with 300 million firearms. 30 times as many people.
Add the fact that more than half of the military and police would refuse to fire on their own people. Plus many would overtly or covertly the work against them. If they passed bans and confiscation. I expect 10% or 20% would comply, the others would not. Let's also say they began to arrest the non-compliant. Jails and police would be instantly overwhelmed. Prisons are already at capacity. Crime would skyrocket because police would not be doing their jobs.
If the shooting started it wouldn't last long because the economy would fall and the politicians are all about the money.
The Second Amendment is a RIGHT that protects us against tyranny. It has worked for 236 years so far.
--Next time someone says the military is so powerful that we have no hope of defending ourselves against them call Bullshit.
