Most pro-gun people concede that the Second covers individual weapons,and
certainly not WMDs.
Stuff the general citizen was expected to supply themselves and bring with

And we don't need either F-15s or WMD to "reset" the _government_.

But it would make things SO much easier. Fox-2 up your Patriot act!

I think you'd fare better with an F-117. One F15 is just a target,
you'd need too many of them to maintain air superiority. I thibk

I do not thinks that was the concept as the soviets found out. No matter
how big an army you can afford it cannot defeat the rest of the populace if
it is armed at all and want its way! This is the concept of the 2nd
amendment. The Gov. should never get so big as to take away the peoples
rights and this was their defense. The first act of the Congress on the
Militia was do designate the Size of ball, type of firearm, Tent and other
equipment both the standing and reserve militia were to have in their
possession. This included every man between 17 and 47.
bob: we already have "personal ICBM's"..... they are known as

Amendment allows me to have my own personal ICBM's..!!!

If I were inclined towards terrorism, firearms would be *very* low on
my list of tools (almost as low as rockets on that list). Rental
trucks, fertilizer, and diesel fuel seem to be far more effective, and
are still easily available. (Boxcutters wouldn't even be on the list
in the first place....)
Side note: The "boxcutter" approach lost its effectiveness halfway
through the terror attacks on September 11th. The passengers on the
flight in PA demonstrated, more than adequately, why that approach is
doomed to failure from now on. It only worked on the other 3 planes
because the flight crew and passengers never believed it was possible
that they would be killed. Decade upon decade of rather "benign"
hijackings had led the US public to beleive that a hijacking would
only result in massive inconvenience, as their plane would be landing
in another country. As of mid-morning on September 11, we knew
better, and that option was forever closed to terrorists.
However, I do know and understand the fact that all governments are
nothing more or less than social conventions agreed upon by the
governed. They rule (and, in fact, exist) only by the consent of the
