Come on? Who exactly would even pose a question such as this? The 2nd Amendment inspires the best behavior of government, not the reverse: the immediate & complete obedience "or else" outcome of an overreaching, gigantic government! This country has been threatened & diluted by lawyers & politicians who are elevated by a lower level of citizenship & civic responsibility! They are dubiously called "our leaders" yet the Constitution never called them that. The Constitution calls them our representatives [on purpose]! Come on folks!
