It comes up in every thread pretty much these days: the right to bear arms is what keeps our gov't (USA, mostly) in check. Without our armed citizens, the government could rob us of all our other rights. What do you think? Maybe in the days of ol' we could fight back against the army, but now, do you think we'd have a chance? Lot's of people talk about Germany before WWII and how the gov't took the guns from their people and then they started taking away all other rights.....but if the people were armed in the first place, how'd the gov't take all the guns without the people not putting up a fight? Were they unable to? Unwilling to?
