The Second Amendment

Now, I've mentioned from time to time that Federalist #29 is quite clear on this point, but it bears repetition.

The point of the 'right to bear arms' has *nothing* to do with feeding one's family (hunting) or protection from intruders (self-defense).

The point of having a right to hold a gun in the presence of your politicians is to keep them honest.

Now, that said, turnabout is fair play.

Governments, as I understand this 'right' have no ability to own and operate *any* device that a private citizen cannot also own and operate.

So if I can't have my own nukes and nerve gas canisters, neither can they.

I bet the attitude in DC would be surprisingly different if they thought that random members of the DC population had that level of armaments.
