The rhetoric of the people trying to legislate gun control is becoming very heated, as I suspect most of you know. You also know that in the last analysis the 2d Amendment was to ensure the citizenry against tyranny, all other purposes are secondary. There is a lot of talk of bills banning all semi-automatic weapons, which is pretty much the equivalent of de facto repealing the amendment, in my and other observers eyes. If passed it will set off a constitutional crisis and I think if a serious attempt is made to enforce it on the American citizenry, it will be very likely to set off the second American Civil War. We are going to be talking about this more but here is a primer on the stakes.
We, each and every one of us, need to be thinking about this, time may be short, which is one of the things that bother me, too much of this is being rushed without time to reflect and consider the consequences, which are likely to be severe.
