In reading the ratification debates for the Bill of Rights it is unclear what tyrannical government they are talking about - the inclination is towards a foreign government - the ratification of the 2nd Amendment took place just 8 years after the Revoutionary War. If in some fanatsy world the United States Government became tyrannical and all the gun toting folks took up arms against them, just how much of a chance would those foks have against the US Armed Forces?

Thanks for your well thought out and intelligent expressions on this subject - it has so many puzzling aspects - good fodder for debate. i also wonder where the limits are on the 2nd Amendment - does it cover missiles, 50 caliber machine guns, bombs
Well there's a new twist - good comment e-five - thanks
Thanks for the visit and for sharing your thoughts on the issue
That is why I used "fantasy" because there is no way this country would ever be put in that position - those that believe it could live in a fantasy world.
