The point of an armed citizenry is to prevent tyranny.

Speaking of which. What happened to LABF? Banned or maybe funding stopped once Obama got elected.

Yeah, I've heard of it.

How does that show that a national revolt by gun-owners will effectively overthrow a tyrannical regime?

Do note, also, that widespread gun ownership is not well-correlated with a healthy civic society and democracy when you look at the entire planet.

What are the odds that our government will "suddenly" become tyrannical?

What makes you think our system and institutions are so weak that they will literally be overwhelmed overnight and we'll wake up under a totalitarian regime?

Why do you hate America so?

Lol. Our government would never act in a tyrannical fashion. Ask the Cherokees about that.

Or the Navajo, or Sioux, or Cheyenne, or Huron, and so on and so on.

How would you stop such things from happening again with your peashooter?

Have we not learned and evolved as a society and a nation, so that we now have the mechanisms in place to make those sorts of things from happening again quite unlikely?

Or is government something to always be feared and hated, and one best armed oneself to the teeth to ward off its essentially evil nature?

Lol. Some of us have learned and have stockpiles of mechanisms to keep those sorts of things from happening.

Only when they conspire to kill 3000 people they were elected to protect in order to establish a climate of perpetual fear and give trillions to their bankster over lords.

So for a guy who has a reputation as an American government-hating firebrand screaming about evil imperialism...

Is a blind trusting subject on the home front.

You're lucky that strawmen aren't actual beings, because your genocide of them is pretty damned horrific.
