No, it's not. You're just being silly trying to claim you were not incorrect. Being proficient with a weapon is not the same thing as being proficient in combat. Whether we're talking militias or people in theaters, proficiency with a weapon is not the primary skill of combat.


Quote:
If the people are a fighting force comparable to that of a professional army, I assume you consider the laws outlawing possession of automatic weapons by the people to be unconstitutional. What we are allowed to currently possess isn't remotely what our professional fighting forces have. The feds are trying to outlaw our owning semiauto rifles that fire 60 rounds a minute while our professional soldiers have fully auto rifles that fire upwards of 6,000 rounds a minute.
Once again, the weapons are not important, it's the training, discipline and organization that are the key to what a 'well regulated militia' is. No militia in the history of the world (even the historically effective ones) has been as well equipped as a standing professional army.

Quote:
Also, the government doesn't look kindly when the people wish to receive military combat training. To this day they still spy on militia groups who do just that. Illegal? Unconstitutional?
Militia groups that operate legally have no problems. Groups that call themselves "militias" but are just fronts for illegal activity, have, unfortunately, made life more difficult for all parties (legit militias and law enforcement).

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.

Those who choose not to own a gun are free to do so....our right to own a gun is what protects their right to tell us we can't.

As for the Aurora and Sandy hook shootings......too many holes in those "official stories" to know if the "official story" is what actually happened.

Well for one, the librul media said the aurora shooter was wearing a bullet proof vest but it was really just a tactical vest, so obviously if you take that to its logical conclusion the media just blew a fistfight out of proportion to move along Obama's Nazi gun agenda.

It is of very, very little surprise to me that the people who are insinuating a government coverup to move along anti-gun agenda are the same people who think the government is coming for their guns.

Exactly....

Our military swears an oath to uphold the Constitution, and defend it from all enemies foreign, or domestic. The day may come when that domestic enemy that threatens the Constitution is our very own government

Are our men and women of the US military somehow of a higher moral fiber than their German counterparts 70 years ago? No.

The reality is that the vast majority of the population saw increased gun rights, and when the weakest of their society was in peril, the gun owners were not out there fighting for their fellow countrymen, were they? Kind of throws the "benevolent gun owners protecting society from government" argument right on its head doesn't it?
Umm, the German military during Hitler's reign swore an oath to Adolph Hitler, where as our military swears an oath to defend our Constitution......not our government or our president.

why would you leave Great Britain which is such a utopia of safety with their gun control laws for the alleged wild wild west of a shoot 'em up ok corral?

There goes someone trying to out-German the expert in German again.

The Reichsvereid existed in 1933 before Hitler came to power, too, and it swore allegiance to the constitution. What do you think happened, Hitler sent everyone home and got an entirely new army?

Nope, they just took a new oath. Oaths are worth their weight in gold.

Hitler's rise was aided by a media that dished out propaganda and the population being fed lies about what his intentions were. He used the Reichstag fire to assume total control under the guise of protecting the people.

The same kind of **** is happening here in the US....damn near every media outlet is screaming for gun control based on saving the people.....btw has anyone seen the video of Adam Lanza shooting the Sandy Hook school up?

Woefully uninformed post. You're treading on dangerous ground here, and I'm calling you out and wagering you have nothing more than a 6th grader's understanding of the sociopolitical environment of late 19th to mid 20th century Germany.

What intentions did the Nazi propaganda portray Hitler as having, exactly? What were the coverups? Cite your sources.
