Little thing called the Civil War says that at some point in time, a portion of our free country got pissed off enough at federal overreach as to feel their liberty was being stripped away from them in such a manner that they decided to organize and enact a secession which included a full blown war.As a free country, we've never faced a situation where our own government is truly at the edge, poised to start trying to take major civil liberties away from us. I say start... of course, last year they began a massive governmental overreach with all of the Covid lockdowns, mandates, and restrictions. The gun laws being proposed now are the most draconian ever proposed. And that's just the beginning for them.
It's hard to wrap your mind around the possibility that we, as a nation, may have to push back on a government that's getting entirely too comfortable with their ever-increasing power grabs. At least the democrats aren't trying to hide their intentions. A disarmed population is a compliant population. Politicians no longer believe they work for the people. They believe the people exist to be ruled. It's troubling they have managed to get as far with it as they have with so little resistance.
Our country formed on the premise of bucking an oppressive and tyrannical government. A sarcastic person might even say that the third time's a charm.
