Comments: A Modest Proposal: Call Up The Militia

Brilliant and smart, first time I've read this concept anywhere. You're right that it would not ever really happen under That One, but we are talking about political theater, right?

That would of course be the "well-regulated" milita?

To my albiet hazy recollection of the Constitutional Law I learned back when schools still taught it the Second Amendment provides protection of the majority against the tyrrany of a minority. Doesn't say anything about overthrowing a suddenly tyrranical government. Doesn't say anythimg either about throwing down an incrmentally tyrranical church, or about illiterate bare-footed kool-aid guzzling rubes running around with Weapons of Mass Destruction. What it says is "a well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right to keep and bear Arms, shall mot be imfringed."

The extreme 2nd Amendment people are convinced that gun controll is all part of conspiracy and that the first and 4th Amendments are next, after the 2nd Amendment crashes and burns.

Don't give them the satisfaction of debunking these so-called conspiracies. Feed them more conspiracies to worry about. That's what I've been doing.

Very crankily yours,

NY Crank (Can I call you "NY"?) - I can't help noticing the 2nd Amendment people have sat idly by polishing their guns - not to mention their weapons - while the 1st and 4th Amendments have been pretty thoroughly gutted. But then, I'm fairly cranky myself...
