My brother once urged upon me the importance of the second amendment; specifically, he emphasized the part about threats both foreign and domestic.
That day I made an assumption. That assumption was no militia could ever overpower the American military. If we pull a knife, then they’ll pull a gun. If we pull a gun, they’ll fire up the drones. My nihilism brought me to the conclusion that we were helpless. The assumption was correct, the military possessed more firepower than any militia could capacitate. The conclusion was faulty. We weren’t helpless. Our weapons, too, would have to evolve.
