As I understand it, we Americans are granted the right to bear arms in order to defend ourselves against an oppressive government (not against criminals, those are the government's responsibility). Fair enough, but does anyone really think a group of people with pistols, shotguns or bows and arrows are going to be able to topple the federal government nowadays? Two hundred years ago maybe, but now we couldn't do a thing with these toys. In keeping with the constitution, we should have the right to bear serious arms.

How strong? What would it take to topple the U.S. government, should it become an oppressive regime? I think individuals need access to...

nuclear weapons. Yes, the bomb would keep that pesky white house in its place.

Remember, nuclear weapons don't kill people. People kill people.
