If you haven't read this, please do. It's an Acrobat file, so you have to have Adobe Acrobat to read it. It was originally published in [i]Shotgun News[/i]. The Editors Note is as follows:
We in the gun community are fond of saying that the Second Amendment guarantees Americans the means to overturn a tyrannical government. The words of the Founding Fathers prove they intended an armed citizenry serve as a check on government power. Gun owners have tended, however, to avoid discussing the question that must inevitably follow. What oppressions by the state make an armed uprising morally right? I asked several writers to address this question, and most instinctively shied away. It's not an easy or comfortable topic. Clayton Cramer, however, is not one to let a tough topic dissuade him, as readers of [i]SHOTGUN NEWS[/i] columns know well. What follows may provoke you or disturb you, but these are words that needed to be written and need to be read.

KBaker: Great article. Thanks for the heads-up. A very good observation. It is amazing how much more moral people can be if they know that immorality will have painful consequences.

Bump. This is (IMHO) opinion, important.

very nice article. BTW you should post it over on DU, if you still go there. I stopped after I was busted for calling a mod a hypocrite, doenst matter that he WAS a hypocrite, just the fact that i called him on it. Had 600 hundred something posts too, was fun argueing with them and making them admit they were wrong.

Yes it is fun![8D] I'm not going to post this there, though, because they absolutely will [i]not[/i] get it. I'm leading a few, gently, towards reality I hope. This would just put them completely off.
