Second Amendment

“…A well regulated Militia…”  A Militia is an armed force.  The President of the United States in the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.  By what stretch of the imagination is the Second Amendment designed to allow citizens to protect themselves from their OWN government?  Nowhere in the Second Amendment does it say that the “well regulated Militia,” the REASON for the Amendment in the first place, will be under the command of Joe “I have the most assault weapons so I am in charge” Wingnut, or anyone other than the Commander in Chief.  Anyone supposing that the Second Amendment was written to provide citizens with the means for armed insurrection is delusional, at best.  The ballot box is where those who don’t like the current government have their opportunity to voice their opinion.
