    we know people are killed by guns. people are enslaved when they have no means to defend themselves. the founding fathers recognized the greater evil and wrote in it the guarantee that the populous would be armed. to assume that a armed civilian can not successfully revolt is ridiculous and has been proven wrong over and over.. the latest proof is Syria
