I don't like guns, mainly because I'm English and have never had any experience of them, but I have no issue with Americans being able to possess and carry them - different country, different culture. Now I've got that out of the way, I do have a serious question.

There is much talk from the Americans on this board about how owning guns ensures that they cannot be pushed around by central government. How true is this? If the Federal Government started behaving in a way that you felt was impinging on your freedoms, do you really expect that the population would rise up and go to war with the government? As I stated, this is a serious question and I am looking forward to what should be some enlightening answers.
