Really, though, my intent was to answer a poster who wondered if people really really would take up a gun in response to oppression. Yes, they would.
there are two sides to this coin of course, are you taking a stand against oppression? or are you trying to overthrow a democratically elected government? the government can claim that in attempting to overthrow it by force of arms you have shown yourselves to be undemocratic and therefore you have provided a good reason for much tighter firearms legislation. tricky question this one and politicians are of course very tricky people.
