United States Constitution;
Article One, Section Eight:
"The Congress shall have power..."
"To provide for calling forth the militia to execute the laws of the union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the militia, and for governing such part of them as may be employed in the service of the United States, reserving to the states respectively, the appointment of the officers, and the authority of training the militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;"
The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the united States of America:
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."
There are those who assert that the Second Amendment gives Americans the right to use deadly force against the federal government should they decide that the federal government has slipped into "tyranny". Ron Paul, last week upon the signing of the National Defense Authorization Act, said that the bill amounted to the government sliding into tyranny.
So, do Americans have the right, under the Second Amendment, to assassinate members of Congress who voted for the NDAA? Can Americans now assassinate Bark Obama?
Is the Second Amendment a license to assassinate American federal officials and elected leaders?
Would anyone want to be elected to, appointed or hired by the federal government knowing that the Second Amendment is a death writ with their name on it should someone put their name on a list of American government leaders or workers who have become tyrannical?
