That's the beauty of the 2nd Amendment - a portion of Violence is reserved for We the People, it's not owned outright by the Government.

As Rush Limbaugh often says, and more succinctly; "Ours is a world governed by the aggressive use of force."

You don't have to like it, but you do have to agree with it.

There's a part of me that looks at those who rail against the very system and people who protect them, who looks at everyone who wants to take us apart, and I want to say "Fine. Have it your way. We're leaving, and we're taking our money with us. We're taking our military with us. We're closing up shop, we're closing our borders, and if you even sniff in our direction we're lobbing an ICBM at you. So shut the fuck up, and go the fuck away."

But if we do that, people will die. Lots of people. And I don't know if I have the willpower to look at corpses piled up behind more barbed wire fences and just do nothing.

Although to be blunt, the prospect of building a wall around San Francisco and isolating THAT particular infection is almost too tempting. But they've earned their amputation.

Frederic Bastiat made much the same point writing about collective organization of individual rights in "The Law" way back in 1850.
