Gun ownership didn't help in Katrina. It didn't help when services were cut off and entire neighborhoods were abandoned in Detroit. It didn't stop any instance of Martial Law in the last century and it won't now.Well think about it, how many people die at the hands of the military? And why are there detention centers being built and have been built in the US? What are the rules of Martial Law because it has been declared already so what are you going to do when troops ride into your community shooting at people like they have overseas.
Because guess what.. It's coming here soon. So it's not a romantic fantasy. it's called a genocide. What other way to kill off the black people? Katrina was a test run and what happened there?
When the truth is finally revealed what do you think will happen? Roses and tea??? No no no no. You have to be ready for what will happen.
This isn't the 1800s -- when both sides mostly have a bunch of pea-shooters. The other side is overwhelmingly funded down to a militarized police force. They're better trained and they have force multipliers. And they have intelligence capabilities that dwarf anything available to the average citizen.
I get that the constitution wrote the 2nd amendment as an attempt to balance out the potential power of a corrupt and tyrannical government, but it was written in a time by authors who could not have possibly had any idea what modern warfare would look like.
Guns don't solve political or social problems nearly as well as the pro-gun side of the debate likes to claim. It also tends to ignore the social problems that are caused by a lack of control or a culture that worships firearms.
