  1. Hey. The HK protesters have publicly said they need the Second Amendment, and they’re not wrong.

    The point of 2A is to make armed revolt sufficiently possible that it will never actually become necessary.


    • Who among these protesters said that and are they representatives? Source/s?


  2. If #hongkong protests had an armed element to them, #china would merely use that as a pretext to proactively crush them with force (and obviously the Chinese military would end that pretty fast; it has vastly better weapons, inc. armoured vehicles)


    • Just like we crushed the Taliban?


  3. If Chinese people were armed like in the US, or #hk had pistols in every home, #china would still win easily (and have more reasons to use violent like it did in #tiananmensquaremassacre )


  4. I am always amused by armchair theorists with a pistol on their lap thinking they can ‘dethrone’ a government with 10,000+ nukes (even >after< M.O.V.E. bombing). Yes, they'd bomb their own people if 'necessary'. #obama did too.
