Why do so many americans think that their right to bear small arms keeps the governmet in check?

    Only in the most paranoid minds.

    Democratic countries such as Australia, Canada, Great Britain who have sensible gun control laws aren't concerned about a military take over.

    You cannot use ARTILLERY or BOMBS on your own cities, doofus

    You need INFANTRYMEN with RIFLES

    Guess what? 600,000 Soldiers with rifles cannot control a 100 million men with rifles

    DOH!

    There are 346 Apache helicopters in service. At any given time half are being repaired. An Apache can only be up for two hours. There are twenty four hours in a day. That means at any given time, to fight 100 million Americans you MIGHT have 40 helicopters on line to cover a nation 3,000 miles long, 1,000 miles wide, and with 320 million people.

    THAT WOULD GIVE YOU FEWER THAN ONE APACHE PER STATE. Good luck getting Alaska or California or Texas under control with one Apache.

    BEST OF LUCK.

    IF YOU BOMB YOUR OWN CITIES, PUTIN LAUGHS HIS A S S OFF AND WALKS IN AND PICKS UP THE PIECES IF YOU BOMB YOUR OWN CITIES. IF YOU DESTROY YOUR OWN CITIES YOU CANNOT PAY FOR OR BUILD WEAPONS. Aircraft carriers and jets are not PAID FOR or BUILT in rural areas.

    Imagine if in the Middle World War Two, Churchill suddenly decided to send the Royal Air Force to bomb London.

    That would NOT help war production. DOH!
