The Second Amendment Is A Test

The Second Amendment, I would argue, has always been incorrectly argued in the sense that it is argued in court on the phrase "shall not be infringed" and "a well-regulated militia," but the more important clause, the one that gets to the heart of the matter is really the phrase "necessary to the security of a free state."
Blessed be the LORD, my rock, Who trains my hands for war, And my fingers for battle. Psalm 144:1
Si vis pacem, para bellum

It is proper to use our First Amendment right against politicians or government goons who try to restrict it. The same is true for our Second Amendment right.
This is my opinion. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

It may be right, but the consequences are hard, and not in your favor. I believe this is why so many go along with a gradual, incremental forfeiture of rights... they/we don't like it but in the end, you can only choose 1 hill to die on. (maybe 2 if you are lucky)

The object of RKBA is not to die defending your rights but to make the other b die for violating them.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.

Some people think it's better to die fighting back and others will dig their own grave without a fight.

If the Second Amendment is a test, John Cornyn failed.
When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society,
over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it
and a moral code that glorifies it. - Frédéric Bastiat
