There is no 2nd Amendment problem. There is a police state problem. Before 9/11, police in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, asked me to join their ranks. It would have involved making false reports against police targets, the self-employed, and the outspoken. It would have involved breaking into houses with police as lookouts. It would involve beating people up. Interfering with the revenue collection system can have dire consequences. I refused to break laws for police. So, they told me I would lose my family, my contracting busines, my home, my rental properties, and that I would suffer death, beating, and/or prison
