<"We have a 2nd amendment in this country and I think we have an obligation to use it!"

“The Second Amendment is about maintaining, within the citizenry, the ability to maintain an armed rebellion against the government if that becomes necessary,” he said. “I hope it never does, but it sure is important to recognize the founding principles of this nation, and to make sure that they are fully understood.”>

That is exactly the kind of chaotic society-wide breakdown which is consistent with our stage of potential Crisis as predicted by the Political Stress Index (PSI) by Turchin in the book, "Ages of Discord." Many countries, past and present, have slid into chaos when armed citizen militias attacked the central government (and each other).

That an elected Congressman should say such a thing shows that he knows nothing about history and is totally unfit to lead.
