Wrong. It's an individual, inherent right that is the only defense you have against a government's forces

Sorry, Colovion, but the need to defend your home from criminally-minded citizens is different than the right to oppose the government with force. The latter does not exist. Article Three calls it Treason.

The Constitution gives you plenty of ways to oppose government over-reaching. To call what you think of as over-reaching by the name of tyranny is verbal overkill and not accurate or useful. It is not common sense, either. And it allies you with anyone on the Left or Right who argues that the only response to the status quo is to take up arms against the tyrant.

Sounds like George Wallace and John Wilkes Booth, not to mention John Brown.
