### If, as a matter of fact, you bear arms, you do not necessarily need
rights to get what you want. Facts trump rights, quite often. The Catholics
didn't have the right to gun down Englishmen during the Troubles, they
didn't have big numbers, didn't have advanced weaponry but they had guns
(many of them sent from loving relatives in the US), they had C4 and see
what happened - the mighty government of Her Majesty had to parlay for

Asymmetric warfare is a thing.
