The Second Amendment is a Control Mechanism

What better way for a tyrannical government and its autocratic oligarchs to keep its citizens under control, by allowing some of its citizens to keep the rest of the populace under constant fear of extrajudicial arbitrary killing, and letting citizens slaughter each other without due process, all the while as these citizens believe that they are upholding freedom.

And the autocratic oligarchs get richer and richer as they sell you ever more powerful weapons that will allow you to kill even more and more of your fellow citizens at a faster and faster rate, yet which will still be woefully inadequate against government forces.
