Yes because that will be enough to take on the US Military.

We have no such Constitutional right. We have a God given right to self defense.

Oh, I've been to many airshows and from what I've read the government doesn't take too kindly to even old stuff like putting functional Brownings in a P-51, I seriously doubt they're going to allow a civilian some nice Sidewinders, etc. for the jet they're flying.

I don't believe this thread has anything to do with any particular amendment, it's about whether anyone but the SCOTUS has the power to determine Constitutionality. If you believe someone else does then the entire Constitution is obsolete.

Except it is against multiple laws to have any weapons on private or commercial aircraft. That is why we have the term "demilitarized."

And even if you did "re-arm" them, they would be completely outmatched unless you are going after civilian targets (which would be short lived).

Correct. I phrased that one poorly.

The easiest way to destroy the military is by terrorizing this country until our economy goes busts and the military runs out of money.

The Constitution is in no way obsolete and is the most important human document ever written. Millions have been sworn to defend it with their lives, and many have paid that price. SCOTUS has made some very wrong decisions in the past.

If that is what the civilians have, then yes they would do it. What other choices would they have? Some people are willing to die in order to protect and defend the Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic. Are you?
