Actually, who says that you can't make D-I-Y missiles, chemical weapons and the like? You of course can, and so the rest of the article is bullshit. Now, the people who say that you can't are people who want you to be afraid of the kochs, and want you to believe that the government is bad, but the koch are worse, so you should thank the government from protecting you from the kochs after all. And funnily enough these people who claim to be against the koch are actually the kochs' best friends because the kochs couldn't do what they do if the government didn't back them. > > That's ok, we have some patriotic citizens who can. > > Who? > > The same billionaires who already own the government, that's who. > > So what do they want to "resist?" > > I could only see them wanting to resist checks on their own power. > > So, if the Second Amendment implies a right to resist the government, > then that would mean that we need our billionaire friends to start > stockpiling these weapons now.
