“Gun-rights supporters offer a variety of arguments—some of them admirable in intent, others of them anti-democratic, even dangerous. While my dad saw gun owners as an army of patriots prepared to defend against a coup, today’s gun-rights activists emphasize what they see as threats from within—lawful immigrants, welfare recipients, ‘socialists’ in Congress. More ominously, a vocal subculture has publicly embraced Americans’ right to confront our democratically elected government by force of arms. This insurrectionist ideology—with its anti-government conspiracy theories and apocalyptic soothsaying—is standard fare at gun shows, in the blogosphere, and within some gun-rights groups.”
