One of the more outlandish was a statement she made during a radio interview
last January in which she floated the idea that the public would bring down an
out-of-control Congress with “Second Amendment remedies.”
In an interview she gave with conservative talk show host Bill Manders earlier
in the campaign, Angle conspicuously floated, once again, “Second Amendment
remedies” to deal not just with the supposedly ever-growing “tyrannical” U.S.
government, but to replace her now general election opponent: Majority Leader
Harry Reid (D-Nev.)
Angle: I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep
and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who’s in the military.
This not for law enforcement. This is for us. And in fact when you read that
Constitution and the founding fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny. This
is for us when our government becomes tyrannical…
Manders: If we needed it at any time in history, it
might be right now.
Angle: Well it’s to defend ourselves. And you know, I’m
hoping that we’re not getting to Second Amendment remedies. I hope the vote will
be the cure for the Harry Reid problems.
And what’s the point of the Huffington Post in regards to this? I don’t see what the problem is. I hope we can vote our way out of the current crisis too. But the government starts rounding up dissenters to ship them off to work camps then “Second Amendment remedies” may be the only viable option.
This reminds me of something I heard at the NRA convention. I was told, “Just like Ted (Nugent) was telling me yesterday. You and I won’t have to worry about getting into an armed conflict with the government because they will pick up us on the first pass.” I’m not sure I find that comforting.
