Political scientist Rudy Rummel estimates that 262 million people were murdered by their own government during the last century -- that is 2.6 million per year. This includes genocide, the murder of people for political reasons, and mass murder.
That Second Amendment is looking better all the time. It's the best curb on government turning lethal against its own citizens.
It's amazing how some governments, like Turkey's, haven't come to terms with its role in genocide. A writer there mentioned it in an interview and was prosecuted but was let off on a technicality. Yesterday's Writer's Almanac by Garrison Keillor covered Orhan Pamuk.

The 2nd amendment was put in to allow citizens to protect themselves from tyrannical government.
Fascist and Communist have not allowed private ownership of arms. The results are clear.
"Some guys play in all-star games, some guys don't. I don't know who picks all those all-star teams. In all honesty, I don't know who picks the combine, for that matter," Belichick said. "How does (Miami-Ohio offensive lineman Brandon) Brooks not get invited to the combine? How did Vollmer not get invited to the combine? I don't know. We can't really worry about that. We just have to try to evaluate them the best we can."
As for the 2nd Amendment... it's irrelevent to this topic. The US government has way more, and way better weapons than you can ever have. Unless every citizen everywhere stands up at the same time to fight, the government would win 100 out of 100 times.
