The right to arms, the right to protection

Dear Editor:

I have watched the unarmed citizens of Hong Kong protest the continued overreach of a tyrannical Chinese government for weeks. The governments response has predictably escalated to the point that some student protesters have armed themselves with archery equipment. To avoid this type of thing happening in America, I think it would be appropriate that we as citizens have a specific right to arm ourselves in a manner significant enough to stem violent response from our own government. Perhaps this could be enshrined in our Constitution.

Just a thought mind you, but we never know when our government could be used against us.

Semper Armatus.
