Speaking on a conservative talk show, Tea Party favorite Sharron Angle, running for Senate in Nevada and hoping to unseat Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, suggested that — if Congress doesn’t get the Tea Party message — that some will be looking to what she called “Second Ammendment remedies.”
Here are some of her comments, quoted here by ScrippsNews:
She said the purpose of the right to bear arms is to check the federal government. But she stopped short of saying that she would support an armed uprising.
“Our Founding Fathers, they put that Second Amendment in there for a good reason, and that was for the people to protect themselves against a tyrannical government,” Angle told conservative talk show host Lars Larson in January. “In fact, Thomas Jefferson said it’s good for a country to have a revolution every 20 years. I hope that’s not where we’re going, but you know, if this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking toward those Second Amendment remedies.”
