Sic Semper Tyrannis.

Why do we have the Second Amendment?
It wasn't for hunting or entertainment.
No, it was created,
If conditions dictated,
To take down a tyrannical government.

Last December, I sent this limerick to Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine. Then I asked them two questions: do you agree with this limerick? and won't you please help clean up the Justice Department? Both men wrote back without answering my two questions. "Thus always to tyrants" is a translation of the Latin phrase, sic semper tyrannis, adopted by Virginia in 1776. The state flag depicts a victor standing with a foot on a tyrant's chest followed by those words. John Wilkes Booth supposedly shouted them after he shot Lincoln.
