Kurt Hofmann's insurrectionist history lesson

For the sake of this discussion, let's forget the rather obvious fact that this nation was born through the "insurrectionist idea," and that the Founding Fathers were none too shy about "refreshing the tree of liberty" when necessary. Never mind those "old, dead, white guys"--we're now to think of ourselves as having become much more sophisticated and "progressive" in the centuries since the Founding Era.
Kurt Hofmann takes Josh Horwitz, of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence (CSGV) and Brady Campaign's Dennis Henigan to task regarding the reason for the Second Amendment - to resist tyranny. Seems like their interpretation doesn't jive with history and Kurt was kind enough to point it out at Resisting tyranny: Neither a new idea, nor an invention of the 'gun lobby'
