I think you are partially right. The stop gap measure we have to defend our rights is guns. We can try to fight (no violence) for our other rights. But we cannot let them take our guns, they are our last line of defense against totalitarianism.
It’s not that everything else is icing, just that we have a chance to get every other right back as long as guns are in place. So yes, guns do need to be our line. Don’t give them up.
We stand together because otherwise, we don't stand at all.
