Wikipedia: “Democide is a term revived and redefined by the political scientist R. J. Rummel as ‘the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder.’ Rummel created the term as an extended concept to include forms of government murder that are not covered by the term genocide, and it has become accepted among other scholars. . . . In the 20th century, democide passed war as the leading cause of non-natural death (according to Rummel).”
Get that? According to Rummel, during the 20th century, more people were killed by their own government than were killed by a foreign government in the midst of a genuine war.
Thus, exactly as I’ve argued in previous posts supporting the 2nd Amendment, the principle reason for the 2nd Amendment’s right to “keep and bear arms” is to protect We the People from despotism and even murder committed by our own government.
