Shot With His Own Gun

Paul Fell, 4/16/13:
So the Second Amendment -- which allows Americans to carry projectile weapons of some variety, for some purposes (subject to a lot of arguing about the scope of both) -- actually ties the iconic representative of America up, so that someone else can shoot us all in the head.

Who, precisely, is the "someone else" in this scenario? North Korea? And how does the Second Amendment ties us up with relation to something else? Surely Fell means to give Uncle Sam a big gun that he's pointing at himself?
