    for some reason, a lot of folks think the founding fathers just threw in that "well regulated militia" part for shits and grins. that is was not german to WHAT FOLLOWS, AS FAR AS THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS, MEANING ARMS OF WAR, NOT JUST FIREARMS. they were literate. they knew what words meant. too bad so many gun nuts do not.

    District of Columbia v. Heller, case in which the U.S. Supreme Court on June 26, 2008, held (5–4) that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to possess firearms independent of service in a state militia and to use firearms for traditionally lawful purposes, including self-defense within the home. It was the first Supreme Court case to explore the meaning of the Second Amendment since United States v. Miller (1939).

    Case closed.

    The Brits were attacking America with some regularity in the beginning. We had citizen soldiers. . They fought to save the country. That is why they needed to be armed and REGULATED. They needed to be trained. Therefore in a militia. Things have changed. We are not fighting the Brits on our home turf. Guns are slaughtering Americans, about 100 a day. The 2nd should be removed and guns should only be in the hands of people who can prove a need.

    Here is the most anti-American post of the day. The “END GAME.” European style, very restrictive and very repressive gun control gun control.

    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    now, the left has always sided with the idea that it's only a right of a 'well regulated militia', which would be the states national guard.

    the left has never wanted to look at the founders arguments and beliefs in what the militia is, though.........mainly because it destroys their narrative...............well, it was factually destroyed today

    because, IF, a states national guard can be co-opted by the federal government at any time, then it's most certainly not the militia that guarantees the security of a free state.
