    So, you still didn't answer what a militia is. You obviously don't know what one is. When the constitution was written, discussing the militia, they were definitely referring to a force of citizens who were self supplied, including their own weapons. They are not professional, they don't get issued stuff. They have their own stuff.

    And they were part of regulated and trained militia groups. And their purpose was specifically to be prepared to defend the US if needed because, again, we not only didn't have a massive standing national army, but having a massive standing national army was considered a danger in and of itself. Obviously that no longer applies, does it?

    Sounds to me like they wanted them equipped with the best stuff they could get their hands on. And have plenty of ammo to blast the opposition along with backup weapons. No shit they didn't mention auto or semi-auto rifles.

    Der, dem people over dere with dem crawsbows ain't rite! They's posed to be usin spears, gaddamnit!
    Question for the pro-transgender, gender fluid, anyone can be whatever they want to be, people out there: Should a male be granted a combat license to enter a MMA fight to pummel females because he 'identifies' as a woman?

    So you're also going to ignore that the reason for the second amendment was that the founding fathers didn't want to have a massive standing national army and thus planned on the US relying on militiamen for home defense, and how the fact that we do now have that standing army completely negates the entire reason that it was put in to begin with?

    Are you going to ignore what the American Revolution was about? It was about us rebelling against a tyrannical government. The 2nd Amendment doesn't exist to protect the US from other nations, it exists to protect the people from the Government.
