Yeah, these activist judges also overlooked clearly written "well regulated militia".
Apparently you are not familiar with the English language as it was used in the 1700s. "Well regulated" meant "in good working order, well-organized".
There are two distinct and separate national militias in the US, the first is the "organized militia" which includes the National Guard. The second is the "unorganized militia" which consists of all able-bodied males between 17 and 45 and who are not already part of the organized militia or regular military and female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
10 U.S. Code 311 - Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are-
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
Or the letters that suggested mandatory standardized weapon distribution and mandatory military training for all (male) population. Clearly, we should go back all the way to 1800.
I'm down with that, except for the '1800' part. There's more than enough horse manure here on /., don't want any on my street, thanks. I'd love to have a government-provided M4 carbine with select-fire 3-round burst!
