“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” – Second Amendment

The founders were making two distinct and separate points in the Second Amendment of which neither was to be “infringed” upon.

POINT 1 - A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, shall not be infringed.

POINT 2 - The right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Those two separate and distinct God given rights is exactly what the founders were stating.

The people are the Militia, and there right to form said Militia shall not be infringed.

The people’s right to bear arms shall not be infringed.

End of story.

PERIOD

Bump for a clandestine militia


It was Jerry "Mad Dog" Shriver (SFC E-7)who said:
"No, no, I've got them right where I want them -- surrounded from the inside."

I know they intended to protect the right of the citizenry to keep and bear arms including firearms, but I wish to hell they had left that militia reference out or put it in a separate amendment.

And the word "regulated" does NOT mean laws to keep the militia in control. The word "regulated" in the context of the Second Amendment means equipped.

Don't think for a minute that we don't live in a "police state" and we are
just the sheeple

Actually, a wind up clock is "regulated " .it means in good working order.

"The meaning of the phrase "well-regulated" in the 2nd amendment

From: Brian T. Halonen <halonencsd.uwm.edu>

The following are taken from the Oxford English Dictionary, and bracket in time the writing of the 2nd amendment:

1709: "If a liberal Education has formed in us well-regulated Appetites and worthy Inclinations."


1714: "The practice of all well-regulated courts of justice in the world."

1812: "The equation of time ... is the adjustment of the difference of time as shown by a well-regulated clock and a true sun dial."

1848: "A remissness for which I am sure every well-regulated person will blame the Mayor."

1862: "It appeared to her well-regulated mind, like a clandestine proceeding."

1894: "The newspaper, a never wanting adjunct to every well-regulated American embryo city."

The phrase "well-regulated" was in common use long before 1789, and remained so for a century thereafter. It referred to the property of something being in proper working order. Something that was well-regulated was calibrated correctly, functioning as expected. Establishing government oversight of the people's arms was not only not the intent in using the phrase in the 2nd amendment, it was precisely to render the government powerless to do so that the founders wrote it."

Equipment helps, but training and discipline are key. It is the will to fight, the knowledge how, and the determination to follow through.

the only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker, is observation. all the same data is present for both. The rest, is understanding what you're seeing.
