Comment: We are the militia!

(See in situ)


We are the militia!

Aren't we (able bodied citizens) the militia?

Isn't that the entire purpose of the 2nd amendment in the first place(hint read the first sentence) so we can form our OWN ARMY independent from the government? It says nothing about hunting or personal protection, it says its there for the purposes of arming a citizen army(militia).

Shouldn't we be armed as such?

Heck you could make a better case that according to the actual wording of the 2nd amendment, citizens should be allowed to own any personal arms to train with that are used by the current military and police than a hunting rifle of the type not used by the professional forces.
