'Well regulated militia' does not mean gun control

Feb 24, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

Common errors in thinking have characterized the argument among progressives that the term "well regulated militia" as contained in the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution mandates national gun control laws and various restrictions.

If the gun control groups really want to press the "militia" angle to gun ownership, then they are going to have to acknowledge that most able bodied males are members of the unorganized militia per 10 USC 311. Of course that would make it legal to disarm women which perhaps is their endgame.

But Biden suggests women should have a shotgun to shoot in the air and chase off the bad boogie man. LOL
And actually discharging a firearm into the air in a residential area would be a violation of law in most jurisdictions. I wonder if anyone has told old Joe that...?

How can a govt regulated militia be neccessary to the security of a FREE state ?

If a militia is regulated by Govt then it will have little to do with freedom (and much to do with enslavement).

In the terminology used at the time, "well-regulated" was in reference to the training of the militia in combat tactics, equipment and weapons...and that training was to be done thru the officers appointed. In other words, training them to be a fighting force...not just an armed mob.

I know you, and I know you have only an average IQ, so I'll explain this again.

My question involved sarcasm.

My g/f just told me "If you ever tell me to just shoot a shotgun in the air to scare off an intruder...You are single buddy" lol

Biden can tell my g/f that ...$10 says he is spitting teeth 2 seconds later. ;p

I know you...I know how you are...I know you have a below average IQ...

So my answer did not involve sarcasm.
