From the time of its inception, the military played a decisive role in the history of the United States.

Founders were suspicious of a permanent military force and not until the outbreak of World War II did a large standing army become officially established.

What "militia" you are writing about?
The militia is the people. Title 10 sets up both the national guard and the militia. At the start of WW2 people were told to get their guns and come to the beach to defend against the expected invasion. You are in the Militia if you are between 18 and 45 or 65 if you have had previous military training. Check it out :)

It's not the level-headed Americans buying them that's driving the prices up - it's the crazed paranoid gunowners that are snatching up all the guns and ammunition - your arguement is pretty much invalid.
Buying up all the guns and ammunitions is certainly a sad facet, to the unbased fear of our government taking away their guns. I find it so depressing that the mindset of so many is that desperate and uninformed?

The founding fathers wrote many times about the right to bear arms. The word flintlock was not used, however, many people used the argument that since they only had flintlocks at the time of the Amendment, then that is the only arm that they meant.
We had just won our independence from a foreign government, and there was still a threat of another attempt to subjugate us. Which did come to pass. So, they also wrote about the subject of an armed populace being an effective force to prevent a foreign government from achieving that goal.
Here is a site that has mostly quotes written during the early days of our nation.

That is correct. As George Mason said the Militia is the people

This is being driven by the fallacy that the government is out to screw you. Conservatives talk out of both sides of their azz - on one side they curse the government's interference of their rights, and at the same time don't want their sacred entitlement programs wiped out either. They really don't know what they want- hence the paranoic behavior.

Unbased? The governor of New York called for confiscation. The congressman from Connecticut called for a background check to buy ammo. I don't put anything past them

The government is out to take the money I earned and give it to someone else. From each according his ability to each according his need. The government can't give anything to one person they don't take from another.

you don't suppose that a world war was at large and that the US was attacked and invaded...

The delegates of the Constitutional Convention (the founding fathers/framers of the United States Constitution) under Article 1; section 8, clauses 15 and 16 of the federal constitution, granted Congress the power to "provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia," as well as, and in distinction to, the power to raise an army and a navy. The US Congress is granted the power to use the militia of the United States for three specific missions, as described in Article 1, section 8, clause 15: "To provide for the calling for of the militia to execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections, and repel invasions."

You talk like a 5th grader that's never experienced taxes before. What planet are you from? Texas?

The government requires money to run its day to day business. The road you drove on to get to work this morning (my apologies if you're a bum) is paid for by taxes. Try driving your Bentley on a dirt road.

You take a lot for granted.

Seriously. I saw the government burn out about 40 men women and children in Waco. I saw the government shoot a boy down and shoot a woman in the head and put out a shoot to kill order at Ruby Ridge.

A Socialist welfare state with cradle to grave government care. It feed your kids 2 meals a day. It give welfare so people can buy booze and cigarettes. I work for my money
