Please explain the following from The Constitution of the United States<quoted text>
Nothing about the Second Amendment is "opinion".
>the federal government has no authority over the militia
>all able bodied citizens are militia
>all militia may possess firearms
>the states may "regulate" militia but not ban firearm possession by the militia
>the states' authority to regulate means any organized militia operations are under the authority of a state government
>no private citizens can name themselves militia commanders or issue any kind of orders to militia or anyone else - that regulation has nothing to do with the right of militia to possess firearms
>the militia serve "at will" - any militia member may join or leave the militia at any time without obligation
>the sole regulation in my state is that no private militia may conduct public drills or operations, and that the state militia not be privately funded - none of those have anything to do with the militia's right to possess firearms
Final word - the feds have NO authority over militia, and the states may regulate but NOT BAN the possession of firearms by militia.
To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;
To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;
It certainly seems that the feds have some authority over the militia under certain circumstances...
