The Right to Keep and Bear Arms

“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.”

So, let’s enact a federal law that requires all gun owners to be members of their State’s Militia. They can keep and bear arms all they want, but the keeping will be in a locker in the Militia’s armory and the bearing will be whenever the Militia is called to action.

    • And nothing will ever happen so long as one of the two major political parties in this country refuse to even discuss the issue. I frequently state, verbatim, what I would like to see happen. I want lawmakers to discuss ways to make it harder for criminals and psychopaths to legally purchase firearms and ammunition. I try to word it exactly the same every time. Do you know the result?

      I am invariably treated to cries of “GUN GRABBER” “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” and “IF YOU OUTLAW GUNS ONLY OUTLAWS WILL HAVE GUNS”. So long as that continues our society is doomed to constantly increasing numbers of shootings that just might be preventable if we could just have a national discussion of the issue among adults.
