You, sir, are quite correct.One more time....it the 2nd Amendment simply authorizes armed militias, why is it in the Bill of Rights, the individual liberties section.
Militias do NOT equate to the National Guard, they were originally state guards...whose services were loaned out to the national government as deemed appropriate.
The Founding Fathers had a deep seated fear of standing armies. They had seen what had happened in France, Austria, Prussia, and other European countries from where our fellow countrymen had emigrated.Why is there ANY mention of a MILITIA in the 2A at all?
Does it serve any useful purpose about the individual right to bear arms?
I think the writers of the 2A screwed-up and just caused confusion.
Of course, they are the forefathers of the NRA rule books.....

Lotsa shorts & loose connections, you might say.A liberal may read all the facts put forth and get a totally different perspective.
The liberal brain is wired differently than a conservative brain.
Intelligence, ability, and common sense did not exist until these people popped out of mommy. They are arrogant enough they can ignore history and have convinced themselves...'we're so smart, we'll make it work this time'.Lotsa shorts & loose connections, you might say.
Libs are perfectly capable of comprehending the meaning, intent, and inherent genious of what is written. The problem lies in their deep-seated narcissism & myopia.
They refuse to accept a reality that does not conform to their grand designs, even if that reality has been proven superior to their failed socialistic agenda.
In other words, they're idiots.
