    Their perceived right also extends to the militia formation they feel they are entitled to, well regulated by themselves
    that is NOT what "well regulated" meant in that context at that time.

    can we please, pretty please, retire that !@#$%& trope?  it does nothing but muddy the waters of this incredibly important debate.

    •  Aauuuuuuuugh! I'm not saying that's what it means (0+ / 0-)

      ... I'm saying that's what THEY think it means and most of the GC arguments as regards the 2nd seem to focus on the RKBA'ers "ignoring the 1st part.

      All I'm saying is that they actually embrace the 1st part for the reasons stated in my above comment and perhaps it's time we hold truth up to that side as well as just accusing them of ignorance of the 1st part.

      In other words, do American citizens in 2013 have the right to form militias unregulated by state of federal governments?
