  •  Two completely different issues hon. (0+ / 0-)

    The Ratification Documents, that I sourced show the State Of New Hampshire believed it was a individual right the newly created central government must be prevented from abrogating.

    The second issue is their own State Constitution.  While it may lead to support their beliefs here, they did not "tie that right exclusively to militia service" and even if they did, it's a red herring and meaningless in this context because each State could do anything they wanted.

    New Hampshire made clear the central government could not deny that right to any individual.

    -7.62; -5.95 The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.~Tesla

    •  Your manner of addressing me is a surrender (0+ / 0-)

      of your credibility. I accept it.

      The issue is your absurd statement that the right never applied to a collectively. You were wrong to say it and are even more wrong in trying to defend it.
