  •  ^^To bear arms is to be armed AND ready. (0+ / 0-)

    Being armed is not enough.
    Something more is required to be ready.

    How can a person be ready to use a gun for lawful conflict with another person if they have had no training in firearms mechanics, or in safe storage and safe carrying practices, or in the laws governing the use of lethal force.

    To be ready one must be trained.

    It has nothing to do with serving in a militia; it has everything to do with being individually ready to defend oneself.

    Note: lawful offensive use of a firearm is limited to the military and the police."
