Words have meaning "...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...."

I bring this up as a posting because the Washington DC gun ban will be the subject of a Supreme Court decision this week.

But the U.S. Constitution's 2nd Amendment verbatim reads:

"...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...."


I don't care who you are, those words can only be interpreted to mean one thing: "...the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed...."

When the United States is defeated and dismantled then those words will be meaningless, until that time the Constitution of the United States is the law of the land.

Conversely, the first step in defeating and dismantling the United States will be to render provisions of our Constitution illegal and / or meaningless.

If the definition of militia becomes the liberal argument against "...the People's right...." then it becomes important to understand what the definition of militia is. According to Wikipedia:

The term militia is commonly used today to refer to a military force composed of ordinary[1] citizens to provide defense, emergency law enforcement, or paramilitary service, in times of emergency; without being paid a regular salary or committed to a fixed term of service. Legal and historical meanings of militia include:

-Defense activity or service, to protect a community, its territory, property, and laws.

-The entire able-bodied male (and perhaps female) population of a community, town, county, or state, available to be called to arms.

-A subset of these who actually respond to a call-up, regardless of legal obligation.

-A private, non-government force, not necessarily directly supported or sanctioned by its government.

By the way, it is important to note that 8,400 murders have occurred in DC since gun ownership has been banned in the nations capital. Apparently criminals and murderers don't obey gun laws......imagine that!

Elsewhere, studies have shown that serious violence and murders decrease in localities where legal citizens are allowed to possess defensive weapons.
