The Militia are not soldiers. They, like a "Posse" are from the population. When called on, they BRING THEIR OWN GUNS. Imagine banning the Militia to own AR rifles, which has an effective range of 500 yards and bring only pistols with an effective range of 100 yards. The Militia would be wiped out before they'd got within 100 yards. But.....the only good point would be making politicians walk point.A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
