Right on, Montana!

And let us not forget:

Since “The People” in the First Amendment means The People,
and “the People” in the Fourth Amendment means The People,
and “the People” in the Ninth Amendment means The People,
and “the People” in the Tenth Amendment means The People,
there can be no rational claim that “the People” in the Second Amendment (ratified in 1791) means the National Guard (created by an Act of Congress in 1903).

Exactly. Furthermore, since the Constitution, in Section 8, already empowers the Congress with the powers for “organizing, arming, and discipling the Milia...” it would be ridiculous to think that the Second Amendment, adopted several years later, simply REPEATED the right of only a militia to bear arms.

No, “The right of the people” is what was clearly intended.

The antis are losing the legal battle, and the battle of common sense, when arguing that 2A is a collective right.

So, they are now attempting to regulate 2A into nothingness, with their proposals to tax ammo, microstamp cartridges, etc.

Eternal vigilance against the lefties is necessary. Thank goodness for GOA and NRA.
