The Second Amendment says:
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.
The US Code defines militia as:
TITLE 10, Subtitle A, PART I, CHAPTER 13, § 311
§ 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32,
under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the
United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
So any male 17 to 45 is part of the unorganized militia, and if we remove sex and age discrimination...
Every citizen able to carry a weapon, 17 years of age and older, is a part of the unorganized militia.
Be all this as it may, maintaining a militia is an EXAMPLE of why the right to bear arms is our right.
And the amendment points out that an armed (unorganized) militia is necessary to the security of a free state.
Once infringement of any kind takes place, we can no longer secure a FREE state.
So I am worried about both parties - being as they clearly are the opposite sides of a two-headed counterfeit coin, being thrust into our collective
hand by a puppet media, the purchase of which is only one thing: NWO.
Anyway... As a person most closely affiliated with the Libertarians, I am avidly pro-2nd.
I hope this cleared a bit up for you. [smile]
