    I am sure a vast majority of the pepl eon here might have seen this article but here it is.

    Now they "meaning the anti's" have always looked at the meaning of the words in the second amendment but Idoubttheyhave looked at the words when one defines militia: This was taken from Wikipedia

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

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

    3. In its original sense, militia meant "the state, quality, condition, or activity of being a fighter or warrior." It can be thought of as "combatant activity", "the fighter frame of mind", "the militant mode", "the soldierly status", or "the warrior way".[38]

    In this latter usage, a militia is a body of private persons who respond to an emergency threat to public safety, usually one that requires an armed response, but which can also include ordinary law enforcement or disaster responses. The act of bringing to bear arms contextually changes the status of the person, from peaceful citizen, to warrior citizen. The militia is the sum total of persons undergoing this change of state


    maybe this should be looked at as well.

    Just my two-cents and something that should be looked at if it already hasn't.
