"A well regulated militia"--what does that mean? When you look up the definition of militia it refers to well trained personel who can be called up in an emergency:1. soldiers who are also civilians: an army of soldiers who are civilians but take military training and can serve full-time during emergencies2.reserve military force: a reserve army that is not part of the regular armed forces but can be called up in an emergency
And so on...it is really hard to fathom that this can be construed as giving the right to any fool without training to willy-nilly purchase a large cache of guns and ammunition. (Unless you are in some way profiting from the sales of arms).
Why not require all gun purchasers to undergo at the minimum, sufficient training to earn a certificate and to prove their competency to get a license; with an agreement to be called upon during an emergency much as a national guardsman would. And why on this earth does a civilian need military grade weapons in a home with children?
