"SCOTUS Rejects Challenge to Semi-Auto and Magazine Ban."
The function of the militia, defined as “all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense [and] bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time,” was — and is — to field citizen soldiers. And these citizens bore arms that were suitable for that purpose, “ordinary military equipment” intended to be taken into “common defense” battles. The militia did not assemble on the green bearing clubs and spears. They came with the intent to match and best a professional military threat. That’s the inheritance those who would rule don’t want the people even finding out about, let alone claiming.
