MD: Time to 'well regulate' guns

The amendment is short and to the point: "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 focus is on the valid role of state militias such as the Maryland National Guard to be prepared to defend the state from a tyrannical federal or outside power.

Such militias are legal and may not be banned. But even so, the very crystal clear adjective, "well-regulated," is unmistakably front and center. Well-regulated. As in government gun control. It's not just good old common sense, it's Constitutionally required. End of story, National Rifle Association. Pack up your loose marbles and start playing by the rules!

"(T)he very crystal clear adjective, 'well-regulated,' is unmistakably front and center. Well-regulated. As in government gun control. It's not just good old common sense, it's Constitutionally required."

Wrong. So I guess it's NOT "UNmistakable...."
"Well regulated militia" meant well trained, and up to standard, in the venacular of the day.
And, moreover, it's NOT "Constitutionally required." The right to keep & bear arms exists independantly of militia service -- hence the phrase "right OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms."
