2nd Amendment: 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.
There are a handful of terms that, when used, immediately elicit images and dialogue inside the average person’s head of fringe, or extreme behavior. I submit that one word which falls into that category is the word Militia. For many, the term Militia brings up memories of groups of men who paint their face and dress in camo while running through the woods shooting at each other espousing anti-government slogans. That may, in some cases, be what the Militia has devolved into in modern times, however that persona is very far afield from the original Militia who used to inhabit this land in Colonial times. No, the idea of a Militia is not fringe, and yes, a Militia is Constitutional, as illustrated above. Would a well-regulated Militia solve our problem with lawlessness in America? How about the “Death by Cop” phenomenon sweeping across the nation? One man, Edwin Vieira, Jr., thinks it would.
