102. "Aimed.. at individuals?"

The second half was aimed, quite obviously, at individuals and corporations building extra-judicial armed groups..

You say it was "aimed" at individuals and other groups, but it actually says that those individuals and groups are NOT authorized to form a body of armed men (a militia). Like I said, this leads me to believe that it is a state militia provision which allows for self defence.

The plain meaning of our state amendment is: individuals may be armed..

Why do you say "be armed" and not "keep arms?"

Same misinterpetation problem you are having with the federal amendment.

Hang on, you can't post a state provision, that was enacted over a century later, which refers to each individual citizen defending himself and apply the same meaning to the Second Amendment.

...the militia is formed of the people, and therefore the people must be allowed to have arms.

You mean that the militia consists of individuals, therefore individuals must be allowed to own guns. But militiamen had a DUTY to serve AND to provide a musket for his militia service. A "right" for a militiaman to own a gun wasn't necessary to arm the militia. I mean, the AoC declares that every state will keep a sufficient quantity of arms and ammo' in public stores. So, the militia can be armed without a personal right to own a gun.
