93. Nope I got it
Edited on Thu Aug-28-03 08:29 AM by BullDozer
No where in US v Miller does it say that the Second Amendment only applies to a collective right. Please show exactly where you think it does.

It does most certainly say, since you are basing your entire argument on the word militia and you refuse to believe evidence that has already been shown to you numerous times that the militia is composed of the people.

"The signification attributed to the term Militia appears from the debates in the Convention, the history and legislation of Colonies and States, and the writings of approved commentators. These show plainly enough that the Militia comprised all males physically capable of acting in concert for the common defense. 'A body of citizens enrolled for military discipline.' And further, that ordinarily when called for service these men were expected to appear bearing arms supplied by themselves and of the kind in common use at the time."
