Response to ellisonz (Reply #24)

27. So how do you reconcile keeping militia-useful weapons with public safety?

 

However, this does not usurp the clear intent of the Constitution to provide for the public safety.

So since we agree that the second amendment is about using weapons in a militia, and thus the people need to keep and bear weapons suitable for such use, how do you reconcile that with public safety?

Seems to me if you want the people to be armed with military-grade weapons appropriate for infantry use in a militia you are going to have to give up a little public safety for that freedom.
