Oh, now, you can have guns only if you belong to a nationally created militia: Wrong! The records have been examined and translated into what the old wording would mean applied to today’s situation. today. Applied to today. the court assigns to us the obligation to assume that every person is basically eligible. In colonial days it would have been every man in a locale would belong to the local militia. Translated to now: that would be every person in the country who isn’t a clear and present danger to his or her neighbors.

They have now definitively held that the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that weapon for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. Moreover, this right applies not just to the federal government, but to states and municipalities as well.
