Re: “Reader: Aren't nuclear weapons arms?

"OK Dave H. Since you want to cite the Militia Act of 1790, when are you called to muster?" - Dave T.

Doesn't matter. The right to arms belongs to the people. Participation in a militia is not a prerequisite to the right. The Militia Act I cited simply gives an idea as to what "arms" consist of and has no bearing on who has the right.


"Hint: Look up the Militia Act of 1903. It states who the Well Regulated Militia is."

Nope. It states who the organized and reserve militia is. The term "well regulated" appears nowhere in it. But again, the right is not reserved to the militia, it belongs to the people.

Another hint: It's not you. Or Holmes. Or Richard Nascak. Or Jay Whynotaskme. Or Oath Keepers. Or the idiot at the Bundy Ranch pointing his gun at BLM agents.
