    Well it's just commie propaganda, at the time slaves were considered property, not people, or even citizens for that matter. So any intimation that slave owners feared slaves getting any rights is ludicrous.

    What the States feared was a government that would become like the monarchs in Europe and the militia phrase was to protect the States, so they would never be powerless against an out of control central government.

    What can you expect from a paid poster, he's doesn't worry himself with facts.

    In some circles, 'well regulated' means any drunken asshole can bring whatever he/she/it/ mutant wants wherever he/she/it/mutants wants'. Literacy tests seem necessary, same with voting, frankly. Ownership should be limited to those who can legally vote at the least, and those who can legally vote limited to those who can pass basic civics tests.

    I don't know if that's true, but it should be. Real conservatives should disavow that ruling.

    You need a miltia so the dems can't disarm the reps. Once the dems get the reps guns...bye-bye.
