    Let me help you understand. Let's make a hypothetical Civil War example.
    Joe Smith, who fought with the Illinois 63rd Militia, brought his personal rifle when he joined the militia. The Illinois 63rd Militia was an organized militia. Joe was a part of an organized militia after he joined the Illinois 63rd. But he owned his gun and the 2nd amendment guarantees his right to keep & bear arms.

    And Joe, because he owned a gun was practiced in it use and care, thus requiring far less training and resources when called upon.

    He was well regulated. That was the whole and entire difference.

    He was well regulated when he served. Before that he was not. That is what I have been telling you since the beginning. The right to keep and bear arms is his, not the militia’s.

    Unorganized militias were Infringed, as People; by well regulated militias of the United States; just like it says in our Second Amendment.

    No they were not. Citizens with privately owned firearms joined militias and fought to bring the confederate states back into the Union. The militias are regulated, as our 2nd amendment says. Private citizen’s right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed, just like our 2nd amendment says.

    The entire South took up arms against the federal govt. It had nothing to do with the 2nd amendment whatsoever.

    Yes, it did. The unorganized militia does not have an uninfringed right to keep and bear Arms, when it involves the security of our free States or the Union.

    Nonsense. The South was not attacked because their militia was unorganized.

    And none of the militias that defeated the South were organized before the war started.
