In the beginning, there were the militias. In the South, they were also called the 'slave patrols,' and they were regulated by the states. 'Well-regulated Militias' kept the slaves in chains. That's why the Constitution emphasizes STATES' rights to them

Yes.

Essentially if every human being within humankind treated every other human being within humankind as being their equal, WHICH THEY ARE in every sense of the word, except for made up human bullsh$t, then there would be NO NEED FOR the 2nd Amendment to have been created, or exist today.

Well nothing has changed much. Unfortunately we are still slaves no matter what colour our skin has. Thanks.
For some reasons I cannot send any green stars to anybody.
One green star goes to BMutiny and the other to Darren.

Interesting, I didn't know that. But I guess I'm not the only one! The more we delve into history the bleaker it gets.

The operating system we're currently under, called Corporate Capitalism, where profit is the God to be idolized and pursued, doesn't allow for any compassion towards people, and certainly has no conscience towards one's fellow human beings.
