It's pretty clear that the purpose is to have a
well regulated militia. So why don't we do that any more (it used to be

we should. I'm thinking light duty for fat old men like me---meet up a
couple times a year and show you can hit the side of a barn, control
your shit, and can follow simple instructions. If you can't do that,
you probably should not own a firearm, anyway. But the addition of
basic discipline might go a long way toward preventing many tragedies
caused by careless and ignorant gun owners.
Besides, what red

Texas militia a couple Saturdays a year? A few beers afterwards...
Note I'm talking about the militia, not a militia--big difference!
