Re: 5 year old given rifle as gift, kills 2 year old sister

^ A revolutionary army, not a standing military. That's how I interpret it.

In any case, since domestic security is clearly not the purview of the military, I should amend (pardon the pun ) my earlier statement. There was no such thing as a police department when the Second Amendment was written. Therefore the militia was the only method available to ensure order. That's why guns were intended to be available - to equip that militia, to keep order, to prevent chaos. It wasn't intended to CAUSE chaos, which is what so many gun nuts want.
