In the 2nd amendment it authorized the creation of a well armed militia. When the Constitution was written a Militia was the word used for Military.

The coast guard?... I mean unless Militia are taking kick backs from wall street bankers and Halliburton, I don't really think there's such a thing as a corrupt militia, they aren't winning any no bid contracts put it that way.

Nobody is going to "rise" up against the Government in revolt and with the "few" exceptions in Michigan ( who illegally had automatic weapons, explosives and made "threats of bodily harm" ) the greatest majority of private Militias are law abiding citizens who believe in the United States. NOT necessarily the current... More
