    It's the truth. Disarming the populace invites tyranny. In fact, I believe that disarming the public, in effect, creates tyranny. Good link.

    Good article. I noticed he mentioned the Uniform Militia Act of 1792. Is this law still in effect? Or has it been repealed?

    Interesting. Thanks, SoMo. But I wonder if it's still technically considered compulsory for the unorganized militia to keep and bear arms. Even though we have to supply it ourselves.

    Yes, I'm looking for some ancient and little-known law that forces us to own firearms. Wouldn't that be great?
