great opportunity to kill two issues with one gun

mi·li·tia n.
1. An army composed of ordinary citizens rather than professional soldiers.
2. A military force that is not part of a regular army and is subject to call for service in an emergency.
3. The whole body of physically fit civilians eligible by law for military service.

I’ve often thought the following words are the most important(and most ignored) part of the ‘Second Amendment’- “A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State…”

As I continue to hear the concern/debate over reinstatement of the ‘draft’, I don’t see where a problem exists. Just declare an “emergency” and call up all gunowners (at least those who profess to stand by the 2nd Amendment) for a few months military duty.

This will help in two areas-
First, enough able-bodied people will be found to fill whatever gaps exist in the military that a draft won’t be necessary.
Second, after a few 20 mile forced night marches with full packs, so many gun-toting bubbas will be swearing off the 2nd Amendment (and probably swearing at the NRA) that gun control will easier to deal with.

Remember, guns don’t make a militia, people do.

I’m a gunowner and occasional hunter but I’m anti-NRA. We need more gun control.


About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
