Yes, it is intended to provide an armed force for state governments to use. Yes, it is intended to provide a means for the nation to repell invaders. It's also for private citizens to defend themselves, their homes, and their families. And what is a community but our greatly extended family?

What if there is nothing or nobody to blame? Would that make this inexplicable horror unbearable?

What if we didn't rush to judgement?...
