mross - "Why do you need to have an assault weapon? And who says it's your 'legal' right to have one? The 2nd Amendment speaks to a well regulated militia and the right to bear arms, so if you want to purchase what was intended in those days by the Framers who wrote that Amendment, then go ahead and get yourself a musket and join the well-regulated militia, it's called the U.S. Military." Define assault weapon.

It doesn't matter how "assault weapon" is defined. And We the People don't have to justify why we need automatic or semi-automatic weapons. The 2nd Amendment says our right to keep and bear arms "shall not be infringed."

Gun grabbers like mross need to read Federalist #29. In it James Madison explains what the Founders meant by a "well-regulated militia". In it he clearly states that the "militia" should not be run by the federal gov't and that it should only meet and train "once or twice a year." There is NO federal "militia" that meets this description and there is NO basis in the Constitution or in the Federalist Papers for the gun grabbers' claim the opening phrase of the 2nd Amendment justifies violating its concluding phrase.

Sorry - the U.S. Military answers to the federal government - not the people of a state or region.
