did he make being armed dependent on a militia, or a militia dependent on bearing arms?
"A free people ought not only to be armed but disciplined; to which end a Uniform and well digested plan is requisite"
i guess he didn't say 'prerequisite', which would no doubt say people having guns is dependent on militias.
but what if there is no militia? couldn't we infer from him that there isn't necessarily a right to a gun?
here is a founding father who said the militia of the founding days can change...
" I ask who are the militia? They consist now of the whole people, except a few public officers. But I cannot say who will be the militia of the future day. "
it seems fair to say if there is no militia there is no right to a gun
