At ease, militia members

The Spokesman-Review

What’s this poppycock on the Second Amendment?

A “well-regulated militia” DOES refer to government regulations and membership in an official military. The militia of the Revolutionary War served in units, under officers, and received government pensions for their service, all recorded in official government documents anyone with a computer and a rudimentary knowledge of the Internet can see for themselves.
