    I love it when people (not saying you were Klown) think that the 2nd Amendment is only to help us keep a militia and that this only applies to people in one. I don't believe that's all it's for, but that's just fine and dandy if you live in SC.

    This is a direct quote from a statute in SC.

    "25-1-60. Composition and classes of militia.

    ARTICLE 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS

    The militia of this State consists of all able-bodied persons over seventeen years of age who are: citizens of the United States residing within this State; citizens of the United States bound by law, lawful order, or contract to serve in the militia or military forces of this State; or persons who have declared their intention to become citizens of the United States and are bound by law, lawful order, or contract to serve in the militia or military forces of this State. The militia is divided into three classes: the National Guard, the organized militia, and the unorganized militia."


    Therefore, everyone over 17 residing in SC who are citizens of the USA are in the militia.


    See, there are actually good reasons to live here that pop up from time to time.

    As for those who think that we can only have weapons from that era, or only have weapons that the military now has, that's a load of horse hockey. If that were the intent of the 2nd Amendment, it would say so. And, I really loved that argument about the 1st Amendment needing to be repealed because of the Internet - really throws them off their game to hear that one, I bet.
