    (a) The following persons are exempt from militia duty:
    (1) The Vice President.

    In 18th Century usage, "regulate" could also mean the same as "equip".

    The manner in which we as a people have been led like sheep by a sheperd through the all entangling web of deception is nothing short of genius. A plan so well orchestrated that the very notion, no matter how well conceived, that we as a populous would be so blind as too aimlessly follow into that great abyss of servitude eats at the pit of my stomach. The militia's non-existance as an organized band of brothers united against a common cause is a testament to the hiearchy of this United States Federal Government and their outwardly obvious never ending campaign too tighten the reigns ever more until we are without breath. For they have underestimated our unwavering commitment to forever uphold the Constitution and all of her liberties contained within. A few good men per every hundred, this fight, this struggle between good and evil that knows of no bounds our valor be infinite and our vision be clear. It is thee for whom the bell tolls, let freedom ring.-comengetit

    The main focus should always be, "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." The preamble part only describes "Why?".

    Death to Tyrants!!!
    Lev 26:14-39

    Those who would offer any interpretation that would relegate Amendment II to "relic" status of a bygone era are blatantly stating that the remainder of the Bill of Rights isn't worth a damn, either.
