I'm asking you, and any other supporter of the 2nd Amendment, why no concerted effort has been made to ensure the execution of this important charge of civic duty - i.e. a well-regulated militia - in the manner stipulated by the Constitution. Or do you believe that private gun ownership is the only requirement necessary for a well-regulated militia? Furthermore, do you believe those who are otherwise able but do not own guns are failing in their civic duty to protect the State?

I suspect it'll be all over the news.
