I could swear that I read on this board somewhere that when the founders wrote "A well-regulated militia," they weren't talking about laws, but I dont' trust my memory. One of my lifetime friends (who's a conservative, but also a lifelong chicago area native) sees yesterday's attack in AZ as a failure of the 2A, and says that with a standing army, etc, we no longer need individual militia members, who aren't "regulated" - but when he uses "regulated" he means legislated. I need calm, coherent, factual information to share with my friend. Oh, I also need to know that hollow-point ammo isn't "cop-killer" ammo. He seems to think it is. What else could he think? He's from the Chicago area.
