Just as Republicans, gun owners and Democrats are coming together to demand action on gun safety- SCOTUS just ruled for the opposite and rolled back +200 years of jurisprudence. Americans want domestic tranquility and a well regulated militia not a SCOTUS bought by the NRA.
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
Bruen decision is a product of cherry-picking textualists who ignore the Second-Amendment’s militia clause and the meaning of “arms” at time the language was adopted.
I've read Scalia's opinion in DC v. Heller at least a dozen times, and every time I'm more confused about why the Militia Clause of the Second Amendment doesn't count.
Americans who support the second amendment and the constitution do not support eviscerating 200+ years of jurisprudence and our domestic tranquility. This decision is not in line with the second amendment because it is not in line with a well regulated militia.

Gun ownership was intended to be under the structure of a “well regulated militia.” Clarence Thomas, John Roberts, Neil Gorsuch, Amy Coney Barrett and Brent Kavanaugh are right wing, radical, activist judges. #SCOTUSisCompromised https://t.co/CVIgol0Yrs
OK, the NRA thinks we should mount a machine gun on the top of each university frat house and a pillbox on the ground floor, but we really aren't ready for that. A civilized society has sensible gun laws which is what a "well regulated Militia" is supposed to be all about.
Thanks to new evidence found from @jennycohn1
we now know that Rachel Powell, a PA woman w/ a "prominent role in the violent attack on the Capitol" also participated "in the July 4, 2020 'militia' occupation of Gettysburg."
Please read 🧵 🔽🔥
The right to carry a musket while in an organized state militia is found in the constitution. Not the right to carry an AR15 to starbucks.
#NEWS: Guji-Oromo militia reinvaded the #Koore community, stole livestock
✅AG source from SNNPR's #Amaro district said Oromo expansionists killed or injured dozens of ethnic Koore recently
✅Locals say their ordeal is ignored by international media due to being a tiny minority https://t.co/DNn1citzJU

Please stop spreading lies!
There isn’t a liberal I know who wants to take away anyone’s musket! Just so long as they’re a member of a well regulated militia.
The Constitution Grants you the right to be in a well regulated militia and insures your right to bear a "musket."
Take your "AR15" and shove it up your rights. I don't want to get shot because you're having a bad F'ing day. #OurBlueVoice
So gun ownership reflects the need for a well-regulated militia to defend itself against threats? Well why didn’t someone say so? https://t.co/rfrqXiZtly

You left out "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State" part. Well regulated, not unfettered. The security of a free STATE, not a free PEOPLE. Bad things happen when you parse the Constitution however you like.

“A well regulated militia, being
necessary to the security of a free state,
the right of the people to keep and bear
arms, shall not be infringed.”
THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE. Not the militia, the people. Reading comprehension isn’t your strong suit is it?

Well regulated militia refers to a group people that would go up against a government for infringing in on rights. Not regulating the equipment (guns).
This is why everyone skips over it. If you think it's referring to the equipment, they would've regulated the guns back then.
U are right. TyrantBiya & his terrorist regime instead of fighting the real terrorist in the North of Cameroun(LRC) they transfer equipment, illtrained terrorist militia to murder,rape, abduct,loot, burn down entire communities in Southern Cameroons aka Ambazonia for evil intents
I'm for responsible gun ownership. But these justices (despite what they claim) are not "originalists" or "constitutionalists." I don't want to hear that lie anymore. The 2nd Amendment is CLEARLY speaks about a "well-regulated" militia. And it doesn't say "gun." So, nukes okay?
2nd amendment only guarantees the right to join a well-regulated militia. Even then, you theoretically can still be rejected for being a fascist.
So what is the purpose of even including "well-regulated militia"? Without that initial clause it would seem to be a much more direct and robust right

What are you talking about? There was no standing army at the founding. That did not exist so of course it would not be present in the text. The "army" at the time was the militia. Are you daft?
