Does Your Town Have a Militia?

Editor,  Wisconsin Christian News:

   In the country, God gave us the Constitution of the United States of America as the authority over us.  The second amendment to it states: “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.”  

   “REGULATE” means: “direct or govern by rule,” “put or keep in good order.”   “MILITIA” means: “a body of citizen soldiers, called out only in emergencies.”  “INFRINGE”  means: “violate; transgress; encroach; trespass.”  “ENCROACH” means: “enter upon the domain of another; trespass; make inroads.”   An inroad is a forcible or insidious encroachment; a raid.  “KEEP” means: “maintain possession or custody of; retain;” “continue or maintain in action or conduct.”  “BEAR” means: “hold up; support; carry; convey; “put up with; accept; endure; sustain; “bring forward; render; “possess; show; exercise.”  

   Law definitions can be seen in Black’s Law Dictionary, or one of the others in your Law library at your courthouse, but don’t let them hide the un-abridged hard copies from you.
