Now, a 1999 ruling out of Texas has made the Second Amendment a live ball, one that could be bouncing its way to the U.S. Supreme Court. In the end, scholars say, gun enthusiasts could score an unprecedented legal coup, securing individual rights that courts have long been reluctant to grant them.

How can anyone say the National Guard represents the militia the framers of the Constitution spoke of? The National Guard is under the control of the federal gov't,leasing federal land,using weapons supplied by the federal gov't, but the National Guard is going to stand up for our rights against this same gov't gone amuck? Yeah right. I remember reading that the governor of Minnesota tried to stop the call up of NG troops during Desert Storm, saying the state of Minnesota had control of the state NG but he was shot down in court. The rights granted in the Bill of Rights are [b]individual[/b]rights, not a collective right. Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer, but I did stay @ a Holiday Inn Express once.
