    You already have (and pay taxes for!) socialized civil and national defense! What you're looking for is the ability to purchase supplemental levels of defense, which isn't where we want the mandate to be.

    By analogy, up here in Canada we already have nationalised healthcare policies (of a sort), but we still individually buy supplemental health insurance plans if we want them.

    The true comparison to guns would be to say that people shouldn't have to pay for their portion of the defense budget, because we don't like 'defense mandates'.

    The first thing on the opening page is asking for your e-mail address. Smoke and mirrors.

    Actually this idea dates back to the founding of the country...


    Second Militia Act of 1792


    The second Act, passed May 8, 1792, provided for the organization of the state militias. It conscripted every "free able-bodied white male citizen" between the ages of 18 and 45 into a local militia company overseen by the state. Militia members were to arm themselves with a musket, bayonet and belt, two spare flints, a cartridge box with 24 bullets, and a knapsack. Men owning rifles were required to provide a powder horn, 1/4 pound of gun powder, 20 rifle balls, a shooting pouch, and a knapsack.[5] Some occupations were exempt, such as congressmen, stagecoach drivers, and ferryboatmen. Otherwise, men were required to report for training twice a year, usually in the Spring and Fall.
    The militias were divided into "divisions, brigades, regiments, battalions, and companies" as the state legislatures would direct.[6] The provisions of the first Act governing the calling up of the militia by the President in case of invasion or obstruction to law enforcement were continued in the second Act.[7] Court martial proceedings were authorized by the statute against militia members who disobeyed orders.[8]

    Not really.

    The only major difference is that everyone is required to serve in the military unless they have a medical condition preventing them to do so. Isreal is the same way in that regard.

    Yes, which is precisely why I thought the arguments (on both sides) before the court were ridiculous.
    Obviously Congress has previously mandated the purchase of stuff on pain of penalty.

    Or as they say, if they can make you buy guns, they can make you buy insurance, and they can make you buy
    broccoli.

    You pose a picture of guns laying about waiting for theft. In reality the guns in homes would be operated by the "Good" guys who would in turn shoot the bad guys. Besides, how many bad guys are gonna want to break into a house they know is armed?
