I was reading the decision of the court regarding the DC Gun Ban and I came upon this Jewel.
"By the terms of the Second Militia Act of 1792-----------
The act provides that he should "furnish himself with all the equipment of a private in the infantry, untill proper ordance and field artillery is provided" The Act required Militia Men to aquire weapons that were in common circulation and that individual men would be able to employ, such as Muskets, Rifles, Pistols, Sabres, Hangers, etc. but not cumbdrson, expensive, or rare equipment such as cannons."
Now I believe that means each person in the National Militia (all law abiding citizens over 17 years of age) should have in theri possesion the arms of a private in the infantry readily available should the government declare a national emergency and all militia personal report to protect the country.
Therefor; each person should have a at least a AR 15, AK47, SKS, M1A, FAL, or similar type military rifle as well as an appropriate Bayonet or knife. They also should have at least one 20 round Magazine and at least 20rds of ammo.
By the Second Militia Act of 1792, the so called assault Weapons Bans are illeagle.
