Who are the militia?

"Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? It is feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... [T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people."

--Tench Coxe, The Pennsylvania Gazette, 1788

This is a basically a drive-by. We have discussed the militia quite intensively in threads previously

If the OP wants to add a discussion beyond the quote - PM us with such.

Thus, closed for the moment.
