Yeah, and federalizing the National Guard kinda defeated that purpose as well. Just heard about the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Sounds like a fun thing. Rifle training and surplus rifle sales. And I do like the militia idea behind the 2nd Amendment. Personally, I wouldn't mind having a license for owning a firearm being tied to an organised militia training, but then again, I am a dirty eurocuck who thinks that the average idiot should at least have some form of training before operating dangerous things, because apparently I hate freedom. But I think it'd be cool if you could do like a two-week bootcamp and at the end you can get something like the M1 Carbine you trained with for a reduced price, along with the license to use other rifles and pistols.
