Some explicit language, but a thoughtful veteran's blog post. The thing I think everyone forgets about the Second Amendment is the "well REGULATED MILITIA" part. It's supposed to establish the point and parameters of the right. It's time we make that part of what the right means.

Holy smokes, yall. This story is unvelievable, except that it's on NPR & my sister-in-law...
