These CO2 pistols are great fun. I don't have the Remington yet, but I've heard very good things about it.

From Dave Hardy's Blog Of Arms and the Law.

 

On SSRN: The Janus-faced Second Amendment: Looking Backward to the Renaissance, Forward to the Enlightenment. I've just started circulating it to law reviews. It has two themes:

 

1. The 2A has two clauses because it had two independent purposes, each with a different constituency. Classical Republicans wanted a guarantee against the militia, as a system, being neglected. Jeffersonians want a guarantee of an individual right to arms. For most of the Framing period, a person, group, or State chose one of the other. With the Virginia ratifying convention of 1788, someone finally realized they could do both and please both groups. To construe the right to arms as limited to militia service (as the Heller dissenters did) is to misconstrue the history. They were separate ideas, and to the extent we can assign importance, the right to arms was universally seen as more important.

2. In any event, the modern National Guard is emphatically not the militia of the Constitution. The militia were a local body, the citizenry, under command of the governor, and only able to be called into Federal service for three reasons, all designed to involve service within the U.S. (repel invasion, suppress insurrection, enforce the laws of the Union). Under the Constitution, they were to be trained by the States, and led by officers appointed by the States. As the Heller dissent (this time correctly) notes, the militia was meant to be a counterpoise to Congress's power to create an army. Madison in Federal No. 46 points this out clearly.
The modern NG was created by 20th century statutes as a Federal force, a reserve component of the Army, with Federal training and Federally-approved officers, able to be called into Federal service for any reason, including foreign service. It was specifically created pursuant to the Congressional power to create armies.

Seems like that MG needs a man on it and ammo rigged to it. Also. Perhaps sandbags or splinter shields around it?

An Sdkfz-251 half-track under it would be more appropriate.
