Toomuch, it goes back just a bit further than 2007. The constitution expressly provides for using both the militia and the army for putting down insurrections, and unless I'm mistaken the Insurrection Act is over a century old. There's an excellent book, American Insurrection, about President Kennedy's use of both to quell an insurrection against the integration of the University of Mississippi in the early 1960's. Those people who actually fired on US Marshalls thought of themselves as "patriots" defending their way of life against an oppressive federal government, but I think history will regard them as a bunch of racist criminals.

.....never been fond of getting shot at. It always ruins your whole day when that happens.

Maybe someone should go to the families of all those innocent CHILDREN that have been the victims of gun violence. Oh, and maybe someone who owns guns should be first.

Well I just found out about those changes made in 2007. When u read it it gives the president the power to use the military domestically any time he feels justified. Thats crazy but oh well.

Its all academic from my view anyway, I'm not planning a revolution and have never been fond of getting shot at. It always ruins your whole day when that happens.

"As far as domestic operations of the federal military forces it is illegal under several provisions passed during the civil war reconstruction except under very specific circumstances."

One of those circumstances is domestic insurrection. Geez, I hope this discussion is purely academic, even though there have been a few actual instances of it happening over the years.

"I was simply showing you that YOUR Scalia quote was senseless."

Huh? You asked me who constituted the founding-era militia, I gave you an excerpt from Heller describing it as a subset of the population (white males of military age), which description is consistent with the Militia Act. It was NOT everyone, as you seem to believe.

I do agree that the Heller decision was all over the place. How could it not be and still reach that result? If fancy dancing of the linguistic variety is needed, Nino clearly is the dood to do it.

" quoted the first Militia Act from 1792: ............"

I believe that's the SECOND Militia Act from 1792..........which is AFTER the Second Amendment was written.
