Q. Does the Arizona State Constitution, really mandate the Militia?
A. Yes. AZ CONST. Art. (16) Sec. (1)
Q. What does the Militia do?
A. The Militia is, a military organization of citizens with limited military training, which is available for emergency service, usually for local defense.
It's only a sentence long; 27 words that barely take up a full line on the Bill of Rights.
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed".
And yet, for years, those 27 brief words have been the source of contentious debate -- seen by some as an inalienable protection against tyranny; by others as a dangerous anachronism.
Here's a look at the Second Amendment, its phrases parsed and placed in legal and historical context. Our guides will be Constitutional experts Jeffrey Rosen and Jack Rakove.
What is a militia?
At the time of the American Revolutionary War, militias were groups of able-bodied men who protected their towns, colonies, and eventually states. "[When the Constitution was drafted], the militia was a state-based institution," says Rakove. "States were responsible for organizing this." What did it mean to be well regulated? One of the biggest challenges in interpreting a centuries-old document is that the meanings of words change or diverge. "Well-regulated in the 18th century tended to be something like well-organized, well-armed, well-disciplined," says Rakove. "It didn't mean 'regulation' in the sense that we use it now, in that it's not about the regulatory state. There's been nuance there. It means the militia was in an effective shape to fight." In other words, it didn't mean the state was controlling the militia in a certain way, but rather that the militia was prepared to do its duty.
What type of security was referred to here?
To get to that, consider the climate of the United States at the time. The country had just fought a war, won its independence and was expanding west. There were plenty of reasons to feel unsafe, and so "security" had a very palpable meaning. "You have an expanding country, and the principle defense use of the militia would be to protect local residents from attack and invasion," Rakove says. It also meant physical protection from government overreach. "The idea of a state militia would also be attractive because it serves as a deterrent against national tyranny," says Rakove. "At the time, if government forces tried to take over land or overstep their boundaries, you'd have an institution in place -- the militia -- that would outnumber any army." Of course, with the size and scope of the modern United States military, and the fact that militias as we know it no longer exist, that notion is hard to imagine today. In the debate over the Second Amendment, this phrase, "a well regulated militia," remains one of the most cited and argued parts of the sentence. What did a free state mean? It may seem obvious, but Rosen and Rakove agree the Constitution bore a lot of contemporary moralism and not every word is well-defined. In this case, the meaning of "state" is what it appears to be. "This is referring immediately to 'state' as in one of the states of the original colonies," Rosen says. "James Madison had the 1777 Virginia Declaration of Rights by his side when he wrote the Bill of Rights and he essentially copied and pasted language from it." EXCERPT FROM THE VIRGINIA DECLARATION OF RIGHTS, 1777 (p. 3) The language here clearly informed the language of the Second Amendment. But it could also speak to a larger understanding of liberty.
"So here," Rosen continues, "George Mason (the author of the Virginia Declaration of Rights) is talking about not only the free state of Virginia." He is also talking about a broader state of freedom. What kind of rights?
This is another highly-contested area where it helps to know more about how the framers of the Constitution thought about complex ideas like "rights." "When we think about 'rights,' we think of them as regulations and exemptions," Rakove says. "Back at the birth of our nation, they had a different quality. They were more moralistic." Rosen says this viewpoint is reflected in the Declaration of Independence: EXCERPT FROM THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE (p. 1) A clear statement that "rights" are inherent and not granted.

"They believed we are born into a state of nature before we form governments, and that we are endowed with certain fundamental rights." These natural rights included the right to religious expression, free speech, property and more. But they did not, Rosen says, specifically include the tenets of the Second Amendment. "The framers did not talk about the right to bear arms as one of the set of natural rights," he says. "But it is fair to say that the right to alter and abolish government -- to the degree that modern people claim they have that right -- the framers certainly believe it." "In that sense, it is historically accurate to say that the framers did recognize a natural right of self-defense." Who are the people? Even the term "people" -- the most basic catch-all -- has limitations. "You say people, you mean individual persons," says Rakove. "But, if you go to Article I, Section 2 of the Constitution, it says the House of Representatives will be chosen by the
people -- who are the persons?
Who are entitled to exercise that suffrage?
You see, you can use the term 'people' to imply a collective mass, but there are some categories of people that can be excluded." After all, when the Constitution was written, slaves were considered property and women were not allowed to vote. In addition, there is a more basic question of semantics:
By "the people," is the Second Amendment referring to people as private entities, or as participants in the militia?
The legal consensus is that the Second Amendment applies to individual rights, within reasonable regulations.
What are Arms in this context, and what is the scope of bearing Arms? In the "District of Columbia v. Heller," the Supreme Court decided the rights outlined by the Second Amendment did apply specifically to possession of firearms for purposes of self-defense. The decision struck down the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975, which heavily regulated owning and keeping firearms in the District of Columbia.
This section of the decision specifically references the tricky wording of the Second Amendment.
In the above excerpt, we can see the Court considered the awkward phrasing of the Amendment.
The Justices divided the Amendment into an operative clause: "right of the people to keep and bear arms," and a prefatory clause: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State." The court determined the relationship between these phrases, as well as the historical context of the Constutition's creation, clearly provided an individual right. The term "arms" is also an ever-changing one, and there are ongoing debates about assault weapons and emerging firearm technologies.
"One thing people disagree about is whether assault weapons bans are constitutional," says Rosen. "They also disagree about how we should interpret the constitution in terms of history or in light of new technologies."
What does it all mean? For modern applications and purposes, Rosen agrees that we must turn to how the Second Amendment is presented in a court of law. For the most part, these applications have remained consistent since the Heller decision in 2008 and a similar case, McDonald v. City of Chicago, which was decided in 2010. "It's really striking that since these Supreme Court decisions... lower courts have upheld almost all of the gun regulations they have asked to review," he says. Rakove thinks the framers of the Constitution would be surprised at the conversations we are having today. "While there is a common law right to self-defense, most historians think that it would be remarkable news to the framers of the Second Amendment that they were actually constitutionalizing a personal right to self-defense as opposed to trying to say something significant about the militia," he says. Words like "militia" and "rights" are loaded with historical context and nuance that can act as a Rorschach test, leading even the best-intentioned interpreters to different conclusions.
If there were any clear answers, these 27 words wouldn't be so incendiary.

As things stand, every single American that died in service to this once great nation, died in vane. Their lives wasted.
This is the generation that will go down in history, as the one that let it slip away.
Take a moment, let it sink in. Now hang your head in shame.

Well, they've done it again. The Dems have cheated us once again. Stealing the Arizona election results by diluting the honest votes with their mail in ballots, and injecting false ballots in the amount of almost 300,000.
Katie lied. Katie cheated. and Mark Brnovich failed miserably in his role as Arizona Attorney General, whereby condoning the fraud to the detriment of his constituents. Both will soon be swinging at the nearest intersection, where their carcasses with remain until sunset, so that all those elected will see the consequences of violating the OATH OF OFFICE.
They wont be lonely however, Maricopa County Recorder Ritcher, Doug Ducey, Bill Gates and his posse of board of directors, will join them. We should expect their closing arguments to sound much like gurgling until the weight of their fat pompous asses struggling with gravity snaps their necks and ends the discussion.
Oh, they probably believe this will all blow over, and it will be business as usual. Not a chance. There are not enough Phoenix PD bodyguards sufficient to shield 1000 targets painted on each. Not enough DPS, Not enough fake sheriffs deputies. There are not enough of anything to save them from their calling.
We The People, ordained the government, and we wrote into the rule book that We the People have the right and a duty to remove said government and replace it with an organic form of representative government that will serve We The People. This type of leadership will not be tolerated, and to attempt to defend it from We The People, is futile.
Its time to stand up Arizona, and take back our rights at whatever cost is necessary. Prepare to make the sacrifices required to effect the desired outcome. We must lean into this fight. It is a daunting task and many ignorant protectors of the regime will fall. 1 shot must equal 1 kill. (2or3 if you sight them that way).
And herein I advise: LE, you have failed in your duty to protect the constitution, to uphold its intent as you swore you would. You chose to defend criminals rather than arrest them. Look, at the border mess created after the fed was stolen in 2020,. There lies your additional failure. It was easier for you to write tickets and create domestic violence classifications out of common squabbles, (like shooting fish in a barrel). To farm revenues for your masters.
You should no longer expect the motorist that you've observed doing something you can call crime, and needlessly stopped to say: 'How can I help you officer?", instead, expect a point blank flash and then darkness, you've just been retired. Its better that LE just stand down and turn away as the Patriots do what needs to be done. Don,t fly your air support, don't attempt to break up our assemblies, don't try to make arrests, most of all, do not point your weapons at Patriots, you will lose the gunfight.
The image to the right was shot by Draper. Against a sunset backdrop, an ICBM was fired at Arizona. At first sight, it appeared as a metiorite. As the missile traveled north across the sky, it abruptly deviated from its course by a malfunction or alternate intervention. Apparent by the spray of fuel after impact. The self proclaimed leasers of the state will tell you it was a Space-X launch.
