    In another thread, the thought crossed my mind that Heller affirms the idea of "A Militia of One". Well, not really, but it is a catchy phrase. What would be a good design for a t-shirt?

    I'm thinking of the classic Minute Man, except with an AR with a bayonet. :evil:

    Feel free to use it if you want to print some up.

    Oh yeah! Just the slogan alone makes it a winner. Give Oleg a week, we'll have the best design ever! Maybe something simplified, for T-shirts and and ball caps?

    Would it have a target on the back or is that going to cost extra?

    Oh well, somebody thought of it first... It is catchy, though. SCOTUS effectively separated militia status from the individual right to keep and bear arms in Heller. My thought is that they left the door open for us to keep and bear the common military arms of our day, i.e., individual weapons and not crew served weapons. How far this goes remains to be seen, but there is at least a chance. Therefore the "Militia of One" idea. ;)

    At the very least it would be no more offensive than the "I'm with Stupid" t-shirt. ;)

    As the entire adult male populace of America is effectively the "Militia" of the United States (according to the Congressional Act of 1792) the "Militia of One" idea does not make sense to me. The word "Militia" in today's sheeple society, for right or wrong, conjures up images of insane malcontents intent on defying the government to the point of destruction at all costs. I pose that a person wearing a "Militia of One" shirt will be labeled by the uneducated populace as a would-be terrorist, and their lives potentially be made hell.

    Also, the "Army of One" thing has been done to death.

    To go running around willy-nilly waving flags and guns after such a momentous decision as Heller would not be in the best interest of the Pro-Second society IMO. The High Road was founded to show gunnies as the intelligent, thoughtful, gun owners they are, not the images of liberatarian extremists this Militia of One shirt would provoke. Very careful consideration of this idea needs to be done before progressing further.

    Beautiful photo, Shung, both in composition and set up. Even the clouds in the background add an understated drama to the subject matter.

    Good point. But everytime I explain it to my wife she asks me to count to ten without using my fingers and toes. I'm a gun owner, dammit, not some mathematical genius.

    I thought that was why the antis wanted to limit magazine capacity to ten rounds? ;)

    At least, that seems to be the way they think of us...
