    Frankly, I think the Supreme Court got it all wrong in United States versus Miller: a sawed-off shotgun certainly does have military uses.

    Miller was a default; there was no opposing argument made.

    "Many people believe there is no conflict to resolve, and that the Supreme Court has already said there is no individual right to own a firearm. That belief rests on a 1939 case, United States v. Miller, which ruled that there was no Second Amendment right to carry a sawed-off shotgun, on the grounds that it was a weapon not suitable for militia use.'

    Not a bad enough write-up from the (more 'n more) liberal Rocky Mountain Snooze - in cohorts with the Denver (com)Post. Much better than expected.

    The author gets it, but not quite.

    Those that have actually read the decision, & know the history behind, only have a problem with the stupid ruling regards that specific weapon only.

    What's the real kicker, is the bogus decisions & "legal interpretations" since based on a "what we'd wish to feel it meant" mentality.

    A pox on all revisionist-stuff .... grrrr

    It does, but it was not demonstrated to them that it was.

    The reason being that Miller was dead and the lawyer never showed up.
