Argument: In order to form a militia, citizens require guns and a right to own them
- MR. GURA. Oral arguments in DC vs. Heller. March 19th, 2008 - "The framers wished to preserve the right to keep and bear arms. They wished to preserve the ability of people to act as militia, and so there was certainly no plan for, say, a technical obsolescence.
- However, the fact is that Miller spoke very strongly about the fact that people were expected to bring arms supplied by themselves of the kind in common use at the time."
