Response to needledriver (Original post)

35. Well needledriver, I think there is nothing left of the "Militia" arguments made in this thread.

 

The "it's not comparable" claim in post 2 has been demolished with an analogous constitutional statement from the same era. The semantic argument of posts 2 and 4 has been demolished by simply letting the English speak for itself--with the same principle of English interpretation being shown to work perfectly in the analogous constitutional statement from the era and in a comparable sentence in modern English.

Many other logical, historical and scholarly arguments have been presented.

Any one who reads through this thread can see that there is nothing left of the Militia arguments that have been made.

What will be interesting to see will be if the same person whose arguments have been demolished will make the same arguments in an attempt to deceive others who haven't seen them reduced to rubble.

I've seen it over and over again. Folks who have carefully avoided the strongest arguments and who have stubbornly clung to their preconceived notions in the face of the strongest possible evidence will not only fail to admit it when it's in their faces, but will brazenly repeat the same nonsense in an attempt to take in people who haven't seen the evidence.

Time will tell, I guess.
