Our Very Wonderful Well-Regulated Militia
Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored," fellow soldiers! It's time to protect America!
You see, each and every one of us over the age of 18, with very few exceptions, are members of the well-regulated militia.
You've probably noticed that I write a lot about the First Amendment. In the interest of fairness, it's time to look at the Second Amendment:
"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to bear arms, shall not be infringed."
Here comes the Hun! Where's my gun?
It's not easy being a member of the United States of America well regulated militia. People so easily overlook your role in protecting our free state.
Just this morning, I heard that the mass transit police in Philadelphia apprehended a patriotic militia man on the busiest subway in the city. This soldier was carrying an AK 47 assault rifle and several rounds of ammunition. (His ration kit also included marijuana.) The cheek of those transit cops! Honestly!
My daughter The Heir rides mass transit in Philadelphia, and I am personally offended that a well-regulated militia man was hauled off the train and arrested. No doubt he was there in the first place to protect Heir and the other passengers from the ever-present danger of an enemy in our midst.
You are going to see more of this, readers. Our state security is going to be compromised because our militia members are being arrested, and in some cases denied firearms altogether. I quake, I absolutely quake, for my daughter's safety on the El. Everywhere you look there are Nazis, North Koreans, Viet Cong, and bearded terrorists shouting about Allah! What's the name of that little island in the middle of nowhere that the U.S. invaded back in the 1980s? Slips my mind, but you just know the leaders of that island are out for serious reprisals. (Just remembered: Grenada. Full of enemies.)
As for the arms we can bear, well, I say that whatever we can carry should be bearable. At my very next opportunity, I am going to a gun show in search of a surface-to-air missile. If I am going to be part of the well-regulated militia, I don't want to take any chances with those flocks of geese that pass this way in the fall. Haven't you ever heard of germ warfare?
