    "the militia" and the common militia weapons that a militia would "keep and bear"... so actually a civilian modified AR-15 type rifle is almost the definition of what would be covered, since it is a civilianized copy of what the US military is issued.

    What really needs to be defined is "the militia" and its role. IMO, the "militia" would be every able-bodied citizen between the ages of 18 to 65 (theoretically). If someone in this category wanted to own a militia weapon, they should join a state-recognized militia and be available to assist in the event of civil disaster.

    Whereas if you don't join a militia, then... it's bolt-actions, lever-actions, trapdoors, break-open, revolvers and muzzleloaders.
