New York was first

Here are Maryland's proposed infringements to the Second Ammendment

Contact your elected officials and let them know you are against ridiculous regulations that do not prevent crime and violate your Constitutional rights

Without looking it up, about when do you believe:

"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

was "officially" interpreted to mean:

"the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia"

Isn't the 2nd amendment specifically about granting STATES rights to maintain militias to quell slave revolts?

I read this recently.

Edit: I found the link

Right from the beginning. Because a "well regulated militia" is formed "by the people", meaning ALL the people "of a free state" can band together (to form a well regulated militia) for a redress of grievances from their gov't.

When do you think people started coming up with there own interpretations? Even though it is plenty clear what the original intentions were because they enforced these ideals through the courts dating back to then. Why would you flatter yourself to believe you know better or it means anything different than what was and has been enforced since it was written?

A lot of states, mine included, have the individual right in the state Const. as well.

[Art.] 2-a. [The Bearing of Arms.] All persons have the right to keep and bear arms in defense of themselves, their families, their property and the state

Explain? The research and quotes look consistent with historical record. Not trying to flame, just trying to understand how we got to where we are today.

Does anyone recall the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975, which banned DC residents from owning handguns, automatic firearms, or high-capacity semi-automatic firearms, as well as prohibited possession of unregistered firearms (with some, but precious few, permitted exceptions) and required firearms kept in the home to be unloaded, disassembled, or a trigger locked?

Yup. I would highly doubt that there is any strong evidence to suggest that strong gun control laws prevent/limit gun violence. Surely, if such evidence existed, it would be all over the media by now.

Slavery was fiercely debated at the time so it's not terribly hard to cherry pick a few quotes and try to establish causality. This is true with anything, not just guns and the militia.
