Please provide a quote to that effect.Keep and bear was a legal term of art, and much like the term "search and siezure," it had a very specific meaning. Simply put, keep meant "keep up" or "keep in working condition" and bear meant "bear against an invading army or tyrannical government."
Please provide a quote to that effect.The militia clause informs the whole second amendment, giving it context. And if there was any doubt we were talking about the militia, the term "keep and bear" confirms that the scope the founders envisioned was limited to militia service.
