Heller put that argument to bed in 2008. Anyone still making it is hopelessly out of touch and can be ignored.

Is this verbatim including punctuation? (a) reads a little ambiguous to me. (2) reads like conflicting definition.

Doesn’t seem ambiguous at all.

When that was written, 45 years old was old age, thus not members of the militia.
