How can any state claim specficly that the right to Guns extends only to use
as a armed govmt millitia and not for personal use without violateing the

they are for the individual citizen's personal defense ?
SECTION 24 RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS.
The right of the individual citizen to bear arms in defense of himself, or
the state, shall not be impaired, but nothing in this section shall be
construed as authorizing individuals or corporations to organize, maintain
or employ an armed body of men.
