I'm going to argue that it is lawful and constitutionally mandated. 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.
To have a free state, not under the rule of a foreign power, means there must be a militia. With the militia comes defending that free state.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence
, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Provide for a common defense, so if the militia must maintain a free state and they provide the common defense, and the militia is ALL men 18-45 of able body then it's our duty to defend against foreign invaders.
Right there, in our original document.
Furthermore, I present, my good friends, section 8:
The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
In section 8, it clearly states: To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions
Since we are the militia, we are to repel invasions.
Good people, the Great State of South Carolina rests it's case.
ETA: AMERICA, FUCK YEAH!
