Here's a tasty little morsel....

"Bearing arms for the common defense may well be held to be a political right, or for the protection and maintenance of such rights, intended to be guaranteed; but the right to keep them, with all that is implied fairly as an incident to this right, is a private individual right, guaranteed to the citizen, not the soldier."

- Andrews v. State, 50 Tenn. at 156, 3 Heisk. at 182. (1871).
