No, you just can't process certain pov's is all. Not to mention your reading comprehension abilities in general.

Go back and read what I said about the Constitution pre-Bill of Rights and where the anti-Federalists were concerned about those powers. This checks those powers with the "militia" meaning the people. It was very popular back the for the people, as reflected in the statements by certain Framers, to distrust a large standing army. This is why a citizen militia would work as they have in Switzerland. Madison put out some numbers as to how large this standing army should be in response. The militia was to check those powers—not just be under the control of the Feds. Read the debates to get a better idea of what is meant by this amendment.
