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. Read the debates to get a better idea of what is meant by this amendment.
I ****ing asked like 5 times if you thought the 2nd Am guaranteed a private, personal right to a nuclear weapon and you dance around with all this stuff about militias and where the nuke is kept.
If I asked about a basic hangun, you would have said "Yes." When I ask about typically military-level weaponry, you start babbling. I get it--you're afraid to admit that there are ANY restictions allowed by the 2nd Am.
