The idea of owning private nukes, as opposed to keeping them collectively as a militia, is a hypothetical—one that would be barred due to cost, as mentioned earlier. So a ridiculous question gets an equally ridiculous answer. However, it can be defended strictly using the context of the original Convention's debates, quotes by Framers and final wording with understood definitions if one wants to engage in the hypothetical.

Outside of that, I see it much like Switzerland who has bombs and planes inside mountains that their citizens can take to as needed. They don't have nuclear weapons though. They do have nuclear power.

The only other thing I can see is any conflict with other rights such as nuclear waste, pollution and the amount of destruction that can occur with an accident.
