    Yes it does. The prefatory clause. The 2A specifically regards militia weapons.

    Terrorists don't need guns to effect a hyjacking.

    Air Marshals need guns if the aircraft is hyjacked even if the terrorists do not have any guns.

    It's not about guns to repel guns, it's not about a gun'fight, it's about retaining control of the aircraft.

    Guns are simply the most effective way to apply force.

    My argument was with the point you ineffectually attempted to make.

    You have not been keeping up with Heller. The first half of the amendment is now worth less than the utilitarian value of a five pound bag of common garden manure.

    You had no real argument. If you think you do, just state it clearly and I will be happy to speak to it.

    Oh putting words in quotes to change their meaning now? Nice. Dishonest of you, but nice.

    "A well regulated militia...", that means were talking about militia arms, not naval arms, not air-force arms, but a militia, which is infantry and to a lesser degree field artillery.

    there is no vagueness. It wasn't until Democraps in the 1930s wanted to pander to people by pretending to "do something" about bootleggers did anyone start pretending that the 2nd A was ambiguous

    apparently "THAT MEANS" as used by you actually means ANYTHING YOU WANT IT TO MEAN even though the Amendment does not say so.
