    It doesn't say that--if it did the wording would be-the right of those serving in well regulated militias to keep and bear arms s hall not be infringed

    you need to stop interpreting the amendment so that it supports your anti gun psychobabble and start interpreting it consistent with the rest of the bill of rights

    Okay, show me the part where it says NON-MILITIA members (CIVILIANS) have the right and I'll shut up... nothing implied, actual words.

    It will always be a mystery to me how the meaning of the terms got so screwed up.

    so it is your opinion that "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" is a mistake and the founders -who were able to use "the several states" in other areas of the USC and the BoR erred since what they really wanted to say was "the right of the several states to arm militias shall not be infringed

    those words alone (which Numerous scholars have noted are not dependent upon the first clause) is your answer

    here is your problem and why I know you are clueless

    1) the BoR contains no limitations on individual rights assumed to exist prior to the constitution

    2) there is no delegation of power to the federal government to preclude arms ownership by non militia members

    then we have the obvious--how can a militia be effectively mustered from unarmed civilians. to have a militia, means people have to be armed before the need arises.

    Maybe you ought to actually read the amendment.

    ...the right of THE PEOPLE...

    Not the militia, not the state, not the people in the militia, but the people.
