"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
What this means is:
"Because we need a WELL REGULATED
(emphasis mine) armed force to keep the peace we will allow citizens to own arms."
Any connection with a RIGHT to own arms of any kind, in any quantity for any reason by anyone deranged or not with no REGULATION is pure nonsense.
GET OVER IT.
Guns are MEANT to launch bullets in order to kill. Anyone wanting more than a bolt action 30-06 with a 5 shot magazine has more in mind than hunting or defense. In is a pathetic illumination of manhood in America.
Former Chief Justice Warren Burger, a conservative,
said the idea that there was an individual right to bear
arms was "a fraud." If he were writing the Bill of Rights
now, he said in 1991,
"There wouldn't be any such thing as the Second Amendment."
He declared on PBS that the Second Amendment
"has been the subject of one of the greatest pieces of fraud, I repeat the word
fraud, on the American public by special interest groups
that I have ever seen in my lifetime."
