If English is your field of expertise, why are you using a false definition of "well regulated" rather than the definition commonly used in the 18th century? Well regulated meant nothing more than well equipped and well disciplined back then. Kind of like a watch that keeps the correct time is well regulated. It had nothing to do with being regulated by a government body. In fact the very purpose of the 2nd amendment is to recognize that citizens must have the means to control government, not another way for citizens to be controlled, as you would have it.
actually it meant

1630s, from Late Latin regulatus, past participle of regulare "to control by rule, direct" (5c.), from Latin regula "rule" (see regular). Related: Regulated; regulating.

and the constitution wasn't drafted in the 1800s. it was drafted in the late 17th century.

You had best run on over to the post office and send this information to the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) because they strongly disagree with your fantasy.
The 2nd. Amendment allows citizens to be able to overthrow that "well regulated militia."
Militia ceases to be a "militia" once it is trained and equipped properly. In other words you idiot, "well regulated."
actually everyone who becomes a citizen takes an oath to uphold the constitution.

and obviously you don't know what the word militia means

militia men were those who aren't professional soldier. in other words they don't make a career in soldiering.

Oh teacher! Someone needs some more schooling.

17th century = 1600's
18th century = 1700's

We're now living in the 21st century, in case you didn't know.

Oh my sides!

Interesting that some believe that the constitution can rules that citizens can have guns but the constitution doesn't have the right to regulate guns.

"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."

Pretty simple stuff.

What's the noun in that sentence? Right.

What's the verb? Shall not.

No, actually you got one wrong.

"(The Constitution) was drafted in the late 17th century."

Can you say it? "I was wrong."

I hear it is very cathartic.

actually there are people who understand it that way. i'm not crying even if you believe i am.
the link to the law definition interprets it that way. you're just ignorant of the fact and what the word "and" as conjunction mean.
it means a concurrence, combination. it doesn't mean this or that. it means the whole kit and kaboodle
<quoted text>no need to try. you're doing it enough for everyone. "and" and "or" do not mean the same thing. "or" implies that you can have any of the things listed to qualify. "and" implies you have to have all those things listed to qualify.

your opinion is of little value in the face of facts. that is why justice can never be served when liars rule and practice contradictory to the law.

Sucks for you no one reads the 2nd amendment that way.
Keep trying. Your tears are sweet.
I am a Democrat,who didn't care either way the vote went.But people read anything they want to into those amendments,if they like it they believe it means what they like.The reason i wasn't for it is simple,background checks on the buyer won't turn up all the nuts and crazies that could have access to that gun from the owner.

you left out a comma.

nouns in the sentence: militia, right,

You're adding commas for your own use.

Every state in the Union ratified the amendment with but one comma. To add them now is to be willfully dishonest.

The amendment ratified by the states:

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.

A supporting clause and a main clause. Your version with 3 commas doesn't even make sense.

you obviously didn't get the gist of the statement. you claim the 2nd amendment doesn't regulate guns but then you acknowledge the 2nd amendment rules that people can have all the guns they want.

fyi regulate and rule are synonyms
