BB guns, pellet guns, slingshots, sound suppressors, sawed off shotguns, machine guns, pistols, rifles, knives, are all arms and the constitution clearly states that the right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed.

You are absolutely correct. Not too long ago the States started passing laws against things like slingshots, numb-chucks, swords and spears because - they said - that these small, antique arms were only nuisance weapons that did not fit the intention of the Second Amendment! But ... people allowed it.

Have you been to any modern Arms convention lately?

At a modern arms convention the kind of small arms that the Control Nuts oppose would be found, for sale in a corner of the basement.

The modern arms that are traded are astonishingly deadly, capable of Mass Destruction-squared.

Pitiably, humans often stale inhuman treatment of other humans by maintaining a "MAD" - "Mutually Assured Destruction" condition.

From history and experience, many of America's Founders knew and understood MAD and thus they wrote and summarized the Second Amendment in only two simple and clear sentences.

The Second Amendment did not allow ONLY hunting arms, nor only antique arms, nor only modern arms.

For a Free State of Being: A Militia for defense is not only for defense against any foreign of domestic government as many states represented foreign governments. It is not only for defense against any enterprise seeking to enslave weaker persons and, not only for personal defense against robbers and murderers: The Right to Bear Arms is an HONOR proven to belong to Free People and (but) that right MUST be HONORABLY kept.

I agree with everything you said except the 2nd Amendment is only 1 sentence not 2.
