A well regulated militia simply means a well organized militia. Who makes up the militia? The citizens. Who organizes the militia? The leaders.

Show me the part where it LITERALLY says ANYTHING about "thwarting tyranny". Lord- I bet you're hell on the Bible too!
Read the amendment. Does it say a well regulated militia has the right to keep and bear arms? No. It says The People have the right to keep and bear arms.
Oh let's see, does being necessary to a free state sound familiar? Tyranny being the opposite of providing freedom.
