You have no idea what it means, that much is clear.<quoted text>
Oh, and for 200 years, owning a firearm was not a right. The 2nd amendment is speaking about the military, not average people.
"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."
People who say the 2nd amendment is "Right to bear arms" obviously have not read it.
It means people should form militias to protect their rights and country.
It also means people have the right to own firearms period.
It means these are sovereign god given unalienable rights.
"shall not be infringed"
But it doesn't mean laws can't be made to outlaw them.
That's where the true meaning of exactly what it means comes out.
