The 2nd Amendment was destroyed by the Dick Act. If you do not know what that is, then you are “hoodwinked in the dark”. Arms had nothing to do with it, and Arms were not declared in the Amendment. What was declared was a Militia? Perhaps going back to its origin in the State Constitutions will give you a clue, as in those Constitutions, it was spelled out in a more “wordy fashion”. Stating that “Standing Armies are Corrupt and should not be kept up under Peacetime”.
