“Well Regulated Militia”

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.
-U.S. Constitution

This is a no brainer for most Americans, but liberals just can’t seem to twist the words or the context enough to satisfy their eagerness to control everyone.
If you’ve read the Federalist Papers, you’re no doubt familiar with the opposition to a Federal militia at the time the Constitution was proposed. The simple, contextual, and grammatical interpretation of the 2nd Amendment protects the rights of the people, not the militia. Because a well regulated (trained and disciplined) militia is necessary for the security of a free state, the gov’t cannot infringe on the right of the people to “keep” and “bear” arms. The idea is that should a Federal militia become a threat to “the people”, “the people” have the right and the means of defending and protecting themselves. And, this interpretation is implied and supported in many writings during and since the constitution was proposed and ratified.
