What utter poppycock.

No honest grammarian would conflate "militia" and "right." The two words are in separate clauses; the militia is recognized as a legitimate function of the states and is to be well regulated, while the right is unconditionally reserved to the people.

It does not say "well regulated right," it says "well regulated militia."

The 2A can be paraphrased generically to say, "Because of that, we are guaranteeing this."

"That" and "this" are two different things, and the meaning of the sentence cannot be twisted to say otherwise.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
