OK, that’s true. I believe you are making reference to Judge Laurence Silberman, for the majority in Parker v District of Columbia (DC Cir. 2007), who said “the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

However, there are also those that say that second amendment guarantees individuals the “right” to possess firearms, not just members of “militias.” Like the article states, there must be a “right of the people to keep and bear arms.”

Thoughts?

I don’t understand your question.

It looks like both sides of your “however” are the same.
