I'm just amazed that their is a minimum length for a shotgun? Who came up with that rule? Doesn't that conflict with the 2nd amendment??

Of course it conflicts with the 2nd Amendment.

If Miller’s attorneys had showed up for his case before the Supreme Court, they could have pointed out that sawed-off shotguns were very useful in the end-stages of trench warfare, and thus thereby protected.

But, at that point Miller was either disappeared or dead, and nobody was paying them, and they didn’t show.

IIRC SCOTUS decided that a shotgun was not a military weapon and therefore exempt from 2A protections.
