How’s about if the socialist succeed in trashing the country, we start over with:

2nd amendment: The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

And be done with it.

It is obvious to me that the founders intended us to have weapons capable of confronting a tyrannical government. Not hunting or musket antiques. Not single shot, or magazines limited to ten rounds.
They intended us to have state of the art individual combat weapons. The Swiss have them in every home, and have one of the lowest crime rates.
Many in our government don’t trust us to that extent. And I don’t trust them.

An increasing percentage of the American people are familiar with firearms and understand their use.

Then, too, the basic need for them was discovered in Europe long before the founding of the British colonies in North America.

It was a simple item. The Huguenots agreed to a truce between themselves and the Guise (that is, Catholic faction) at the end of the French Religious Wars ~ but they refused to stack arms and allow them to be returned to the government controled armories.

Technology changes everybody's plans, and then their beliefs. Today even the Pope is a Huguenot when it comes to the value of demanding and protecting religious freedom!

You can thank firearms for that.

While undoubtedly there exists a sizeable percentage of
the population that fundamentally lack the capability of
understanding something as simple as the Second Amendment,
it’s historical basis and the rationale for it’s existence
these people are the exception. In reality the vast vast
majority of those who would outlaw the right to arms and the right to self defense truly fully and completely understand the Amendment and what it actually means.

They just don’t care. To a large portion of the populace and for nearly EVERY person holding federal elected office
the meaning of the Constitution is explicitly clear...they just don’t care. It’s an impediment to their agenda thus it is to be ignored, denigrated, abused and violated with
impunity.

The solution to the problem is not debate, not logic, not
education. For the vast majority of those opposing our fundamental rights the solution is a long drop on a short rope as these people truly only care about one thing....their power....and how to get more of it over us.

Wait for 0 to redefine “arms”: knives no more than 1” long, air pistols, bow and arrow - arrows having a suction cup of color on the end rather than a steel tip.

Time for patriots to get organized folks. 2010 might be the last chance if the slobbering enemedia is right about Clinton in 2016.

Alternate valid interpretation:

The Founders were hesitant to have a standing army. They wanted the populace armed instead. They did grudgingly recognize that a country did in fact need a standing army. The 2nd Amendment’s preface acknowledges that a standing army (well regulated) is necessary, and that notwithstanding the people are still recognized as having a right to keep and bear arms. To wit, the presence of a standing army in no way precludes the people being armed.
