This is BS. The point of the Clause was to maintain "well regulated militias..." These were supposed to act under the orders of governors and State Legislatures. We know them today as National Guardsmen. Creeps who insist on having Bushmasters and other weapons of mass destruction are playing "Army", or looking to create fear and loathing. They are successful at the latter.
