"Well regulated militia"

The Constitution does not say, "Unfettered access to any and all guns". It says "Well regulated".
It is not anti-2nd Amendment to want gun control laws.

And before you bring up "infringed"
Even freedom of speech, religion and assembly are limited by laws.

1. Unflortunately, the senile idiots on SCOTUS just ruled otherwise.

I'm not sure who's ass they pulled that decision out of, but there it is.

2. We Have A "Well Regulated Militia" - It's Called The Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines

The Well Regulated Militia is an anachronism of speech used when there was no other alternative than citizen soldiers.

Even when one does have citizen soldiers, all arms can be strictly controlled under lock and key.
