185. interpreting the second amendment

here's the second amendment wording from the Internet:

Amendment II
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.


several things:
1. this is an amendment, so further amendments could change this. Otherwise, why was the amendment allowed in the first place
2. this applies to a well regulated militia. are lunatics part of a militia?
3. it says nothing about controls or where the guns should be stored. Where should they be kept?
4. it says nothing about ammunition. Should this be readily available?
5. what exactly are arms? are they small weapons, muskets, artilery, machine guns? i would say they should be muskets or the weapons at the time the law was written.
6. what does infringed mean?

Don't ask the current corrupt supreme court. they will obviously interpet the wording in the favor of their corporate and repub masters.

What i hear from people about their rights, as conferred by this simple wording, makes no sense and is only argued in their paranoid favor.


And the first amendment gives me the right so speak my mind.
