18. Yes, axing half the amendment IS wrong

 

And that is precisely what happened in 1903 with the passage of the Dick Act.

But the founders foresaw this, which is why they enumerated the right as one that belongs to the people, and not to the militias, nor the states.

If something were to happen to the militias, or even the states, then the people would still posses the means to defend themselves.

Also, the Supreme Court was unanimous in its ruling that the second amendment protected an individual right.
