159. So?
That is their opinion and nothing more.

For seven decades, the Supreme Court's 1939 decision in United States v. Miller was widely understood to have endorsed that view.


Widely understood by whom? Miller does not endorse either theory. This guy puts it best:
Oddly, Second Amendment scholars have largely ignored Miller. While individual and collective right theorists alike claim Miller supports their position, most provide only a perfunctory account of the case. The few exceptions focus on the text of the opinion, rather than the history of the case, and the context in which it was decided. All conclude Miller is an impenetrable mess.
