5. That would be a good start. A better one would be to interpret the 2nd amend

properly in the first place:

In our modern context, it should, if interpreted by the courts correctly, only apply to National Guard members on active duty while serving in defense of their country, or the state they live in doing rescue work, backup to law enforcement, etc.

That's what the Founders meant when they wrote it, only they were "militias" back then, and that's how they would tell us it should be interpreted in our modern context were they around today.
