the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

It just doesn't get any clearer than that.
Yet SO many forget those all-important first words, and before we get into the bit how everyone is de facto in a militia, no they are not. The whole quote, can therefore be argued to limit this right to those in the organized States' militia who (especially at the time), had more power than the Federal government - and should in today's world as well, regardless of new rulings.

This argument has come up here a hundred times before
