So, how about that Declaration...?
Our Declaration of Independence acknowledges our unalienable right to Life and Liberty. It neither addresses nor foresees a standing army or a state militia (meaning a state in the Union) as we now have.
And, it didn't need to.
I believe that the Second Amendment intends to reaffirm our unalienable right to Life and Liberty by means commensurate with those entities who would deprive us - meaning (in my opinion) in combination of type and number to maintain parity with an enemy of the State. As oaths of allegiance often state...'to protect the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.' In defending the Constitution, we are also defending our unalienable rights.
Lots of Cast Iron to Cook With...
and a few defensive firearms, too!
