I simply wish they'd been clearer in their intent ... think how pleasant life would be if the 2A simply said "The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Crystal clean, no militia clause to allow a debate over their intentions ... I don't think they could have imagined what we can buy over the counter at any gun store today, but I agree that their intention was to allow us to protect ourselves against any government, like the British, which overstepped its bounds ...
