However, Miller essentially said the 2A applies ONLY to weapons suitable for the militia. And in Heller Justice Scalia wrote that the 2A applies to a right to keep and bear those firearms "in common use." That most certainly includes semi-automatic pistols with capacities greater than 10 (or 7) rounds, and it certainly includes AR-15 rifles and carbines with 30-round magazines.
