Here is something else he said too:
The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home...But the fact that modern developments have limited

That is the key and the decoupling I spoke of.
