Agree. However, the reason the antis argued that was because the militia is defunct. Therefore if they could make them dependent on each other then they could restrict guns anyway they chose.

BTW, the 2A only protected the states and individuals from the Feds. The states, however, could disarm anyone they wished and did so with freed slaves.
