I believe Posner is incorrect in his interpretation of the 2nd, and I submit the following. Suppose there was also an amendment that read, "A well informed Congress being necessary for a free state, the right of the people to read books shall not be infringed." Would you interpret that to mean that only Congress members have the right to read books?

This is not an original thought of mine, but I read it several years ago and cannot attribute credit to the unknown author.
