That brings us to the plain unambiguous text of the Second Amendment: “A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” For too long “well-regulated” meant “any firearm any place any time” and “militia” meant “individual person.”

This guy's take should be destroyed every time it's encountered.

The completely ignorant application of a modifier to a noun not even in the same clause is pitifully dimwitted.

"Well-regulated" modifies "militia", not "right", and the mention of "militia" serves the sole purpose of explaining why the "right" is being guaranteed.

This "Militia" = "Right" nonsense is transparently stoopid, and those who espouse it should be shamed for being uneducated in the written English language.

Not to mention "well regulated" would have been understood to mean "well trained".
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
"Some people think that the Second Amendment is an outdated relic of an earlier time. Doubtless some also think that constitutional protections of other rights are outdated relics of earlier times. We The People own those rights regardless, unless and until We The People repeal them. For those who believe it to be outdated, the Second Amendment provides a good test of whether their allegiance is really to the Constitution of the United States, or only to their preferences in public policies and audiences. The Constitution is law, not vague aspirations, and we are obligated to protect, defend, and apply it. If the Second Amendment were truly an outdated relic, the Constitution provides a method for repeal. The Constitution does not furnish the federal courts with an eraser." --9th Circuit Court Judge Andrew Kleinfeld, dissenting opinion in which the court refused to rehear the case while citing deeply flawed anti-Second Amendment nonsense (Nordyke v. King; opinion filed April 5, 2004)
