A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keepand bear arms, shall not be infringed.
.. maybe i'm dense... but what part of People , and Keep, is being misunderstood? It doesn't say " A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of militia members to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
You might want to run that past an English Teacher, or just about anyone with a 4 year degree. Because, basically, that is exactly what it says. You don't need to repeat the part about the militia, because the sentence is linked together by the commas. If there was an "and" right before "the right to.... " there would be no arguement, but there isn't so the part about a Right is linked to the part about a regulated militia.
