albaby: Yes. DC v. Heller, which holds that although the Second Amendment refers to militias, the term "militia" refers to the population of able-bodied men (not merely the actual collection of such men after they have been summoned to participate in an organized military unit) and thus that the right to "keep and bear arms" under the Second Amendment is a right that they possess, and not the State.

This sounds like the Wild West all over again. Any idiot can pack heat - and many idiots do so.

Sadly, there is zero chance of ever returning to the original intent of the second.
