Often it is said that much of the constitution was written to give the government a basic framework within which to govern from. All parts where written to best protect the people. The constitution has become like a loaded gun when used against the people. Any time the people fight back the government just has to quote something from it to justify their action. They say it's not the constitution that kills but the people who lead using it that do.
Most don't realize the constitution does give the government a full right to kill where any threat against the American shore could be considered and action or sentence to die. A reason for war. The ability to take tax payer dollars for up to 2 years and spend on a militia for what ever reason they see fit to take military action against others even if it be an American citizen.
When you read the letters in the congressional archives of congress from the men who designed the 2nd amendment as they debated back and forth and the exact reasons as to why they where writing it. It;s clear that Dave Mason and James Madison are clearly trying to give the American country the right to build an army and train it to fight for the American people. When you read the letters by Thomas Jefferson speaking about allowing the hunters the right to keep and bare arms because that was the way they worked, made money, fed their families and survived.
At that point it becomes clear the author and co-auther of the 2nd amendment are writting the 2nd amendment for one purpose. As a simple basic statement to protect the majority of the people by giving the government the right to form well trained militias and use tax payer funding to pay for it. It was also understood that the people could keep their guns for the soul purpose of feeding their families but not written in to the constitution to make it easy and simple to interpret.
Most people who read the 2nd amendment focus on one set of words. The right to bare arms. They do not focus on well trained militia. Adding the two together kind of makes it clear to me. You can't just ask a group of well trained people to buy guns and join together for the protection of American Shores. American shores is the soul purpose in the statement for owning guns. If you are owning guns for any other reason it is quite obvious the 2nd amendment does not apply in that situation. So if you own a gun and accidentily shoot your own foot or your buddies foot you can no longer qualify under the well trained part of the statement.
In my opinion you don't have to read the intent of the 3 men as well as others debating the issue as to what it really meant. Just takes a little common sense. It's a 3 part statement. It gives you the right to own guns if you are part of well trained militia for the soul purpose of protecting the American shores. I agree the American shores is a broad term. The constitution itself was written to govern and protect Americans as a whole. Not just by using selective hearing by picking just a few simple words out here and there. Its a basic simple framework for all to govern by and its telling the leaders chosen what they have the rights to do and not do for the best protection of the people. Something the leaders need to understand before they take the oath to serve the people. A bad leader for personal gain could be seen as a threat to American Shores and held acountable for acts of treason by not upholding the framework as it is written.
