In case the Supreme Court has trouble reaching its NcDonald v. Chicago decision, they can use mine, which reads the amendment as a link betweem the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

According to the Declaration of Independence, it is “the right of the people” to abolish a government that doesn’t serve the interests of the people, and to create one that does. The Second Amendment says that it is the “right of the people” to provide militia service to secure the government that the people have chosen. And that is the right that the Second Amendment declares “shall not be infringed.”
