It is clear, from the text of the Second Amendment, that the founders of our government assured for us the right to possess sufficient arms that would allow us to organize ourselves into well-regulated militias when we felt the need.
We have a problem: In order to adequately equip our militias, we must have more than handguns and assault rifles. At a minimum we need grenades, anti-personnel mines and artillery as well as both anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles. Our problem is that our government has passed laws restricting citizens from owning “destructive devices” and interprets this to include our necessary grenades, rockets, missiles and mines.
I can see only two possible solutions. We must either declare unconstitutional all laws barring us from owning “destructive devices” or change the Second Amendment.
