^ I am well aware of the purpose of the Bill of Rights, in general. I'm talking about the Second Amendment, specifically. The only reason IT exists is to provide for a militia, and we of course no longer need a militia because we have things that didn't exist at that time (the police, the military). Since those organizations now provide for the security of a free state, militias are no longer needed for that purpose.
Gun nuts always forget about the very specific word order in that amendment. "A well-regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state..." They always leave that part out, because it doesn't feed their chaos/anarchy fantasies.
