People who cite the 2nd Amendment tend to forget the first part of it, which
refers to a WELL REGULATED MILITIA.
At the time when the Constitution was written, there was no such thing as an
American army. People would work as farmers or silversmiths or merchants, and
would participate as members of a militia in case of problems from the British
or any other invading force from the OUTSIDE.
