And they keep telling me this ain't so.  Our Founding Fathers did not intend this when they wrote the 2nd.

"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States."

–Noah Webster, An Examination of the Leading Principles of the Federal Constitution, 1787
