The first amendment there is quite a leap as well. The separation of church and state is not laid out in the first amendment. But this is typical liberalism at it's worst.
These were the original words:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.
I agree that it's not about being in the military because that just seems silly. Why wouldn't you be armed in the military? However, the way it's worded leaves room for interpretation IMO. Some people say that's about the right to use arms to overthrow your government, but try it and see what happens.
No wonder the US Mensa membership has been dropping.
"I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people. To disarm the people is the best and most effectual way to enslave them."

From Apocalypse' link:
The following, has always been my favorite comeback to questionable interpretations ... googled the 'comma' placements, and found this to explain it ...Textbook version: "The people have a right to keep and bear arms in a state militia."
Actual 2nd Amendment: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
