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.The Obama Administration: Deny. Deflect. Blame.

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.

From Apocalypse' link:
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."
How A Comma Gave Americans The Right To Own Guns
A recent poll suggests Americans will consider the gun debate a pivotal point in the 2014 elections. So we wanted to explore how Americans kept the right to bear arms in the first place. As it turns out, grammar is the culprit.
