Sorry, but the Second Amendment as it is written does not limit who can "keep and bear arms" or what kind of arms people can keep and bear. Federal gun regulation didn’t come until 1934, decades after the Second Amendment was introduced.

The Constitution does, however, give Congress the power to "grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal," which were government licenses that allowed civilians to attack and detain vessels of countries at war with the U.S., including their cannons for use.

Decades? Weird way to describe nearly 150yrs. I guess it's not technically wrong, just weird.

Also, your interpretation of the constitution is pretty facile. No right is unlimited or "uninfringeable" in the way you might be implying.

“A well regulated militia…” there is definitely no link to regulation in the second amendment.

Sorry, but I don’t think that 18th century aristocrats should get to have the last word on what is or is not a right or how we should govern society in 2022.

The barrier to amending the constitution is so high that it might as well be impossible. It’s easier to imagine the dissolution of the United States - which will probably happen at some point at the rate we’re going.

Exactly OP, why can’t people (of course not one individual, but groups of private individuals who pool resources to) own arms like mortars, tanks, Stinger missile launchers?

If there’s no limit on what kind of arms people can keep and bear, why shouldn’t I be able to start a local group on Nextdoor and we purchase a commercial drone and put some heat seeking missiles on it? Or partner with the local university to create a small (just a small) low-yield nuclear weapon.

Good afternoon everyone! I hope all is well and everyone that reads this post is having a great day. I am posting because I am currently looking for a new role. The company I currently work for not only downsized, but severely cut hours for those of us still here. Needless to say, I need to earn money to survive. I have no il-will towards the company but I cannot survive off what I am currently making. If you have any referrals or know of any opportunities, please let me know.
