What does the Second Amendment really mean?

Asked by Paradox25 (10089 points ) June 25th, 2014

This question pertains to originalism regarding the Second Amendment. The part I was wondering about was concerning the definition of a well regulated militia.

What is the definition of a well regulated militia in the context used here by the framers? The term militia can have several meanings, but I’m thinking this is the most vital aspect of determining what the original intent of the Second Amendment was.
