A correct reading of the Second Amendment might actually mean that citizens are limited only to weapons that might be used to keep their particular State free. Read the Second Amendment and give this a thought, the Second Amendment is all about 1. A well regulated Militia 2. the necessity of security of a free state and 3. The Right to Keep and Bear firearms. Like it or not (and I do) the Second Amendment DEMANDS that people have access to weapons capable of maintaining the security of a free State. Now I ask you what might those weapons be??

Why does the left praise USSC when they p*ss all over the Constitution (Roe v Wade, Kelo v City of New London, etc.) but ignore them when they uphold the Constitution as they did in McDonald v Chicago that specifically held that the 2nd Amendment guarantees the individual right to bear arms. Have someone read the decision to you and try to explain what it means.

IT actually is talking about the fact that a well regulated militias is necessary for the security of a free state. Now look at the placement of the comma. The two phrase are linked in that the first makes the second necessary in that since the states or government needs a well regulated militia to maintain a frees state, THE RIGHTS of the PEOPLE (not the state or government) to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT be infringed. What this tells me is that the people need to be as equally well armed as those state and government militias for no other reason than BALANCE OF POWER....It is really necessary to read and follow the Federalist papers and the writings of those who drafted those amendments to grasp what their concerns were.

being able to stop an out of control government such as the one they just rebelled against. Take the weapons out of the peoples hands and the government of the people by the people for the people becomes a government that subjugates the people.

On legal basis and with proper interpretation of the Constitution... you are indeed correct. However, beware since there are three liberalist 'ladies' on SCOTUS along with Roberts. With but one additional vote gun rights start down a slippery path only ending in their elimination.

"Nuclear weapons."

The information for making a functional nuclear weapon has been know and available since the late '60s. Go build yourself a nuke if you want one so badly.

That means citizens are entitled to every weapon the state has.

Indeed an ordinary citizen was entitled to every weapon the state possessed.

Why should it be any different now?

You left off the real key phrase: "shall not be infringed"

There are so many problems with your argument, one hardly knows where to start, but let's begin here: "militia" today does not mean the same thing as progressives have managed to twist it (just as "general welfare" and the word "progressive" itself have been manipulated).

As the gun control debate rages on, we’ve seen a host of gun-rights advocates standing up for the Second Amendment. In addition to citizens, the NRA, the National Sheriffs Association and countless others, a number of companies—including gun manufacturers, sporting good retailers and gunsmiths—are now taking a stand by refusing to sell to law enforcement in New York and other states with restrictive gun laws.

The message in these companies’ statements is essentially about equality—local law enforcement and government agencies should not have rights that citizens do not.  Thus, if states such as New York choose to adopt restrictive...
