i understand what you are saying about the grievance.

and that is what makes the meaning what it is. I also don't know why people on the gun rights side of the debate don't use that as support for the real meaning.

I understand that the people that don't like the second amendment don't mention the grievance because it would make it harder for them to obfuscate and muddle the true meaning.

then again, I don't understand much of anything the majority of pundits and politicians do. it probably has to do with ulterior motives.
