Is The 2nd Amendment For You Or A Militia? These Are The Cold Dead Fingers of Truth (Opinion)

Should no one but cops, the military and the bad guys have guns, or should law abiding citizens like you and me get to have them too? What does the 2nd Amendment mean? Is it a two part statement or just one? Is it all about hunting, self defense or protecting yourself from a tyrannical government?
