We don’t need to create an amendment. We need the courts to cite that the 2nd is exclusively for a militia and is talking about a well regulated entity, not the rabble. Back in the day when states drew their militia from local communities and the population was sparse.

Unbeknownst to the drafters of the 2nd amendment the concept of a large standing army the size and scope of the current US military would have boggled their minds. It is an antiquated part of the constitution...but so is the 3/5th compromise.

It is rather ironic that the people who claim to be constitutionalits tend to be the most creative in trying to force their ideology into the intentions of the Founding Fathers.
