    The 2nd Amendment doesn't say what the gun nuts claim it says. It guarantees the right of states to have militias.
      That has been the position of the courts up to the Heller decision.
       With the Heller decision, the Court purported to find a self-defense right in the 2nd Amendment. But that does not mean that gun regulations on magazines or types of weapons are unconstitutional.
       A future court, with plenty of precedent behind it, could rule that Heller was wrongly decided. Or, more likely, the Court could make repeated rulings narrowing the alleged self defense right.
