But then I posed a set of question which would have one answer if the militia clause has meaning and a different answer if it does not. And all your answers are in line with the no meaning interpretation.
My answers are consistent with the interpretation that the militia clause cannot be used to infringe on the people's right to keep and bear arms.

To reiterate my position, I believe the militia clause is meaningless and the second amendment should be read as granting an individual right.
The 2A grants an individual right, and the militia clause cannot be used to infringe on it. Saying "you can't use this to infringe on a right" is different from saying it is meaningless.
