It does not have to be “over-turned” per se, it just needs proper interpretation. Its subject matter is entirely plural: all the other amendments use the word “Persons” when it is necessary to make it clear that the rights of individuals are being referenced. 2A does not. It does not even say “the right of people”, it says “the right of the people”, which is a collective noun. If it was intended to say that everyone gets to/should have their own personal arsenal, it would have been more clearly written.
