You say that as if the right to arms is only what the 2nd Amendment "allows".

Actually, you are 180 degrees wrong. This standard you want to hold the 2nd Amendment to, really only applies to the federal government and the enumerated powers. If the framers didn't "say" IN THE BODY OF THE CONSTITUTION, that the feds can restrict the right to arms and not recognize home defense, then you would have an argument.

Pointing the the 2nd Amendment and saying, the right to defend your home ain't in there, has no legitimacy.
