Let's look at what is being proposed:
a) the framers of the 2nd Amendment were "giving back" to the citizens a conditioned, qualified and restrained fragment of a right the people never parted with . . .
b) the states ratified that Amendment knowing it could be interpreted to allow the federal government to decide WHO should be the approved arms bearers within and for their state and establish later, using undefined power, under what conditions the federal government would recognize the state's citizens as having a right to arms -- and enforce that with federal law that would work to disarm a state's citizens the fed's deemed unworthy . . .
That's the BS you need to believe to "interpret" the 2ndA as qualifying / conditioning the right to arms of the people upon militia attachment -- that the feds get to decide the criteria of.

Absolutely absurd.
