History has meaning...

It doesn't take being a Supreme Court Justice to know that the opening shots of the Revolution were because the British had decided to collect the powder stores that the militia had. It also doesn't take being a Supreme Court Justice to know that the founding fathers had a problem with that action by the then government which is why they crafted the 2nd amendment the way that they did.

One may argue that "confiscating the powder stores" is reasonable and practical but history tells otherwise that it was NOT reasonable or acceptable. Thus to argue that the 2nd amendment means something else, patently ignores history.
