The 2nd Amendment A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Militia referred citizens trained but not in the army. The Militia had the right to protect their country. For sudden invasions, the government wanted a militia to rely on with their own supplies.

This means citizens have the right to arm themselves.
