You need bump stock or an AR15 to defend property.

The only person who has the right to determine what someone "needs" is that person themselves.

If I want a fully automatic machine gun it is my inherent right to own one.

Rights aren't granted by the Constitution. Rights are inherent.

Therefore, “well regulated” means nothing.

True, but the meaning of well regulated means practiced and well equipped. However the right to possess a firearm has NOTHING to do with being in a Militia.

The Constitution only LIMITS what GOVERNMENT can do. It does NOT grant is rights.

Obviously the Constitution is a failure as it has never once limited what the government can do.

Spooner said it best:

“But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much is certain - that it has either authorized such a government as we have had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit to exist.”
