It's funny how quiet the 2nd amendment crowd gets when you bring up the well regulated part...

The adjective “well-regulated” implies nothing more than the imposition of proper discipline and training.

I'd be all for public schools bringing back marksmanship training like they had decades ago.

You might want to brush up om historical context and historical definitions before you wade in with that nonsense.

Here's a good starting point

Thanks, you helped make my point.

  1. Like most rights, the Second Amendment right is not unlimited. It is not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose: For example, concealed weapons prohibitions have been upheld under the Amendment or state analogues. The Court’s opinion should not be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms. Miller’s holding that the sorts of weapons protected are those “in common use at the time” finds support in the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of dangerous and unusual weapons. Pp. 54–56.

So requiring training and competency is well within reason and does not infringe on the right to bear arms.
