the 2nd amendment isn't about types of guns or their uses, it's about freedom from the abuse by the government itself
The 2nd Amendment protects the rights to bear arms, it does not protect the right to bear a specific arm.

Define "Arms" as meant in the bill of rights.

Define "speedy" for the right to a speedy trial.

Define excessive bail or cruel punishment.

Define an unreasonable search.

Do you apply original intent to them all or to none? Or does it depend on which is your favorite?

All generalizations are dangerous.
