the 2nd doesnt have anything to do with calling up any type of militia,,,
Correct. My point was that even if it were, that private ownership of firearms by THE PEOPLE is required. The comma that separates the two statements is important. It is the PEOPLE'S RIGHT pure and simple.
The slave states didn't consider slaves to be completely human, only 3/5ths human, as I recall and thus for that reason also, they weren't entitled to the same rights as other people.
Your ignorance is not surprising.
It was the Northern states that demanded that slaves not be counted at all. Counting the slaves would have given the Southern states more Representatives in the House. Something the Northern states wanted to avoid in order for them to control those states. The 3/5ths stipulation was the compromise. As you know Republicans have done far more for the Civil Rights of minorities than Democrats. See Abraham Lincoln for starters.
Separate names with a comma.
