I have never worked anywhere else but on an open floorplan.

And yet:

I know (from experience) I would be less productive in a cubicle or in my own office. I know (again from experience) this is the case for the majority of people.

From your vast experience not working anywhere else but on an open floorplan, and your vast experience not being anybody else but yourself?

"Well regulated", relevant or not, means well equipped and trained. Always has. Not sure what you think it means, you haven't said.

As far as "consequences" go, the states with the strongest laws have the highest incidence of violent crime.

You sure you want to trot out the fallacy that prohibition is effective? Didn't work out very well for alcohol, utterly failed for MJ.

The definition of "well regulated" has not changed, and Heller/McDonald specifically dismantle the infantile "militia" argument:

[T]he activities [the Amendment] protects are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual's enjoyment of the right contingent upon his or her continued or intermittent enrollment in the militia.

Furthermore, under US v. Miller, the 2nd Amendment covers arms "commonly used for self defense", which certainly does not exclude "military" weapons, especially since the 2A specifically protected state of the art (at the time) firearms equipped by infantry.

There is basically nothing about your post which is even remotely factual - just typical partisan whining.

You don't have to know how the computer works, just how to work the computer.
