We Won!

So, for once and for all, I'd kindly like everybody to have a nice cup of STFU about the meaning of the Second Amendment.
1. The Second Amendment protects an individual right to possess a
firearm unconnected with service in a militia, and to use that arm for
traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home.
Pp. 2–53.
(a) The Amendment’s prefatory clause announces a purpose, but
does not limit or expand the scope of the second part, the operative
clause. The operative clause’s text and history demonstrate that it
connotes an individual right to keep and bear arms. Pp. 2–22.
For the clueless here, the prefatory clause is the part about "well-regulated militia" and "security of a free state". The operative clause is "the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." Anybody who ever said the militia clause meant restrictions on the right of the individual to keep and bear arms can now eat a bowl of dicks. SCOTUS says you're wrong.

Now, can we get those people to admit the 4th means something?
