You might be surprised to learn, that for a couple of centuries, the Supreme Court never ruled on exactly what the Second Amendment means. Many understood the right to be limited in two ways. First, it applied only to keeping and bearing arms for military purposes, and second, while it limited the power of the federal government, it did not impose any limit whatsoever on the states or local governments to regulate the ownership or use of firearms.
