the 2nd amendment says
Quote:A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

last i checked regular people having guns is not the same as a "well regulated militia" and ensuring a states security requires that the militia should be under the regulation of a government rather than individual people just forming a mob with guns

You need to pay attention to punctuation.

What the second amendment says (and the SCOTUS agrees) is that we the people have the right to a well regulated militia - AND - (by placement of that comma) the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

It's two separate things -- (as determined by SCOTUS) -- not one.
