The intention of the 2nd amendment is so that average people can have the necessary firepower and get together to be able to defend against invasions and our government should it become tyrannical. So the idea that the national guard being a militia is absurd.

You would agree an insane person who is acting out should not have a gun. A drunk person should not have a gun. We already regulate guns so don't over think it.
Someone who is both insane and dangerous should be in the loony bin until they are deemed no longer dangerous.
"There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”—Theodore Roosevelt
