H/T Robb Allen 2nd Amendment

Lets start with the Second Amendment.
For all the clarity of language of our Founding Fathers, people who were VERY literate, we seem to muddle it up fairly badly.  I also realize this is often the intend of a certain section of society.
As currently written:

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.

A suggested revision:
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.  This is necessary for the security of a free people and thus a free Republic.  This amendment forbids the restriction of ownership, usage, storage or means of carry of any arm for the citizenry.  It does; however, restrict the arms that may be owned, issued, used, stored or carried by agents of the state (at any level of governance) to those found in common usage by the citizenry.   Any elected,  appointed or volunteer agent of the state (at any level of governance) who votes for, enacts or otherwise enables infringement will be guilty of deprivation of rights under color of law.  Said agent of the state shall be responsible for all associated legal fees for both sides and shall be imprisoned for a term of not less than 13 months nor more than 72 months.
