No self-defense in the Second Amendment?

A lady from England wrote, “The Second Amendment was a compromise between Federalists and Anti-Federalists. Here's the original text

"The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; a well armed and well regulated militia being the best security of a free country; but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person."

“(nothing about taking potshots at burglars)”

Lawrence responds: You’re right. I guess our founding fathers never guessed we would produce a generation of bird-brains who thought they needed special permission to defend themselves.
