You miss my point. Sure he's entitled to them. But why should he
*have to have them*? They're extra state which, in the presence
of a proper autoconfigurator, he doesn't need.

Militias, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves and
include all men capable of bearing arms. [...] To preserve liberty it is
essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms and be
taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.
-- Senator Richard Henry Lee, 1788, on "militia" in the 2nd Amendment
