Does the 2nd amendment also apply to swords, slingshots, spring-loaded hammers, and spears?

    Arms. So even nuclear arms

    There's a reason the 2nd Amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and also mentioned a militia.

    The purpose is to guarantee that people would own arms, so that if they were ever called to militia duty, they could grab their weapons and bear those arms in service of the militia.

    So the arms that would necessarily be protected are those suitable for use by a citizen militia. Swords, sure. Other weapons like most knives or other bladed weapons would be suitable for a citizen militia to use, just like an AR-15 would make a most excellent weapon for a citizen militia to use.

    It also applies to hand grenades but the government won’t admit it

    2nd amendment can arguably apply to literally everything that the government might have, including nuclear weapons.

    Thing is that we've also violated it by banning machine guns and banning firearms for felons.

      -- if we want to be 100% accurate and people will just argue against you like they know what they're talking about either way.

    yes....all those things fall under the broad heading of "arms"...

    It just says "armaments", which covers everything from a pointy stick to a megaton nuke.
