Ignorant tRumptards bleat that the Separation of Church and State does not appear in our Constitution. Neither does the word "Guns." See ?
The specific phrase is "bear arms." To protect tank tops, most likely.
Prank lint, the expression “separation of church and state” was in an 1802 letter that Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptists Association of Connecticut to paraphrase the 1st Amendment. That is NOT modern. The Supreme Court first employed the term “separation of church and state” in 1879 as shorthand for the meaning of the 1st Amendment's religion clauses, stating “it may be accepted almost as an authoritative declaration of the scope and effect of the amendment.” Not modern, either.
To use your retarded excuse for an argument, it doesn't matter what some people think guns are. The term does not appear anywhere in the Constitution. When the Framers wrote the 2nd Amendment, "Arms" referred only to cannons, swords and muskets. Or maybe it referred to things with hands on them. Some people call those guns, too.

I guess since it is the word "arms" in the const., one could argue we have a right to bear nuclear weapons as citizens.

The term "Separation of Church and State" does not appear in the Constitution. It is a modern term referring to the 1st Amendment where the government does not establish a religion and cannot prevent individuals from practicing their beliefs. Freedom of religion also guarantees a freedom from religion. The word arms is in the Constitution. Some people call them guns.
