    But the distinction is between arms v. ordnance. The RKBA folks could likely explain it better, but arms are what you would expect an average soldier to be equipped with such as a firearm, knife, and bayonet. "Ordnance", such as bio/chemical weapons, missiles, and rockets, is not the same as "arms" and thus not included in the 2nd Amendment. Traditionally ordnance is any weapon that requires one or more personnel to operate and maintain or a weapon that is not readily man portable.
