Definition of "Arms"

edited January 2016 in Gun Law Facts Posts: 1
The second amendment says, "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."  I remember reading about a supreme court case that determined that "arms" can be defined as any gun that is standard issue for a military because the general population should be able to fight back against any invading force.  For the life of me, I can't find that reference again.  Did I imagine this or read it wrong?  Does anyone know the case I'm thinking of?
