Based on only what a couple liberals said to me (so maybe my sources were the exception), I thought it was a typical liberal position that the 2nd amendment referred to militia only, not the right of individual citizens.
I will note that a Google search turned up liberalswithguns.com that says a lot of liberals are pro individual citizens having guns for the sake of national defense. I didn't have time to find any more liberal web sites, because my search almost exclusively turned up anti-liberal web sites that I of course can't use to know the average liberal mind.
Hurbert H Humphrey, Senator and US Vice-President, known as "Mr. Liberal" said:
"Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms.... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safeguard against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be always possible."
