I agree 100% with the op

I will however point out that a constitutional amendment nullifying the 2nd amendment would NEVER pass. The founders purposely created the amendment process so that votes could not be stolen/forged/faked etc...

They also set it up that way because they knew the general population would by and large be quite ignorant in a free country where most become complacent and forget their history. State reps are supposed to be a bit above average in intelligence then the general population and better able to weigh in on very SERIOUS decisions such as a constitutional amendment.

What we are debating here - at the core, is "What are self-evident rights?" Obviously you have the right to exist and that is self-evident thereby you have a right to have equal firepower as anyone else who might try to take that right away.
