I understand why one would want to do that.
The problem I have with that is that our society has been sold a lot of nonsense about guns. I doubt that if our congress were to try to re-write the second amendment that they would get it right. In other words, I think we'd end up with a situation where we are reluctantly allowed by our protectors to buy squirt guns, but only after a thorough full field background check. Real guns with bullets, never.
Our leaders are also not of the same caliber and many do not value the right to keep and bear arms the way our founders did.
For the same reasons I do not favor the idea that we have a new Constitutional Convention.
If we re-write our constitution now we'll end up with a western european socialist state.
