I believe that people can criticize whatever they want, but in the US, the right to own firearms is not being force on to anyone. If you do not feel the need to own one, do not get one ... simple. If those who are adamant about getting rid of the 2nd because it is "outdated", there are laws in place to admen the the Constitution. But looking back at the "Prohibition", it might not be a great idea to change anything. To those of us who believe in the 2nd, we realize that even though times has changed the thinking behind the 2nd is as valid today as the day it was inked.

There should be a way for Trump to orchestrate a case in SCOTUS that would create a remarkable and spectacular precedent in support of the 2nd amendment. For example by repealing the NFA full-auto ban of 1986 and have some euro-commies start a legal suit against it, in SCOTUS ... The rest we know ... a SCOTUS sentence against the lefties, for the 2nd amendment would be a terrifying blow for the euro-commies.

Tanks can be stopped. I hope the state of the union never enters that phase though. If tanks ever roll into big cities in hostile form, they can be stopped. I shouldn't need to elaborate further, so anyone who can't figure this out, forget about it.

The 2nd amendment was ratified when the feds didn't have much of a bank account.
The 2nd amendment meant that the feds didn't have to buy weapons for what is now the National Guard.
Also, because what rickymouse said.
