They can severely limit it or render it toothless via the Supreme Court. And given that the next POTUS will have one or maybe two SCOTUS appointments to make, it makes for a very scary scenario indeed.
Once the Second Amendment is hobbled, the next to go will be the First Amendment, through the Fairness Doctrine.

Ummmm, that's why we have guns. Not going to happen. If someone says "Hey, give me your guns!" you say "I have a right given to be by our founding fathersto possess these weapons! Now get off my lawn or I will start shooting!" This only applies if you are not a felon or mentally unstable.
This also might seem suprising but you can actually make a gun. They don't grow on magical gun trees so if you really want a gun you can have one fabricated that will shoot fully automatically if you choose.
Natural rights (or inalienable rights) are rights which are not contingent upon the laws, customs, or beliefs or a particular society or polity. In contrast, legal rights (sometimes also called civil rights) are rights conveyed by a particular legal or political entity, rights as enshrined in law, and as such are contingent upon local laws, customs, or beliefs. Natural rights are thus necessarily universal, whereas legal rights are culturally and politically relative.
