1. The Constitution would not have stand if not for the Bill of Rights, of which the 2nd amendment was included, as not all states were in accord with
the orignal constitution itself. It was only after the Bill of Rights was legislated that the Constitution stood as it is and served the nation well
for 200+ years.
2, Any further amendments, by right of logic and the voice of the majority, can be submitted for legislation approval, BUT if only ABSOLUTELY
necessary and do save the nation.
Had this call for the 2nd amendment change, or infringement, or even its repeal necessary?
Had what the loud vocal minority who called for this change been sound in their proposal - to strip law abidding citizens and their future generations
of their weapons or the RIGHT to own such weapons for self protection, their loved ones and the nation, WITHOUT stopping or resolving the root problem
of mental health and other social issues that are causing violence, not only in USA, but worldwide as well?
3. USA is NOT a banana state whereby amendments and even the entire constitutions are replaced with great regularity, often done thoughtlessly for
either political gain, allowing the LOUD but minority to rule, or just out of plain stupidities.
May americans not be foolish to let the LOUD vocal minority disneyland inhabitants whom love to use the pity and victim cards to sway emotional minds,
and potential tyrants and criminals who can't wait for a disarmed people so that they can rule with impunity.
Let not the founding fathers' blood and sacrifices be in vain, for they understood human nature well, and thus the creation of the sacred Constitution
that had stood the test of time for 200+ years and more to come, and had served and protected the People well with a just rule of law, a document
that will NEVER allow tyrants to ever rule again.
