Look, you can say what you want, but the 2nd Amendment in no way states that you have a right to bear any and all arms.
There are currently numerous different types of arms that you are either prohibited from possessing or have very restrictive guidelines associated with them, like bazookas, rocket propelled grenades, machine guns, hand grenades, land mines, bombs, nuclear and/or chemical weapons, etc... and the U.S. Supreme Court has upheld those restrictions as being "Constitutional."
Based on that alone, I'd have to say that your argument insisting that the 2nd Amendment is somehow "all-inclusive" has no legal foundation and is pretty much based on personal opinion and ideology.
IMO, it is indeed inevitable that sooner or later, the 2nd Amendment will indeed be re-visited and in all likelihood, modified to some degree. When that does eventually happen, I doubt it will be me who has their floor pulled out from under them.
I am in no way afraid of the issue of amending it and in case you hadn't noticed, a clear majority of americans are also in favor of tighter guns restrictions.
If I were you, I'd be careful of what I ask for. You just might get it!
The way I understand it "liberals" believe that people are inherently good, but sometimes do bad things when they get in situations where they don't have any other choices. They need to be educated and nurtured by superior people so they don't get into those situations.
"Progressives" believe that people are inherently bad, and need to be controlled by superior people who are smarter and more morally intelligent.
Either way, it involves somebody thinking they're superior to somebody else.
It doesn't have to as the right isn't designed to state I can have this this and this. It states, plainly and clearly, the right to bear arms. It does not have restrictions, it does not state one can bear this, but not that.
It is Progressives and the controlling Govt infected with Progressives that have turned it to what we have today.
