  •  I for one am not for repealing any of the (3+ / 0-)

    amendments that make up the Bill of Rights. Frankly, on principle. However, it seems to me that what makes the Second Amendment toxic is not what it says, but how the SCOTUS has interpreted it. Perhaps given what's happened, some gun regulation that's passes will end up being challenged and the Supremes will decide that they were wrong on the personal right interpretation.

      this point. In my Constitutional Law class the exceptions to the rule that the SCOTUS will not reverse itself are taught. Specifically because they happen so rarely.

      There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.
