    after all, we've never bothered to repeal the 3rd Amendment either, even though it's essentially moot at this point. No military officer is going to show up and demand to quarter soldiers in your house and we all pay for a "standing army" that would have made the Founders run screaming for their muskets to disband it (i.e., we pay in a practical, collective sense for things that are expressly forbidden at an individual level) and yet the 3rd stays intact. So the idea that we'll somehow repeal the 2nd Amendment is at best a pipe-dream.

    I'll have to agree as a gun-owning kossack that the vast majority of us are of the "type 2" outlined by the diarist; those who like our guns just fine but know that reasonable restrictions on the 2nd Amendment are the only solution to the madness of the right-wing, anti-government, gun-nut impulse that wants any gun at any time for any person to be the only interpretation of the 2nd Amendment that holds sway.
