Kind of surprised Ivhon deleted his thread. Was pretty bitter I guess but for all that probably more sensible.
Not sure why you're taking issue. Even if we did excise the 2nd Amendment at the federal level (which certainly seems impossible, but certainly not insensible), that would still leave it open to individual action at the state and local level. Indeed it is the vague wording of the 2nd Amendment that has created so much of the difficulty in providing gun control at present at the state and local level, areas which once allowed far more nuanced degrees of interpretation from community to community prior to Scalia's reinterpretation of the 2nd Amendment rendered it akin to the 11th Commandment in the eyes of republicans.
