    Can the 2nd, 4th and 5th amendment ever be changed without creating a new government?

    The 2nd Amendment allows citizens to own nuclear bombs.

    The 4th Amendment prohibits road blocks designed to catch drunk drivers.

    The 5th Amendment allows people to ignore questions from cops.

    Americans aren't the same in 2019 as they were in 1789. There were no nuclear bombs to consider. There were no intoxicated persons driving 2000 lb. hunks of metal at 60mph. There were no police officers. (Maybe a sheriff or two but not a police force like we know today) I think all Americans agree that you shouldn't own nuclear weapons, cops should capture drunk drivers and people should answer cops questions. However, aren't the Bill of Rights written in stone so to speak? They can't ever be removed? or can they? Most Americans in 2019 disagree with the objective if the 2nd, 4th and 5th Amendment.

    If you can afford a mansion that can hold a nuclear weapon, you’re most probably never going to use it.

    Probably not. Other than testing, only two have ever been used in the history of the world.

    That’s not even the point; they are ridiculously gigantic.

    True. They are quite large in comparison to the average hand gun.

    Amendments can be repealed without changing anything

    I call Shenanigans.

    Please provide a link to anyone other than a fringe kook who thinks individuals should have nuclear bombs.

    It was our fringe kook forefathers who thought the people should be militarily capable of defeating the government if it ever stopped too far out of bounds. We as Americans don't believe that any more.

    Second Amendment
