    Maybe not obsolete but antiquated, out of date...

    ... it needs to be updated to reflect the times...

    ... and the threat of overkill firepower...

    ... for the average citizen.
    :cool:

    It's definitely not the most important amendment, like most conservatives argue, but it's not obsolete. We're the United Freakin States. We were founded on a revolutionary crazy notion that people are allowed to be as free as they want.

    If you take away that crazy, then we're closer to being like the French. And no one wants that.

    I am also a gun lover, but the 2nd Amendment will be changed. It's just a matter of time...

    The Constitution exist only in the context of its case law, as interpreted by the Supreme Court, as authorized by the doctrine of judicial review.

    Neither the Constitution nor any of its Amendments are ‘obsolete.’

    Whatever the current case law might be concerning the Second Amendment, however, further restrictions, regulations, or even bans will do little to curtail gun violence.

    The genius of the Constitution is it compels us to seek actual solutions to our many problems; be it abortion, campaign finance reform, or gun violence, the Constitution prevents us from taking the ‘easy route’ often taken by dictatorships and totalitarian regimes, where the liberty of the people is destroyed.

    This does not mean we are helpless to do nothing, at the mercy of strict, unyielding jurisprudence protecting the rights of gun owners; rather, it means we must find solutions based on facts and evidence, and be prepared to address and acknowledge painful, embarrassing aspects of our society and culture.
