    it has also held that the government may regulate or place some limits on the manufacture, ownership and sale of firearms or other weapons.

    So what's the problem?

    Democrats win

    Yes, I hate it when that happens. It can lead to misunderstandings.

    Real answer: The Second Amendment is proof that trusting government to recognize a fundamental right is a shitty idea.

    Well the democrats always win. The GOP says they want to win, and the get voted into office only to say that they changed their minds, much like Obamacare.

    Really there is no opposition party.

    The 2nd exists primarily to ensure the people, have the ability to throw off an oppressive government, whose consent to govern has been revoked by the people.

    The real unspoken objection to the right to bear arms coming from the left is that by and large firearms are being used by the left to commit crimes on/against one another.

    In other words, we're trusting the government to protect the right of the people to violently overthrow it.

    Look, just because the Federal government locked up innocent Japanese Americans in no way means they can't be trusted to recognize our fundamental rights under the Constitution. It's just that they don't care.
