Every American adult should be able to own a gun.
There should be few restrictions to owning guns.
There should be few limits to the number or size of those guns.
What could go wrong.
As to the 2nd Amendment's statement on bearing arms: in the 200 years since it's inception it has proven itself to be indispensable.
What use would the removal of such an oft used and necessary stipulation be.
How many times would the citizenship have fallen to their own army's guns without that clause.
And, furthermore, the Constitution cannot be wrong: IT IS MORE THAN 200 YEARS OLD!!
As the bible gets older, it more and more reflects modern society.
The same applies to the American Constitution.
What does it matter if people are killed by gun-toting maniacs.
Do you really think that taking guns from maniacs will stop them from shooting people.
Anyway, it was the victims' fault they were killed: they didn't bring their god-given guns to the cinema to defend themselves with.
In an ideal world, everyone at the cinema would have been armed and there would have been 100's of people firing their guns in the crowded auditorium.

You can't be serious. That is a ridiculous notion in the extreme. Do you live in a alternative universe or something?
