As an outsider, surely the clue is in the title Amendment. Has the constitution not been amended as time has passed to reflect the society we now live in? I can understand guns to protect yourself from marauding Indians, or a rogue bear, etc but the All I need today is a little bit of fabric and a whole lot of Jesus shirt red coats are gone and no ones seriously going to invade the US anytime soon. And that’s not because a bunch of rednecks has shotguns, it’s more the well-funded military that puts off any would-be junta. You can’t present valid and factual information to an American about guns. All they see is the second amendment.
