In response to your statement, "Seeing as how it would be a violation of the Constitution, assuming amendments weren't passed by the legislature repealing the 2nd amendment, it would be a symptom of a much, much larger problem.",
You are correct. But have we not noticed how the Constitution has been violated in many cases through the years by the making of items protected by it appear as if offensive and thus unconstitutional and must be banned?
Consider the classic example of constitutionally protected public prayer that was made to appears as a violation of the first amendment and thus banned because it's supposedly offensive to non-Christians. Unlike robbery, voluntary prayer is not offensive by nature but instead a blessing for all. Scripture instructs that all (regardless the nationality) should always pray and faint not (Luke 18:1). Look at the consequent chaos around us after 60 years with God thrown out of public education. Was anyone punished for this unconstitutional ban?
Although true that public gun safety should always be top priority, isn't there also a danger of overstressing to the point of fanaticism? Such can serve as another means for getting around the constitution that protects the rights to bear arms. We must be aware of the danger of ulterior motives.
Aren't there many other grave dangers to the public that should be dealt with NOW!? Do we hear very much about black on black violence for example?
