    2a, but simplified for polticians and other toddlers.

    The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. No matter how big or small, deadly or not, this is ironclad.

        I could see an interpretation of this where the government doesn’t make it illegal for you to own any weapon but makes selling them illegal. After all, it’s not infringing on your right to have them, it just regulates the market for weapons, which isn’t forbidden by the letter of the law.

          True that is a way around it but then it would basically have the exact problem the 2nd amendment already has, Licensing can already be used on the 2nd amendment and many other amendments. For it to really work you would need to add paragraphs, probably a whole book to the amendment of what is and is not covered, and yet somehow have it be future proof too.
