    If we banned the Second Amendment - which I DO NOT favor doing - it would be done via another Constitutional Amendment. To pass one would require support of an overwhelming number in both houses in Congress - 2/3 - plus the legislatures of 3/4 of the states. That could not be done without large and significant support from the citizenry. This would be impossible now. However, if the winds changed and it was possible, I would then have a choice to live in America with all its great things or leave. And I would simply accept the will of the people and make due the best I could.

    By nature, I am not a violent person and to participate in a violent revolution would require a whole lot more than that for me to join in.
    Actually, all it would take is Congress passing a law, the President signing it, and five old people deciding the SA had been misinterpreted all these years.

    The rest of the world would sit back and watch and wait for an opportunity as the US turns into a hellhole

    If you believe that, you are horribly misinformed about the process as well as reading the national political temperature.

    I didn't say it would happen in the current envionment, only that that is all it would take. If that is incorrect, please explain how the process would prevent it.

    If the sun exploded, it would be a bloody mess here on this planet. If the SA was removed from the Constitution, which it would be impossible, our nation would be a bloody mess.

    The good citizens of the USA would never have the stomach for an armed revolt if the Supreme Court ruled that the SA did not apply to private persons.

    It would not have to be repealed; only reinterpreted, and five old people could do that.

    I have already explained to you the process of overriding a portion of the Constitution like the current Second Amendment. 2/3 of both houses of Congress then the ratification by 3/4 of the individual state legislatures.

    This from someone living in a nation where the gun owners willingly handed over their arms to the government and leave themselves defenseless. We need to learn from the stupidity of what you Aussies did, and the Scots and the English. It's that simple.
