    There are other reasons why one would own a firearm like self defense and deterrence.

    Just google "gun related deaths by country" and find your own sources so as not to include my bias.

    How long will it take before a law that's out dated by over 200 years be repealed?

    The founding fathers had the intention of arming their militia against the British.
    From here I think there is a chance, purely because I sense a change in US attitudes.

    It's complex, people who live rurally can have legitimate reasons to use guns as a work tool. But people in other countries use guns for the same reasons, gun law is much tighter and they don't repeatedly experience massacres by nutcases with open access to guns.

    Sooner or later (hopefully sooner) that penny will drop.

    Rights and laws? Rights are defined by laws.

    You can legally own a gun with minimal requirements because of the 2nd amendment. Go to most other developed nations and you won't find it so easy.
    Only positive rights are defined by laws. Negative rights are not they exist before any structure of law or government. If you want to get into metaphysics then you picked the right topic and you will be debated on it and probably lose.

    Of course we can own guns without being harrased by the government due to the 2nd Amendment. And if you go to other nations one will fnd in general that people do not have rights inherent but only those allowed by those in power. And some nations do not reconize the right to free speech, religion, the press or have a right not to incriminate one self at a trial, and etc. So one cannot use the argument that the US should not have a 2nd Amendment right because there are other nations that do not allow so.

    Given that the 2nd Amendment implies the possession of military grade arms then anything short of nuclear war. You did not think in a war setting that only the guns would be used do you?

    The Second amendment will never be repealed. There are way too many people in this country who long for the days of the mythical wild west, when 'real men' were defined by their guns.
