    The whole Constitution needs an overhaul--especially the 10th amendment.

    Please support Sen. Coburn's call for a Constitutional Convention.

    Nothing at all will come out of DC until there is a groundswell of ALL Americans .

    Yes - The 2A needs to have "shall not be infringed" changed to "shall not be abridged or denied".

    Apparently you didn't read the thread and follow along. What I presented is an argument that has been made by some. But the end of my post, that you quoted, explains my position!

    I would prefer not to have to pay a special tax to own a suppressor for hearing safety or possess a rifle with a barrel shorter than what the government deems as legal...

    You're not a 2nd amendment folk? What other parts of the constitution do you take issue with as well?

    Re: Do you think the second amendment needs amended?

    It is badly written and allows for intelligent people to honestly disagree. The 2nd part of the sentence seems to be the "money sentence" or the main idea. The first part - "a well-regulated militia..." is a dependent clause to that 2nd part (the "rights of the people to bear keep and bear arms...").
    The first part, the dependent clause part about a well regulated militia, should be eliminated leaving "the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" to stand alone.

    The US does not want to follow the example set in places like "gun-free" Bermuda or the British Virgin Islands or Northern Ireland with a high murder rate or follow Australia which made guns harder to own and has seen an increase in per capita violent crimes (despite a lowering of homicide rates). Crime in the US is going down while the number of firearm permits is escalating.
