"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
On December 15, 1791 the Bill of Rights (the given name for the first ten amendments to the Constitution) was ratified. Many a debate has been had over the interesting way the Second Amendment was worded. We are in the midst of another one.
Seems from here that the Framers of the Constitution built into their system the solution to gun control. Don't like what the Second Amendment offers you? Get Congress to approve the wording of a new amendment and have 75% of the state legislatures ratify it.
Difficult to craft an amendment that a vast majority of the citizens and states of the U. S. of A. will support? Absolutely. So do the hard work anyway. It is the only way.
