I'm no legal scholar, but I think if it were antiquated it wouldn't hold up to legal challenges. But it has, at the highest levels of our judicial branch. I doubt the 3rd amendment would survive such a challenge, for instance.
Call it a cop out, but we wouldn't be talking about otherwise.
This argument that the people need guns to protect themselves from tyranny hasn't exactly held up over the years. Take a second and think about an oppressed minority arming themselves to defend against the government.
Oops. They've tried that, and people renounced them as terrorists. And they were, because people who take up arms against their government are "terrorists."*

"Ignorance loves company. The truly stupid resent those who are not and won’t be satisfied until they’ve burned all the books, torn down the libraries, closed the universities, and made it impossible for anyone else not to share their own proud ignorance." -Fred Clark, Patheos.com
How many people do you honestly think are armed to the teeth because they're afraid of the government? Most of those people shouldn't even have guns anyway.
Just look at all the other modern countries in the world.
Why is it that you think you NEED to be armed? There's no other first World country that is so heavily armed and they seem to be doing just fine. Most of them have less than 1% of the gun deaths too and they rarely, if ever, have any mass shootings.
Do you think there's a correlation?
Latest reports are that 4 handguns were found in the school, and the AR-15 remained behind in the car.
MSNBC: Shooter Had 4 Handguns
That won't help the agenda much now will it...
Remember big brother is always watching....
oh lord, here we go....
Guy had nothing to do with it and reports were scrubbed to protect his privacy.
Pretend for a few minutes not to be dumb as a tree stump.
I said you need to strive to better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the try.
