There are so many ways to skirt the 2nd Amendment. Seriously, I know you're not this dumb. Bans on certain types of weapons. Bans on ammo. Restrictions on where you can and can't have your gun. Of course, the bad guys don't care about any of this.
Move to New York City and try to buy a RIFLE - not an "assault" rifle, but just a regular old hunting rifle - and see what kind of crap you have to go through to get one. Delaying tactics like background checks filing out applications with no assurance that it will ever be reviewed or approved, for whatever reason, exorbitant (and nonrefundable) fees, they've got it covered. One of my best friends couldn't get a gun in New York City because his liberal brainwashed wife wouldn't sign off on it - in NYC, every adult in the domicile must sign off on a person buying a gun. Just one more way for Bloomberg to wipe his ass with the constitution.
Imagine having to get someone else's permission in the household before you were allowed to speak you mind in public, then waiting six months for a background check and your application to clear. Maybe. But you don't get your fee back one way or another.
Rights are rights. Except when scumbag politicians deny them and get away with it.
