    ... but if a Constitutional Convention was held now, the rightwingers would charge in and throw the whole damn thing out.

    "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"

    should become,

    a) 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, but only in conjunction with such regulated militia organizations as established by Congress.

    b) Individual access to arms, being a matter of public safety and security, will be subject to limitations deemed appropriate by Congress, state or local authorities, as duly elected by We, The People of the United States.
