The Supreme Court is a risk---I'll grant that. But there are
a few things to consider about the 2nd Ammendment. First,
changing that without the consent of the People would be a
MAJOR issue that I do not believe would be allowed to survive.
First consider those who have sworn an oath to protect the US
Constitution and the Bill of Rights from ALL enemies, foreign and domestic. Second, consider what such a
change would do to Alaska, where hunting is not only a
way of life, it's the way for getting meat onto the
table. Finally, such a change might even be the last
straw for Texas, which might even vote to go back to
being The Republic Of Texas. I have family in Texas,
and would be moving back there in a
heartbeat if that happened......
Oh, and one more point.... I strongly doubt that obama
will get re-elected, especially after this week's debate
(that, I believe, was the last nail for his hopes of a
second term). So even if he did change anything as a
lame duck, Romney would just undo it all in January. I
can't say that's 100% certain, of course, but still....
Either way, I seriously doubt that he'd get away with
changing the 2nd Ammendment on his own. I can imagine
all kinds of bad things happening if he tried. At least
one of those, I've heard mentioned by someone else, so
I might not be crazy for thinking it'd happen, but I'm
still not going to mention it....
