A simple poll on the second amendment.

In light of the Michigan shooter, I wondered where we all are right now.

Couldn't vote for the first option because it allows for discarding 2A.

Constitutional law applying to all states is necessary for effective gun control. 2A needs to be modified, not discarded.

Anyone could have predicted the result, which will have no impact whatsoever on changing or eliminating it.
