61. Almost right, it's the Supreme Court's interpretation that counts.

Remember up until the Heller decision the prevailing view of the court was that the 2nd amendment was a single statement. and 'well regulated', meant that controls could be imposed on gun usage and display, and ownership could be dependent on required training.

I'm probably too old to see it reversed, it took 60 years to overturn Plessy v. Ferguson and I don't have that much time left.

And speaking of well regulated look what Australia did when they had a mass shooting in Port Arthur in 1996:

The political will to do that is not here, where lost lives are just the cost of freedom (ask the NRA). So now we're living where all of us have to be ready at any time to die for someone's 'freedom'.
