Look, I'm an advocate of the 2nd amendment. But, I also know that we are facing extremely negative views with respect to guns. I see this as an opportunity. There are many other problems with our system of government (e.g., congressional ineptitude) that may outweigh an absolute right to own guns. It seems to me that we might find a way to trade some gun rights for a better control over our government. At least, it is a starting point for negotiations. I feel that the liberals will not be able to give up their rights, but they will look like fools if we propose reasonable alternatives.
