I don't think the constitution is the problem. I think it is the politicians who are out for money and power.

Perhaps you just stay in your locked house all the time. I, perhaps being somewhat more confident and self-reliant and loving of life, go out into the real, and unfortunately occasionally violent world to enjoy the geese, the sun, the flowers, and my innocent but vulnerable kids .

Please post the video of you taking on even one bat-wielding attacker with your "love thy neighbour" mindset and nothing else. Gotta see it!

My philosophy?

"Prepare for the worst, but hope for the best" Sound sensible?

Or, your idea:

"Ignore realities. Denegrate realists. Assume the best".
Your weaknesses are not MY problem. Bye bye.

You did say you have no friends, right? Understandable if you don't care about anyone else's situation, weaknesses or needs. But just so you don't secretly worry about me, no need. As noted above, I have taken care of my life, courtesy, to some degree, of the United States Constitution.

Which we won't be re-writing in accordance with your decidedly anti-social outlook. PS: Watch out for the wolf-people!

Oh, there are other amendments...

people don't want some people to have free speech either. They want to accuse people of slander, or treason, or intolerance.

It's funny how people are threatened by ideas or viewpoints that conflict with their own.

Are you claiming that rapists are unable to rape an armed person?
Being a rapist doesn't necessarily mean being stupid.
Besidez, no gun will protect you against being drugged or manipulation so a rapist can have his way with you.

Let's not forget the woman who was IN THE SHOWER when a guy broke into her home, STOLE her gun, and used THAT as his weapon to perpetrate his rape!

Their viewpoints aren't what would make them dangerous, Rifleman. It's the possibility of them going nuts, and sniping at people from some tower somewhere.
