When bad actions happen, such as what took place in Las Vegas, some people are so quick and desperate to propose methods to deter such actions from occurring in the future that they have no care on the planet about whether or not such deterrents violate the United States Constitution.
Case in point: people who desire weapon constraints.
They desire action to be taken on this problem based on their emotions, moral entrepreneurship, amount of such events which take place and contrast of weapon laws with other countries.
But they can never ever back up their wishes with the Constitution.
They believe the former supersedes it, and can just hypothesize theoretical beliefs of the Creators if they lived today. Like it or not, the Constitution does not put a limit on how many guns or how much ammunition people can own, nor does it permit modifications to be waived or suspended in times of crisis.
The only constitutional method for any of that to be altered is for the process mentioned in Post 5 to be followed.
Anybody who believes otherwise takes liberty for given.
