    The amendment requires us to have gun control, a form of regulation. But it also says that the rights shall not be infringed. Any form of regulation is, basically, the limitation of something because of, or due to, certian circumstances. In this case, regulation is limitation of the 2nd amendment. Which is, by the amendment, not allowed.

    Ironic isn't it? The 2nd amendment both requires and forbids regulation.
    Couldn't they perhaps create another amendment to repeal the 2nd amendment like they did with the 18th amendment?
