Why do we allow gun ownership in the USA when guns have last to so much senseless killing? Why does the 2nd Amendment matter in the 2000's?
Shouldn't we write an updated constitution?
Columbine, Virginia Tech, Parkland, Las Vegas, Pulse Nightclub, etc......
Why do we need to own guns, why can't just police and military have them? Isn't letting anyone have them like letting anyone have bombs would be?

Firearm ownership is protected, as you know, by the 2nd Amendment. That answers your first question. You can make a legit argument that it needs to be updated but that will not happen .... American Patriots will not allow it.
If you're sane, you understand the Right to life. By extension, there is a natural Right to defend one's life. And because humans use tools, we have a natural Right to use tools ... that means weapons ... and weapons means firearms.

One of the basic rights of any creature is self defense. Every single animal out there will defend itself. Man is no different. But to defend yourself against an equally smart creature you need the best defense you can do. It is stupid to think you have a right of self defense and then say you can only do it with your fists. There is no better personal defense weapon that everyone can use than a handgun. Besides the issue of self defense, there is also the 1949 Geneva Conventions that recognizes the right of a nation to defend itself against invaders. In that, you have the Regular forces (Full time) Reserve forces (Part time) and levee en masse. That is the civilians taking up arms to drive out an invader. Just how can they do that if they have no weapons? Invade the USA and you will run into 100,000,000 Americans with guns and a trillion rounds of ammo.

The Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment to ensure that the U.S government would not be able to control the people. Only fools whine to be powerless before their government. The U.S government used lies and misinformation to acquire 4 FISA warrants against Carter Page. How much more government abuse would there be if the people in government knew that people could never resist their demands.
