Most people want reasonable action
As for the current issue of the day -- guns -- my bet is if you took a poll, you would find that an overwhelming majority of those who want changes to gun control laws, in no way shape or form want to overturn the Second Amendment. They are less concerned with assault weapons then they are with clips that hold 30 rounds. They are not concerned that their neighbor has 20 guns, they are concerned that every one of the weapons was purchased without a single background check.
Most of us demanding changes, want changes only to the types of allowable guns and size of clips. We also want changes to how they can be acquired, We want changes to health-care laws that prevent psychologists from giving out the names of people they diagnose as unstable. We want changes to liability of gun owners (your kids uses your gun to shoot someone, you are also held responsible.) We want reasonable, responsible change to control violence, and guns just happen to be part not all of the equation.
