I'll let Beans say it, as he did in the comments:
The 2nd Amendment isn't about guns. It is about the God-given right of self defense.
Take away or control guns, then it's just a step away to taking away common household items that can be used for self defense, like hammers, kitchen knives, baseball bats, golf clubs. Like, oh, say, what is happening in (formerly) Great Britain.
Guns are just the big ticket items. What about butterfly or switchblade knifes? Canes? Umbrellas with sharp ends (no, really, umbrellas used to come with a somewhat spike rather than the rather blunted ends)?
God-given right to self defense. With an F-84G fully armed with bombs and rockets, if necessary and I can afford it
