Like I said, a constitution which is followed to the letter, in very black and white terms, which leads to a contravention of the public good and violates common sense, then becomes a suicide pact - people supporting societal destruction because the mechanisms involved happen to be protected by the Supreme Document. The classic case here is yelling fire in a crowded theater. If no abridgement of free speech can be sanctioned by society then anonymous troublemakers can disrupt the gatherings of thousands and possibly leading to people dying from being trampled. As I noted in my first comment, this mental illness vector for gun confiscation has the potential to be abused. When people are mentally ill, when they're delusional, when they think that their cat is giving them orders to kill people, society is better off with those people not having the means to follow through on what the cat tells them to do. As Andi pointed out if you're 4 years old you can't go and buy a firearm with your allowance money. The right to bear arms is not absolute. See felons.
