There is a fallacy in your thought process. The problem does not lie with the Second Amendment GUARANTEEING the right of a two times convicted serial rapist having a gun because regardless of the law he will. The problem lies with the two times convicted serial rapist being allowed to walk amongst us. What is the difference if hes raping is facilitated with the use of a gun, knife, broken bottle, brick or a hammer? Say knife or brick or hammer along with the word rape and it oh my, she was raped. Say raped at gun point and its the gun that becomes the focal point. Why? Emotion and no other reason! Yes, I'm a 100% supporter of the 2nd. Amendment. Funny how they have picked and chosen which Amendments override states rights(?) and which one don't. Oh! And heres another little tid-bit for you. The states have no rights. Only The People have rights. The Constitution doesnt grant rights it acknowledges them and tells the government what it CAN and CAN NOT DO Amendment 10 - Powers of the States and People. The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Notice it doesnt say rights it says POWERS.
