More so now, than in most times in our history!! It is because there are so many calling for people to surrender that BASIC right, that it is so important to understand it, and know WHY it is so IMPORTANT!! The police have no mandate to protect the individual citizen, so where does that leave you, if someone breaks into your house, and tries to steal, or rape your wife or daughter? The police are there, a half hour later, to put up that yellow tape, and make reports, and gather evidence for a trial that might not ever happen. What about the mass-shootings, in "GUN-FREE ZONES"? What if a few were there, armed? Would the 'bad guy' think twice, if he knew that maybe 5% of the people in the theater, or just 5% of the teachers, in the school might be trained, armed, and ready to stop him? No gun, EVER has loaded itself and shot someone!! It is the CRAZY FCKS that do terrible things, WITH Guns, that make the news! Nobody runs stories about all the times someone presented a gun to an assailant, or a burglar, and they ran away!!4

It should stay the way it is. If you "re-word" one amendment what stopping the government from "re-wording" another? Yes it is still relevant to today. Because the last time I checked, The Constitution had no expiration date.1
