    The public has the power to change the constitution.
    I see nothing wrong with campaigning to change legislation that you disagree with. I wouldn't hold my breath, because I believe a significant majority of Americans prefer to keep the 2nd amendment, but there is no reason that you shouldn't be allowed to try to convince them that they are better off without it. If you really want to follow through with this, you would have to accept that you have a very low probability of accomplishing anything. If you can justify spending your life in this manner, then I will applaud your efforts.

    Fortunately we have retained our Sovereignity and so have banned guns with the explicit purpose to stop gun massacres. And it's worked.

    Britain for instance has lost her Sovereignity to the European Union (EU), while the USA has lost her Sovereignity to an ideological Constitution. While Oz retains our Sovereign Parliament under a simple administrative Constitution and Conventions, free from outside interference.

    Is this luck or good management, or is this because we are true to our values of liberal democracy and the limitation of power, and the greatest good for the greatest number?

    And why is the Sovereignity of Britain and the USA compromised today?

    Because we have different opinions as countries.

    It's not.

    Britain follows the dictates of the EU while the USA follows the dictates of an ideological Constitution.

    And the USA Constitution was written by the bourgeoise, of the bourgeoise and for the bourgeoise

    Any ideology -
    1. serves interests
    2. is pre-digested thought
    3. has a demonology.

    So the USA Constitution serves the interests of the bourgeoise and demonises socialists.

    Americans have lost control of their country and can't even stop continuing gun massacres.

    You should elaborate on this. Wouldn't a government have an obligation to conduct itself within the boundaries established by a constitution? We can change the constitution whenever we want to, we just have to want it hard enough. Right now, the American people don't want this, so one would think that going against the will of the people would be the worst possible decision a government could make.

    It is not my problem that you have guns. I merely take issue with the nothing-can-ever-change arguments people employ to protect them.
