They cant realistically kill the line ( "you cant stop the signal" ), but if you disable every access device known to man it would have the same effect... Killing every phone ( and soon tablets ) in one swoop would go a long way towards that goal.

This also gets around adhoc and private mesh networks that the feds have no real access to control.

"If a gun can be anywhere, everywhere can be attacked quickly."

(Did you know that a convicted felon is not required to register his guns since that would violate his 5th amendment right to not self-incriminate? Look it up!)
Did you know a convict felon isn't allowed to own guns?

Your point in bringing up Haynes was... what?

where are yo getting 'and'?which version?

As passed by the Congress and preserved in the National Archives:[29]
A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

As ratified by the States and authenticated by Thomas Jefferson, then-Secretary of State:[30]
A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

It's kind of funny, if you read all the proposed wording, it becomes clear the word militia meant military, and not everyone being armed.
Ex:
"A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, being the best security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; but no one religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person."

You can' control you anger, so everyone else has to leave? no. If you cant control yourself, you leave.

"Something as basic as the 2nd Amendment is ABSOLUTELY NOT above our heads."
It's poorly written. IT was slapped together becasue people couldn't come to a solution to how to fund a military, and it shows.

If it was well written and easily understood we wouldn't be having this discussion.
Besides that, they constitution is designed to be changed with time.

That doesn't even get into the issue that the verbiage passed by congress is different then the verbiage that was ratified by the states.

You sir, are the doofus. Educate yourself.

Yo should look a little deeper.
A) Guns are seriously regulated, including need to account for every round. Good luck getting the level of regulation about firearm in the US.

B) Crime is related to education. the better educated the general populace, the less violent crime there is. This has noting to do with firearms at all. We see this in countries regardless of gun laws. Do you argue that all education including college is free? Or are you just picking some headline stat and using that without actual any understanding?
