Actually it gives ua the right to "bear arms". Clearly that means humans are legally allowed to confiscate and own any weapons previously owned by bears.

Bears with frickin' laser beams attached to their heads?
The law? The law is a human institution...

The Second Amendment (Amendment II) to the United States Constitution is the part of the United States Bill of Rights that protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms. It was adopted on December 15, 1791, along with the rest of the Bill of Rights.


In 2008 and 2010, the Supreme Court issued two Second Amendment decisions. In District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects an individual's right to possess a firearm, unconnected to service in a militia[sup][1][/sup][sup][2][/sup] and to use that arm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense within the home. In dicta, the Court listed many longstanding prohibitions and restrictions on firearms possession as being consistent with the Second Amendment.[sup][3][/sup] In McDonald v. Chicago, 561 U.S. 3025 (2010), the Court ruled that the Second Amendment limits state and local governments to the same extent that it limits the federal government.[sup][4][/sup]

I cannot even entertain the possibility that this was a serious question.
I am not a lawyer.

For me I'll use the benefit of the doubt. A user with a name I don't recognize and one post. I'm OK with putting the real answer out there.

The Bill of Rights spells out the rights of the people by the founding fathers.  The 2nd amendment foresaw that the rest of the amendments would mean nothing to the people without a viable way to protect those rights.  The 2nd amendment gives the people the means and responsibility to protect themselves from criminals, foreign governments and anyone who tries to destroy the constitution of the U.S.  

 This was so important to the founding fathers that they put it second.  To me that says the only thing they valued higher than the right to bear arms was the right to speak your mind/freedom of speech. imo/ymmv
Everytime we look the other way when someone else loses rights we disagree with, we make it easier to lose the rights we support.
