66% IRCC, and a referendum in itself isn't a legally binding contract anyway, it's merely the suggestion of the people, which could then be used to trigger a congressional vote.(Original post by andreasz)
Yes but ammendments can only be made by Congress (and I think there needs to be a 75% concencus), not referenda.
You can't really say that the 2nd Ammendment only applies to the weapons of that era. The same argument could be used to limit free speech on the internet (It could be argued that the 1st Ammendment only applies to printed press).

Basing anything regarding guns of the second amendment is moronic whether or not it can be changed. The text clearly states "A well regulated Militia". Nothing about the possession of guns in the USA atm is "well regulated", or where it is it's badly enforced. If every state wants to have a publicly funded security force that answers to a board of elected governors from said state then sounds grand. They can sit around not having to protect the people from tyranny all they like...
