Why does the US really need the 2nd Amendment?

It's in place to protect the citizens from a rogue government yet Trump is still in office.  It's not being used, so why not just repeal it?

    You don't have CLUE what an ACTUAL rouge government is. To you, it's anyone YOU simply didn't vote for, the Hell with the 63 million Americans who did.

    The second Amendment gives you the right to protect your self, now New Jersey takes that a way from you, but the rest of the country except California still thinks we have the right to protect our selves. If you lived out in the country you would understand why.  PROTECTION!

      "The second Amendment gives you the right to protect your self"? Really?  Show me where that is written in the amendment.

    So, is your point that we should disarm ourselves and bow to the government or is your point that you think Trump should not be President? And what is so rogue about this government? It is working perfectly as far as I can see.

    That's one of the faults with a written constitution -- lawyers and judges get to stop legislation that the electorate may want ,but vested interests don't .

    Trump is not the government. He is only the president. That is one third of the government and there are ways to remove him without guns. It is called impeachment.

      Now look at who is propping him up.  They are just as much of a problem.

    Sorry about your ignorance. Trump was elected by the people and has done nothing to justify removing him from office. The people trying to remove him from office are the rogues.

      "Trump was elected by the people"  No, he was not.

      So in support of your view of how the government should look.  Fascism in other words.  I don't think the framers of the Constitution had that in mind.
