Isn't that the purpose of the second amendment to the constitution?

<quoted text>You are always hearing NRA people and guns' rights people saying you should not be allowed to change or mess with the Constitution, it is sacred. However, the original Constitution did not have guns' rights, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and many other things. It was designed by the original Constitution to have those rights be given by the States and each State could be different. You might have guns' rights in Virginia but not in Massachusetts depending on what each state wanted. There was strong opposition to the original Constitution because it did not provide for the rights most people felt they had fought for. Thus, the Original Constitution was changed to add the Bill of Rights which is the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution. So when you listen to these ignorant people rant that the Constitution was never meant to be changed and guns' rights are basic, then you are listening to a total contradiction. If the original Constitution had not been changed and if you were to go back to the original Constitution then you would have no guns' rights. Is that explanation enough?
According to what you just wrote, you are contradicting yourself. You stated at the end of your post: that If the original Constitution had not been changed and if you were to go back to the original Constitution then you would have no guns' rights. Earlier in the post you said: You might have guns' rights in Virginia but not in Massachusetts depending on what each state wanted. So was TN one of the states that wanted gun rights or one that didn't? I know which way that I'd bet!

Tennessee became a state in 1796, if my memory is correct.

I knew that it was before Tennessee became a state. I was too lazy to look it up.
