There is no such human right to have a gun. Against burglar, funny, lot's of statistics show that owning a gun gives you a higher percentage of getting killed in a burglary or your loved ones.
Against an invasion army. ARE YOU ------- KIDDING ME? how does that work out in your mind. Someone lands in the US (lol?). Then they, whoever THEY are, come to your house with their tanks, artillery is shooting at your house, atomic missiles land left and right of you and you stand at your porch with your puny gun and thank god for the second Amendment? Is that how it plays out in your head when you put "defend against invading army" as an argument?
The second Amendment comes from a time where where people had to fight bears and wolves off their property and where the governments army consisted of muskets and canons ffs. Also it was not put in place to protect against an invading army but against your own government in case it goes bananas, which in todays terms is ridiculous of corse, since, you know, the us military has hardly any muskets anymore.
Btw your precious second Amendment, this year alone, killed more people than all acts of terror combined in the history of the us. Think about that if you want to be "protected"
