Constitutionality is defined by what the Supreme Court says it is. The present court is very fluid and by the time anything currently being proposed reaches the Supreme Court, the Court will probably contain at least one more person who sees things Obama's way.
The violation of the spirit of the 2nd amendment will be deemed perfectly legal no matter how far it is from what the Founding Fathers intended the amendment to accomplish. So there will be no technical violation of the 2nd amendment.
In 2010, the right for people to keep handguns in their house for personal protection only passed the Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote. That's how close we already are to a court which doesn't believe in the 2nd amendment. After Obama is done making appointments, the 2nd amendment as we know it may be done for. The laws passed by liberals will still be constitutional because the court will deem them to be so. But the 2nd amendment will be neutered.
You've misinterpreted the court decision. It wasn't about whether people could keep firearms in their homes, but whether the 2nd Amendment trumped state and local rights.
That was the issue in Monday’s case, McDonald v. City of Chicago. Chicago maintains a handgun ban similar to the ban struck down in Washington. But it wasn’t clear from prior Supreme Court precedent whether Second Amendment protections extended to cities and states.
