On 7 Oct 58, I took the Oath of Enlistment in the U.S. Navy. As part of that Oath, I swore to “uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

If Mayor Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Guns and a few other anti-NRA groups get together and elect a Congress that is not beholden to special interests, well, you never can tell what might happen.
