For starters it is much more likely that someone would have been able to jump him successfully

Bump

Freedom of speech which would protect the regulation of games promoting violence is not part of European freedom of speech. The European Convention on Human Rights leaves this major caveat.

"The exercise of these freedoms, since it carries with it duties and responsibilities, may be subject to such formalities, conditions, restrictions or penalties as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society, in the interests of national security, territorial integrity or public safety, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the protection of health or morals, for the protection of the reputation or the rights of others, for preventing the disclosure of information received in confidence, or for maintaining the authority and impartiality of the judiciary."

Ok now...
Let's go slowly.

1.The right to property is certainly enshrined in the Constitution.
2. At the time of it's writing, this included land, horses, chulent beans, oil lamps and slaves.
3. Over time, culture changed, and negros came to be considered persons, particularly in the North.

This process was reflected throughout court decisions.
Both Vermont and Massachusetts had abolished slavery by the time the Bill of rights was ratified. Over the next 25 years a bunch of other states did as well. How could they have been unconstitutional despite whatever crooked training you are using to show that. Either way this is nothing more than a distraction and shows more about your methods of reasoning than anything else.

Ok...
"No person shall ... be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law"
Slaves were considered property.
COME ON
That is not a protected right. In fact states had abolished slavery despite that amendment prior to the ratification of the 13th amendment with some states having abolished it prior to ratification of the Bill of Rights.

This is total ignorance.

Last I checked, freedom of expression is a core freedom, characteristic of every democracy. How you would police every game, video, movie etc. and decide what could and can't be published is a question best answered by totalitarian regimes.
 The "right" to bear arms is a wrinkle unique to America.

The USA used to have other constitutionally enshrined "rights" as well, such as the right to own a human being. These were eliminated as part of a culture change. Other "rights" never before imagined have been read into the Constitution by the courts.

Slowly, (glacially slowly) the mood in the country is changing.

It will take time, but gun control will  eventually be like Gay marriage.
Where was there a right to own slaves enshrined in the constitution?

Definitely less condescending. There's nothing wrong with eating herring. Someone who doesn't eat it constantly might be bothered by the smell, but that's just a cultural difference, not something negative
So if some blogger would write that their elal flight smelled like a mix of salty fish and mikva chlorine and he found out to be disgusting but maybe it is just a cultural thing you would be okay with that?

I specifically mentioned that I thought it was not a matter of bad hygiene, but something that bothers people from a different culture because they don't eat the same food. Very different from the condescending tone it feel others have used
So if would say that it stinks like herring you would be okay?

After some back and forth this is what I got @Dan @JJ

Very seldom because his press secretaries didn't need to defend a mentally unstable president.
Yeah they had to defend strategic lies.

Yup. Passing limited sort of maybe bumpstock plus waiting period plus background check + fill in the blanks might add a few days in between mass shootings, but only a pretty drastic curtailment of 2nd amendment rights will really accomplish anything. And unfortunately, that will take a culture change.
Yeah so lets do nothing. Whats a couple of extra shooting here and there?
