I'm sorry you are so easily bored, but no "strawman" here as the real world Morton Grove vs. Kennesaw results are prime examples of how MY and the Constitution's "way" (freedom to keep and bear arms) WORKS in the real world and proves my point so you had BETTER just continue to dismiss it (we all understand why you dismiss it).

One town prospers, and the other goes straight to hell.
If we were to devise an experimental situation to test both your position, and the Constitution's, Morton's Grove vs. Kennesaw would be a great one. Let's select two, very similar societies, then fully arm one, and fully disarm the other and see how it goes.
As a full blown socialist (I believe you have admitted this), you should realize that "we the people" understand what drives you and others like you with a "socialist bent" to disarm the population, so I say again... try to amend the constitution to "clarify" that which you find "unclear"... go ahead... try it because it's the only real opportunity you have. Otherwise, we will continue to fight, tooth and nail, every of your attempts to "work around" or subvert our right to bear arms, uninfringed.
The constitution doesn't "restrict" the rights of the people, it DOES RESTRICT the powers of government very specifically. It doesn't say "bear registered arms", or "bear certain types of arms", or "bear a certain, limited number of arms" because those are INFRINGMENTS on the right it guarantees the people.
The cards (and facts, and guns and bullets) are against you.
