I anticipate that any attempt by the government to repeal the 2nd Amendment would result in civil war.

Three-fourths of the states must agree in order to, as you put it, "repeal" the Second Amendment. The government cannot just wake up one morning and do so. Civil war, really? Who's using emotion in this debate again?

Libruls may as well forget even trying to repeal the 2nd Amendment and replacing it with some type of "regulation."

No repeal is required. The Supreme Court in Heller recognized room for reasonable governmental regulation of Second Amendment rights. Legal challenges to the 1994 assault weapons ban failed. They would fail again if assault weapons are banned once more.
