Sadly, there is zero chance of ever returning to the original intent of the second.

Not within our lifetimes, no. Assuming we don't become a QOP Orwellian society (which is what I'm expecting), it may be possible in some far future. While there are more guns in circulation than ever, I read that fewer households have firearms (as a percentage of the population) than in the past 50(??) years. Don't remember where I read that stat.

Fewer households implies less support. If that trend continues, and we don't go full-Orwell, Heller may be overturned and progress will be made.

If we go full-Orwell, the jack-boots will come take them from you anyway and cart you off to the Ministry of Love.
