I don't think I would vote for a law like that but I wouldn't be opposed to a law that is already on the books.
OK, I don't have time to respond at length right now (stupid classes!!!), but I will get back to this. In the mean time, I figured I'd be helpful & post the 2nd Amendment, so that anyone jumping into this conversation can have the source document at hand & not guess at the wording:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
