There is NO Constitutional Right to own a gun.

Some people have convinced themselves, and try to convince others, that ownership of guns is protected by the U.S. Constitution. This is completely false.

The portion of the Constitution used to try to justify this claim is the 2nd Amendment.

“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.”

Even a quick read shows that the word ‘own’ is not anywhere in the 2nd Amendment. So, there is NO Constitutional Right of gun ownership.
