I would recommend sticking with simply the text of the second amendment, move on to current jurisprudence (Heller v D.C; MacDonald v Chicago) mention a few carry cases currently working their way to through the courts (Williams v Maryland; Peruta v San Diego; Peterson v LaCabe) without stating an opinion on the matter (this allows you to avoid becoming to political by simply noting that the courts will have to decide) and then return to the founding fathers. That approach ensures that anyone who complains is arguing against the Supreme Court instead of you.
I'm not sure if you have spent any time with the issue of incorporation (application of the bill of rights to the states via the 14th amendment) but it's likely to come up when you get to amendments that are only partially incorporated (fifth, eighth) or not incorporated at all (seventh).
Those who will not govern their own behavior are slaves waiting for a master; one will surely find them.

That was one of the funniest lines I've encountered, ever! And I've been enjoying gags for well over a half-century.
