If a new bill that has been introduced in Congress eventually becomes law, the 2nd Amendment will still be in the U.S. Constitution, but for all practical purposes the rights that it is supposed to guarantee will be dead and gone.
H.R. 127 was submitted on January 4th, and if you have not read it yet you can find the full text right here.

The system will track the make, model, and serial number of all firearms, their owners, the dates they were acquired, and where they are being stored.
