Justice John Paul Stevens: Time to Repeal the 2nd Amendment  

5
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for the repeal of the Second Amendment in a New York Times op-ed published Tuesday. Stevens, who served on the Supreme Court from 1975 to 2010, called the Second Amendment “a relic of the 18th century” that saw a lifting in its previously limited reach in 2008’s District of Columbia v. Heller decision.
He said that case’s ruling “provided the [National Rifle Association] with a propaganda weapon of immense power,” and that overturning the Second Amendment “would be simple and would do more to weaken the NRA’s ability to stymie legislative debate and block constructive gun-control legislation than any other available option.”
Stevens, now 97, also called for the March for Our Lives leaders to demand the amendment’s repeal, and claimed it “would move Saturday’s marchers closer to their objective than any other possible reform.” In an 2014 op-ed in The Washington Post, Stevens called for the courts to clarify the Second Amendment’s right to bear arms existed “in the Militia.” Read more at the New York Times

  1. So they want to confiscate weapons from good people and leave it in the hands of the FBI, the Deep State and other terrorists.

    Let’s not be fooled. What the FBI and Deep State really want, is an unarmed society who cannot defend themselves giving the Deep State all the power to completely take over the US.

  2. When your hands are too shaky to shoot, cringe. Slap away, the 2nd Amendment is instituted. This is the relic of the week and I do not mean his age.

    Funny. The world Hashem owns is fun. Everything is said.

    Vote happy.

  3. “THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED,” said President Trump America’s Greatest President Ever today.
    “As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY. We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!”
