Regulation seems reasonable, but it can’t fight against the gun-lobby tide and win. We need to address gun violence at the root by taking away the appearance of mythic sanction the Second Amendment gives.
The founders struggled to get things right, but they knew what we’ve forgotten, that perfection wasn’t possible. They ditched our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation and started over, then they ensured that the new document would be open to change in the form of amendments.
We ought to respect and honor the document, but realize it is not the last word, that democracy is a living, growing thing that the living must tend. And we must be on guard against people who abuse our reverence for the Constitution for their own political reasons.
We should repeal the Second Amendment.
Yeah, we wouldn’t want those uppity slaves to have guns. Which was the impetus behind almost all the early attempts to infringe on, or nullify, the Second Amendment…as far as black people were concerned.
You sniveling, gullible, ignorant tool.
