The second amendment is a vestige of our barbaric past it is no more prideful a thing than slavery segregation or the confederacy jim crow, disenfranchisement of women, anti immigrant setiment, it is a value of an agressively paranoid racist society bent on conquest , and repression of oppressed races and genders 

It’s Time to Repeal—and Replace—the Second Amendment

The meaning of the amendment has been so badly mangled that our only choice is to start over with something that allows for real gun control.

The Second Amendment is why we can’t go to school, or work, or a house of worship, or a nightclub, or a movie theater, or a music festival, or pretty much any public gathering without fear of getting shot to death. The Second Amendment is why you can’t be immediately arrested for openly carrying around an assault rifle in a public place, and why you can’t be immediately arrested for smuggling a hand-cannon in your gym shorts. The Second Amendment is how law enforcement justifies the need for military-grade armaments—to match the “firepower” they meet in the streets. The Second Amendment is why we have a generation of young people that is scarred or missing from gun violence. And the Second Amendment is why I had to tell my 6-year-old last night to act like Scaredy Squirrel and “play dead” if an “active shooter” storms his classroom, thereby mangling the whole moral of the books.  The Second Amendment is why we can’t go to school, or work, or a house of worship, or a nightclub, or a movie theater, or a music festival, or pretty much any public gathering without fear of getting shot to death.

Wow.  What an astonishing load of garbage, written by a spineless coward with authoritarian fantasies.

 

That said, I have far more respect for someone trying to push gun control when they acknowledge the 2nd Amendment and advocate for its repeal than I have for those who push for gun control and claim it's "constitutional".

 

Of course, a Constitutional Amendment won't get anywhere, considering how many states believe in and support the right to bear arms.
