Retired Supreme Court Justice: Nation’s Youth Should Demand Repeal Of 2nd Amendment

Retired Supreme Court Justice: Nation’s Youth Should Demand Repeal Of 2nd Amendment

Young people should be demanding a repeal of the Second Amendment, a former U.S. Supreme Court Justice says.

“[T]he demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform,” John Paul Stevens wrote of large crowds of gun-control protestors in a Tuesday New York Times op-ed. “They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”

“… That simple but dramatic action would move Saturday’s marchers closer to their objective than any other possible reform,” Stevens wrote. “It would eliminate the only legal rule that protects sellers of firearms in the United States — unlike every other market in the world.

“It would make our schoolchildren safer than they have been since 2008 and honor the memories of the many, indeed far too many, victims of recent gun violence,” Stevens claimed.

Stevens believes repeal is the only way to overturn the Supreme Courts’ Heller Decision, which found the Second Amendment granted an individual right to bear arms. Stevens was among the four justices who dissented in the Heller case in 2008.

“Overturning that decision via a constitutional amendment to get rid of 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 wrote.

The history of interpretation of the Second Amendment, Stevens argued, does not support an individual right to own guns.

“For over 200 years after the adoption of the Second Amendment, it was uniformly understood as not placing any limit on either federal or state authority to enact gun-control legislation,” Stevens wrote. “In 1939 the Supreme Court unanimously held that Congress could prohibit the possession of a sawed-off shotgun because that weapon had no reasonable relation to the preservation or efficiency of a “well-regulated militia.’”

  1. Guns MADE this country FREE! Guns prevented Japan from invading us in WW2. WE were armed to the teeth(no easy conquest) and guns WILL KEEP US FREE!!! Guns do not kill people, people kill people!

  2. you are 100000000 percent right!!!

  3. Stevens is totally wrong on all counts regarding the 2nd Amendment. He is one of several judges who should never have reached being seated on the SCOTUS. Most decisions for decades now have been rendered by referring to case law decisions, many as flawed as those reached now, without deep research into the writings of the framers of the Constitution, they just take the basic wording of the Constitution and draw their own biased conclusions. Lawmakers, likewise treat the Constitution the same way, thus their excuse for the massive federal overreach which has made the Constitution, in their eyes, worthless.

  4. I believe after the coming hostilities are concluded, there will be tribunals for the politicians, judges, and civilians who have worked in the shadows to destroy our Constitution. If you are one of the aforementioned individuals, I hereby promise you will receive a good fair trial, followed by a long drop and a short rope.

  5. The people in Washington DC have ripped our rights up in order for them to control the people. They don’t give a damn about the rights of the people. They placed their had on the word of God and swore to up hold the Constitution and lied. Remember this. WE THE PEOPLE BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE. I live in Texas we have a saying come get some. We humble our self before the Lord and honor and up hold the Constitution of the United States. A lone wolf is easy prey a pack will stand together and defend our rights. Those who be leave will stand together and defend it.

  6. The 2nd amendment stays the right to gun ownership is what kept this country safe and protects the citizens

  7. The one good thing about Stevens coming out about this is the world knows what their ultimate goal is.
