I don't care that the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution is argued by many that it gives them the right to bear arms. I care that the 2nd Amendment exists and is poorly worded enough, unclear enough, that it can be argued that way and get a hearing by enough people that guns are difficult to keep out of the hands of people who turn them on innocent others or even on criminals for that matter.
I don't care, for the sake of this argument, that people can do gigantic violence via knives and other non-gun weapons.
I don't care that people claim that the only thing standing between tyranny and freedom are the guns in the private possession of so-called freedom fighters/protectors.
I been calling for decades for guns to be banned. We live under a secular law subject to the 2nd Amendment that's used to allow guns.
I started calling for the 2nd Amendment to be repealed. Many have joined the chorus, even a former US Supreme Court justice who has applied the exact logic I had been, and still am, applying.
If everyone had the spirit of the whole law written on his or her heart, we wouldn't be facing this problem, as we wouldn't want guns to shoot others in the first place. They don't have that law where it should be. We can call for them to, and should, but while there's this secular law called the 2nd Amendment, were only allowing things to be more difficult. Totally innocent people are being mowed down every year, and it's only getting worse.
We've had horrendously bad periods in our history where violence reigned, but that doesn't excuse our current situation.
Repeal the 2nd!
