Courtesy of Instapundit, I just copied the first paragraph.

www.salon.com/opinion/feature/2007/04/18/second_amendment/

Fifteen unambiguous words are all that would be required to quell the American-as-apple-pie cycle of gun violence that has now tearfully enshrined Virginia Tech in the record book of mass murder. Here are the 15 words that would deliver a mortal wound to our bang-bang culture of death: "The second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed."

Suuuuure. That'd make all those evil guns vanish without a trace.

Forget Al Queda, the Taliban, Iran, North Korea, the idiots in this country will bring us down.

spoken words or letters on paper do not make it so

So deep, so witty, so insightful -"bang-bang culture."

Repeal the 2nd?

Welcome, Civil War Part II.

Good luck with that.

you don't have to go to articles on other web sites to find this attitude.


There are multiple posters right now on this board advocating re-writing parts of the Constitution.

This is exactly what we need to push for. A belief that the 2nd Amendment needs to be repealed is a belief that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right. (Which it is.)

To do this, you would have to have two thirds of both the House and Senate vote for the Amendment… Then three fourths of the state legislatures would have to do the same. It’s simply ain’t going to happen.

If we move the gun control debate to this issue, we win.

I have been hoping for years that the gun control debate would take this turn. Instead of dishonestly claiming that the 2nd doesn't really mean what it says, antis are being forced to reveal to the American public that achieving their aims is going to take the actual destruction of the friggin' BILL of RIGHTS!

Trust me, we will not lose that debate. Even sheeple won't follow that sheperd.
