NY Times Op-Ed: “Repeal the Second Amendment” to “Make Schoolchildren Safer”

This article comes from InfoWars.com.

by Paul Joseph Watson

A New York Times op-ed published this morning calls for repealing the Second Amendment in its entirety in order to “make our schoolchildren safer”.

Written by John Paul Stevens, a retired associate justice of the United States Supreme Court, the article claims that merely calling for age limits on purchasing firearms to be raised is not enough and that gun control activists should “demand a repeal of the Second Amendment.”

Asserting that the right to bear arms is a “relic of the 18th century,” Stevens decries the 2008 Columbia v. Heller Supreme Court ruling, on which he was one of the dissenters, which found that there was an individual right to bear arms.

“Overturning that decision via a constitutional amendment to get rid of the Second Amendment would be simple and would do more to weaken the N.R.A.’s ability to stymie legislative debate and block constructive gun control legislation than any other available option,” writes Stevens.

  1. When I hear people saying the second amendment is a relic, I want to ask, is the idea of defending and preserving your freedoms a relic? If the answer is yes, then I command you to bend over and kiss my ass, NOW! You do not have the freedom to refuse. The ass kissing is much preferable than your punishment for non-compliance. Your punishment will be swift and harsh. Pucker up!

  2. As a born and raised red blooded American, i can’t help but wonder how much more of this crap we are going to take before we start pushing back. Anybody with a pea size brain can see America is already in the midst of a Civil War.

    1. that’s just it Johnnyreb, how much are we going to take? “Pushback” gets closer everyday. I dread this summer. I think there is going to be a “special council” to address the gun issue and then a call nationwide to congress to convene and debate the 2nd amendment and cast votes. I HOPE I AM SO WRONG ON THIS !

  3. It is shocking and sad but telling that an old, experienced supreme court justice could get it so wrong on something he should be an expert on. Likewise that he should be buying into the political vilification of the NRA. Since when is ‘dramatic’ good reasoning to be embraced? Besides, ‘simply and dramatically’ repealing the second amendment does not prohibit guns. You would need to pass a gun prohibition amendment also – as set by the precedent of the alcohol prohibition 18th amendment.

    Justice Stevens dishonestly writes about making our school children safer when our schools which shuttle our 50 million children twice a day, are by far and away still the safest place for our children, surrounded as they are by professionally trained teachers, police officers, paramedics and firefighters. To those gun prohibitionists who say this is not enough safety or security, I say then support our second amendment, not destroy it.

  4. This response is focusing more on curriculum……
    It’s easy to make children safer in school via abolishing the Department of Education, and the complete evisceration of Common Core.
    Indoctrination begins in school, continues at University, and all along the way thrown out via TV, internet, etc….
    Food for thought for the future…………

  5. I just read the rebuttal to this from the Federalist. Outstanding,articulate yet simple to read and comprehend.Outstanding Job if you can get a chance to read it.
