In Support of Former Supreme Court Justice Stevens
We haven't heard from Justice Stevens in a while. He retired after nearly 35 years on the Supreme Court in 2010 and is now days away from being 98 years old. He certainly has the years in to be very wise. And recently he put in his support for the Know-Nothing Children's Crusade Against Guns with this article* in the New York Times which says it's time to repeal the Second Amendment.
There's a lot of drivel in it but I applaud the stand he's taking. It supports the rule of law and the proper way to amend the Constitution (not by Justices finding new rights in the penumbras and emanations of the Constitution). And in short I say this:
Yes, gun haters, amend the Consitution to take away rights, no matter how unprecedented that is. Amend it to repeal the Second Amendment.
Do it right now.
What are you waiting for, ya' wussies?
Kids are being shot to death! Have you no heart?
* The article has photos of two firearms, a Brown Bess musket and an AR-15 (perhaps a Smith & Wesson M&P 15 but the pistol grip looks wrong). The NYT corrected its prior mis-identification of the musket (smooth bore, accurate to about 20 yards) as a Kentucky rifle (spiral grooved inside the barrel, accurate to about 200 yards). But they didn't correct the mis-identification of the AR-15 as an assault rifle. The AR-15 is not full auto (the back side of the selector switch is a tell); and you have to be capable of fully automatic fire, have a removable box magazines and use an intermediate round in order to be classified an assault rifle (think STG 44, AK 47, M 16/C 4). Double evidence of the pig ignorance about guns the editors at the NYT display.
