That is exactly what retired Supreme Court Justice Stevens proposes.
Notwithstanding that there is zero chance an amendment to kill American gun rights would pass, lunatic proposals such as the current one by Stevens, are the province of the Marxist/Progressive/left movement .
Here is the elephant in the room for America’s gun owners. I am referring to the Supreme Court. The court today is most likely one misplaced vote away from endangering the Second Amendment.
In support of the Second Amendment, former CIA chief of the bin Laden unit Michael Scheuer (Marching Toward Hell), writes, “ The 2nd Amendment is an offshoot of the English Bill of Rights (1689).”
In the 2nd Amendment, the Founders clearly recognized that citizens needed weapons for the defense of persons and homes
If a tyranny emerged, the Founders knew that Americans would have at hand two tools for use in righting the situation. One was the motivation Americans would have to rebel against tyranny because of the absolute right to self-defense that is found in Natural Law. The other was the arms-to-kill-tyrants they would always possess because of the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment.
Armed rebellion to confront and destroy tyranny, then, is a legitimate option if a people perceives that their political leaders intend to establish tyrannical rule.
It is for this reason that the Founders left all Americans an inheritance as precious as the 2nd Amendment.
