Following the massacre in Las Vegas last week, a number of high-profile publications have published columns calling for the abolition of the Second Amendment, the most prominent being America’s so-called paper of record.
Another column referred to the Second Amendment as the “cancer in the constitution.”
Now, worry not, because the policy changes they’d like to see are next to impossible. Just think about what repealing the Second Amendment would entail, after all. First, you’d need at least 290 members of the House of Representatives and 67 Senators vote to propose a constitutional amendment repealing the Second.
Good luck with that.
As if a Congressional consensus wouldn’t be hard enough to garner, then the legislatures of at least 38 states would need to ratify the amendment. Can you picture the state legislature of middle America doing that? Never.
And just like that, the Second Amendment would be repealed.
And what would that change? Absolutely nothing. The Second Amendment would be repealed – but that doesn’t mean guns are now restricted in any additional ways than they were before.
So how would one then go about creating a gun free America, which a repeal of the Second Amendment would allow? Allow ReasonTV to (quite humorously) explain below:
