Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Friday that its time to discuss what the Second Amendment means in the modern world in light of last weeks mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Ms. Rice, who served under President George W. Bush, said that while the Second Amendment remains indivisible, she doesnt think civilians should have access to guns like the AR-15, which was used by 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz to fatally shoot 17 students and teachers on Valentines Day.
I think it is time to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world, she told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt. I dont understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons. We wouldnt say you can go out and buy a tank.

I’m not interested in discussing anything with you, Condi.
You mean nothing to me. Your opinions about my rights are not relevant.
Go talk to yourself about your rights, and leave me alone.
A Bushie rears its ugly head.
Shut up and go back to your wife, Condi.
The modern world? That being the world that in the last century saw governments slaughter more of their own citizens than in any other century in recorded history? That modern world?
No. We need the 2nd Amendment more than ever to protect us from tyrannical governments.
It means what it meant when it was enacted. There is an individual right to bear arms. It shall not be infringed. The militia was all free men and they were to be and were armed.
Condi is a NeoCon and NeoCons do not like the US Constitution.
Oh and BTW, Condi. It’s time to discuss “what it means in the Modern World” for Deep State drones like yourself to spread fake news in order to start wars fought by the very people you would disarm and whom you don’t give a flying **** about. *itch.
Condi is way overrated in intelligence. The Second Amendment wasn’t written to protect hunting and sports, or even personal defense. The second amendment was justified completely as protection from tyranny by government.
Well, we already know what the 10th Amendment mean post-FDR ... absolutely nothing ... so the only people who should be surprised that rolling back the 2nd has always been a goal of the uniparty (and not just the Left) probably also believed assertions that civil rights status for homosexual acts wouldn’t result in same sex marriages.
Modern, like Venezuela.
Condi is a NeverTrumper. I admired her once.
She is dead to me now.
Don’t understand the need? It’s just in case we may need to have you fleeing for your life out the back door of the Capitol building as we come pouring in the front one day. Thats why Condi.
I think it is time to have a conversation about what the right to bear arms means in the modern world,... .................... Key words, “the right to”....... Why is that so tough to understand? “The right to speak” your mind has been changed to PC in the modern world. For 200+ plus years the longest government existing suddenly has to be fixed? It worked well for 200+ years, LETS FIX IT. Today they are calling for a boycott of the NRA, its like they caused the deaths of all those children. Auto rentals and banks are falling in step with the protestors. Well, I have a feeling the NRA is going to double (maybe more) their membership.
“I dont understand why civilians need to have access to military weapons.”>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Civilians do not have access to military weapons.
Condi will never run for office. If she does , she will have no hope of election as a Republican.
Maybe Condi will join the Oprah crowd?
She can't be that uninformed about the reasons the Founders added the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution.
It means what it’s always meant.
The same thing it did 200 years ago. Same as the first and third through 10th. We may be rapidly falling into a civil war.
