By all means, try to repeal it. I am serious, this is a big step forward for the NY Times. They are proposing repealing the Second Amendment which IMPLIES by the process outlined in the Constitution. The problem is, of course, that 2/3 of the states will not ratify such an amendment and the NY Times proposed amendment of repeal of the Second Amendment will GO DOWN IN FLAMES.

What the NY Times really means is, “yo, some judge out there, just end this.”

That'll never work because the United States Constitution has very specific language on how to add Amendments--one that even Lefty judges won't touch.

To go down in flames, it would actually have to get off the ground. A full repeal would go nowhere in recordtime. Personally, I hope that the Democrat party runs on this issue. We haven’t ever seen a major U.S. political party commit mass political suicide.

I was under the impression that the original amendments in the bill of rights cannot be repealed.

The Tree of Liberty is need of watering.

The election of our President has made one thing tragically and painfully, true - too many Americans hate America.

I can't see any other way to solve this, we must slug it out. The attacks by leftists, physical and verbal, from all walks of life. The predation of citizens by thugs. The undermining of our way of life, our borders, our Rights, our Sovereignty.

Bring it.

I beg to differ. The ability of a Leftist to hold conflicting views on the same subject w/o mental strain is well known.

To presume they acknowledge the only lawful process to repeal any existing Amendment would ALSO presume they acknowledge the Right to begin. Which, in turn, states, in plain English, shall not be infringed.

Yet, they are one of the most vocal vs. 2nd. Course, those on the right couldn’t debate themselves out of a wet paper bag, and w/ ‘friends’ like the NRA, AGREEING with further infringements....
