Time to repeal 2nd Amendment

It is time to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the US Constitution. Really it is past time. The Constitution as originally written supported slavery. It no longer does. The Second Amendment in the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution because, in part, slave owners wanted and needed guns to protect their property interest in slaves and to control their slaves. The Second Amendment is obsolete and is no longer required as part of the Constitution.

In the future, guns should be regulated by statute laws written in Congress and the individual state legislatures. State laws should apply only in the states where enacted. Laws enacted by Congress should apply in all 50 states and US territories. The US is no longer an expanding nation where settlers require protection from hostile indigenous peoples. What we now require is protection from the outlaws among us and allowing the outlaws to acquire arsenals is not the way to do that.

Trump must go
