CNN Publishes Piece Explicitly Calling for Repeal of the 2nd Amendment

The following article, CNN Publishes Piece Explicitly Calling for Repeal of the 2nd Amendment, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Those who find opportunity in tragedy must do so with an enormous amount of tact and nuance, lest they wish to be forever labeled exploitationists and charlatans.

Yes, there are opportunities being discussed today regarding changes to the way that guns are purchased in the United States, in the wake of an undeniable tragedy in Uvalde, Texas.  And yes, there are options being discussed on both sides of the aisle.

But there is also a great deal of opportunistic drivel exploding forth in regard to the matter, including an op-ed published by CNN that is literally calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment.

Longtime liberal radio host Bill Press wrote an op-ed Thursday calling for the Second Amendment to be outright repealed.

“The only effective way to deal with the Second Amendment is to repeal it — and then replace it with something that makes sense in a civilized society,” Press wrote for CNN in an article titled “There’s no way to fix the Second Amendment. Let’s just get rid of it.”

“I’m hardly the first person to say that the Second Amendment has been a disaster for this country. In fact, two Supreme Court justices — justices appointed by Republican presidents — have said as much,” he added.

Press cited former Chief Justice Warren Burger, who in 1991 told PBS that “If I were writing the Bill of Rights now, there wouldn’t be any such thing as the Second Amendment.”

Burger, who also presided over Roe v. Wade, is quoted as calling the Second Amendment “one of the greatest pieces of fraud” in American history.

Press reiterated the claim and expounded on it. He wrote, “Indeed, you only have to read the Second Amendment to see what a fraud it’s become.”

He claimed that “there’s no way you can logically leap” from the text of the Second Amendment “to the unfettered right of any citizen to buy as many guns — and any kind of gun — that they want, without the government being able to do anything about it.”

The piece would go on to suggest, despite centuries of vigorous adjudication, that the Second Amendment doesn’t guarantee individual gun ownership at all.

“When the resolution of enslaving America was formed in Great Britain, the British Parliament was advised … to disarm the people; that it was the best and most effectual way to enslave them; but that they should not do it openly, but weaken them, and let them sink gradually, by totally disusing and neglecting the militia.” – George Mason at Virginia’s Ratifying Convention, 1788 (3 Elliot, Debates at 380)
