When did the Second Amendment become a license allowing grenade launchers and other military people-killers in the home?

King attacked the 2nd Amendment in an interview with TMZ following former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Steven's call for student protesters to demand the same.

The former justice argued that repealing the Second Amendment would "weaken the N.R.A.'s ability to stymie legislative debate and block constructive gun control legislation than any other available option".

"That decision - which I remain convinced was wrong and certainly was debatable - has provided the (National Rifle Association) with a propaganda weapon of vast power", wrote Stevens, who served from 1975 until he retired in 2010.

I have said for years; everybody can have a musket.

Sessions spurns GOP request for second special counsel
While we continue to believe the appointment of a second Special Counsel is necessary, this is a step in the right direction. Those Republican calls for another special counsel have come from several powerful members of Congress, including Sens.

In Steven's op-ed, the retired justice said lawmakers should enact "legislation prohibiting civilian ownership of semiautomatic weapons", increase the minimum age to buy a gun from "18 to 21 years old" and establish more "comprehensive background checks on all purchasers of firearms", in addition to encouraging gun control activists to push for the "repeal of the Second Amendment". And in needing a human face at which to shout, those wanting to rid the country of guns blame the National Rifle Association for the crimes committed with their use.

Repealing the amendment would be extremely hard.

How does Stevens view the amendments of the Constitution, and what leads to such a bold call from a leading legal mind? "Emboldened by the mainstream media, the gun-control lobby is no longer distancing themselves from the radical idea of repealing the Second Amendment and banning all firearms".

"We think that the focus has to remain on removing weapons from unsafe individuals, not on blocking all Americans from their constitutional rights", she said. If we don't vote out NRA-funded politicians standing in the way of common-sense gun safety legislation, the Second Amendment may be in danger.
