This is a refreshing idea, honestly.
Instead of duct-taping something that is inherently broken, throw it out and replace it.
Like Prohibition. (The 18th Amendment)
The 2nd Amendment is wrong, in that it is unclear. Wheedling details about interpretation and whether you are an Originalist or whatever, is stupid. Just throw the fucker out and replace it with something better written.
Which will require debate. And discussion. And evidence.
Which will eliminate the NRA's pet legislation that prevents any study of guns, in any way, shape, or form.
It'll also break the moronic belief that the Constitution is some immutable document.
This could be the most important result of repealing the 2nd Amendment: Make people remember that the Constitution has ALWAYS been mutable. It has ALWAYS changed, according to societal needs.
We seem to be locked into an illogical, non-historically accurate, belief that the Constitution is perfect, as is. It never was. And, more importantly, it was never intended to be! It was supposed to change with the times.
The founders knew that, and built the capacity for Amendments.
So let's stop arguing a poorly-worded phrase. Throw it out, and start over, creating something that actually reflects society's beliefs today, and is worded unambiguously.
Good on ya, Stevens. Way to continue being thoughtful and for meaningfully participating in this conversation.
