'The Second Amendment will never be repealed'

  • Retired Supreme Court Justice Stevens says Second Amendment should be repealed

Trump's statement also came in the wake of the national "March For Our Lives" student-led demonstration calling for more gun control in the United States, as well as a trending hashtag on Twitter yesterday that said "Repeal the Second Amendment".

That is exactly why Trump tweeted, "We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!"

In this March 22, 2018, photo, President Donald Trump speaks in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House in Washington. One former Republican Supreme Court Justice argues the amendment is nothing more than a relic and has no place in our modern society.

Never mind that leading Democrats aren't talking right now about repealing the Second Amendment. "It is not simply protect the Second Amendment or your guns get taken away", Schumer said. The last amendment was approved in 1992 - two centuries after it was first proposed. Stinchfield said. "I have long said the ultimate goal of the left is the complete repeal of the 2nd Amendment". A debate on school safety and guns with teenagers on CNN's "New Day" turned heavily on race and did not specifically mention the Second Amendment, but Jacob Scott, a 17-year-old from Florida, warned about gun control efforts as "gun grabbing". Article V of the Constitution requires that two thirds of both houses (that is, the Senate and the House of Representatives), or two thirds of the states (34 of the 50, now), must call for any changes to the Constitution.

Speaking on the MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour, he said the amendment on "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" was the subject of "one of the greatest pieces of fraud - I repeat the word "fraud" - on the American public by special-interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetime".

The statement says they also expressed satisfaction with the apparent easing of tensions over North Korea's weapons program. Trump said they would meet in the "not too distant future" to discuss limiting a growing arms race, Ukraine and Syria.

The retired justice is somewhat of an expert on the second amendment, having considered its proper scope in the 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller.

"It protects the preexisting right to use guns by members of a militia", Stevens said at the time.

The op-ed elicited support from gun activists and liberals across the country, including outspoken San Antonia Spurs basketball coach Gregg Popovich.

While numerous students and activists have cast the Second Amendment as outdated, there have been no major organized efforts to repeal the amendment - which in itself would present a massive undertaking.
