Repeal the 2nd Amendment

This treatment of the 2nd amendment as sacred is monumental bullshit.  It was established after a revolution against the British in a rural, wild society in an age of one-shot muskets.

There is no longer a need to permit citizens to bear arms.  Against whom or what?  Against our own government? And of course, we have the right to construct a nuclear weapon, no?  If we are truly at war to defend ourselves as a country, we bear arms.  We don’t need the second amendment.  The national guard as a well-regulated militia can bear arms.  There is a purpose.  Otherwise it’s time to repeal the 2nd amendment.  No one has the right to bear arms.  It should be licensed and limited to necessity.

How long should we be beholden to the NRA an Gun Lobby?
