Time to Take the 2nd Amendment Out of the Constitution Says Constitutional Law Profes


http://www.independentsentinel.com/t...law-professor/

Quote:
Victor Blackwell interviewed this professor.

BLACKWELL: “Why do you go to the repeal of the second amendment?”

COHEN: “When something is written into the Constitution as a right, we elevate it in our society as something beyond the democratic process. If we talk about it as a constitutional right, it’s better than everything else. And I think it should be taken out of the constitution and made just like every other consumer good. That doesn’t mean I think they should be banned everywhere. It just should be subject to votes. And democracy. And when we have a constitutional right, that takes it off the table.”

When one has to point out "I can hardly believe..." then that is often an indication of stinky bait, well past it' "Use Before" date.

Maybe that should tell you something about your warped view of "the lefties".

I'm hoping they see the negative connotations of doing something like this. Removing an enumerated right in the BOR is a big deal. What's to stop whoever from doing it with the rest of the amendments when they feel they no longer serve them?

Amendments may be proposed either by the Congress with a two-thirds vote in both the House of Representatives and the Senate or by a convention of states called for by two-thirds of the state legislatures. To become part of the Constitution, an amendment must be ratified by either—as determined by Congress—the legislatures of three-fourths of the states or State ratifying conventions in three-fourths of the states. The vote of each state (to either ratify or reject a proposed amendment) carries equal weight, regardless of a state’s population or length of time in the Union.
