    •  Uh (10+ / 0-)

      repealing the second amendment does not mean taking away every gun.  This isn't complicated...no constitutional amendment guarantees people the right to own cars or buy Peeps...yet we can do both of those things.

      So, those who want to repeal the 2nd amendment may, or may not, want to wholly ban guns.  They may simply want to make it easier to ban some guns, institute mandatory background checks, etc.

      To be clear, I don't think we need to repeal the 2nd amendment to do any of the things above.  That is, no amendment is beyond reasonable restrictions.  But that's a whole 'nother thang.  I have no problem with hunting rifles and shotguns.

      But back to your comment, opposing the second amendment does not mean "eliminating all guns."

      •  Do you deny (0+ / 0-)

        that there are people here who would like to do just that? I've read comments stating that in no uncertain terms, and so have you.
