Following the budget bill capitulation and Saturday’s media gun control love fest, President Donald Trump, as is his wont, took to Twitter again early this morning to let America’s gun owners know they have nothing to worry about. As time.com reports . . .
President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday that the Second Amendment “WILL NEVER BE REPEALED” and called on voters to elect more Republicans in this fall’s congressional elections because the GOP “must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court.”
Trump’s statements came a day after retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote in an essay in The New York Times that repealing the amendment would make it easier for Congress to enact gun control legislation.
Fortunately, no one really wants to repeal the Second Amendment. And as Time (somehow that’s still a thing) wants us to know . . .
There is no current, major push to repeal the Second Amendment. Any effort to do so would be unlikely to succeed in today’s divisive political climate. Under the most common way to amend the Constitution, the House and Senate would both need to approve the proposal by two-thirds majorities. It would then need to be ratified by three-fourths of the states.
Are you reassured?
