Matt Barber: Jesus Was 'Advocating For The Second Amendment'

The Libertarian Repeal the Second Amendment

Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens is calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment to allow for significant gun control legislation.

"I as well as most of the people in this room support the Second Amendment and an individual's right to own a gun", Hastings said Wednesday at the announcement of a new gun control organization in Coral Springs.

Stevens says the decision in that case, District of Columbia v. Heller, "has provided the NRA with a propaganda weapon of enormous power".

"Think about that. There's Jesus advocating for the Second Amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, to defend your own house, to keep your possessions, not to mention your wife, your children, to keep them safe", Barber said.

In his essay, the former justice embraced legislation that would ban semiautomatic weapons, increase the minimum age for buying a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establish a "more comprehensive" background check system on all purchases of firearms. He served on the court from 1975 until his retirement in 2010.

James Orengo, who was among the lawyers representing Miguna. "We just need him to follow the process like everybody else". The lawyers were also kicked out of the airport as they tried to serve the Immigration Department with court orders.

"While motivated by a reasonable desire to reduce gun violence, Stevens's proposal to repeal the Second Amendment is a mistake", Adam Winkler, a constitutional law professor at UCLA and author, told Bloomberg Law.

But Stevens called on demonstrators to "seek more effective and more lasting reform".

How does Stevens view the amendments of the Constitution, and what leads to such a bold call from a leading legal mind?

Behind all of this is the Second Amendment. And both have "F" grades from the National Rifle Association. Any changes would then have to be ratified by three-quarters of the states.

When District of Columbia v. Heller asserted an individual's right to bear arms, Stevens said it "provided the NRA with a propaganda weapon of huge power".
