A Math Lesson


This was written by Scot Hacker after the mass shooting in Orlando, 2016 where 49 were killed. What has happen since - NOTHING!  

Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment

One of the reasons we end up focusing so hard on guns is that it’s something concrete we can address with the force of law. We can’t “fix” mental health by throwing money at it. We can’t “fix” religious extremism by closing our borders, because it grows in our own soil and is fed by the internet. But we can, at least potentially, “fix” the gun situation by recognizing that the Constitution is a fluid document that was designed to adapt to the times. We can stop thinking of gun ownership as an “inalienable” right and treat it as a privilege instead – one that has to be earned or bestowed (to hunters and law enforcement), not one granted willy nilly to every bozo who wants a human-killing machine for “reasons.”

See the Rolling Stone article by Constitutional Scholar David S. Cohen, Why It’s Time to Repeal the Second Amendment; again, June 2016.

  1. Brilliant! I was wondering what America should do about mass shooting. Now I got a clear view concerning the second amendment. Thanks a lot.
