"Peter" has some thoughts on the Second Amendment.
Retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens apparently stepped down from the Bench due to the onset of cognitive dissonance, or perhaps even Dementia. Calling for the repeal of any part of the Bill of Rights is evidence of either, or both.
The purpose of the 2nd Amendment is to afford the citizenry protection should the government become tyrannical or dictatorial in governing.
Our worst enemy isn’t the petty criminals in our neighborhoods, it is the overbearing and dictatorial activist justices who want to use legal rulings to achieve social and political engineering to their satisfaction – up to and including throwing out long held constitutional protections to further their own personal agenda of liberalism/socialism.
Liberal politicians fight to stack the courts with such activist judges and justices in order to create strategies for accomplishing their goals using combinations of legislation and legal rulings to force their agenda on the rest of us.
John Paul Stevens could learn a lesson in leadership, duty and integrity from his namesake, John Paul Jones.
