Bradford T. Conway wrote a letter to the New York Times yesterday in which he confronts the key issue.
... It’s well past time to start a conversation regarding the repeal of the Second Amendment.We might also want to teach the meaning of the word "freedom."
The Second Amendment has become a dangerous anachronism, drafted in the 18th century for a sparsely populated frontier nation that had no police force to speak of and where flintlock muzzleloaders were state-of-art weapons. Ours is not that world.
I am not calling for the outright ban and confiscation of firearms (though I’d like to); I am suggesting that repeal of the Second Amendment would remove any constitutional impediment to regulating firearms as we do automobiles....NYT
