  • The amendment does not apply to a modern state in the 21st century.

    Today, we do have an effective military and police power to protect our rights and enforce security measures. The only reason why someone could have a weapon is for hunting and sportsmanship. The idea that you own a weapon to protect yourself has opened the door to too many tragedies and the facts that USA is at the foreword of number of gun fatalities has to stop. Countries like Japan do have a very strict policy regarding guns ownership and gun violence is quasi inexistent. If people feel insecure it may be for other reasons that cannot be dispel by owning a gun, and these reasons, social, jobs, poverty... Need to be addressed first.

  • Ask the people

    There isn't really a referendum setup, but there should be a referendum on this. Ask the people what they think about it. As far as how people should vote, there are two options: either we hang on to the constitution for eternity - which obviously there is good reason for doing; or we can recognise that the destruction caused by guns is so great that it no longer should be considered a basic right.

  • The 2nd Amendment is obsolete.

    The NRA's consistent opposition to all reasonable gun control laws leaves the country with only one choice: the repeal of the 2nd amendment. No one with any knowledge of the founding fathers' intentions could argue in favor of this amendment or support the irresponsible actions of the NRA and their fear mongering.

  • Yes, it must go for a safer America

    The Second Amendment for too long has served as a strong base for the gun proliferation and easy gun access agenda of the gun profiteers camp led by the NRA traitorous leadership. They have flooded America with firearms and given gun access to nearly everyone, including dangerous people - hence the widespread bloodshed and frequent mass shootings that haunt America for so long. The American people should repeal it to defeat the power grip of the profiteering camp in Congress and impose sensible gun control laws to restore order and safety for America.

  • The personal gun is nolonger needed in a modern society

    The society will be much safer if all citizens give away their guns and rely on the law and the government for their protection. The only way to achieve a gun-free America is to repeal the outdated Second Amendment which gives gun access to the public - a very dangerous idea for a modern society, like the US, with millions of potentially dangerous people on the loose.

  • The Second Amendment is outdated and dangerous to America

    Through the extended individual right of bearing arms from The Second Amendment, bad people can have access to firearms and hence cause widespread bloodshed, horrible number of gun deaths and immense suffering for the American people. The ambiguous and obsolete Second Amendment should be repealed for a safer and more civilized America.

  • Public doesn't need guns

    We should invest all that savings into better communities, then there will be no need to protect oneself from thy neighbor. Plenty of countries do that, I see no reason why US is such a stick and wants to stand out. Leave the cowboy mentality in the 19th century, the new era is "smart" era not "I will shoot you" era :)

  • Fearing one neighbour

    Amend 2A and allow States to make their decision, including if they permit individuals to enter their state armed. You'll see changes for the good in the states that ban personal arms, and public opinion will evolve over time in the gun toting states. The argument about criminals is true for now, they will always find weapons but the policing of them will be much simpler if no one is permitted to have guns. Such a complex situation with gun manufacturers owning politicians and pollies pandering to right win nut jobs, but I see no way forward other than melting them down and banning future sales. The alternative is chaos and I wonder how many gun owners that are responsible, know what happens to their guns during the life of the guns, they are designed to kill and I don't understand how fearful you'd have to be to want to be a killer? I hope your family isn't impacted by this, I hope your child doesn't grow up to think owning a weapon is normal, guns are not a toy to be put in the hands of law abiding citizens. The US is now an outlier in the world, once considered civilized and is quickly becoming uncivilized.

  • The right to keep and bear arms is my right.

    The founding fathers in their infinite wisdom had the genius to endow the American people with the inalienable right to keep and bear arms. They meant arms in the contemporary sense. We must be able to fend off a tyrannical government. The US government defensa apparatus has weapons of awesome power. The American people must be able to keep and bear arms equivalent to those governmental arms.

  • It is all about power

    Repell the second ammendment and you will soon be facing unseen repression from government, in all its forms. I live in Europe and governments do whatever they want, they impose ridiculous restrictions to law abiding citizens for no other reason than controlling everything. Supposedly you can vote againts them (every four years), but they also control the media. Without individual rights, democracy is an empty word.

  • No, that's ridiculous.

    The second amendment gives one of the most fundamental human rights. The right to self-preservation to the best of your ability. What better right is there than the right to protect yourself? That's what the second amendment is for, the right to protect yourself, whether that be from criminals or from government tyranny. Repealing the second amendment would be possibly the most catastrophic thing the government could do.

  • The rest will fall.

    If we as a nation decide to repeal the 2ND Amendment, then the 1st Amendment falls, the 3rd Amendment falls, the 4th Amendment falls, the fifth Amendment falls and so on and so forth. The world's most notorious dictators throughout history have taken away guns from the citizens and then committed untold atrocities against the citizens, killing thousands upon millions of the citizens. Mao in China, Hitler in Germany, Stalin in Russia, and the list goes on.

  • This is frightening...

    If you understood the Bill of Rights, you would see that it doesnt actually ``create``anything,. The Bill of Rights merely acknowleges the right`s existance. Therefore, repealing the 2A changes absolutely nothing. If we repealed the 1A, would you still have freedom of speech? The answer is, yes. For one to believe that the government can repeal or change what people`s freedoms are, then one must also be of the assumption that the government created these rights. The Consitution is clear about these issues: Govenment did not conjure up these liberties and then, out of an act of pure kindness, decise to bless us with them. We were born with them. How can the goverment alter or delete a freedom that they themselves did not make? The answer is, they cant!

    To argue that because you dont ``need`` a gun therefore no one needs a gun is preposterous. That is just like saying that we should repeal the First Amendment because you have nothing to say. But you are right, there is no such thing as tyranny anymore in the contemporary United States. So the NSA spying, militarization of the police, detaining people indefinately without a lawyer or a court date, and all the other civil liberty violations must be a figment of my imagination.

  • Who would ever give up their ability to defend themselves?

    We live in a crazy world and I own a few guns for sport and self defense. I don't know any reason that I should be denied the right to protect myself. I know that there are enough guns in the world that you would never get them all so taking mine would put my family and myself in serious danger.

  • Guns don't kill people.

    The gun does not kill a human the man holding the gun does. But a gun isn't the only thing that can kill people. People are smart enough now to be able to build a bomb out of house hold items. Even if we do repeal the amendment people will still smuggle guns like they do with drugs. Guns also help protect people. If you have someone threatening to kill someone or even you. Someone with a gun could hurt or kill this person.
