Today, former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens penned an op-ed for the New York Times saying the time has come to repeal the Second Amendment.
And I just want to thank him.
For years we have been saying the goal of the Left is to strip the American people of any protections of their unalienable right to self-defense.
And for years, the Left has responded with the typical “well-I-nevering” one comes to expect when you point out their actual objectives.
”This isn’t about banning guns or taking away your right to bear arms! This is about common sense legislation! And only a right-wing gun nut would think we want to repeal the Second Amendment! What’s wrong, snowflake? You sound paranoid! LOL!”
Narrator: It’s about repealing the Second Amendment.
And we have John Paul Stevens to thank for letting the cat out of the bag.
So thank you, John Paul Stevens!
Of course the Second Amendment doesn’t grant us the right to keep and bear arms. Instead, it is there as a safeguard against the Government attempting to deprive us of this unalienable right.
“The right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.”
But the Left wants our unalienable rights infringed. Not just the Second Amendment. They’re not too keen on the First Amendment either.
And that’s always been the case.
Like I’ve said countless times, the Left pushes too hard and too far.
They mistake media saturation for “momentum.”
And because they believe they have “momentum,” they just keep pushing.
In the end, they push too hard and too far and it blows up in their faces like a trick cigar.
Trust me, seven months from the Midterms, this kind of rhetoric is not welcome news for the Democrats in Congress.
Do you think the Democrats want to run on a platform of repealing the Second Amendment?
Short answer: No.
Oh, to be a fly on the wall in Claire McCaskill’s office today as she reads this op-ed – the ink from the paper rubbing off on her fingers as she clutches it tightly in rage.
But not just her. I’m guessing Senators Manchin, Baldwin, Heitkamp, Tester, and Nelson are probably experiencing the same sputtering anger.
You don’t think these know-nothing teens who are the current face of the anti-gun movement won’t glom on to this far-fetched proposal to repeal the Second Amendment?
Of course they will. After all, it isn’t as if their emotional responses are tempered by age, experience, history, civics or a working understanding of modern politics.
Even before John Paul Stevens let the cat out of the bag, one of these Parkland teens proudly declared that if we give them an inch, they’ll take a mile.
And what better mile than repealing the Second Amendment?
And thanks to the cheerleaders in the media and their fellow ignoramuses on social media, everything these children say gets amplified a hundred-fold.
Right about now, I’m guessing it’s dawning on those vulnerable Democrats in Congress that they created a monster that is now poised to devour them.
So thank you, John Paul Stevens!
Already, #RepealTheSecondAmendment is trending on Twitter. And loudmouth cranks with the brain wattage of a keychain flashlight are going all-in for it.
You thought gun sales and NRA memberships were off the charts before?

Except for the small contingent of über-Leftists in Congress, I’m guessing most Democrats in DC are spitting nails right about now. All thanks to John Paul Stevens.
Is John Paul Stevens on the GOP payroll? Or is he being paid by Putin to boost Republican turnout? https://t.co/38XsZLEiae

The problem with the Left is they never know when to stop pushing. Once they get going, all bets are off.
And that’s especially true with this latest anti-gun push.
The news media’s exploitation of these children — coupled with the anti-gun activist groups propping them up – has created a false sense of overwhelming support and momentum for their cause that simply isn’t there.
And now that the cat is out of the bag, the reality of just how repugnant an idea repealing the Second Amendment is will be exposed.
Anybody with half a brain could have seen this coming.
It’s what I refer to as Operation Backfire.
They always push too far.
If I had to guess, I’d say there were a lot of people who fell for the lie that the Left doesn’t want to take away the Second Amendment. And I’d venture that even those people aren’t on board with what John Paul Stevens is advocating.
So thanks, John Paul Stevens. Thank you for pulling back the curtain and exposing the Left’s true goal.
