Hillary Supporter Calls For 2A Repeal

posted on June 20, 2016

Sometimes it’s easy to tell what a candidate really believes by listening to the people who support that candidate.

A good example is law professor David S. Cohen—a Hillary Clinton supporter—who, in a Rolling Stone rant last week, called for complete repeal of the Second Amendment. 

Cohen wrote, “Sometimes we just have to acknowledge that the Founders and the Constitution are wrong. … The Second Amendment needs to be repealed because it is outdated, a threat to liberty and a suicide pact.”

But as the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in the Heller decision, “Just as the First Amendment protects modern forms of communications and the Fourth Amendment applies to modern forms of search, the Second Amendment extends, prima facie, to all instruments that constitute bearable arms, even those that were not in existence at the time of the founding.”
