“The Second Amendment must go” Liberal media openly calls for mass gun confiscation in America

Eventually Illing gets to the point of the matter which in a nutshell is a rehash of the same talking points used by gun control zealots in the past. The Constitution is old, it’s not really that important, and it can be changed whenever the majority decides.

The Second Amendment fanatics will surely remind us that guns are quintessentially American. That’s true, of course: the Second Amendment exists. But that’s not the end of the conversation. That something is written in the constitution doesn’t mean it’s sacrosanct.

The document, after all, enshrined slavery and denied full personhood to black people. At any rate, contrary to the disastrous Supreme Court ruling in 2008, the Second Amendment protects militias, not the individual’s right to carry a pistol in a supermarket or a theatre. It wasn’t until the NRA bought the Republican Party (Jindal included) and began pushing for a reinterpretation of the amendment that it came to mean something other than it does.

In that one paragraph Illing apparently decided it was time to rewrite history as well as directly lie to the reader with the ludicrous claim that the 2nd Amendment only became about private gun ownership after the NRA “bought” the Republican Party when in reality the right to bear arms by everyday citizens has been a fundamental right since the founding of the country. Illing also laughably argues that a major Supreme Court ruling that affirmed the exact opposite of what he is claiming means absolutely nothing because he and his allies said so!
