  •  Solution to the problem of gun control (0+ / 0-)

    What we need is an amendment to the Constitution. I propose the following:

    Section 1. A well regulated Militia no longer being necessary to the security of a free State, the second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.
    “Section 2. Congress and the states shall have power to regulate the ownership and use of Arms by appropriate legislation.

    There is precedent here. The 18th amendment, prohibition of alcohol for beverage purposes, was repealed by the 21st amendment.

    The text of the 2nd amendment includes a rationale:
    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed"
    With that rationale no longer valid, the 2nd amendment is obsolete, unnecessary and actually harmful to national security.
