Repeal the Second Amendment Now

Repeal the Second Amendment Now. This anachronistic, poorly worded amendment prevents us from passing real gun control measures that will be effective in stopping the ongoing gun slaughter. It should be no more a constitutional right to own a gun than to own a car.

Why is this important?

Enough is enough. Americans shouldn't have to be worried that an irresponsible gun-owning parent's recklessness will result in the slaughter of their young children at school. We need REAL gun control. Stringent rules such as those in Australia or the UK. Dramatic reductions in the numbers of guns in American homes. In order to do that, we must first repeal the 2nd Amendment, to remove the deadly constitutional right of all Americans to own as many lethal weapons as they desire. Repealing the 2nd amendment won't automatically make all gun ownership illegal, but it will allow us to move forward and create the rational rules we need for the 21st century.

Reasons for signing

  • Repealing the 2nd amendment does not mean stripping away sportsmen"s right to go out and shoot innocent deer. The states would still have the ability to allow guns, but reasonable states who do care about innocent life would be able to ban guns. Gun rights activists have had over 200 years to get control of their hobby and stop the needless slaughter of innocent lives, so it is time to take action.
  • Keep the 2nd amendment. In fact, make gun ownership more accessable.
  • Stop the madness. We do not need an armed population nor a huge military.
