- A call from a retired U.S. Supreme Court justice to repeal the Second Amendment has President Donald Trump saying "no way" as he hopes to make a solidly conservative court the lasting legacy of his time in office. "We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!"
He also embraced legislation that would ban semiautomatic weapons, increase the minimum age for buying a gun from 18 to 21 years old, and establish a "more comprehensive" background check system on all purchases of firearms.
"I'm not sure that Justice Stevens realizes that any campaign to repeal the Second Amendment will only strengthen the Republican Party and President Trump", he said.
Stevens' call for repeal of the Second Amendment will do littlemore than further polarize the pro-gun and anti-gun factions with no real promise of opening the door to meaningful firearms legislation.
Mr. Stevens filled his dissenting opinion with a strained reading of the text and history of the Second Amendment to assert that its sole objective was the preservation of state militias to protect against the excesses of a standing army or a foreign invasion. But national conversations on gun rights since then have probably shrunk that number, and the Economist/YouGov poll discusses the Second Amendment in the context of guns. "The NRA is.

Lewis Mizen, one of the Parkland teens who has made efforts to hear arguments from the other side of the aisle, said in an interview with Mic that he "completely disagrees" with the idea of repealing the Second Amendment.
"We think that the focus has to remain on removing weapons from unsafe individuals, not on blocking all Americans from their constitutional rights", she said.
"They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment", he wrote, arguing that the amendment was created to counter the threat a national standing army was once thought to pose to free states - a concern he said no longer applies.
Thousands of activists held marches over the weekend to call for stricter gun controls in the wake of the Valentine's Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that killed 17 students and faculty.
