The Second Amendment is meaningless in today’s world. “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.” Are we going to arm everyone: theater ushers, kindergarten teachers, priests and ministers?

The Second Amendment is a ludicrous loophole, kept alive by people whose interests don’t include the safety of anyone. Let’s repeal the Second Amendment!
