“Should we amend the Second Amendment?” Paul M. Barrett of Bloomberg Businessweek asks in a Thursday hit piece designed to legitimize an edit proposed by retired “hero of the political left” Justice John Paul Stevens.
Check it out:
Stevens, who was a voice of dissent in both the Heller and McDonald cases, meaning he does not think Americans should have a right to keep and bear arms, wants to add a restrictive qualifier.
“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms — when serving in the militia — shall not be infringed,” is the way he thinks it ought to read, and Bloomberg’s employee is right there with him.
“For a couple of centuries, you might be surprised to learn, the Supreme Court didn’t say exactly what the Second Amendment means,” Barrett assures his readers.
