Clarifying amendments to the Constitutions are generally good ideas; the ERA and Dan Savage’s proposed privacy amendment are good examples of why. So I’m with Morbo in calling for the Second Amendment to be repealed. The amendment, correctly interpreted (i.e. not as an individual right, but as a basis for establishing state national guards) is no problem, but in its gun nut interpretation, as exemplified by the latest ridiculous ruling from the DC Circuit (which, I am not kidding, cites Dred Scott as precedent) is extremely dangerous and limits eminently reasonable gun regulations like handgun and assault rifle bans and mandatory gun registration. Just to eliminate even the possibility of this interpretation gaining favor, we should shelve the amendment and regulate guns like we would any other consumer product (though, to be fair, there are no other consumer products on the market that are anywhere near as dangerous).
