    would you vote to repeal the 2nd ammendment

    I've been engaging with a poster that believes the 2a should be repealed. So, what say you? Would you vote to repeal the 2nd amendment? yes or no

    Vote in what manner? When will the average citizen who is not an office holder vote on anything of such importance as changing the US Constitution?

    I don't understand the purpose of repealing it. The Supreme Court decides how to interpret the Constitution. If a poster believes that the Conservative court's interpretation was wrong they could hope for a Liberal court to take up the issue.

    The Second Amendment is poorly written. It's much too ambiguous - it needs to be written clearly so we don't need a Court to tell us what it means.

    Here's my proposed Amended amendment:

    The Right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. . . Ever. . . I'm totally serious. . . Any lawmaker who infringes on this Right shall be punished to the full extent of the Law.

    Voted no... but given where we are today against the intention of the 2nd Amendment way back then, it is well overdue for an update.

    No and I do not see that being put to a popular vote, but if it was I would suggest changing "shall not be infringed" to "shall not be abridged or denied".

    i'd probably support an update with about fifty fewer commas and maybe a specification that howitzers, bioweapons, and nuclear bombs aren't covered.

    Wishing it repealed is an acknowledgement that the 2A is an individual right. That "pesky Second Amendment", as one liberal legal scholar put it.

    That wasn't the question.

    The question didn't ask would someone, as an average citizen, vote. It was just simply, would "you" vote.
