Too many die by gunfire – It is time to repeal the 2nd Amendment

To the Daily Sun,

I would hope most of us agree that too many people in this country die by gunfire. Because there are so many guns out there, and because the culture and history of individual gun ownership is so strong, it will take a lot of thoughtful conversation to deal with this issue intelligently.

In my opinion, one of the biggest barriers to this conversation is the Second Amendment to the Constitution. Frankly, the opinions of the founding fathers about their smoothbore muskets and local militias have absolutely no relevance to America in the 21st century, and the time we spend trying to parse them is time totally wasted.

I would humbly suggest it is time to repeal the Second Amendment. I know full well that this suggestion won't get very far very soon, but it is an idea that deserves to be considered. Then we can start to deal realistically with the situation we are faced with.
