“It’s been a while since I broke down a dumb, anti-gun editorial right? Well hell, let’s do just that right now.

Tom H. Hastings, in a recent column on the, called for a repeal of the “stupid Second Amendment”.

Here’s a sample:

What country fetishizes, lionizes, valorizes, idolizes, and sacralizes guns as much as does our United States? OK, possibly Mozambique — the only country with an AK47 on its flag, but really, it’s long past time to end this obsessive “My Precious” attachment of Americans to instruments of death.

This morning of Dec. 25, 2014, of the nine top stories from US Reuters, six were about shootings — four new ones and two about the national movement against shootings of citizens by police. This pandemic of sick violence, punctuated by mass killings of children, has gone on far, far too long. It is long past time to repeal the stupid Second Amendment.

Sounds like Tom’s issue is with media coverage. So here is Tom’s solution:

Repeal the Stupid Second Amendment. Surround it, grab it, bring it in the back room, pull down the shades, and end it. OK, petition for it, get it on the ballot, and get it done by enough of the US populace, by enough people in enough states, to get it consigned to the dustbin of history.

Well, good luck with that Tom. That only takes getting about 75% of the country (including Congress and state legislatures) to agree on repealing an amendment to the Bill of Rights. Once again, good luck sir.

Here is Hastings bio from the Portland State University website:

He is a nonviolent peace, justice and environmental activist, a Plowshares nonviolent veteran of three prisons and has done nonviolence trainings for more than 30 years across the US. He is a past chair and current board member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association, and on the Board of Directors of the Oregon Peace Institute. He is on the Governing Council of the International Peace Research Association and on the Board of Directors of the International Peace Research Association Foundation. He is on the Academic Advisory Council of the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict. He lives in the Portland Catholic Worker community Whitefeather House, and hikes and bikes for fun (transportain and he owns no automobile).”

      There’s a whole lot of ’em,and they never,ever stop trying to create their warped utopia,in which they are never a part of the citizenry-no they ain’t gonna be mere serfs-they plan on being part of the elite who control the statist apparatus-not having any rights never applies to them-it’s all rainbows,unicorns and puppies.
