Chicago Tribune: Repeal The 2A

Well there's nothing like avoiding the argument about rampant crime in your city.

Rather than engage in a debate and discussion about the the basic human right to self defense, the constitutional right to own a firearm (carved in stone, mostly, with yesterday's Heller decision), and Chicago's refusal to admit its ban on handguns contributes to crime and killings, the Chicago Tribune has announced that it believes the Second Amendment to the Constitution should be repealed.

To the editors at the Tribune, I have one response. If mine goes, YOURS goes. Yes, let's repeal that portion of the First Amendment having to do with a free press.

Want into a public meeting? The answer will be "who the hell are you and what gives you the right?"

You won't even be able to own a quill pen.
