Sec­ond Amend­ment needs im­me­di­ate re­forms

The Mercury News - - Opinion -

The Sec­ond Amend­ment comes from a time when firearms could un­load a cou­ple of bul­lets per minute, rather than a cou­ple hun­dred. The dis­turbed men of that era would re­sort to a sword, rather than a gun. It also comes from a time when our lead­ers were wise enough to know that times would change, which is why they es­tab­lished a process for amend­ing that doc­u­ment in its fifth ar­ti­cle. It’s way past time to in­voke a change in the Sec­ond Amend­ment.
