(National Sentinel) Deflection: Conservatives, for years, have claimed that the Left secretly wants to ban all guns in America by repealing the Second Amendment.
Those claims were verified on Tuesday. Former liberal Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for that very thing in an op-ed in The New York Times.
“Concern that a national standing army might pose a threat to the security of the separate states led to the adoption of that amendment, which provides that ‘a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.’ Today that concern is a relic of the 18th century,” he wrote.
That relic argument again. Ever notice how liberals always say the Second Amendment’s right to keep and bear arms is outdated, but not their right to speak freely? Or worship as they please? Or be protected from self-incrimination?
From the sound of the screeching on the Left over the Trump campaign’s use of a data-mining firm, Cambridge Analytica, to obtain (legally) information about 50 million users, it’s obvious liberals still care about Fourth Amendment privacy rights.
But not the right to keep and bear arms. That’s a “relic.”
Anyway, others over this past weekend during the “March for Our Lives” demonstration in D.C. also stumped for gun bans, as evidenced by the signs they carried.
Like, “I’m sorry Obama didn’t come for your guns.”

Somehow CNN host and “newsman” Chris Cuomo didn’t see any of this or read Justice Stevens’ column.
“this is a lot of bunk. no one calling for 2A repeal. stop with the bogeymen. we need to stop the shootings and have a rational conversation about what can be done,” he tweeted.

That’s pretty tone deaf, especially for a hip, “woke,” liberal guy like Cuomo.
The Twitterverse appropriately lit him up, tweeting him Stevens’ column and those of several other publications and news reports — including from his own network — explaining that, yeah, liberals do want to repeal the Second Amendment.
“Bunk?” No. Fact.
A sad one, but a fact nonetheless.
The Left has been emboldened by — something — perhaps by their own misreading of the American political scene, much like they misread Trump’s victory.
They’re unmasking themselves now. No holds barred. Full-on Marxism. Take those guns, now!
This will, um, backfire on Democrats hugely. Which is why we are urging them to continue pushing for repeal. Most Americans do not support it and will be offended by Democratic Marxists calling for it.
Which is really happening, even if Chris Cuomo says it isn’t.
