The ‘March For Our Lives’ speakers and participants have all demanded stronger gun control, while claiming they are not suggesting the Second Amendment be eliminated. However, they have called for the downfall of the National Rifle Association.
Many retail stores have now implemented control measures on their own, or have stopped selling firearms and ammunition, and Citigroup, one of the largest banks in the U.S. announced its own set of “gun control measures” as well last week, declaring it will no longer do business with any retailer who does not abide by the bank’s rules on selling guns.
Sunday, one of the oldest and largest gun and ammunition manufacturers in the United States, Remington Outdoor Co., filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, citing falling sales, heavy debt and lawsuits tied to the Sandy Hook school shooting.
Tuesday, retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens published an op-ed and literally demanded the repeal of the Second Amendment, saying the original need for it is now just a a “relic of the 18th century.”
President Trump responded in a Twitter post Wednesday morning, saying it will never happen, tweeting, “THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED! As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY. We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court!”
