CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Wednesday there’s “no one” calling for the repeal of the Second Amendment, but he’s wrong.
He even called it “a lot of bunk” to suggest otherwise:
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. https://t.co/P2MYoY4EtO

However, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for the repeal of the Second Amendment just one day before Cuomo made his sweeping declaration.
In an op-ed for The New York Times, Stevens urged those participating in the March for Our Lives to “seek more effective and more lasting reform” by demanding “a repeal of the Second Amendment.”Tom Williams/Getty Images
And during Saturday’s March for Our Lives, student activists exclaimed guns “don’t protect” while the 11-year-old granddaughter of Martin Luther King Jr. declared she wanted to live in a gun-free world.
To be fair, I think most of us would like to live in a gun-free world. But when evil exists, such a proposition seems outlandish and on par with Stevens’ suggestion.
In any event, Cuomo should’ve done a little more homework before he posted that tweet.
