An Economist/YouGov poll from showed that 39% of Democrats support the repeal of the 2nd Amendment.

Breitbart:

The WaPo reports the results of a February Economist/YouGov poll that showed 21 percent of Americans supported repealing the Second Amendment. When broken down by party affiliation, only eight percent of Republicans supported a repeal versus 39 percent of Democrats who favored it.

The process for approving the repeal of the Second Amendment requires three-quarters of the states or three-quarters of state legislatures to vote in favor of repealing it. And that only happens after two-thirds of the House of Representatives and two-thirds of Senate propose the repeal.

A proposed repeal can also begin with a convention of the states, where two-thirds of states propose it. But either way, it is going to take a lot more than one-fifth of Americans’ support to get it done.

This Poll comes back to light after former Supreme Court Justice John Stevens wrote an OP-ED for the New York Times calling for the repeal of the second amendment.
