At a discussion at the University of Pennsylvania didn’t push back against the repeal of the 2nd Amendment.
During a discussion at the University of Pennsylvania on Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden stated that the 2nd Amendment has been interpreted “badly” and the nation has decided it can’t ignore the “prostitution” of the amendment.
Biden said, “I think there’s a 2nd Amendment. I think the 2nd Amendment is being very badly interpreted. It’s not consistent with what they’re — our founders intended, in my view. You saw Justice John Paul Stevens say that we should — because it’s been so prostituted, we should repeal the 2nd Amendment. It was about a standing militia. It’s a long story. I won’t go into all the legal side of that having taught it in law school. But there’s rational or irrational policy.”
He added, “What’s happened here is, the nation as a whole has decided it can no longer, in my view, continue to turn a blind eye to the prostitution of the 2nd Amendment here, and no longer can turn a blind eye to the enormous damage being done, not just in our schools, but on our streets, right here in Philly and Wilmington, Delaware, where I’m from, every night.”
The fact that Biden didn’t shoot down the repealing of the second amendment shows how he truly feels about it. He starts by saying I think there’s a second amendment but then goes onto explain why we shouldn’t have one. When he says militia he doesn’t mean how the founders interpreted it. The founders meant it to be any able-bodied Male 18-34 at that time and obviously can be looked at now as any adult over the age of 18. Besides that, the 2nd Amendment clearly states the word ‘people’.
Here is the 2nd Amendment
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.
Joe Biden nearly just called for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment that is unbelievable.
