Default Re: John Paul Stevens: Repeal the Second Amendment

Altering the Constitution by amendment is deliberately a difficult and lengthy process. 2/3 of Congress must propose and 2/3 of the states must ratify. Each state gets 1 vote. So 34 states must agree. 16 voted Democrat in 16. The math is simple.

That a former SC justice can make such a statement says far more about the former justice than the process.
