The words of the Second Amendment are more than 200 years old. In the 18th century the words had meaning, relevance, and purpose. In the 21st century they contribute to horror and hold the country hostage.
There comes a time when the meanings of words from a distant past are changed by the realities of the here and now. This is one of those moments. It cries out for courage and change. The Second Amendment needs modernization. It needs to change to reflect the threats of violence, the fear and the danger of this century. Surely, political scholars and legal minds of this era can rephrase the original wording and remind this country of the original purpose of the Founding Fathers. Amendment means change.
