Can the Second Amendment be Repealed ?
The recent killings of young toddlers at a school in Connecticut has ignited a debate in America whether the second amendment should be repealed. There are a few people clamoring for stricter gun laws so hand guns and rifles can be controlled. I am afraid all this sounds pretty OK but my take on this is different. Firstly I don't think the second amendment which is sacrosanct in the USA will ever be repealed.The reason is simple, the NRA and a vast number of Americans feel that owning guns is a good thing and secondly the ownership of guns is so ingrained in the psyche of the American people that it is part of their life like the automobile.
