Texas A&M Law Professor: Time 'to Repeal and Replace Second Amendment'

Speaking in a gun violence symposium at University of Connecticut’s School of Law, Texas A&M law professor Mary Margaret Penrose said it’s time “to repeal and replace [the] Second Amendment.”

Penrose said this after expressing her frustration with the fact that President Obama has failed to pass more gun control in the eleven months since the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary.

According to a Connecticut news blog, Penrose said gun laws should be decided on a per-state basis, versus the overarching rules and laws that result from the current amendment: “The beauty of a states’ rights model solution is it allows those of you who want to live in a state with very loose restrictions to do so.” 

As Breitbart News reported on December 15, 2012, a repeal of the Second Amendment is possible and can begin as soon as the majority of the populations in the 50 states vote for the repeal of the amendment. After that, the repeal has to receive two/thirds vote in the House of Representatives and two/thirds vote in the Senate, and two/thirds of all state legislatures. 

Penrose said her problems with the Constitution are not limited to the Second Amendment. She “advocates redrafting the entire U.S. Constitution” in her law courses at Texas A&M.
