President Trump just hit back at former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens.  The president tweeted a defense of the Second Amendment just a day after retired Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens called for its repeal.

THE SECOND AMENDMENT WILL NEVER BE REPEALED! As much as Democrats would like to see this happen, and despite the words yesterday of former Supreme Court Justice Stevens, NO WAY. We need more Republicans in 2018 and must ALWAYS hold the Supreme Court! – PDJT

FOX NEWS reports:

The former Supreme Court Justice wrote in an essay on the New York Times website that a repeal would weaken the National Rifle Association’s ability to “block constructive gun control legislation.”

STEVENS LOST 2008 RULING:

Stevens was on the losing end of a 2008 ruling in which the high court held that the Second Amendment gives individuals the right to own a gun for self-defense. He had previously called for changing the Second Amendment to permit gun control.

STEVENS WAS ON THE COURT FOR 35 YEARS:

 

Stevens said the decision in that case, District of Columbia v. Heller, “has provided the N.R.A. with a propaganda weapon of immense power.” Stevens retired from the court in 2010, after more than 35 years.

“They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment,” he wrote.

All we can say is that we’re thrilled Stevens isn’t on the Supreme Court anymore.
