Democrats erase 2nd Amendment from party platform

ReasonLike the 2004, 2008, and 2012 platforms, the latest version calls for various new gun controls, including extension of the federal background-check requirement to all gun transfers, expansion of the criteria that disqualify people from owning guns, re-enactment of a federal "assault weapon" ban, and repeal of the federal law that protects gun suppliers from civil liability based on criminal use of their products. But unlike those earlier platforms, this year's does not so much as mention the Second Amendment.

That the Democrats have become (again) a party of gun control should be obvious at this point. They aren't even pretending anymore.
